UFC 100: Georges St-Pierre takes down Thiago Alves again and again and again

Georges St-Pierre is the great neutralizer of MMA. He can do anything he wants to do in the Octagon, but more importantly, he can make other fighters not do things.

GSP's supreme takedown skills kept Thiago Alves at bay with his standup at UFC 100, and St-Pierre successfully defended his welterweight championship at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Two judges scored the fight, 50-45, and the third judge scored it 50-44 as St-Pierre won the unanimous decision.

GSP (19-2) controlled the first round, scoring three takedowns of Alves (22-5). He did the same in the second round, only this time, GSP was more aggressive with the ground and pound. He landed punches and elbows that opened up Alves' nose and right eye.

In the third round, St-Pierre once again dominated Alves. For good measure, he landed a right hand that dropped Alves to the floor with about 45 seconds left.

In the fourth round, Alves managed to get GSP on his back for about 1 minute and 15 seconds and landed a few punches. But once back on his feet, GSP caught an Alves leg kick, punched him in the face and took him down again.

In the fifth round, well, by now you know the deal. GSP took down Alves. Then, GSP took down Alves.

All that, and GSP claims he injured his groin in the third round.

It's GSP's world, people. The rest of us just live in it, and that's only because he's a nice guy.

How much longer until we get to see GSP vs. Anderson Silva?

Joe Rogan asked the question in the post-fight interview. "When I fight, I do it for a challenge," GSP said. What better challenge than the top two pound-for-pound fighters in the world?

The scene inside Radio City: They're in love with GSP here in NYC. Not like in Montreal, of course. The crowd sat patiently, almost mesmerized, as they watched GSP systematically pick apart Alves.

Nice dude thanks for the update....didnt catch it

Bravo !!! Georges

Thanks for the update didn't get the chance to watch the fight...im sooo happy he won!!!

thiago alves is still better

thiago alves is still better

In what way is Thiago better? Were we even watching the same fight? GSP out wrestled him, out punched him, and after whole five rounds Thiago didn't even manage to touch GSP's face. I thought this match up was going to be tight but it was a complete GSP domination. Bring on a catch weight fight with Anderson Silva, that'd be a fight!!!

Wow it tought tiago was gonna give gsp a war but this turned out to be a bust.Now nobody in the welterweight can even match up against him.Matt hughes dominant? if your your talkin about dominant your tlkin about gsp.
As for the anderson silva fight lets let forest griffin show us a battle and then start gsp with some easier middle weight opponents like michal bisping.Then we can know if gsp is ready for the monster called anderson silva.

..... BRAVO ! GSP..... nous sommes très fier de toi continu à être aussi bon gentlement surtout champion bravo encore et encore !

I love GSP , dude is a monster .. I thought Thiago Alves would put up a better fight, but I mean lets be serious, he couldn't .. GSP is dominant in all aspects, one of the greatest champions and fighters ever !

Hey Jeeeeee

Alves is still better..??? Better at what... getting the crap beat out of him by a superior athlete... yeah, thats it.

Wow, Thiago Alves was really lame. Looked intimidated...

I only read one interview about GSP, but when I read about how this guy trains and his background I thought this guy has to be a great fucking fighter. I have seen some of his fights, so when all of this hype about Tiago Alves started, I was really doubtful this guy was gonna pose a challenge. They were talking about how buff he is but if you look up some info on GSP that dudes actuall a monster in terms of strength. Not to mention that the guy has great agility. You can't pit just strength up against, agility, skill, and power.

What else is there to say about the amazing G.S.P? The fight was great!! So proud and happy to be a fan of him! Not only went five rounds woopin ass, but with a messed up elbow from previous injury and a messed up groin injured in the 3rd round. He is by far the greatest! GSP GSP GSP!!!!

I really thought Alves would have done a lot better than he did. However
I've also got to say that I'm not all that suprised by the outcome of this one.
GSP is not only an incredible fighter and athlete; but he's one of the hardest
workers in the sport. You never hear GSP talk a load of shit. Not
even after his most dominating performances. He just goes out and
does his job. He seems to understand the importance of a great work
ethic as well as humility. (even though he has less reason to be humble
than most other fighters in the sport). Thats why I respect the man as THE MAN!!!

Sorry. We are made to persist. That's how we find out who we are. Help me! I find sites on the topic: Case backhoe sevice dealers in kansas. I found only this - maryland car pawn lender. For a car, car loan, bad credit car loan. As a finance sector employee, you work in one of the most dynamic sectors of the australian economy. With best wishes :eek:, Kadin from Republic.
