Amazing. Heart of a champion.

Based on timing alone, you would have never guessed that GSP was the fighter coming off a long layoff.

Dharmaboy Says, in 11-19-2012 at 13:08:02 from    

He was pretty quick for ring rust. but shows you how much that loss to Sera forever changed him when it came to his dedication to the sport.

GSPs management of space, distance is amazing.

GSP was sharp, Condit looked slow and hesitant. The gameplan was off for Condit…why so many leg kicks, throw high kicks so that GSP would have to block with hands protecting Condit from the takedown.

GSP is a great champion, heart of lion!

The head kick by Condit is the best one I’ve seen in the UFC in a long time. Props to the guy

Gsp still fought like a girl, leave for 18 months, come back and still fights like a chick. Gsp lucky he didn’t fight Diaz cause he wouldn’t want to take him to the floor. He’s the sorriest champion I ever seen. How does it how he has heart in this fight? Because he kept taking him down? This isn’t wrestling period

GSP = Takedowns

That’s it.

Stop sucking his balls – GSP doesn’t finish fights.

Meat Drapes – yes, but then there’s Anderson Silva who is on a different level…

whoever made that first gif is an idiot…cuts off the best moment of the fight…

gsp is a great fighter, but bob is right, he doesnt finish…thats why anderson and others rank higher than him…he even admits it

Tempted Says, in 11-19-2012 at 17:53:43 from    

What’s sad is that there is only one “highlight” shot over 25 minutes of a “champion vs champion” fight.

Crocography Says, in 11-19-2012 at 17:56:05 from    

He may not finish the guys in the deepest pool of MMA, but he sure does dominate them. They get thoroughly beaten and then there next fights don’t seem to be that good. Watch for Condit’s next fight.

bob: Stop sucking his balls – GSP doesn’t finish fights.

me: He wins them.

@fightdontbefake – He’s not right. Read again. I’ll discuss it with you and not him.

Can anyone tell me why in the hell Dana wants to match GSP with Silva when there are still good fights to be made in both weight classes???? Personally I’d rather watch GSP vs Hendricks and Silva vs Weidman than Silva vs GSP.

ramrod Says, in 11-19-2012 at 19:27:16 from    

dammn i dont know guys what do you think i think that condit gave GSP too much respect too much.. by the time he wanted to warm up he was too tired from bieng dry humped.. and could not fiinsh him from the kick ..

samuraitato Says, in 11-19-2012 at 23:26:38 from    

condit…lucky kick..that was it…not impress..diaz vs gsp makes sense…

Escapee Says, in 11-19-2012 at 23:34:13 from    

GSP dominated this fight for 24 min. DOMINATED! Some of you don’t seem to know what the hell that means. Condit had a great 30 sec or so and he’s the next best in the division. He doesn’t finish fights? Big deal. He DOMINATES! NEXT!!

greengiant Says, in 11-20-2012 at 02:48:26 from    

GSP is more like a randy couture type fighter and i like it.He does not have the KO ability or fight ending shock factor but don’t be stupid he is very very good.If all gsp has is takedowns and dry humping then tell me why he landed so many elbows and punches?You guys are haters period and nothing will change that because you see in tunnel vision.Just like randy couture he is a master at shutting peoples games down,that is his skill.

I just posted this comment in the Hendricks gif, but I think it responds pretty clearly to your question:

I think I’ve decided that I would actually be much more interested in the Silva vs. GSP superfight than I would in Silva vs. Jones. GSP is stylistically well primed for the fight, since he has possibly the most explosive takedowns of anyone in MMA with excellent top-control n guard-passing skills, which are all things that Silva has presented a weakness with in the past. GSP is also a more disciplined fighter than Chael Sonnen n seems much less likely to be caught by Silva’s triangle chokes, etc. He should look for a better way to open a closed guard than using the can-opener though, because the extra length n leverage that Silva will undoubtedly have would probably be tougher to shrug off than Carlos Condit’s. GSP is excellent at closing the distance with a takedown move, which means that he might be able to avoid clinch situations where Silva could KO him with devastating knees. The main thing he would need to avoid would be standing n trading with him. This little Russian roulette style game that Silva likes to play where he drops his hands n just waits for punches to counter is a game that GSP would almost certainly lose (like either the Griffin or Bonner fights). All in all, I like this match-up a lot.

Now, don’t get me wrong. If Silva fought Jonny Bones, I would be going bananas just like all of you, but I also consider it a fight that Silva would be very unlikely to win. Silva’s knees from in the clinch – easily his most devastating strike – would be near impossible to pull off against Bones, since he is both too tall n also among the very best Greco Roman wrestlers in the UFC. Silva’s punch n kick accuracy is another of his main strengths n likely the best chance he would have for winning, because since he greatly prefers to counterstrike than attack preemptively, he might be able to slip a punch or two, throw a couple strikes n return to the outside. That is not at all a safe bet, however, because Jones’ height n reach advantage mean that staying on the outside would leave him open to many more strikes than he would be able to return. He would have a punchers chance if he could stop it from going to the ground, but what seems most likely – not certain, but very likely – is that Bones would force a clinch situation, ragdoll him to the ground n then batter him with punches n elbows from guard, half-guard, and/or side-control.

I may still believe that Anderson Silva is the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world, but that doesn’t mean he is invincible n the (mostly unspoken (at least in English)) reasons that he has for hesitating to fight Bones are legit. GSP vs. Silva, however, might be a truly awesome match-up.

I’m really interested to hear other people’s intelligible responses to the parts that extend beyond this conversations scope as well…

facefrack Says, in 11-20-2012 at 04:05:03 from    

I didn’t make it clear in what I just posted, but I still think Silva would win. I bet GSP would still bring out his best though.

fightdontbefake Says, in 11-20-2012 at 05:35:14 from    

phil, it is my opinion…not to mention, go watch what gsp says at the post fight conference, he said hes not as good as jones, silva, or even rampage, hes very good at what he does (and that isnt finish people), sure he wins, but id rather see finishing fights…like a champ should, i dont consider him a top shelf champion for it

Come on Dana Says, in 11-20-2012 at 07:57:52 from    

Silva vs Jones
GSP vs Diaz

This all only makes sense. Jones and Silva wiped out their divisions in devastating fashion. Georges “whats the rush?” St. pierre hugs his opponents for 25 mins. This is ridiculous now although major props for shrugging the ring rust, adrenaline dump and of course overcoming a brutal injury but COME ONE MAN! Its always a hugfest.

Gsp v Silva just dont add up plus Diaz and Georges still have unfinished business to take care of. F*** weidmann, he is no where near qualified or talented to fight anderson.

Lets see fights that Anderson actually has competition in, not ones he knows hell win.

Somewhat pains me to say it but not being able to finish a fight should be related to P4P rankings. BJ Penn is in some ways a better P4P fighter than GSP. Per size, BJ packs more punch.

Anderson Silva is a very big MW fighter. Not the biggest, but with an ideal frame for MW (or even LHW). GSP has an ideal frame for WW or LW, not realistically MW. Silva also packs incredible punch (HW punching power).

GSP hits very hard, but he doesn’t take risks in the way he throws strikes.

Being disciplined is a very important element of fighting. Timing and mental preparedness are also huge components.

GSP lacks creativity. He also has very little swagger during a fight.

GSP is the greatest champion ever in the second most competitive weight division, and a weight division with a previously record setting champion and hall of famer (Hughes).

In my view the hardest/deepest UFC divisions by ranking (relative to number of top 20 worldwide fighters in the division) are:

1. LW
2. WW
3. LHW
4. MW
5. HW
6. FW
7. BW
8. FW

Now my P4P rankings:
1. Anderson
2. Jon Jones
3. GSP
4. Jose Aldo
5. Junior Dos Santos
6. Benson Henderson
7. Frankie Edgar
8. Rashad Evans
9. Nick Diaz
10. Nate Diaz

Notables: Weidman, Cormier, Korean Zombie, Anthony Pettis

GSP is nothing like Couture. Randy does damage on the ground. GSP does not EVER try to posture up and do damage, he just hugs and humps. I’d feel gay after 5 rounds with GSP.

Funny Keyboard warriors and fighter wanna be.
Most of them no squat about fighting except watching it.

Blah blah blah….as usual…couch experts.

I myself take half of you out without a sweat, and most of you still act like they are the belly bottom of the world.

Too hilarious.
