it's blatant trolling and wind up play. obviously just Nick copying what GSP said that time ago (obv) but more or less saying 'just b/c you did that doesn't mean i'm afraid'.

I'm not saying Diaz would win. But he would have more off his back for Georges than Condit did.

Neither am I.

A fighter who only wins by decisions? What a fluke !!!

I was 100% sure, if he wins? Its by a 5 round D. No way is going to break or KO Condit.

I love the Diaz brothers. Big fan. But when was the last time Nick subbed anyone (off of his back) with even remotely decent top control? It would be a great fight in that Nick would constantly look to land from bottom, like Condit, but his chances of submitting GSP aren't what people sometimes make them out to be. Good as he is, Nick's ground game can be nullified by good top control. Factor in someone like GSP, who has great top control, and yeah... long night for Diaz.

Diaz lol cocky for no reason. The same outcome would happen had this been GSP vs Diaz.

Dick Diaz has too big of a mouth

Diaz isn't impressed by GSP beating the guy that he couldn't do anything against? Idiot. Doesn't matter either way, Diaz will never beat either one. Diaz has much less to offer than Condit.

This fight should have happened on Super Bowl weekend. It would have been hilarious. I'm 99% sure GSP would make him look like "road kill" after the fight. Diaz won't tap, but he'll be bleeding profusely, with swollen eyes and mouth to boot. Then Diaz would be flicking his finger to all the Montreal fans...haha.

Hendricks
Diaz

Ironically two team mates will be lurking. I THINK that may be GSP's cue to go up...but he's probably waiting for Anderson to retire.

Diaz isn't even relevant enough to talk his way to a shot at GSP. Condit handled him, and GSP battered Condit. There's really no need for us to see GSP dismantle Diaz.

I know he's just trolling, but he's just making himself look stupid.

GSP did more damage in 1 round to Condit, then Diaz did in 5.

I don't know if he's trying to go the Chael route and talk his way into a title shot, but he's not going to get a free pass this time. Hendricks is the likely #1 contender, and Diaz is coming off a loss and a suspension. He lost to a guy that GSP dominated for the entire fight, with the exception of a few seconds in the 3rd round.
I think Diaz gets paired up against Kampmann if/when he comes back, or possibly Ellenberger. That could set up the next contender after Hendricks.

GSP/Diaz was a fight I really wanted to see happen last year, just to see somebody shut him up. Condit did a good enough job though.

The BJ Penn fight was quite a big eye opener to me. BJ really had nothing for Diaz on the ground, nothing. And this is BJ Penn we're talking about here, I still think that right now, present day, BJ Penn is in the top 5 when it comes to a top control game. He submitted Kenny Florian like he was some schmuck from the streets as soon as he took him down.

BJ took Nick down, got the back straight away but couldn't get both hooks in, Nick defended very well (when BJ takes most opponents down, it's really only a matter of time before he takes the back, sinks hooks in and starts working for the RNC - see the Jon Fitch fight). Nick rolled out, huge scramble and pushed BJ off him, then got back to his feet.

I thought that was a very significant aspect of the fight. Whilst BJ isn't known for being a wrestler, he actually possesses one of the best take down/take down defense ratios in the sport and His top control is out standing.

If BJ couldn't control Nick on the ground for more than one minute, I'm not what any of these wrestlers are really going to do to Nick.
