To be honest i saw some pretty good boxing skills in diego last time he fought and now he's trading hands with the boxing champ.

After i thought about there striking i thought diego would have a slight edge in the boxing, but his kickboxing is very far behind gsp and gsp has speed and accurancy with kicks.So thats why i think gsp an edge against diego striking.

diego would be on his back for the first two rounds eating gnp and it would be a hopeless beating, then gsp would finish him at some point.

Its gsp's choice where the fight goes.

he can either put diego on his backand elbows his face in, then stick tot hat an eventually get a stoppage.

Or he can mess around striking with diego too see what happens and if he does i think he has more of a chance to ko diego than diego has to ko him and he can put diego on his back w/e he wants.

gsp's wrestling and gnp would be his strength here.

You make good points and I'm not counting GSP out I just have a really strong gut feeling Diego is going to win. My gut never lies. My gut told me BJ was going to lose to Hughes, but being such a huge fan I told myself he would win, but I always had a feeling in the back of my head I would be wrong, and sure enough. Same with the Franklin/Silva fight. I wanted Rich to win so bad but something told me he was going to lose and he did.

When Diego and GSP fight all my points are going to Diego cuz he will probably be a huge underdog and I am just sure he is going to win for some reason.

I think baroni if he fought franklin at lhw would get the ko.


silva beats marquart- silva has as good of a ground game as nate does, much betterstriker, he only lacks wrestling.

But marquart will not be able to hold silva down if he gets it to the grounds nor will he be doing anything but dodging subs.


silva will catch nate in a 5 round fight. nate just wont be able to hang with silva's dangerous strikes and muay thai. At some point silva will bring nate down.

You overrate baroni. What has he done to think that he could KO franklin? His only decent ko wins in recent history are a 1 punch over ryo chonon (the most decent win of his career) and a tko over Minowa witch he avenged. Kondo is completly washed up now so beating him now really isnt anything. Baroni is a short guy at 5'9 to rich franklins 6'1, and franklin is no slouch at striking. Baroni also has NO exp fighting at 205 while franklin does. I mean any guy has a punchers chance, but to say he would definately ko franklin is ignorant.

I don't care what anyone says, GSP's standup is not the best there is. He is accurate, and quick, but he lacks power. Diego's standup is just as good as GSP's, maybe a little better considering Diego has more power behind his shots because of his stance and style.

I think the ground portion will be about equal if it goes to the ground at all. I think GSP can and will take Diego down as many times as Diego takes GSP down and I don't see either of them doing enough damage to each other to end the fight, unless it is late in the fight and one of them is already weak or injured.

I think Diego wins this by keeping it on his feet. His face is basically made of leather. In the Karo fight, Karo was hitting him with bombs, knocking his head back and making it double bounce, but he never broke his skin. I think both GSP and Diego are the most well rounded fighters in the division. I don't think GSP is the end all be all of MMA. He is very good, but I don't think he's as good as people think he is. He is still young, just like Diego, but Diego trains much harder from what I hear. Diego is never out of training for groin injuries or this or that, he trains constantly. Diego has more experience than GSP too, not against better opponents, he just has been in the game longer than GSP has. Watching GSP work his way up to the title made me realize how much motivation actually plays a factor in the fighters performance. I think GSP was so motivated and excited that he just outclassed Hughes. But Diego seems to be much more motivated than GSP ever was. GSP was very anxious and motivated, because you know it took so long for him to finally get a rematch with Hughes and all that. But Diego has been waiting even longer. He's about to get his 20th straight win, he's never lost EVER, he's beaten everyone the UFC has thrown at him and in devastating and convincing fashion, he blew through 3 people on the show to win it, and he still hasn't gotten a title shot yet. I think if Diego uses his motivation the same way GSP did, Diego will outclass GSP when they fight.

Anyone who thinks Diego sucks just because he was chosen to be on the show is retarded. Being on the show just gives him an advantage over GSP, in that he had all that time to do nothing but step up his game, and he prolly still trains like that to this day. GSP didn't have that luxury, and just because GSP wasn't on the show doesn't make him a better fighter. Diego is just as human as GSP is.
That is some funny @ss Sh!t, Diego got better stand up Why cuz he caught Joe "the measuring stick " Riggs what ever man Gsp would sprawl and brawl all over diego and when no one was expecting it Gsp Would scoop him up and put some Ground and pound on him Remeber what I said Write it down take a picture, This is prophetic believe dat

its not ignorant


baroni is a savage knockout puncher, far more dangerous kncokout puncher than franklin has ever fought.


and rich would box with phil.franklin is the kind of guy that wares you down with strikes gradually,phil is the kinda guy that just flat out puts you away immediately.

Phil's punching power is miles above franklin, his hand speed also miles above franklin, his explosiveness miles above.

franklin would strike with him and get ko'd.he would only need to test the boxing scene for a short while for phil to get him good.

unless franklin just right off the bat start shooting......


but he's said he's not scared to bang with anyone so he would bang.



like i said id give this to phil if the fight was at lhw, if it was at mw i woudlent bet on it.

baroni beat his ass on the feet and in the first fight larry landless stopped the fight not tanner, and landless stepped in to check a cut on the cerge of baroni getting a ko. tanner was ****ed and regained allot of composure


baroni is a far more dangeorus striker than franklin are you kidding me. Baroni hurt tanner so much more on the feet the amount of tme he had with tanner in there fights then rich with the same amount of time standing with tanner.

Baroni is just a flat out dangerous striker thats capable of putting away anyone in his division given the chance to strike due to his ko power, speed and explosiveness.
