cannot be an excuse, he won 50 - 45 and is happy with his performance

but I guess that explains why he acted as he did during the weigh ins and pressers

Hopefully it explains his performance as well, a lot of fans were unimpressed

    Hopefully that is the reason why he looked so horrible in the last half of the fight.

    round 3 does not equal "Diaz should have defeated grease"

    sure he landed one or two good shots but look what happened to him in the rest of the round, let alone the rest of the fight. i have no interest in a rematch and neither does the ufc. but in diaz's mind, 99 times out of 100, he could have would have should have won, and that was simply just that 1 time he didnt.

    though it is rather sad seeing gsp apologizing after every one of his fights. surely he wants to be a finisher. but he simply just isnt and never will be.

    Would explain why he noticably slowed down after the 2nd round. He ended up going from complete domination to merely winning.
    ^ I agree.

    Agree he was so dominant in those first two rounds, clearly he wasn't well. Shields most likely spiked his drink and that's why he wanted to get back in so bad to top up the dose.

    wtf bro

    all i said is that he won round 3

    no he didnt. all 3 judges scored it 50-45. get over it.
    and all Diaz did in the 3rd is land a couple good punches by the end of the round. That after being owned the rest of the round doesn't give you a round. I guess that's why the judges saw it 50-45 too.

    LoL **** Nick.

    Johny is going to show how its done.

    Big Rigg, 1 punch ko.

    Hendricks is actually a worthy contender. I can't wait to see him flatline GSP.

    We may as well start speculating who Johny's first title defense will be.

    Ellenberger? MacDonald? Maia?

    GSP always makes excuses.

    I loved his excuses after the Serra and Hughes losses:

    "I was starstruck"

    "I underestimated him"

    After Johny kills him what will his excuse be?

    His beard distracted me?

    No his performance was good considering he fought pretty much exactly like most figured and even better considering the 4/5 rounds where he was too tired to get TD's.
    The REAL problem is his game,he needs far too much more added to it,he's basically still at entry level skills.
    I have seen guys that shouldn't be using skill moves use them,yet i NEVER seen GSP use any,so there lies a huge problem.

    Example Brock Lesnar who had been goofing off in the WWE circus,managed an Arm Triangle choke on Carwin to finish the fight.GSp has actually had the arm triangle choke already in his grasp maybe a HUNDRED times so far and not once did he think to use it.It really dumb founds me how he could have trained any wrestling and doesn't know that move.

    I understand his fear of taking the back,it is because he gets himself so tired delivering TD's thjat he is afraid if he get's reversed,he would be done with no energy to get out of it.He al;so NEVER not once,has he used grape vines,we see TONS of fighters use them to control fighters,yet GSP the guy who has trained every aspect for several years,doesn't seem to understand it.

    Leg kicks???His kicks are pathetic,they seem more like a waste of time than anything.He doesn't even try to put any snap into them.If he learned to deliver front knee kicks and take out the lead leg of strikers,he would be a ton better off.

    HJes has absolutely ZERO counter striking game.How could he spend time with a supposed boxing trainer legend and not learn how to counter?I mean geesh JDS has crap boxing skills,but what he does do is counter very well.Instead GSP likes to use his quickness and speed to run.Reason he NEEDS a counter game is for a guy like Hendrick's.What if he can't get TD's or is too tired to run ,he is going to need to counter those wild haymakers.He already has the skill,he uses it to get TD's,he ducks under those wild swings,instead of a TD,just counter with an uppercut or any kind of combo or strike.

    Two things,either his camp is crap,over rated,or he is stubborn and won't adapt,perhaps a little of both.
    Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.

    well the fact he went on to dominant Hughes twice and then lay a beat down on Serra kinda back's up what he said :)

    Serra is a Featherweight ffs.

    GSP only won the second Hughes fight because he kicked him in the balls three times.

    He must have been sick because he had so many opportunities to try something or inflict damage and he didn't do it, he just wanted the fight to be over and retain the belt. These statements just muddy the waters because now we'll never know if GSP could have done more if he was 100%.
