GSP out of UFC 137-My Take
Since I was out of the office away from all sources of information, I found out about GSP being injured very late in the day. I texted several people to gauge response, one buddies response was classic.
I saw earlier. Kinda glad about that…I would like to stay awake through the main event. I’m a GSP hater.
While I myself am not a ‘GSP hater’, I understand his feelings. GSP has gone to decision 9 times in his 24 fights. That doesn’t sound like a bad ratio unless you put it into perspective. Out of 12 title fights he has gone to a decision win 6 times, submission win 2 times and T/KO 4 times. Since July 09′ he’s gone 4 straight decisions victories.
For comparison: (I’m not counting losses by decision, as I didn’t for GSP either)
- Anderson Silva has gone to decision 8 times in his 35 fights. Of his 13 title fights he has gone to decision 2 times, submission wins 2 times and T/KO 9 times.
- Matt Hughes has gone to decision 10 times in his 54 fights. Of his 11 title fights he has gone to decision 1 time, submission wins 4 times and T/KO 5 times.
- Chuck Liddell has gone to decision 7 times in his 29 fights. Of his 6 title fights he has gone to decision 0 times, submission wins 1 time by technicality and T/KO 4 times.
