    GSP continues to be the PPV king. For such a boring fighter, he still generates a lot of fan interest, no?

    on the flip side.. chuck may have serious damage to his brain and it could very well affect his quality of life as he gets older.. is pleasing the fans and "going out on your shield" more important than being a fully functioning human being?


    WHABAM. this is dead on. but i think to chuck its important to him to be that one fighter that gave it his all... no matter the consequence. just my opinion though for all i know he regrets not retiring sooner and preventing some of the damage that it might have done.

    If you're riding out fights to prevent brain damage then you're in the wrong sport.
    A lot o fguys have looked at this scenario and hung em up and thats ok but if you're gonna continue to fight and thats where you're heads at then you might as well retire.
    You wanna fight for a living then fight to win. You dont then you can order the Payperviews like the rest of us.

    I agree that GSP is more conservative but the only fight that was "without a doubt finishable" IMO was the Hardy fight. And GSP said after that he would have had to break a bone to do it and didn't want to.

    Not finishing Diaz, Condit, and Shields is nothing to be ashamed of.

    I appreciate GSP's style. It takes a hell of a lot of work and fight IQ to do what he does. When it comes to MMA, he is one of the greatest. I enjoy watching him shut other guys down and physically dominating them.

    But.

    I love guys who fight angry, who fight hard, and fight to finish. Nothing like that pure violence and aggression with technique.


    Edit: and long live the Iceman.

    Man, I miss Liddell flurries, overhands, and body shots.

    It truly depends upon what you want as a legacy, if you are willing to say you sacrificed it all for the fans then yes it could be. If you are content with just winning then risking that may not be.
    Guys like Ali who truly did give his all in the ring have been lauded as the absolute best while guys like the Klitschko's are deemed to be good but boring.

    "Go out and fight. Have fun. Knock people out. Submit them. Beat them. I don't care. Just go try to finish a fight."
    That is why everyone loves Chuck...and he is right. Atleast try to finish
