I actually haven't ever finished an opponent in any UFC event, nor have I ever fought in the UFC. I have finished a few guys in boxing and MMA events, but I wouldn't say they were any near as tough as the fighters who get title shots in the UFC. I've tried like hell and gone to decision about a dozen times against guys who were pretty tough, but still nowhere near as tough as any of GSP's opponents.
I've recently become a fan of Diaz, because of his fallibility and raw emotion; things I can relate to. I would feel ridiculous to criticize GSP too terribly much, though.
Something to think about: it seems a lot of people who lash out against GSP's inability to finish (I know I made that one thread, but it was pure gay humor) are, typically, fans of his opponent. Why not simply give credit to the physical toughness of your favorite fighter, instead of bashing GSP. I'd like to think that Condit and Diaz would not be easy to beat up.
