In light of hmb's thread, and this post in particular (below), I feel that it is my duty to make this thread.

WOW! I doubt an identical GSP thread would have so much momentum.

I don't care if it's not as popular, I know there's plenty of UGers out there who, like me, love GSP.

 

War GSP!!!!

No high school or collegiate wrestling experience, and yet he's by far the best wrestler in MMA.

Hard work, respect, humility - all traits of a true martial artist, and Georges embodies those traits more than anyone in MMA today.

Love him or hate him, the sport would be in big trouble without him.  He's easily the PPV king of MMA, and he did it without shooting his mouth off and being controversial like Brock and Mayweather did.

I used this .gif to explain to someone how the superman punch can be so effective. BJ raising his leg to check a kick says it all.

GSP fans are not Just Bleed fans.  We are educated, cultured martial arts fans that appreciate a neutralizing, dismantling performance over 5 rounds as much as a brutal finish.

Georges delivers both.  He owns Matt Hughes' soul with 2 finishes, but also gives certain fighters a reality check with his "boring" decision victories.

Take Fitch for example.  Fitch can claim that Hendricks' victory was lucky, and that he just got caught.  He can't say that about GSP.  GSP dominated him in every facet of MMA - he rocked him on the feet several times, thoroughly outwrestled him, and permanently sent Fitch to the back of the WW line.

Remember what people were saying about Alves heading into UFC 100?  He KTFO'd Hughes and dominated Kos, and people were saying that he was the man to beat GSP.

They claimed that GSP couldn't handle his explosive striking, and that Georges wouldn't be able to take him down.

Wrong

Wrong

Wrong

 

Alves was on a 7 fight winning streak before GSP.  He's now 2-4 in his last 6.  

Notice how nobody ever actively campaigns for a GSP rematch?  Because they know they can't beat him.

Not only that but he also shut down Thiago Alves entirely while dealing with a pulled groin halfway through the fight. He soundly beat Shields (should've still been 50-45) who repeatedly gouged his eye. He bloodied up his toughest test to date in Carlos Condit, came back from adversity and showed the heart of a champion. He made Penn quit on a stool - unaware of where he was. He broke Koscheck's orbital bone with A JAB.

The fight with Fitch was more lopsided than Cain/JDS II even.

 

Agreed.  Georges has faced adversity many times and always perseveres.

 

And timely that you just referenced the Alves fight, because it's one of my favourite GSP performances and I just posted about it. So many doubters and haters before that fight, and he proved them all wrong.
