3. He used poor technique that allowed Hardy to escape and mostly just gained and lost halfguard that entire fight.
4. This is the last fight GSP had where he didn't half ass trying to beat down his opponent. Alves is ridiculously hard to stop though so it didn't matter.
GSP only tries to put vicious beatings on his best opponents(Fitch, Penn, Alves) because it is dangerous to let them hang around. He mails it in against the guys who didn't deserve title shots like Hardy and Shields.
That is awesome, had me LMAO.
But I do agree with that point also, he didn't out-wrestle Kos so much as out-MMA him.
