But my point is that Greg Jackson has the gameplans to beat either Diaz brother now, and he'd corner GSP. I cheer for the Diaz brothers, but GSP is perhaps the most disciplined fighter. He'll follow a gameplan while Nick just shows up to fight.

On mobile, sorry for spelling errors
Guys like Maia, Jacare, Vinny, and Gracie are on different levels than guys like Diaz. He's an awesome black belt but he's not on the level of those guys.

Maia was also able to get guys like Chael and Story to the ground, I don't think Story's defensive wrestling is that great but I'd rate it above Nick's.

Cerrone didn't fight with a game plan, that was pretty evident five seconds in when he rushed Nate.
