Georges St-Pierre Thanks Benson Henderson for the Blueprint on How to Beat the Diaz B


Quote:
It’s likely Georges St-Pierre has already broken down and analyzed exactly how he intends to deal with Nick Diaz at UFC 158.

For more than a year now, St-Pierre has had Diaz on his radar, and the longtime welterweight champion is known for his ability to adapt and neutralize just about any fighter he comes up against.

That doesn’t mean, however, that St-Pierre doesn’t mind seeing just how well a good game plan can come together, and he was watching UFC on Fox 5 recently for that very reason.

UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson took on the younger Diaz brother, Nate, and soundly defeated him after five rounds of action. Henderson used a mix of leg kicks, takedowns and pressure to keep Diaz off balance throughout all 25 minutes.

Now Nate Diaz and Nick Diaz are certainly different fighters, but stylistically they can be very similar in their approaches, and St-Pierre noticed just how masterful Henderson was in picking apart the aggressive style employed by the family duo from Stockton, Calif.

“I watched very carefully your fight against Nate Diaz. It was a great display of athleticism, technique and wrestling,” St-Pierre told Henderson on Saturday night.

“I’m going to try to use some of the stuff you have done in the fight to win over Nick Diaz as well. I’m going to learn from what you did and try to apply it in my game plan. Thanks for showing me the blueprint.”

St-Pierre may be showing his hand here on purpose because he’s smart enough to know that Nick Diaz can see the interview as well as anybody, so it’s really anybody’s guess if the welterweight champion will actually employ those tactics or not, but he has a little extra strategy in hand if he needs it now.

St-Pierre will face Diaz in the main event of UFC 158 on March 16 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Opps, didn't realize the title was too long. It was suppose to say Blueprint for Beating the Diaz brothers.
