Don't you think he's looking at the bigger picture and at himself. His fans would rather see him win than watch him do something they've probably already seen before on Youtube.

Like they can't find something else to do in Montreal.

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.
That rant is objective?! You really dont believe all of that do you?! Oh wait you do, I almost forgot that hardcore Diaz fans arent the most rational bunch to understand, like Nick (not talking to you johnnyg).

ooooohhhhhh. SHALLUUUUNGGEEE. Tell me than, counterpoint instead of generalizing and classifying myself as just another irrational diaz fan. Take anything I've said - not what diaz fans have said, What I've said - and school me on the subject.

That's terrible boxing technique? That's one of the finest displays of boxing we have seen in MMA, and you sit here and label it terrible boxing technique.

You are absolutely clueless and one of the many MMA fans who mistakes Nick's unorthodox boxing style, with a terrible boxing style. I guess Joe Calzaghe is a terrible boxer as well.
Dude, as LOTS of others have posted, that was NOT good boxing technique.
True boxing isn't punching; it's landing your shots while ensuring you're in a position to make the other guy miss.

Winging wide arm-punches, with your chin wide open, while leading with your forehead, is the anithesis of boxing.

You're absolutely right: UFC WW champ with 10 consecutive title defenses dating back to '07. Nothing "badass" about that all all.

I suggest you learn how to do comprehensive reading and stop wasting time. His titles have less to do with his martial arts credibility than what he's actually demonstrated in the ring.
