Finally a reporter has the balls to ask gsp the hard questions. Is he finally going to finish anyone by knockout, or do your usual minimum.


Gsp gives the typical response, about why doesn't the reporter fight in the octagon. Funny how many people fight in the same cage and finish fights, and many of gsp's opponents have been knocked out right after fighting gsp, but he gets a pass for his boring point fighting.


He'd get a lot less flack of he actually put some weight behind his punches, and tries to go for the knockout, submission fucking anything, finish a fight, it's been 5 years george.

Why don't YOU fight in the Octagon?  You are the King Of Fighters, after all.

I think the "reporter" was a little out of line in the verbage he chose. Still good to see someone asking the questions that are not PC.

$aftey fir$t.  And I can't blame him.  He's there to win and makes a mint doing that.  Why take chances if you don't have to?  It can be frustrating to watch, but losing an exciting fight is a lot more damaging to his career than winning a boring one.

Link to Story? Vid?

And its true about losing an exciting fight is much worse for gsp's career than winning a boring one.

GSP had to look out for number 1 first. Why should heb pander to the "fans" who will turn on him the second he loses. The UG will erupt with threads about him being overrated and the like. We all know how it works here. People will complain when he wins and people will complain when he loses. Lose/lose situation for him. Phone Post

The King of Fighters does not need to prove himself to you! He's already King! What more can he do??

Link ONE vid of any of his fights?

You were saying?

Zed Wayne Zed - This is taking the keyboard warrior thing to a new level,
but in person, by a MMA blogger.

You have the gall to talk to one of the best ever like that?
Really bothered me.
Blogger, if you are on here,
you're a bitch.

GSP handled it with class,
but you could tell by the eyes it rustled his jimmy.

Why the hell did GSP have to do both his own translations and the reporters?

You don't think he has the right to voice his opinion? Do you believe gsp gives his absolute best and doesn't hold back when he fights?

If mma were actually bigger, he'd get a lot more shit for not finishing anyone in 5 years. I don't understand why the media stopped asking him why he doesn't finish fights, he needs to feel that pressure to perform.


People pay good money to watch a fight, not a point collecting contest.

Everyone knows exactly what they're getting with GSP by now, yet he still is the biggest draw in mma by far. Maybe people feel like they're getting exactly what they're paying for and enjoy it. Phone Post

Anyone else get the feeling that the only fighting "King of Fighters" does is wrestling his xxxl underwear out of his ass crack?

I challenged OP to a screen name bet and I said if I lost I would even buy him a blue name as well as let him change mine. He dick tucked like all shitty trolls do.

I have to say though he is GSP's biggest fan, he searches the internets for every interview GSP gives and he's even been learning a little French by listening to all the radio shows GSP appears on in Montreal. Phone Post

GSP is far more exciting in his decisions than Bendo is and Bendo has MORE decisions in a row. Bendo's last seven fights were decisions.

So onne of two things is going on here. You guys are closet gays that like guys with long hair and swag or you are sour BJ fans still crying over GSP beating BJ's ass to the death twice.

Losers.

He doesn't just lay there but he doesn't take unnecessary risks.

Deal with it. Phone Post

Yes.

Unfortunately, OP lost to this man of a man in the finals:

 

TOS states you shouldn't be impersonating anyone, OP. You need to relinquish your SN.

hahah this guy isnt the first person to ask GSP this type of question, infact i think it was a fan question.

the way he worded it made him sound like a fan anyway, how many people finished sheilds, Condit, Ect ect.

i know hardy has been finished before that seems to be the fight that everyoe refers to.

Im suprised he doesnt want to finish more, if history shows anything with gsp its that the longer he lets his opponents remain in the fight the more susceptible to KO/subs HE becomes...

If i was him i would think the safest route would be to get in and get out, and not let someone get a god shot in that would floor him ala the serra fight...

GSP at this point doesn't even need to shift out of second gear to beat most guys. He had a scare with Condit but how long since he's had any shaky moments in cage? I'd love to see the guy finish but realistically he has almost cleaned out the division and will be looking for new challenges I think. Randy Couture made a career out of doing the same thing and everyone loves him.
