Picking a 5 to 1 favorite!

Risky pick!
Yeah and I don't understand how GSP winning with wrestling is suppose to prove he is a better striker or better at BJJ? Maybe you can stretch it to GSP's defensive BJJ is better then Nick's offensive BJJ?

And it may be true. Defensive BJJ is dominating the scene.

It is harder than ever to sub guys in MMA. I know Fitch is good, but Maia had his back for 15 min just about and couldn't come that close to a sub. Struve had Hunt on the ground for a while and didn't come too close to a sub vs. what people thought was one of the worst ground fighters in the UFC.

Really?

I'm trying to remember that fight- didn't GSP drop Jake at least twice in that one (I definitely remember a nice head kick)? How many times was GSP knocked down?

I'm not a huge stat guy. But Shields beat him standing a couple of rounds...I believe he won 1 or 2 on the judges scorecards.

It was a terrible stand up fight none the less. They both looked like rookies.

According to the stats GSP landed 7 more significant strikes than Jake. Jake landed 4 more total strikes.

The diaz fanboys are hilarious. All I see all over the 'net are excuses for the upcoming loss (lay n pray) and it's pathetic. Haters gonna hate.

How is it an excuse?

People have said GSP will probably win from being on top. That he isn't a better striker or BJJ fighter....especially not significantly.

People like you keep crying "excuse" yet I haven't seen an excuse yet..

Humor me and quote the excuses you have seen. Don't be a liar and lets see you proof.

Again? What excuses?

We all expect that if GSP wins it will be via wrestling...like it usually is vs. decent stand up fighters.

How is that an excuse?

It's not... I'm saying on Sunday if and when Diaz has been outstruck on the feet or (unlikely) submitted, the Diaz fans will have a million and one excuses.

Of course, GSP will probably wrestle him to a decision but I think he can, and hope he does, beat him in a stand up fight.
