GSP has fought the strategic way since he first lost the title to Serra. The problem is the fights not being the most exciting comes because GSP's opponents do not expect him to be so good at what he does (see Shields, Condit, and Diaz' post-fight interviews). They expect to able to stop his jabs and his takedowns or be able to sweep from the bottom position. When they get in the octagon and actually experience how good GSP is they often appear at a loss of what to do, and then proceed to fight safely in the hope that GSP will give them an opening to exploit. As we have seen, those opportunities are very rare.
