For fans who want to see fight.Call me a troll or not a reel mma fan (I'm a fight fan, sorry) but, for the fans who grew up watching fedor, wand, liddell, gomi, or even hughes.. its sad to see what gsp has done to neglect away from that. I'm happy he took his game to a whole nother level, but, in doing so, he has used his vastly improved all round skill set to use it as defense, and amount no offense if his life depended on it. Its sad to see, cause growing up, George "Rush" St. PIERRE was a killer with a very dynamic striking game mixed with wrestling, overwhelming and devastating gnp, and an agressive submission gAme. He is not that anymore, and is proud of it. I don't hate or even nvy the man, he did what he had to do to make millions, but also changed the sport into something it was never meant to be. He has made an era for the tremendous athletes with good wrestling to dominate and neutralize a more well rounded fighter and call themself the best fighter in the world (although gsp is honest, and says mixed martial artist, and not a fighter). The new era of mma is what gsp is and what it will continue to become until he is gone. Then once he is gone I just pray this sport goes back to what it used to be, and what we grew up falling in love with.

Georges is not the only guy who wrestlefucks people. If he retires another will take his place eventually. Stupid premise. Phone Post

Yes because one of the biggest ppv sellers retiring is good. GSP can have boring fights sometimes but doesn't deserve the hate he gets

Also I don't understand people hating of George because he wins his fights. He is always working he just makes sure he doesn't play the other fighters game. It's smart. Nick is a smart fighter too, he does things to convince people to play his game. Ie calling them bitch, flipping them off, swatting them after the bell. He makes it happen in a different way but it usually works. Last night George's game won. Phone Post

What kind of fighting are you a"fight fan" of? Boxing? Kickboxing? Muay Thai?

MMA blends several styles of fighting. Obviously, an opponent is expected to be able to defend against those styles. It really creates boring fights when a fighter is so outclassed in a discipline that he gets overwhelmed and does almost nothing to fight back. The fighter should really work on their glaring flaws and fix the problem instead of making excuses or talking shit about their opponent.

Carlos Condit's fight last night was an example of a well-rounded fighter keeping a fight exciting because he could counter his opponent. There was also a fight that was the complete opposite. One of the fighters didn't have an answer for any part of the fight. Phone Post

i just think the talent is getting better and better n GSP is fighting all top guys, the welter weight division is prolly the most stacked n talented division in the ufc and it gets harder to finish guys when the division is so deep. GSP does what he does to win n stays busy, it aint like hes doing a lay n pray all five rds. i like GSP n hes a true champion

The problem isn't GSP, or Hendricks, or a bunch of other guys. The problem is that judges score a takedown (even one that results in no damage) with the same weight as a strike that rocks someone. If you look at the Hendricks v Condit fight, how many times did Hendricks do anything once he got the takedown? A takedown with no punishment delivered is the same as two fighters circling each other but rewarding the fighter who initiated the circling because due to his "aggression" he got the other fighter to do what he wanted.

Sometimes? He hasn't had a good fight since fitch. He refuses to be the gsp we used to get amped up to watch. We will never see fights like that again. And I also forgot to say, some of you are the bigtest hypocrites in the world. Shit on guys like askren, riddle, shields etc. But praise gsp why? Cause he can do a superman jab then follow up with a leg kick as he moves to the side? Guraentee you if that was fitch, askren or anyone else like that that fought diaz last night, you guys would be shitting on them like there is no tomorrow. Hell, if it was gsp that fought mills instead of riddle that night you guys would have had multiple orgasms, but it wasn't so you shit on the others. Major hypocrites

Are you serious? Condit-GSP was a great fight. Diaz-GSP was ok not great but ok. Just because someone isn't trading punches doesn't mean it isn't an exciting fight

You try to get a tremendous athlete with amazing skill set all round that only uses it to neutralize you and mount no offense what so ever off of you. Hell, if that as damien maia last night same thing would of happend. When you get a sick athlete and combine it with amazing skill set, but only uses it to stop your attack and not use his is almost impossible.

GSP hit Diaz a lot harder last night than he hit jay Hieron in the fight you posted. Diaz is just a tough opponent to finish.
