Frankly, I've a hard time faulting GSP for not being able to KO or sub Diaz. He's been legitimately stopped ONCE and that was a decade ago, before Diaz achieved virtual immortality through copious amounts of ganja.
GSP haters remind me a bit of Jones or Silva haters. Can't hate them for their outstanding fight records so you've gotta hate them for being "arrogant" or "cocky" or "boring" instead, never mind the fact that they make top-level opponents look like day 1 white belts.
True greatness is a rare thing. Just enjoy it while it lasts. Of course, GSP is bound to lose sooner or later, at which point he will have always been overrated.

He's not being faulted for not stopping him, he's criticized for not trying to.
And it's not about the average dickhead MMA fan bitching on the champs, who cares about them.
it's just frustrating to see GSP could do more and he doesn't.
Silva or Jones wouldn't do that. Fedor never did. I mean that's what GSP is being compared to, that's his skill level.
My opinion anyway...

I still don't think GSP should throw caution to the wind, especially at this stage of his career. But he shouldn't be surprised if he is viewed as a boring fighter in comparison to some of the other greats, either.

Dude, comparing a fight to the infamous Watch Kalib Run fight is like comparing a person to... I don't wanna say Hitler but you get my point.
You need a better benchmark.
