Second, when he gets guys to the ground he is usually looking to ground and pound them, and also because if you look at the guys he has fought for a while now, they all have great BJJ and submission defense. Sort of equaling out GSP's ability to do anything in the way of subs. If Hardy were anyone else they would have tapped on that kimura.

I think however, if GSP wants to be known as the greatest ever he's going to need a run of finishes at some point to really solidify that.
Fantastic point...
