I disagree. I think that GSP is faster and just as strong. GSP will take him down and totally dominate him on the ground. Without vaseline of course.

Did Alves come in heavy against DeSouza, Hironaka, Lytle, and Parisyan? No. I've stated before that I really hope he takes this seriously by making weight, because I think that Alves' strength alone can pose some problems for GSP and it would be nice to see him tested.

With that said, I don't see GSP losing to Alves. GSP possess the unique ability to stick with a gameplan much better than just about any other fighter out there. That, coupled with his freakish talent and ability to continually develop a full skillset, I see it going past three rounds, but not going to a decision. I think that GSP will wear him down after three......and sub him. So, just my opinion, I think that Alves will come up short in his title shot (I can't spell it the way he {Alves} said it when he went into the Octagon after GSP's win over Penn....the ****'s come out).

To be honest with you, Alves himself bringing it up on Inside MMA really has no bearing on the matter for me, him not making weight for his fight with Matt Hughes has no relevence on his fight with GSP, it had no relevence on his fight with Koscheck either; whether he brought it up or not. Just becuase he said it doesn't make it relevant, it was something that he felt he needed to discuss, but it doesn't matter anymore... ...that's just my opinion.

But, rest assured, it's not the end of the world whether it's relevent or not.

Later.
that might be the longest post I have EVER seen from you Mr Williams

Really? Just because of the greasing? That doesn't have anything to do with his ability to gameplan a fight. Even if he did tell GSP to grease, the gameplan was still sound. Even if he did commission the (shudder) nipple tweak, he still did a fantastic job of training Rashad for his fights.

I have a tendency to root against his fighters for various reasons, but I've got a lot of respect for Greg.

1) I'm not sure about him yet. Dont worry with trainers it takes my assessment much longer, I'm only just in favour of Matt Hume

2) and I think you should put that in your siggie

Just have to laugh bro.


I just laugh at anyone who thinks a little vaseline made the difference in any of GSP's fights.

BJ GOT ****ING WRECKED.

Bottom line. GSP could have warn a sandpaper coat around his body and Penn would still been killed.

/endrant.

Thiago won't make weight I'm calling it

EDIT: I'll add that it was cheating but it didn't make a difference in the fights. GSP should be punished maybe by a fine or something
