    Good point Doc my guess would be he learned karate first and is the base on how he applies other arts.

    Dr. MMA
    I know GSP gives a lot of credit to his Karate for many things such as his striking, takedowns, his timing, and his ability to absorb body punches, but I rarely ever see any videos of him actually practicing Karate unless you count him doing flying kicks ala the Karate kid for primetime episodes.

    Also all of GSP's coaches are pretty well publicized. For example, his overall MMA coaches are Firas and Greg Jackson (although it's primarily the former), Phil Nurse for his MT, John Danaher (with Estima helping) for his BJJ, Freddie Roach and Howard Grant for his boxing, and Jonathan Chaimberg (with Pierre Roy helping) for his strength and conditioning. I have no clue who his Karate coach is though. Does he overcredit his Karate (given that he perhaps doesn't practice it as much as he says) or am I reading too much into it because either it hasn't been televised or I am forgetting actual footage?

    Two years without standing? How about Diaz with whom he stood for about half the fight, Condit as well he stood with a lot. Just pointing out that he does stand with people.

    I refer you to this quik

    and for sure all history sucks...cause that is what I said. Full of reading to far into shit today I see Yukon.
    Can't really call it a trend when he was out injured for a good portion of it. The only trend he sticks to is he takes the fight to where ever his opponent is weakest.

    Anyone else notice this with Machida as well? He took Tito down with ease in their fight; I think he really did himself a disservice focusing entirely on his striking when he showed so much potential in his takedowns. If he really developed strong takedowns, it would make his striking even more dangerous since it would add a whole new dimension to his attack.

    I have a very good single, a very good double and very good penetration.

    ^Basically. He dropped him once with a straight right but I think it caught him a bit off guard and Alves wasn't in any danger whatsoever of being TKO'd. Other than that GSP landed barely anything significant while standing.
