GSP Forces Another Fighter Into 100% Defense Role

NogeraIsBrazilNogeraIsBrazil Posts: 199Free
Every GSP fight you will notice his opponent come out "fighting". But at the end of the fight, that fighter will leave "defending".

In GSP fights the first couple rounds you will see defeat phase in and his opponents will do less offense and more defense. It tends to turn into 100% defense very fast.

Tonight Diaz showed some good defense. But nearly all of the offense was done by GSP. Like most people, Diaz knew that if he opened up too much GSP would capitolize and win the fight easy. Opponents of GSP tend to notice they are going to lose very early and decide the new game plan is to simply "stay alive".

    100% Defense implies he has no offence, If Diaz had no offence why was GSP's face beat up?

    GSP embodies imposing ones will on another. Unfortunately lately his will is to win the safest way possible.

    Diaz's best round was R3 or R4 (don't remember which one), that's not the start of the fight.

    Well to keep the post short I used generalities instead of breaking down every single fight GSP has ever had. Thanks for trolling, cya kid

    I'm implying immaculate records aren't enough to keep you in the UFC, see Jon Fitch. Fighting like that isn't gonna accomplish his goal of changing the face of MMA as we know it unless encouraging fighters to point fight counts. Won't go down in a positive light in the history books.

    You are very correct-anyone who has any fighting experience realizes just how smart & good GSP really is. He breaks the will of his opponents, even though the average viewer and internet troll doesn't it.

    Where was the offense then? The fight was still happening. There is no void between offense and defense. Nick was showing no offense. So what do you suppose he WAS showing?
  • NogeraIsBrazilNogeraIsBrazil Posts: 199Free
    I read in another post, "If Diaz would have been more aggressive, he would have won". I read this about GSP's opponents every single fight. Fans don't understand that the reason the opponent isn't being aggressive is BECAUSE he's being defensive. With GSP you have to be defensive about EVERYTHING. All the different takedowns, all the different submissions, all the different strikes and combinations. He's not the type of fighter where you just worry about one hand and a takedown, or just striking, or just takedowns, or what have you.

    Diaz wasn't aggressive because he KNEW it would leave an opening for GSP to finish and win the fight. If he really wanted to be aggressive and win he wouldn't have been walking away from GSP with his hands down.

    I am an idiot for thinking GSP could finish the P4P GOAT Nick Diaz within 5 rounds...( sig expires march 17/2014)

    Has nothing to do with being defensive. It's more to do with them realizing quickly that being over aggressive will get them taken down much easier and held against thier will round after round.

    NO fighter is worried about leaving an opening to get finished by GSP unless you're talking about finishing takedowns and George finishing rounds by holding his opponents down after taking them down. Then yes they get more hesitant to open up with any aggressive offense because it's a direct path to being on thier back and being held down until the time runs out.

    What did he bruise from, fresh air? Diaz must have landed something which equals offence. Any offence means he wasn't on 100% defence. also if you go back and look at GSP's opponents they all landed something which means GSP has never forced a fighter into a 100% defence role.

    For his opponents to be defending, there has to be offense. GSP had dominant position nothing more. Diaz barely had a scratch on him, while GSP looked like he got mugged.
    On November 16th Hendricks became the real undisputed champion.

    Mildly brainy, but only mildly. All of these "blanket" and "lay n pray" posts are absolute nonsense. No one can show me any clip of GSP's career when he is not battling for a better position when on the ground grappling. It's because that is NOT what GSP does. Everyone knows it, people simply hate him for their own reasons.

    I know who you are so I will slow it down for you a bit.

    Diaz has tons of scar tissue from getting hit. GSP doesn't. GSP got hit some, but only in the times GSP was weak. Not when Diaz was strong.

    You'll get there. It'll take a few years more :)

    And he greases

    True. He's always watching the clock and milking it. He even did it in the Condit fight and to his credit he actually tried to fight in that fight.

    I'll assume you mean if you have an intellectual discussion with WW then he will find a way to ban you because he doesn't like a good debate. And you are right. WW is new to MMA. He might get there though. I DID notice a little step recently when the GSP vs. DIAZ fight was called. He all of a sudden became civilized and forgot he ever said Diaz would "kill" GSP. HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA
