Like I said, I doubt it, but his ground game is more well equipped to deal with GSP then anyone else at welterweight (I know, bj is a world champ, but he is tiny compared to GSP).
I wasn't doubting his wrestling. I am just saying that it will be nice to get a great BJJ fighter in there to mix it up. See what the wrestlers do if they wrestle him down and he starts working his magic.
