He brutalized Condit and Diaz has 3 shit things going against him, A) he isn't nearly as strong, B) he has shit loads of scar tissue and C) he ignores that voice in the back of peoples head that says don't let that guy hit you in the face. Diaz has shit wrestling which means he is gonna end up on his back and he keeps a loose guard with almost no weight being given to maintaining control. He is gonna get brutalized worse than we have ever seen GSP beat anybody.

To be fair though, GSP was so much more opened to submissions when he faught Condit than I thought he'd be. If anyone can sink in one, it's Diaz.

I'm hoping Diaz can win the belt before he starts no showing press conferences again. I think it would be twice as funny.

nah, diaz has better cardio thats a fact and once he hits those body shots on gsp there wont even be an argument for gsp to stay fresh for most the fight. Diaz has a way better guard than any of the scrubs gsp has fought I mean condit flipped gsp from top position a few times and he isn't even close to as good as diaz on the ground. And diaz will land the most stifling shots standing. I do agree though that diaz has bad scar tissue and they could stop the fight due to cuts but that would be some real bullshit if they let that happen.

GSP was open to do more damage because similar to Diaz Condit utilizes space to set up his transitions and sub attempts which also lets the guy on top posture up and do damage. Neither guy tries to grab hold and cling from the bottom.

I question if Diaz has better cardio than Condit especially fighting a grappling heavy fight, we haven't seen Diaz carry a top heavy grappler like GSP. Body shots, please Diaz isn't landing those because GSP is gonna have him on his back eating elbows and punches. Condit flipped GSP? Yeah but again as I stated earlier Condit is physically stronger than Diaz. Nick is gonna be less effective with sweeps than Condit was and he isn't good enough to get the submission because honestly at the elite level the guard is virually dead and while Diaz has a decent guard he is no Fabricio Werdum. Who has Diaz subbed in MMA that is so impressive? Cyborg? Sakurai? Gomi? Lets get real none of these guys are anywhere near elite fighters and none of them are in the same stratosphere as GSP. Not a single striker has looked remotely threatening to GSP and every one of them including Dan Hardy had better TD defense than Diaz. Keep waiting and telling yourself Diaz has a chance because honestly its comical that people think he is a top WW.

Well if diaz isn't a top ww then neither is condit, I mean you guys seem to think condit dominated diaz even though diaz landed the better shots and was going forward and was closest to finishing the fight and condit was landing the most useless leg kicks I have ever seen. Diaz won that fight imo, I know that's off topic but here's the point, condit gives gsp a lot of trouble with his ok guard but diaz can't with his very very good guard? Condit's only weapon against GSP was a few kicks and he LANDS a headkick on GSP still and almost finishes him but diaz can't pepper him down? Also his TDD is not actually that bad watch the sean sherk fight when he was a lot worse he stuffed seans takedowns beautifully, condit defiantly does not have better TDD than diaz. This is gonna be a way harder fight for gsp than condit despite gsp once again having the homefield advantage

Im hoping for two rounds of GSP domination with Nick finishing a triangle or guillotine in in the 3rd. The reaction would be absolutely hilarious.

As for this article, Nick simply doesn't care. Dana knows it, he's only tolerating it for his own gain right now. If Nick screws up again I fully expect him to be gone and retire so I doubt he'll no show this fight now.

Diaz is stylistically a much worse fight for Condit than GSP.

Diaz was not landing the better shots at any time in that fight, Just because you like watching Diaz go straight forward and allow his opponents to punch him in the face does not make him better or braver he fights the stupidest style on earth with zero defense.

Only blind favoritism could allow somebody to think Diaz beat Condit, Diaz is Leonard Garcia with a black belt and better boxing and a love of that style cannot allow somebody to score a fight for him.

Condit didn't really give GSP alot of trouble one head kick was the only time he was even remotely in control.

What does the fact Condit can land one big shot have to due when arguing Diaz can land his 50 some body shots?One Diaz body shot is not gonna crumple GSP that is the difference.

I think the fact you went back 7 years against a guy who should have been fighting at FW just furthers my point.

I would bet you that not only does GSP win but that he does so far easier than the Condit fight.

It won't be an easier fight than condit, condit didn't win the fight with diaz also since what did he land? 0 significant strikes. Nothing rocked diaz or even came close to finishing him at all, but diaz landed the harder face and body shots and was the only one to come close to finishing the fight by TAKING CONDIT DOWN and having a little time with condits back. Sherk is in no way a fw I don't know where you get that from he has only lost to champions of the lw and ww divisions. I'll let the fight with gsp and nick speak for itself.

Diaz got Condit down because it caught him off guard it was the only time in the fight Diaz's little dino brain allowed him to realize that he kept trying the same thing over and over and it wasn't working. It took Diaz 24 minutes to realize that Condit wasn't gonna let him pin him on the cage.
