You would think a guy with that wrestling, strength, control....and I guess BJJ would be a little scarier on top. If Penn, Diaz, or Shields had that kind of wrestling and top control you would be seeing monsters . They would easily sub most anyone from top. I understand BJJ is more than subs.

But in terms of offensive BJJ? I don't even rank GSP. Couldn't finish an full armbar on Hardy. Doesn't even look for many subs even though he is usually on top of a tired out fighter for long periods.

I forgot to add in "for 2 rounds". Shields is perhaps one of teh worst strikers in the UFC.

GSPs last 2 finishes are against 155ers. Penn just quit because he is a quitter. Serra sat there and GSP kneed him in the body until the ref said Serra can't do anything I am stopping it. Not even real stoppages.....vs. 155ers..

This is clearly GSP's fight to lose.
GSP has a significant advantage over Diaz in BJJ and striking? Is this a typo? If not, what on earth has lead you to believe GSP has SIGNIFICANTLY better BJJ and striking than Nick Diaz?

Which top strikers has GSP strictly struck with and KO'd? Which fighters has GSP submitted through the use of a Gogoplata?

GSP simply hasn't done these things standing. The most impressive he's been on the feet is when he dropped Thiago Alves, it hardly compares to Diaz's accomplishments in the striking game.

We're talking about a GSP here who didn't want to stay on the feet for longer than 20 seconds per round with Dan Hardy. If Nick fought Dan Hardy, he'd stand with him and out box him silly and earn the TKO victory. That's the difference between the two fighters standing.
I was waiting for this.

Do you have any thing else to add? Paul Daley is a high level striker with devastating power. Diaz stood toe to toe with him and became the first man to ever KO Daley. That's incredibly impressive. Meanwhile GSP didn't want to stand for any extended period of time with Dan Hardy.

Well lets not talk about his striking.

Lets talk about his awesome BJJ where he used it to sub the grappling expert Dan Hard.....oh wait..

Ahh yes, Dan Hardy, the grapple retarded Brit who GSP couldn't sub in 25 minutes, whilst Chris Lytle tapped his ass out within ten seconds of the fight hitting the floor.

No, I've got all I needed out of this thread. I'll be back on Saturday after Frenchy wins a decision.

BUT WAIT A MINUTE!

HE and Lytle both have blackbelts! They are both equally as good on the ground!
