Oh, it's an excuse, all right, johnny-boy. Pre-packaged & ready to go.

Sorry to make you defend yourself - didn't mean to derail your endless monologue. Carry on.

Many Diaz fans pick GSP to win a decision. As do I.

If GSP goes out there and puts it to Diaz standing I will give him a round of applause.

GSP thinks he is a better striker. His fans or crazy Diaz haters think he is as well. I'd love to see it.

If GSP makes it into a good real fight I will be happy.

I expect GSP to jab and kick then get a TD to secure rounds. It isn't an excuse, it is reality. It is what he does.

You and others may think it is an "excuse", but it will just be fans who didn't care for the fight or that style. If GSP goes and kicks the shit out of Diaz like he says he will do...there will be very few excuses Sunday.

Even GSP knows he can't finish Diaz.

Diaz has atrocious head movement. I think GSP can jab the shit out of him and won't even need to take him down. GSP still will take him down at some point to make sure he takes each round, but I don't think he is going to need to.

Diaz is a great puncher, but his head movement and footwork are average.

It's because he knows he can take a punch. So he focuses more on offense then defense. He is willing to take one to give one.

Which top strikers has GSP strictly struck with and KO'd? Which fighters has GSP submitted through the use of a Gogoplata?
There's more to striking then KOs and more to grappling then subs. Georges might be the best MMA grappler in the world. He swept Jon Fitch and passed BJ's guard repeatedly - Nick wouldn't be able to do either of those things.

And submitting Matt Hughes with an armbar is a lot more impressive than submitting a completely gassed Gomi via gogo.

To be clear I'm rooting for Nick and he's probably my second favorite fighter, but I'm just being realistic about his chances.... Even if this wasn't a terrible stylistic matchup, he's pretty outgunned skill-wise.
