I'd be very surprised if Diaz out strikes GSP... Very surprised.

Considering Jackson already coached one fighter to victory against Diaz, yeah it does mean something. Bringing up Machida whose not comparable to Diaz in anyway is ridiculous.

MMA is being dominated by point fighters and GSP is the best at that, he'll get in, he'll get out, use his jab, take him down rinse and repeat for twenty five minutes and that'll be the fight. He doesn't need to be taller or the same size, he just needs to be quicker, which he is.

Nick Diaz is who he is, he'll stand there call GSP a bitch, taunt him and try to get him to 'fight' him. He hasn't changed his ways since the Condit fight and you'll see on Saturday.

Really? Because Nick is a much better striker with much more reach then GSP. I'll be shocked if GSP is even that competitive in the standup or even attempts the standup for any amount of time.

I disagree, I think GSPs standup is a lot more effective than Diaz's.

We'll soon see though.

GSP doesn't like to stand, but when he does it's not very impressive. It's really only effective because of the threat of a take down. If it was a striking only match he would get destroyed badly. But the threat of the take down makes his standup more effective.

What? They have identical reaches @ 76"...?

Nick has arguably better offensive boxing, but in no other way is his striking better than GSP's:

Versatility, speed, power, effectiveness- all are either on par or worse than GSP's.

Arguably? LOL yeah and GSP has arguably the better offensive wrestling...It's not even comparable. GSP has a jab but in a standup fight he would get owned by Nick. His boxing is much better then GSP's.
It won't matter anyways since GSP doesn't want any part of Nick on the feet. He will get his ears boxed off ever second he tries.

I know, I just think it's hilarious that people actually think GSP has the striking skills that Nick has. They really aren't comparable, but again GSP won't stand with Nick so all this is just pointless talk really.
