I think it's intentional, he wants you to throw back, he wants you to land and get confidence that you can keep throwing. That's what he wants.

Anyone else annoyed that Diaz fans keep saying the "GSP is a wrestler, Diaz is an MMA Fighter" line? When you fight in the UFC, you are an MMA fighter, you are both fighters. GSP learned to be a great wrestler, but he doesent have a wrestling background. Just because MMA fighters have different styles honestly doesnet make them any less of a fighter. And how can you really say that Nick is more of an MMA fighter than GSP when GSP actually has more tools and fighting techniques at his disposal than Nick and has less holes? If anything, GSP is more of an MMA fighter than Nick.

PS. You can try to hate GSP with Nick in saying that he is pampered and stuff, but if you listen to Nick he actually wants to be pampered too and is just mad that no one is pampering him. He isint trying to "keep it real" if he could, he would like to switch places with GSP. Thats an admirable goal. Nick just wants to be a good guy, even if he cant express it, even if people (like his entourage or fans) wants him to just be a bad boy.

Diaz is a bit overrated if you ask me. His TDD is crap, he is not good defensively.

Though I think his BJJ game really gets overlooked, he could compete at an ADCC level, would he be successful? probably not.

I think he gives GSP troubles on the feet if he's smart and does not just walk forward swinging because he will be put on his back before he has a chance to get going.

And I think that when he is on his back he will give GSP some troubles.

Are you kidding dude ? GSP is great at two things , taking people down and not getting submitted.

His boxing looks good against people who's boxing skills are MEDIOCRE at best. His boxing looks on par with GOOD boxers because he only boxes for no more than 2 minutes at a time. Keep him on his feet for long enough to get figured out and GTFOOH

Diaz's striking is years ahead of GSP's.....His Jui Jitsu is eons ahead.

GSP is a mirage of an real martial artist.


THIS is the story of GSP.....picks up things very quickly but doesn't stick to it because he mostly uses his natural athleticism to win. To call him a martial artist would be like calling jean claude van damme not a sell out.


Martial Arts is a huge part of who Nick is. To the point where what he has learned in martial arts has been incorporated into his virtues and who he really is based on his knowledge and disciplines. (cheesy but truth)


GSP......is kinda like a jean-claude van damme, not in fighting styles - but in PERSONALITY. A SELL OUT WHO THINKS HE'S A 'BADASS'. Given the rules of the ufc, he's a "bad-dude" but as a "martial artist" - Not.

This is an objective opinion regardless of the outcome of the fight. GSP is a sell out. Diaz right now, is infinitely more of an martial artist than gsp.

Sure, gsp is an "mma fighter", but to people outside of the sport no one gives an airborn f***.

No one cares, but it's closer to the "Truth"- DIAZ motherFer.

Guess keeping it real to Nick means dissapointing fans and not honoring his obligations. Wondef how other fighters are able to deal with these pressures. Must be tougher than Nick.

His fans probably support this because he's 'fighting the establishment' or saying '**** you to the man'

Anyone else see Fertitta saying "thats embarrassing"? after the Condit decision?

Didn't know he said that until the countdown.
