Don't get me wrong, that's a list of tough guys to finish, so yeah I'm not saying I expected him to finish every single one of them. My thing is that I watched his fight with Hardy, and he barely did anythign at all. I just don't get it. We've seen the guy TKO Serra with knees to the body and really punished him, we've seen him punish BJ (BJ's chin is just incredible, hence why I didnt expect him to win by anything other than a decision against BJ) but in the Hardy fight, he barely did ****e. He didn't really ground and pound, he just sat there, tried to improve position, and on a few occasions went for a sub. That kimura was his only real attempt at finishing the fight it seemed like.
I think an aggressive GSP is a dangerous one. I think if he chose to go out guns blazing he could seriously end fights. He's just been playing it safe lately. Then again I could be wrong.
