Here we go again. :sarcastic07:

This has been discussed over and over and over and over and . . . well you get the point. So for the sake of keeping your thread going I will give my worthless .02 again.

MMA is a sport. It is not a rehearsed fake fight. So, if you (and I don't specifically mean you) are looking for just entertainment value, go watch WWE. Our sport is full of real fighters, trying to WIN a fight. They are not there to entertain us. Now, most fans find enjoyment from watching a real fight. Most REAL fans understand that sometimes even the best fighters put on boring fights based on their opponents. GSP is one of the best P4P fighters in the world. He is also one of the smartest. He always has an excellent plan to win his fights. Now unfortunately for us, the rest of the division sucks at wrestling compared to him. So, what does he do? Does he use his wrestling to continue to dominate fights or does he jeapodize his odds by entertaining the CASUAL fan?

If it were me . . . I would keep winning fights.

Bottom line . . . until someone can stop GSP's takedowns, he will continue to win fights in this fashion. This does not make him boring. This makes him effective. To me, it is the rest of the divisions job to figure out how to stop GSP.

So, I end by asking you . . . why should GSP change his strategy if he is winning fights? Before you answer, remember that these are real fights and not scripted fights. Also, remember that the goal of these fights are to win . . . remember.
We are not saying for him to change his strategy, we are saying he should look for opponents that pose a challenge to him, like moving to MW. Most of us dont want to see him dominating the WW division for ever, not even his most loyal fans, we want him to seek tougher oponents, Like BJ Penn and Randy Couture have done all there lives. They are the ones taking all the risks to prove they are the best and they are the ones who will be remembered through history. They dont care if they are significantly out weighed by there opponent, they just want to fight the best in the world.
