Actually GSP was always known for being a weak minded fighter with issues. Matt said and UFC always called him on it. It's been a issue. He is getting better now. That he is a yes and no guy with his trainers. But having no Vaseline might put him in negitive again .

I think there's a difference between intelligence & strength of will. I can be the dumbest guy in the world, but have a butt-load of confidence & never let you convince me that 2+2 does not, in fact, equal 5. By the same token, someone can be smart & a brilliant game-planner, but not have high enough self-esteem to do what he wants.

That being said, I personally believe that GSP has nothing to do with the gameplans. I give all that credit to Greg Jackson. The man is a genius MMA tactician!

I really hope that he makes weight for the GSP fight, but I really don't see any reason to bring up what happened with Thiago prior to his fight with Matt Hughes. That fight's long over, what's done is done.

Just my two lincolns.

Later.

He looks stronger but I doubt he is. Matt would have a good idea, since he has fought both.

Yeah, I agree. GSP is a robot. He'll exectue any gameplan that he's given - to perfection.

Thiago has a chance if it stays standing, but GSP has a huge advantage if it goes to the ground. I'm thinking GSP by decision, Alves will be taken down at some point in each round, and I don't have much faith in his ability to get back up. Of course, he did show a marked improvement in TD defense against Koscheck (who for some reason tried to strike with him early) so you can't totally count him out.

I don't know man. People forget that Koscheck took taht fight on two weeks notice. I think had he been preparing for Alves the entire time, he would've taken the fight. I honestly believe that.

With that said, since I dislike GSP and Alves both, here's to hoping that they both hit each other and knock each other out at the same time.

It was only 6 months ago. It was Matt's last fight.. and Thiago only beaten Koz since then.. And Koz is far down the ladder than Matt IMO.
