I disagree, his first Koschek fight wasn't great right after the loss, but after that he finished both Hughes and Serra in devastating fasion, and handed Fitch arguably the worst 5 round beating I'v ever seen a guy survive. Mysteriously after that it seems his killer instinct disappeared, but I think it was too long after his loss to blame his conservativeness on that. It's a shame really, newer UFC fans missed out on the old destroyer GSP and are stuck with this jabbing takedown machine we see today. I'm hoping that this long layoff has somehow changed his mindset a bit, but it could easily just make him even more conservative.
