I see GSP fighting Nick conservately like he fought Shields, very cautious and avoiding any groundgame. So GSP most likey will be forced to stand. On the feet is where Nick shines and GSP will come to defend his title. Diaz will come to take it...
While you might be right i still think GSP has an advantage on the feet, he is far too intelligent to just let Diaz push him ear the cage and tee of on him. Georges is going to circle away, move constantly and pick his shots, which he has a lot compared to Diaz. And when Diaz does get close on him like he did to Penn, GSP has the chance to just take him down. He doesn't have to keep him there, he can just take him down all over again.
