And you're telling me that you don't think GSP is trying to do damage? Shields tries to do damage and open up submissions too, he just has no power. Again, you have to be pretty stupid to think that a fighter is going to work to get into a dominate position, in a goddamn fight, to chill out and look busy to win on points instead of trying to actually finish the fight and get the fuck outta there with a definite victory. That doesn't even make sense. Seriously, just think about it. I mean, holy shit.
And lol @ a boxing fan talking about not trying to finish fights when a pussy like mayweather is one of boxing's biggest draws.
I said "prime" Matt Hughes in my second post, have you seen his slast few fights? Mainly him vs serra, that was the very definition of LnP. "Prime" Matt Hughes was finishing fights, not the recent one.
GSP has "okay" striking skills, Shields has none whatsoever. It's not really far fetched trying to waste time, because other than KO or submission, you can win by points. You would be surprised how many fighters have this mentality.
At least Mayweather is a draw, can sell fights, something MMA fighters should take note of. God that Sonnen guy is annoying, even stealing lines from comedians, hope AS toys with him.
And have you heard of that guy James Toney?
