Back when the UFC heavyweight division was laughable. GSP is the reigning and 6 time defending welterweight champion. All of his challengers are still in the UFC and considered among the best of the best in the world in their weight classes.

Tim was UFC champ when Pride had the steeper and more talented heavyweight division.

You simply cannot compare the two, to do so is plain ignorance.
Your comparing Skill Sets, which is not why this thread was created, but ya....

It about there styles of only Not Finishing the fight when they have all the tools to

When you make the title of your thread something as provocative as you did one can only expect people to overreact. Insinuating that GSP had to evolve to become Tim Sylvia (in the title) is clearly a jab at GSP. Your logic may be sound but the title was clearly intended to cause controversy, regardless of how you explained your position.

Tim does finish/get finished in fights though, I think hes only been to a decision like 5/6 time out of 30+ fights?

Frankie Edgar, thats the guy who you can compare to GSP re not finishing fights and fighting to not lose. Although hes a bit better to watch.

The last exciting GSP fight IMO was his second fight against Penn. Since then, I've wanted to fall asleep during each and every single one afterwards.

So provocative as to engage an individual's "flight or flee" response and to disengage an individual's intelligence and self control?

I think you had a little trouble with self control when you made this threads title.

Unless the title isn't actually serious? Or at least not to be taken 100% literally.

I made a thread titled 'BJ Penn would beat Jon Jones' or something similar recently. Inside was a photo of Penn and Jones messing about with Penn holding him in a RNC for the camera.

The logic inside Sicilans thread was sound, the title brought you in. Can't we all just get along?
