But don't worry , you can keep group masturbating over your hero GSP and his "brilliant" dominating decisioning of Josh "The Muhammad Ali of MMA" Koscheck
And don't you EVER compare GSP to a stud like Cain Velasquez , they are not even at the same planet .
Cain is a relentless freight train wrestler with huge heart and killer instinct .
Cain Velasquez is a real fighter like Fedor , they are both as real as they come .
They are not entering the cage with the intention to score point and protect their pretty boy face like GSP does , they entering the cage to fight and destroy or get destroyed .
GSP displayed great skills that fight and thats something that cannot be ignored. Koscheck called him out and told him to stand (and I bet you said he would immediately take him down) and GSP stood and pounded him.
Even if GSP KO'd Kos, you'd still be all over him for being lame.
Cain Velasquez does go fight to destroy BUT UFC has for the most part fed him opponents that are prone to getting KO'ed or were KO'ed previously. Look at his fights leading up the title shot. Rothwell and Noguira recent matches were KOed by other opponents. Velasquez against Lesnar only in my opinion got the TKO because Lesnar went wild. If Lesnar had the same technical boxing that GSP had, it wouldn't have been a KO that early. Instead, the man went wild and he caught him. Plain and simple. Even then, Brock's chin has been suspect with even Mir and Couture clipping him. Also, different weight classes = different levels of strength behind those punches. More mass = more momentum.
MMA statistics also showed that approx 60% of HW bouts end with TKO where as a welterweight bouts roughly end with 35% being a TKO. That already skews your opinion of Cain Velasquez and an indication of why HW's get more TKO's. They are bigger and their punches have more 'punch'. HW's for the most part also have in general a smaller gas tank so by the time they hit later rounds, they are basically swinging for the fences. I should also add that HW's have the lowest amount of fights reaching decisions.
Your simply ignorant in the fact that NO FIGHTER goes into that cage trying to win a 'decision'. No one is dumb enough to leave matches basically their fate in the hands of other people when they have the ability to try to control their own fate. Get real for once and think a bit.
