GSP’s win really shows how far mixed martial arts and the UFC have come in the eyes of the mainstream sports fan. To beat out arguably one of the best boxers of all time speaks volumes. This now makes four straight victories for MMA fighters. Chuck Liddell won the award in 2007, Anderson Silva in 2008, and Brock Lesnar in 2009.
St. Pierre definitely deserves the award. Winner of seven straight, he fights in the best MMA organization in the world, fighting the best fighters. While Pacquiao was a worthy opponent, when it comes to fighting, GSP can fight anywhere and is versed in more martial disciplines.
I’m going to make a call right now: Next year’s “Most Dangerous Man” will be Brock Lesnar. He’ll be the first two-time winner. That guy would give the Incredible Hulk a good fight.
