AND GUESS WHAT? St-Pierre vs Shields was the most boring fight on the whole card (including the preliminaries). We left in the middle of the 4th round because we knew that GSP wasn't going to get the finish and we didn't want to get stuck in traffic. We ended up right and GSP apologized yet again for not being able to deliver a finish.

GSP is top 5 P4P in the world no doubt, but there are tons of fighters I'd rather see fight. From the obvious names like Jon Jones, Anderson Silva, Frankie Edgar to the less known names like Diego Brandao, Donald Cerrone and Glover Texeira.
And u think GSP goes into a fight telling himself I won't KO/TKO him ill just throw a few punches and go for the boring win ? First of all GSP was never known to be a finisher he's a well rounded fighter and if I've seen he's latest fights u would know he's been trying to finish all of them beside the Shield one,that fight was boring and ill give u that but the rest were good fights.Did u tell urself the same thing wen u would go see the Habs under Martin winning 1-0 games ?
