No, I didn't think you were defending MMA math, but since the subject was up for all I decided to add these elements. MMA math is natural and fun speculation. It would be stupid to believe it's an exact science, though. That was all.

Family Guy > South Park. I don't much care for the pop culture show which everyone else seems to.



Just means you don't know MMA
Well I'd rather be a moron than prejudice haha.

But I don't know if Hendricks' ju-jitsu is that good but he's got a bigger chance of beating GSP than Nick does imo. I would take his left hand over Nick's ju-jitsu, personally.

I don't agree. I'm a big Diaz fan, and I would pick GSP to win. But he can do what Condit did plus more BJJ off his back...at least in my opinion. I don't think he or Hendricks wins that fight. But Nick is much more well-rounded and a thinking fighter, plus he can get under GSP's skin more than a Hendricks. Nick will threaten off his back and have the better hands. Condit had the better kicks but didn't have enough BJJ to do anything too crafty.

You are a Condit fan, so you won't agree, but thats my opinion. Nick in my opinion has the best shot at beating GSP at 170 besides maybe Rory in a couple years. He is the only one that can match GSP's cardio in the division.

I don't think either guy wins either but GSP's last fight showed that even though he is crafty and very well rounded he's not quite invincible. For me, I feel like someone has a better chance of KO'ing him than submitting him, that's why I'd take Hendricks, because he did get dropped in his last fight where as I can't remember the last time he was in danger of being submitted.

I agree Nick is better off his back and could threaten GSP but he works with Estima, Gracie, Danaher and so many good guys on the ground he surely has that aspect wrapped up.

I'd say a slightly bigger chance yeah, although I think Nick doesnt really have a lot of trouble with Hendricks if they faught. Hendricks has the left, which is always giving a fighter a big chance with a KO. I dont think JJ is the way to beat GSP. I think his ground style doesnt really allow him to be too open to submissions these days (although I saw some openings Vs Condit so theres still a very good chance). I think for Diaz to win, GSP would have to try and strike early like he did with Condit. Diaz would have to smash him up in that round, which I think he could, and if it went down he'd have to be VERY dangerous with submissions (putting the fear into GSP's head). Then in the second, he'd have to keep it standing at distance, but really pick up his cutting off the cage and spin GSP onto the cage on occasions and work with the body shots. The longer the fight goes on, the more tired GSP gets, and Diaz would be able to tee off a bit in the late rounds. It'd be all about his gameplan in the second. If he allows GSP to have success, he will never get desperate as the fight progresses and thats when Diaz is put out of his own rhythm. He likes to put people on the cage, make them desperate, and then easily work from that. Would be such a hard fight for him to win, but its the biggest fight for him at his weight class and you can respect anyone campeigning for that magnitude of a fight.
