That's a lie. Diaz has better striking, GSP has better wrestling. GSP would more than likley win by decision. No way he mauls or finsihes Diaz.

And Diaz could possible pull a sub off of his back. He did gogo Gomi.

I think Nick wins the Daley fight everywhere.

I question whether Nick's striking is actually 'better' per se. GSP is a damn good striker. Very technical, and he's oftentimes willing to mix. Don't confuse his preference for wrestling with a lack of striking ability. I think that were he to stand with Nick, it could make for a very interesting fight. I'm a huge Diaz fan, by the way. It's just that we know from what we've seen, GSP is a great striker. He's simply not showboated in a while is all. I'd actually love to see them go toe-to-toe.

Have you seen Diaz pathetic kicks?? He can't even throw a kick right.. and that after his long and successful career. He should focus on actual MMA striking instead of Boxing.

GSP would destroy him in a standup war, as would Alves, Daley and so on..

Gsp wouldn't stand up with him, so that's void, and Alves and Daley would both get pitter pattered to death then subbed.

I dont agree, GSP's stand up is solid but Nick has a style all his own and styles make fights. Ill agree that Nick wont run away with the fight if it was kept standing but nor would GSP. I think it would be close in the stand up right up to the point GSP took him down, then the real war would beguine and if anyone has a shot at sub'n GSP its Diaz or Shield.

I think GSP would prob win the fight but why would anyone not want to see it? Alves reminds me of Robbie Lawler + leg kicks and I dont see him destroying Nick.


I didn't see where Diaz or anyone in the interview said anything about co-promotion so I assume Nick is heading back to the UFC after his contract with strikefore, anyone know how many fights he has left?

Nobody destroys Nick in standing war. And he's fought some brawlers and technical strikers.

Chris Lytle couldn't do it. Gomi couldn't do it. Robbie Lawler couldn't do it. K.J. Noons (the professional boxer) couldn't do it. I think you are banking too much on just being a GSP fan if you think he's going to come in and destroy a war weatherd Nick Diaz who outstrikes everybody he faces.

He is just a Boxer guys.. Nowhere close at being a good MMA striker! I have never seen such pathetic kicks before.. Diaz couldn't even throw one right!

Alves would eat his leg's alive, if he fallows the gameplan!

Just imagine him versus Cung Le.. I don't even believe Diaz could make it out of the second round with him..
