Default Ronda Rousey Not Impressed with Georges St. Pierre's Fighting Style

I totally agree.

In six fights, UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has ended every fight in the first round. Her go-to armbar submission means her fights are predictable, but they're rarely boring.
But as for fighters she finds exciting? Don't put welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre on her list. Rousey called him boring last year, and confirmed what she said.

"I respect Georges St. Pierre as a businessman and an athlete," Rousey said to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "I don't have anything against him personally. But he's not the kind of fighter I like watching."

"He fights to win matches. He doesn't fight to defeat his opponents. I lost a lot of judo matches because of points fighters. It was extremely frustrating for me. And when I see that same style being played out in a different sport, it brings out the same reaction in me."

The last time GSP didn't have a fight go to the judges was when he won by TKO over B.J. Penn in 2009. Rousey is hardly the first person to criticized GSP's strategic style, but this is from a fellow champion who has the standing to say what she likes. It gives the criticism even more weight.

Bullshit. He couldn't bore both of us to death at the same time.

True, but that's not saying much. 2009 since his last TKO? Booooring.

She's subbed everyone in the first round as a pro and an Olympic medalist to boot. That she is an Olympic medalist is an amazing thing to fall back on. It makes her opinion more legit than 50 Cent's.. Who raps for guys intro's, doesn't fight.. She's the shit, yeah I wish she were more humble, but most people who are Olympians and still trying to achieve aren't..

You don't have to look hard to know how I feel about GSP.

With that being said, I believe he shares many similarities with Floyd Mayweather. He is a technician, and one of the most well rounded Mixed Martial Artist out there (Jon Jones being the other). The most successful of the well rounded, with 7 title defenses in The UFC. GSP is excellent at changing levels, and top control. I truly enjoyed the fight with CC as there were many moments.

But, I believe he lacks the killer instinct that Fedor, JJ, Hendo, and Anderson Silva share. GSP is who he is, and we can't fault him for that, but it's obvious why he isn't a favorite several in the community. For one, many don't appreciate his technical brilliance, and two, three, four, he runs the clock, he watches the clock, and he doesn't finish fight. Kenny Florian finishes fights, Ronda Rousey finishes fights, Houston Alexander finishes fights, and Chris Leben finishes fights. These men (and woman) are looking to finish fights at all times, let alone when the opportunity presents itself. So I believe Ronda Rousey is justified in her thoughts on GSP.

Right on, Cormier is an exceptional human being as well, I'd listen to him over 50 cent as well.

No he isn't. Anderson Silva has defended 10 times and never been defeated in the UFC. He's just as well, if not more well rounded than GSP too.

Like everyone would hype a top-notch Judo player with abysmal striking if it wasn't a woman.

Put her in a proper deep division and she'd be getting the Roger Gracie treatment.

The guy has gone through serious tragedy throughout his life, and had his dream marred by health problems.

Seems a genuine lovely guy.
