I know I’m not the best (yet, ;-D), I was never the fastest, or strongest, or most athletic, or most technical or anything like that. Go ahead and ask any of my high school or college wrestling coaches. I was never picked 1st in dodgeball or basketball or soccer or football games growing up but one thing I always had was the will power and determination to NEVER give up, to not be afraid to open up my heart and give all of myself, to not hold anything back for the swim back to shore.

Really? Last 30 seconds of round 5 he didn't throw a punch. After 4 very close rounds. It's not that he can't finish opponents it's that he's not willing to take a risk much like GSP. If he thinks he's up he goes into cruise control.

I know both Bendo and GSP fight very tough guys that are hard to stop but I think both of them could finish more fights if they weren't so concerned with losing.

at least it seams to me like he tries hard to get the finish. its just that he has fought some seriously touch guys in his last several fights. all those fighters were guys that are really tough to finish
