He is probably the most well-conditioned athlete in the UFC.
This is how you fight smart and extend your career.
I respect him for doing things his way and not the way some of the fans would like.
I think he is a better judge of what he needs to do and how he should do it.
I agree with you - I just wanted to see why the numpty who said he was boring considers this to be true.

Hahaha. Apparently we were talking about completely different Marks.
You meant Hominick; I was on about Bocek. (Aren't they both from Toronto anyway...?)
But yeah, this one won't be easy for Hominick. Nearly half of his losses are by submission, going against a guy who has most of his wins by sub.
Still, he's not the only one coming off a losing streak, at least.
Yes, I am smarter than you are.

Holy ****! Great grappling in that fight with those russian guys!
IVan locked up a great armbar, other dude tried to slam out of it and just managed to REALLY **** his own arm up. Looked really badly hyper extended if not broken.

Well, that sucked balls.
Great fight, Sakara almost got KOed, then Cote got caught and put down by elbows, but Sakara followed up with like 5 hammer fists to the back of the head and got DQed. Fucking lame.

Fucking DQ shouldn't have happened. Miriagliotta should've warned him the first fist that went down and given Cote five to recover.
Good fights so far. Injurious.
GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.

Holy **** at GSP v Condit!
I was sure Condit was going to win it in the 3rd after that headkick, and even a few times after that it looked like he was going to hit a sub, but GSP managed to keep control and win it. However, after seeing that I can say that GSP has absolutely NOTHING to offer Silva. It will be another two round beatdown. 1 round of clowning and 1 round of completely demolishing Canadas hopes and dreams.

I enjoyed watching the GSP vs. Condit fight quite a bit. It was highly entertaining in my opinion.
The Hendricks vs. Kampman fight wasn't bad either.
Shut the hell up and train.

What jnp said, as well as watching Rafael dos Anjos obliterate. I was happy to see GSP return to full form.
Honestly, I never really watched GSP fights before, so I don't know anything about this business about his decision wins being boring. But this fight sure wasn't.
