GSP Has Evolved Into Tim Sylvia

Methodical, effective, and lackluster.

Timmy would stand on the outside and jab. With his height, it was extremely difficult to take him down. He frustrated opponents for 5 rounds while retaining the belt.

GSP stands on the outside and jabs. His wrestling is the best in MMA, and his opponents are afraid to be taken down. He frustrates opponents for 5 rounds while retaining the belt.

Maybe his new nickname could be TSP or "Georgy."

The guy keeps winning, Thats all I care about, i dont give 2 shits if fans thinks hes boring, I would do the same thing, be safe and win. He knows he can so he does it. Thats what champions do, they dont go out swinging being idiots.

Hehe.

Well, he's certainly not winning many new fans or selling record amounts of PPVs that's for sure.

But I think comparing him to Tim Sylvia is a bit crazy:

1. Georgy shows up in fantastic shape every fight

2. GSP's competition is much more legit

The thing with GSP and why he's so popular (imo) is because of his personality outside of the ring.

He's got charisma (not saying he's my favorite) and a lot of casual fans love him, even though they couldn't tell you why.

He will never go down as the GOAT for some of the reasons you stated though.

Thanks for the LOL!

Youre comparing gsp to Sylvia lmao?
Sylvia won the belt from arlovski and lost it to a 44 year old couture. And not only that but sylvia wasnt really good at anything dont compare him to someone whos good at almost everything.

ugh...ive been quiet during this whole ''GSP sucks cuz he dont finish!!!'' thing but this is really starting to get old

this is MMA, not bloodsport, as long as he is winning he will always be at the top, the only person who could be ahead of him in rankings at this time is AS

other than AS, GSP is or would be the best fighter in MMA right now, if you dont like it either a) stop watching his fights or b) stop watching MMA

decisions will become more and more normal as time goes by, deal with it!

This guy is obviously a troll, hates GSP and wants to stir up the forums today. I'm not falling for it.

Its not hard to understand what the poster is saying. GSP fights not to lose. Its effective but boring as HELL!

We all know its the truth but some will never admit it

No i love watching GSP jab for 25 mins! (sarcasm)

But i also agree that Tim was at least more entertaining because of his SIZE!

The dude is a monster so you think he can do something NASTY at anytime.

But the main thing about GSP that annoys me is that people have the nerves to say he is THE BEST P4P fighter...

It blows me away on how people could actually believe that when he is to F'ing scared to leave 1 weight class.... I REALLY dont understand peoples logic...

At first i thought it was just the French Canadians just trying to convince themselves after watching guys like AS and JBJ and Aldo actually KICK ASS and prove that there so much better than there opponent that they can ACTUALLY finish him....

But sadly enough theres more then just the French that believe he is...

Sig credit to my Homie! limba!
