Aside from Lay and Pray, nothing is known til it's experienced and for fighters to never take risks leaves them at the local mma scene fighting in bars for $100. Being "brave" as you call it is why there is a sport in general. I would just like to see more risk across the board. IMHO
I guess if it was called Mixed Fighting, I could understand your point, but it is in fact Mixed Martial Arts
which have very different bases where some are quite defensive in nature and others offensive. Not being aggressive or avoiding confrontation do not necessarily mean a match that is not exciting. I highly doubt GSP is scared one bit of his opponents.
Also, I do not understand your throwing Werdum in there as a risk taker. If you are referring to the Fedor fight, the only one taking a risk there was Fedor. There is a guy who would have made your point better.
