GSP- JUSTIFIED CRITICISM OR JUST PLAIN HATE


I'll start this off by saying that I am a gsp fan.  I'm writing this post cuz I finally got a buddy to admit that he just hates gsp and there is nothing that could happen that will change his mind. This is the guy that talks about gsp being scared to stand, having a glass jaw and being a overall boring wrestler.  Now the whole glass jaw thing is silly to me because he got rocked once with a punch behind the ear. I won't call it a lucky punch but shite happens.  I chalk this statement up to just plain hate.  Now the being scared to stand thing is a better argument.  Some will say he doesn't stand more because his wresting is so good(perhaps) Others will say he is just scared to get KTFO again(maybe) I think it's a little of both.  He probably was gun shy after the serra fight and he just happens to have world class wrestling to fall back on.  This leads us to the complaint I hear the most. All gsp does now is lay n pray.  First you have to understang that gsp is to wrestling what anderson silva is to striking.  Everyone loves a KO so there is no complaints in a silva fight when he trys to keep it standing the whole fight. But gsp is as dominant on the ground as silva is on the feet. You don't have to like his style, but don't you at least have to respect it?  Now I'm not saying that gsp doesn't deserve criticism,he does. Champions have to be held to a high standard.  I'm just curious how many people how there are just hatin' and how many have legitimate gripes.
