Yeah, he was getting whooped, and if it wasn't stopped then it would have been worse.

Jeremy Jackson blasted him and won very early in the fight....Nick didn't tap ( like GSP did)

And? Nick still got his ass beat.

change his style?...you mean work on double leg and control position so he doesn't get hit?

I'm talking about changing things up if what you're doing isn't working.

serial?...Lawler,Neer,Tibau,Cybog,Daley,Gomi....

I said good opponents. Really, Cyborg? You serial? Lawler was fairly early in his career and that was a long time ago. Neer is quite a stretch, and again, long ago. Tibau is another stretch and yet once again, long ago. Daley is another stretch, but at least fairly recent. You're pretty much just naming above average fighters who aren't all that good outside of Lawler and Gomi, but unfortunately, the Gomi win doesn't even count on his record. So basically, we're left with Lawler from 2004...

it's been 5 years since GSP finished someone!@

It's only been 4 years, and are we conveniently forgetting that GSP has been out for 2 years with an injury? And, who cares if they're finishes or not? He screwed up the armbar a little bit against Hardy, but many people would have tapped to that. He broke Kos' orbital and had him out for almost a year. He fought Shields with 1 eye for half the fight. Besides, those guys are really, really tough to finish.
