    Yeah but GSP sukcs tho, lol.. because he only wins by decision, and even a child could do dat..



    No but seriously how often do you hear people saying "I don't see GSP knocking anyone out"? You never ever ever ever hear anyone say that. You hear people say "GSP never goes for the finish anymore", but that is not what people have said about the Flyweight division as a whole.

    I guess, but my point still stands, GSPs finishing is equal or better, AND he isn't fighting women.

    GSP IS one of the p4p best MMA fighters ever also.

    GSP is actually one of the sole reasons why I disagree with the "Oh so and so only wins by decision, he's not even that good" argument. A win is a win, and until someone finds a way to actually beat such a guy, it doesn't matter how much balls they seem to have in the octagon. Even if GSP won all of his fights via decision, it wouldn't change the fact that he's the best Welterweight.

    If you are in a street fight and the guy you are fighting doesn't break your arm or knock you out or kill you, they just whip your ass for the solid duration of the engagement and neutralize every single offensive attempt you bring to the table, they still won, and you still don't exactly have bragging rights, you may just be conscious enough to see them walk away with your wallet. I don't see how people seem to resist this logic with all their might.

    That said, the fact still remains, saying Flyweights don't finish fights is a plain fallacy.
