Exactly. Is GSP expected to do jumping spinning back kicks or something when he is ahead in a fight? He is paid to win. Certainly there is an entertainment aspect to the whole thing, but that isn't GSP's job. His job is to win. He does that. Consistently. There is no "blame" for a boring fight. It is not GSP's job to entertain you. It is his job to fight. Complaining that GSP is technical is mind bottling. It is his exquisite technique that is so entertaining. Whilst you may be more entertained by other fighters, this isn't WWE, this is professional athletics. A win is a win. Competition is competition.

Strikeforce and DREAM is only more "entertaining" because the disparity of skill levels is most of the time off the charts and so you see people doing borderline retarded things that result in explosive events during a fight. The way they run/ran their business' was clearly sub par as Strikeforce is now Zuffa owned and DREAM is on its last breaths as a company.
