How come GSP and Bendo are considered better athletes than the Diaz brothers? They don't even compete in triathlons.
They're better fighters and better MMA-athletes than the diaz brothers. On paper there are superior wrestlers than GSP, however he is clearly one of the best MMA wrestlers. Its about having abilities that have been properly adapted for MMA. Nick Diaz may be able to do better in a triathlon, however he is a severely inferior fighter.
