Diaz vs Silva?

So Diaz's camp has chimed in recently and said that if GSP won't take Silva on in a Super Fight that Nick would, and he would agree to any weight.

The real question is, how does Diaz do against Anderson Silva?

My personal thoughts are that Nick is the perfect person to fight Silva, in the regards that Silva will have another highlight KO to add to the reel. I legitimately appreciate Nicks willingness to fight anyone (not named Mayhem Miller), but I think this would be a fight he shouldn't be asking for.

Yeah a couple fighters have taken cheap shots at GSP..BJ Penn also basically called out GSP..... You know Penn would fight Silva...


But with that being said... I hope someone tells Nick he would get laid out...

Diaz just has that natural survival instinct, like Henderson did.....oh....

I really like Diaz, but this fight is way above him..... Even his style is just about the perfect for Silva.

This would be awesome. Of course Nick doesn't have as much to lose. But getting KO'd in style wouldn't keep him up there for a soon 170 title shot.

But this would be great, Diaz without any wrestling advantage and even physically weaker than GSP willing to fight ANderson at any weight.

Talk about a guy who isn't afraid of an ass whooping (because I believe Anderson surely would). He has confidence in his chin. He really has nothing to gain from getting picked apart by Anderson, but he likes a challenge to see where he is at amongst the best of all MMA.

Nick isn't making 15 million a year either.

Even with a win Nick doesn't have the chance to be considered the best of all time.

See we could go back and forth with this. Ultimately GSP has more to lose. But not as much as Anderson does. If Anderson beats GSP he will always have teh excuse that he was the bigger man and just THE MAN. He could still go to 170 and defend his title for several more years and still be the poster boy for Canada. GSP already is going from 900-1 mill ppv buys to 700,000. And probably less vs. Hendricks unless it was a stacked card. Trying vs the best won't hurt his cred. And beating the best would push him to levels he doesn't even imagine right now.

I'd watch Diaz - Anderson and so would a lot of you. Nick annd Anderson will still make their money even if Georges doesn't want to share.

It wouldn't hurt his cred, but why bother? GSP's got it made at 170, he just beat his toughest test in Condit and who at 170 really stands a chance to beat him? Hendricks? Unlikely, Diaz? Probably not. Marquardt? It's an interesting fight but I'd still pick GSP. He has a lot of years left in his career and he could potentially tie or even break Anderson's title defense record.

If Anderson loses a fight and I think Anderson will lose soon, then Georges can still become the GOAT by never having to fight him. Look at what happened to Fedor, he lost a fight and now Anderson took his spot, if Anderson loses Georges can take his spot, and maybe in the future Jones will take Georges spot. He's young enough to eclipse all those records if he can remain champ.

I think it's a unanimous opinion, at least on this forum that if they do fight Anderson would probably beat him, I know many feel that way and I do as well, but if I'm GSP, why bother? All it takes for him to move up on that list of 'Greatest of all time' is to keep doing what he's doing and for Anderson to finally lose, and Georges is much more complete than Anderson so the chances of Anderson losing before he does is more likely.
