Darryl:
I am sure the increased fight schedule doesn't help as well. Add in several Versus shows a year now as well.

Why should he? You're blaming GSP for being dominant. It's not his fault he's THAT GOOD....Time for others to step their games up to match him. It's like telling Orr, or Gretzky to retire because they were dominant...it's not that simple because GSP isn't a huge WW and your frame will only allow so much weight to go on it without severely compromising speed because of mass. Ask any hockey player. Of course he could just compete in MW at a lower weight but then again, the lack of weight hurts power and grappling abilities.
Having said that, I think he'll move up after dominating the next fight.

GSP has to finish Diaz tho or alot of people are gonna start rooting against him.  Im even getting a little annoyed with his performances lately cause it always seems to be the same excuse. Sorry, tried my best, was fighting an injury, blah blah blah.  Finish him George.

Yeah it's GSP's fault Shields poked him in the eye and virtually blinded him for 3 rounds. Guys like you kill me. You may want to see KO/stoppages but the skill level of a GSP is off the charts and it's so impressive how bad he makes fighters like Sheilds, Kos, Alves, Penn, and Fitch look. Sure I'd like to see him put someone away but the pure brilliance of the game plan and execution is a thing of beauty. He never even lost a round for 7 fights until the Sheilds fight, and IMO he didn't lose one then either.
Heard an interview with Royce Gracie and he said he loves the way a guy like GSP fight...Come in with a game plan, and execute it to perfection.

Well it's kind of like boxing...where certain people (Klitschko's and Valuev) refused to face top end talent and only fought (for a while anyways...haven't followed boxing in a long time) the forced title defences...it's frustrating for fans of boxing.

Same with GSP. Nobody challenges him. It's kind of like he just goes out there because he has to. It's different because it isn't his fault because there's absolutely NO challenge for him in his weight class...but just like it was boring as hell to watch a Klitschko beat up a guy who had no business being in the ring with him...it's just as frustrating watching GSP sleep through a match and absolutely  mangle whoever it is he's facing.

TheMightyOdin:
I think Diaz is a little underrated. Good striker, ground game and conditioning. 

I don't think he beats GSP but I think it's not going to be a one sided fight either.
