Greg Jackson already exposed Nick once, if you don't engage him and keep moving you can out point him on the feet.

Yeah Jackson exposed the scoring system flaw. Movement>damage, even if that movement is backward.

There is no flaw in the scoring system, maybe if you're a Nick Diaz fan but the scoring system isn't the reason Condit out-stuck him and Nick win be getting any desperation takedowns in this fight. Georges wins easily.

You would think a year off Nick would be working on how to deal with a point fighting fool. I think he would handle it a tad better.

But yea, wouldn't surprise me if the champ jab and ran the whole time. Mixing in some weak leg kicks to make it look good.

But I thought GSP was "mad". Or is that just a made up thing to sell fights?

Either way trying that style isn't the smartest move for him Condit fought to a fairly close decision. We all know GSP doesn't like to take any risk what so ever. He will certainly at least throw in an end of the round Greg Jackson TD to make sure he takes the round.

Are you really comparing GSP from 2007 to GSP of today?

No Condit did not have Ali like movement. Condit did enough to out point him and that got him the victory.

Condits height and length was a huge factor in implementing the gameplan he did against Diaz. He was in fact the first fighter Diaz had came up against who could match his lankiness and length. It posed a lot of problems for Nick when it came to picking Condit off at range.

GSP is much shorter than Diaz. Given how Diaz has a major advantage in the height and length department, and given that he is a southpaw, GSP is going to find it much more difficult to implement the kind of gameplan Carlos Condit did against Diaz, not to mention the fact tat Condit is just a flat out better striker than GSP as well.

When did I ever say he didn't?

Greg Jackson a man who focuses on strategy and winning exposed a flaw in his stand up, GSP uses him for strategy, if GSP sticks and moves there's really no reason he should lose.
