just as an fyi, GSP in an interview with yahoo said he walks only at 188. If that is so (right from the horses mouth) the size differential will be very large

Anyone else felt like Guida did NOTHING to diserve that decision win?
I personally found it RIDICULOUS. He did NOTHING the entire fight. I don't think he ever landed a punch. All he did was hold him, hold him some more, then hold him more. He took NO advantage of any positions, he never tried to progress in the fight, all he did was hug Diaz, who on the other hand was just landing punches, doing transitions, taking him down, sweeping, etc.
Guida controlled the ring but he did nothing besides that. Nothing at all.

I wasn't too sure about that one either, seemed to me like it was going to be an "easy" one after the fight.
But I just think that UFC should be awarding victories to people who are doing the most, not for the ones who are preventing their opponents from doing anything while not doing any damage themselves. That's what I found ridiculous. The better man didn't win, the most aggresive didn't win, the guy who won was the one who tried to not let an actual fight happen. Horrible IMHO.

I totally agree and would add I've never seen GSP more focused and determined. He is intellingent, trains with the best.... and probably outworks, outsmarts and out-gameplans almost everyone out there. As of now he is 100% determined to be the best. His determination is very inspiring & motivating. I haven't been this motivated since the 1st Rocky movies came out watching Sylvester running and drinking those raw eggs. Just thinking of GSP training gives me goosebumps.
P.S. I am not a GSP nuthugger! Just calling it the way I see it.
Loved Machida's mastery the best!

Also, I was seriously impressed with John "Bones" Jones! That kid's (hopefully) gonna be a force to reckon with. That spinning elbow was sick!

There's a bunch of my friends that are quite happy about the GSP win; I only caught snippits of it but most guys around here were watching it.

That karo decision was garbage i cant stand that cocky crybaby prick.
Jones was completely molesting Bonner in the first round, like real bad rapage imo. He gassed early tho, Bonner shouldnt be in the UFC.
Its funny how BJ jumps from weight classes to fight the best but when we talk about GSP jumping weight class its more of a cautious deal where we have to work him into the class....thats not pound for pound. Im sure A. Silva would jump to a weight class to fight the best if given the chance....so why not GSP?
Im glad Diaz lost, he was landing punches if you want to call them that. The kid couldnt hurt my grandma come on those were like open handed sparring strikes.

Fight pretty much went as expected. However, GSP seemed very apprehensive to stand in the first round. BJ showed real good take down defense on that round too. However, GSP just took over came second round and really got aggressive. BJ does not have the stamina at that weight, and he clearly stopped fighting and just started defending at some point in the fight after getting tired.

He didn't quit. Dr looked at him and his corner stopped it. Not saying he didn't get beat I gotta give it to GSP he is a hell of a fighter but did you see all those hits GSP was landing right on BJ's head and BJ still didn't tap??? that was a hell of a beating. GSP was just too Big and thats not a knock on GSP. Now I can see why my coach want's to cut down more.

It did not appear as if the Doctor mandated the fight be stopped, as his brother ultimately made the call it seems.
02-02-2009, 01:56 PM
Oh yeah i agree corner made the call but not BJ himself even when he was getting wailed on HARD he didn't tap. I mean GSP had him in a type of cruifix at one point and was just landing clean shots to his head and he kept going. I think GSP is just an animal at Welterweight he deserved it

I think they were referring to his will to fight. Like I said, he stopped attacking at some point. I would imagine that having his guard not only nullified but passed with ease was probably the most frustrating experience for BJ.
