i would rather watch chris leben lose 20 fights than watch GSP win 20 fights, because chris leben puts it on the line and really fights. GSP fights not to lose.
LOL .... yeah, and chris leben would love to win 20 fights gsp style .. he puts it all on the line cuz he has to .... he ain't skilled like gsp ... people love watching gsp fight ... the ppv buys say so ... he was the headliner for a card with not a lot of names and probably sold a tonne of ppv's ... so you are probably in the minority ... LOL

Definitely true.

The fans actually got to choose the Fight of the Night at UFC 124 over at UFC .com...and guess who they picked?

GSP vs Kos...

However, Dana thought they should have had all voted for Dan Miller vs Sean Pierson, so he effectively fired the fans from ever getting to vote for the Fight of the Night again.

Default Quit hatin' and look at it in perspective people. Goodness!

GSP looked wonderful. Totally dominant. I believe that he's the most dominant champion in the UFC right now. Say what you will about his accent, the one incident where everyone chooses to believe BJ's excuses (please keep in mind that BJ quit), or that he plays it safe. His performance on Saturday night was nothing short of remarkable. If that was the "New Josh Koscheck", he lost whatever credibility he had after rolling through opponents since his last loss to GSP.

I've said it before, GSP follows a game/fight plan better than ANYONE in the sport....and that's exactly what he did, followed the plan that was set before him to beat Koscheck.

I don't think, as much as I admire Matt and the legacy that he has in the UFC, that there is a welterweight in the UFC that can beat GSP....based on what we've seen.

Overall, it was a good night of fights for the UFC.

Later.
