You're insane if you think Diaz is going to walk through George. What's he going to do when Gsp wont gas or let him pepper his stomach with body shots? He's going to have to sub Gsp off his back if he wants to win as his tdd is horrible.
So good luck with that.

GSP has a lot more diverse striking than Diaz. Diaz relies on his punches which are effective. GSP however moves around a lot, punches, kicks mixes things up with TD's.

...Very possible. Nick's taunting and bullying can play some key factors. Diaz can get under just about anyone's skin and he is fearless. GSP has a sports psychologist to keep his head straight which gives Nick a big mind advantage. The majority of a fight is mental and Diaz has nearly perfected it. 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.

Nick Diaz will beat GSP and it won't even be close. And if he doesn't at least I will have had more fun than the guys expecting the usual GSP fight.

I Think that the two guys who pose the biggest threat to GSP's title right now are Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz.

They both are very quick and have good boxing and High level Jiu Jitsu.

Even if GSP got the fight to the ground against Condit , As we saw against DY Kim he can Sweep in a number of ways, and he has superb submissions off his back.

Diaz IMO has even better submissions and a much better guard

(DIAZ VS SANCHEZ) just as a reference.

If the fight stays on the feet then Diaz and Condit Neutralize GSP's Speed because they are just as quick , they neutralize the Jab of GSP because they have similar reach and footwork.

this sounds a bit like GSP vs PENN right?

wrong , In the Penn fights GSP had much better cardio and got Penn Gassed , but he didn't avoid all of Penn's Signifigant Strikes, and all round game.

He can't do that against Diaz , who i consider to have the best Cardio in MMA P4P (he competes in Triathalons during Training)

also , Diaz can take a huge ammount of punishment , as we've seen before , in the paul daley anyone? and come back just as hard in no time.

One of the biggest things in this fight that makes Diaz such a threat is that he isn't coming into this fight defeated mentally before the fight has even started.

He's Confident, GSP is Mad.


It's Gonna Be a War and i think Diaz will Provide a Superbowl Weekend Upset
