Posted by a crazy person, in another thread :

"I'm just not a big fan of GSP."

In the context of that other thread, I assumed he meant that he didn't think GSP is as good a fighter as other people say he is, and not that he disliked his style, his face, or his attitude. Given that...

Dude, that's crazy. He's friggin' obliterated everybody he's ever fought. And he hasn't been fighting chumps, either.

- Karo Parisyan, at the time he fought GSP, had only ever lost to one guy: Sean Sherk. Karo has only lost once since then (in a fight that ranks among the best I've ever seen, actually).

- Sean Sherk is 31-2. Thirty-one. And two. The two are Matt Hughes and Georges St. Pierre. Sean Sherk is a monster, guys. He's just a small monster, that's all...

- Frank Trigg, at the time he fought GSP, had only ever lost to Matt Hughes and "Mach" Sakurai. GSP completely embarrassed Trigg. It was insane. Seriously. Total domination from start to finish.

- B.J. Penn was of course the guy to snap Matt Hughes' 13-match winning streak. He was also the first guy to ever beat up GSP. And he lost.

The only bump in the swath of destruction GSP has carved through the best 170-lb fighters on the planet was the first of two fights against the guy generally considered to be one of the greatest fighters in the UFC, ever.

In the fight GSP lost - the only fight he's lost - he was going toe-to-toe with Hughes and had a half-second brain-cramp. Of course, a half-second brain-cramp is usually fatal against Matt Hughes. People are impressed with Chris Lytle for not getting totally tent-spiked by Hughes, and Hughes will probably be the underdog in his eventual rematch with GSP. I just hope Matt Serra doesn't get hurt.

Georges St. Pierre: #2 fighter in the world, pound-for-pound. Bring on Diego.

Hell yes I can't wait to see GSP vs Diego, but first I can't wait to see Diego walk through Koscheck!

I know that the welterweight div is stacked, but I really don't think that the UFC will be able to find too many competitive matchups for him @ 170...

IMO, he owns Hughes in a rematch... Will beat Diego by whatever means he chooses... Fitch, Karo, Kos, and many of the other very talented WW's are just not in the same caliber especially concerning all-around skills...

I know he's just won the title, but I hope that after a few title defenses he makes his way up to 185...

Franklin / GSP, anyone?

A.Silva / GSP, maybe??

GSP, the UFC's next multi-weightclass champion???

Excatly my thoughts although I don't think Diego will walk through like you said. I think Koscheck will be much improved from his last fights and will acutally give Diego a run for his.

If he didnt have a cool attitude I wouldnt cheer for him either, no matter how good he is. But he is an all around good guy. Your entitled to your opinion of course, but it is kind of hard to grasp.

If you watch of all of St. Pierre's fights from his debut against Parisyan to his last fight with Hughes, you can see how much he has come.

Aside from that loss against Hughes the first time, he is constantly improving his game. However, not only is he talented and a hard worker, but he is also very intelligent. He is very good at exposing his opponent's weaknesses and controlling the fight.

i can see the guys point..
the guy seems too squeaky clean for my taste.

i like my fighters (how gay does that sound) to have a little attitude with them.

and to quote Airplane!

"boy: do you want some cream in your coffee?"
"Girl: no thank you, i like my coffee liky my men"

I couldn't agree more.

GSP stuffed several Sherk takedowns, and had some VIOLENT takedowns of his own. He completely owned Sherk at wrestling.

He made Trigg look like an amateur. GSP's only loss is to Matt Hughes, which he avenged quite handily.

Ya'll fukn Crazy?

GSP is all round brilliant. You dont hate on Captain America for being 'nice'.

GSP took the PISS out of hughes in that last fight, superman punches, leg sweeps, spinning back kicks, he has an attitude, he is exciting,
otherwise he wouldnt have put on such a show.

the kid has heart.

dont hate him cus he's good.
