    Vielen dank! GSP beat the piss out of Penn in their 2nd fight. And that was the fight Penn vowed to die in the cage. :-\

    I'd surely like to see more finishes but do understand that at the top it becomes much more difficult to finish an elite fighter.

    Fuck, maybe if you make your font larger your point will get better. No need to be a douche about it... although I guess you feel there is.

    In that "whole article" not once does he say anthing about actually finishing fights or the lack of. If you want to take his statement that "he gives it his all" and that's addressing it fine but it's not to me.

    Yea he was sure pushing for that final bell, just circling away from melendez in the 5th. I hate these bs decisions, he also coasted a bit in the 5th in the second Edgar fight and he should have lost that one as well imo.

    He's also not been fighting the no. 1 contenders either. He choked against Guida and decisioned Bendo in their first fight, so that is a false statement. Sure, he can finish brawlers who aren't anywhere near a title shot, but when you're constantly fighting the number 1 contender, then I'm sure it's tougher to get the finish.

    Vrrooom! Vrroooom!

    Against gatekeepers. He's never fought a top 5 guy in the UFC (none of the guys in the WEC were considered top 5 at the time either). He lost to Guida and barely beat Stephens. He wouldn't even be considered a #1 contender if he didn't hold that razor thin decision win over Bendo in the WEC.

    BJ's towel didn't get thrown in because he was gassed. BJ got the shit kicked out of him for 4 rounds and had nothing left for GSP.

    BJs corner kept on asking him "do you want this BJ" and BJ wouldnt respond anymore. Then they threw in the towel. He tapped, and in the most pussy way possible, especially after TO THE DEATH. You all forget that BJ was the favorite going in to this fight on these boards, not many had GSP winning, and then BJ got fucking waxed and then all you hear is greasing and then when that wore out all you heard was "it didnt matter anyway GSP was bigger".

    Bendo is awesome. Retards here will complain about every UFC main card because they have nothing better to do. As the sport evolves there will be more and more decisions since everyone is getting more well rounded.
