When i did a seminar with BJ a few years ago, i thought his jj was amazing on top. But i can honestly say, that GSP has some of the best on top jj that i have seen in the UFC. His passes are almost perfect, and his technique is almost flawless. If you carefully examine his ground game, he leaves his neck glued to an opponents body, as he tries to pass. For the few moments when he postures up, he is effective with his strikes and is very very difficult to submit because he is discplined enough not to get careless. He also makes his opponents feel his weight on bottom, because he is really pressing his weight on them. I think GSP will have a difficult time against Silva, but i would love to see him against Henderson. In terms of Lay and Pray, if you look at Fitch, Serra or Alves's face after their respective fights, i would think they had something a little more then Fall and Stall.
Anyhow, i am up for a sig bet on GSP vs. Hendersen if this fight ever happens.
