You're hitting people the most, but you're nowhere near top in KO's, knockdowns, finishes, etc...
Good points, but it DOES show that he doesn't just lay & pray...when he gets you down, he goes to work.

you can really twist stats to make it a positive or negative .. who knows what this stat tells us .. gsp has pillow fists? well, he did smash kos' orbital into a pulp and kos is still not fighting .. it could say that gsp is not concerned so much with throwing finishing blows, which 5 or so unamimous decisions in a row would seem the case .. what we do know is that gsp hasn't lost in a while and by many is regarded as the greatest ww champ of all time ... many make the argument that him and anderson are the interchangeable p4p greats right now ... so stats are great, but gsp has proven that he is a great fighter, he just turned 30 and probably has a few more years ahead of him .. in the end, haters gonna hate ....

Not sure where that puts him.

Fitch has 23 wins, and has finished 10 of them.

Sonnen has 25 wins and finished 10.

So GSP isn't top, but he is definitely in the conversation.
hahah love the last stat... So GSP has about the same finishing rate as sonnen against tougher competition... I love that cause most of the people who call GSP boring are more some reason sonnen fan boys/girls... cough foxy cough

just telling it like it is.... I actually like chael and the movie character persona he has made himself the last few years... Hes not the most exiting fighter though... Has he ever finished a fight in the UFC? He couldnt even finsh filho when paulo was talking to his imaginary friends inside the wec cage instead of fighting.

lol @ using Filho against him.
He has NEVER been finished in nearly 30 fights.
Can't hate a guy for not finishing when the opponent has never been.

Dan Miller has also NEVER been finished.

Okami hasn't been finished in 8 years (And only once in his career)

only Anderson has finished Nate in the last 7 years
(Though Sonnen should have finished that one IMO)

So it isn't like the guy has been getting easy fights with guys who always get finished.
