Why does GSP get such abuse for lack of finishes, but Bendo gets a free pass?

SistiSisti Posts: 5,312Free
Just wondering why GSP is constantly insulted for a lack of finishes and mocked and insulted...while ppl just talk about Bendo's lack of finishes in a matter-of-fact way. Kinda annoying how people always hate on GSP, but give other ppl a break for the same thing

    are you serious? GSP has been insulted so much more vehemently and mockingly than Bendo...when ppl talk about bendo's lack of finish it's just a quick fact thrown out...people have been harassing GSP about his lack of finishes so bad that u almost forget he's the best WW in history

    I think it might be that Ben's fights are usually exciting and have action in them. It makes sense people prefer that over a 25 minute cavity search of his opponents aynal glands.

    true dat...his fights have been more exciting for the most part lately. still, wouldn't you think people mention that GSP's fights are boring moreso than they mention his lack of finishes? there are plenty of fighters out there that have less finishes than GSP and that have fought far worse opponents

    That's because GSP has a crazy streak of decisions as champion and Bendo hasn't been champ as long.

    I see people **** on Bendo all over the web.

    I am an idiot for thinking GSP could finish the P4P GOAT Nick Diaz within 5 rounds

    Well first I like to see both fight but I am a bigger can of Bendo

    His gets blame aswell but not as much as GSP and he should not

    His fights are more entertaining for the most part

    He try's to finish harder then GSP

    The last fight I felt GSP tried to end was the Hardy fight (ill give him a pass in the Alvez fight...no one can try hard for the finish with a torn groin)

    He has a smaller streak as champ then GSP who has few years head start

    for some reason this response makes the most sense. bendo's fights are more entertaining, and he does go for the finish more. still i'd like to see more fairness, and people realizing that there are a lot of fighters in the UFC that fight just as safe or safer than GSP. not like he invented the idea of utilizing ur best skill to win a match. in gsp's case it's wrestling, but for strikers their best chance is a KO and that's why they get more of them. if GSP's strength was striking, he would do that to get an advantage and there'd be way more KO's

    Bendo's fights are way more exciting, intense, and action packed as opposed to GSPs Kindergarten Nap Time sponsored by some random energy drink, contradicting huh?

    On a serious note however, I think a lot of it has to do with GSPs "cowardly" approach so to speak. He is very cautious about everything he does in the octagon and about which fights he takes. Whereas Bendo, he acts like a hoodrat from Compton when he fights, he doesn't give a ****. What's that? A sub attempt? Let me do the splits while defending the sub and land some punches.

    Seriously, who does that?

    People just don't care as much about Bendo.. IMO his fights are more boring than GSP's they just have less hype. I just hope he gets beat up by TJ. Also Bendo is soooooo lucky with his decision wins, even back in WEC he robbed Cerrone big time.

    Bendo's fights are a lot more exciting.

    Not finishing isn't the only reason GSP get's critisized.
    Cheating
    Greasing
    Not making weight.

    Those are just a few others.

    Bendo is a noob compared to GSP in boring fights

    Bendo has only been doing it for a small amount of time, he will get to GSP's level eventually

    Well the edgar/Melendez dec. were close agree... but Miller for an example is a beast and Bendo dominated him like never seen b4, just like Guida and Bocek(Cerrone)! Before his loss to showtime, Bendo finished 2 high level guys... Cerrone and Varner and he finished shane roller and Njokuani, so GSP isn't even close to Bendo's finishing ability!!!

    Cuz I'm not baised or a hater that's why it makes sence lol

    And to me thier is nothing wrong with fighting safe...that's one half of the point of striking "hit without getting hit" many famous strikers have said this with Ernesto Hoost being one of them and everyone know knows him loves him

    To me a lot of guys fight safe...if Thiago Alves fought Maia and just struck with Maia then that would be fighting safe aswell...people have no idea what fighting safe really is...it's being your plan without the risk of doing the other guys plan

    Many fighter do this...and guess what, it's the best fighter that do this

    Let me start off by saying that I don't like either fighter. However, there is a big difference between the two as it pertains to their inability to finish. Bendo doesn't finish because he has competitive fights and seems to lack the skills to seal the deal even though he tries. In contrast, GSP is preoccupied with gaining and maintaining position. In other words, he point fights. Fighters that would be a fair comparison to GSP would be Fitch, Shields, Edgar, Sylvia, and Cruz.

    Compared to GSP nobody really cares about Bendo. That's why

    Same reason nobody cares that Chael lays on everybody and is boring to watch. They only care about his mouth.

    Ha! He gets nearly as much criticism as George but he has a few things going for him that George doesn't.

    Benson actually does try to finish when he can. He won't pass up good positions or a striking oppurtunity to play if safe.
    Benson doesn't miss weight or grease.
    Benson isn't fake. He's pretty open and honest about who he is and doesn't fear being asked question about his fighting or who he is as a person.
