Depends what sort of kicks he is throwing. If he is really laying them in there which I think he has some solid kicks....not Aldo or Shogun level, but hard kicks....he may slow Diaz down.

He could also go the leg tapping route of Condit if he doesn't want to fully commit. Nick landed many more head shots than Condit. But Condit landed I think 60 some kicks. Mabe 3 of those were "hard". GSP could get away with that same style of tapping and moving...but also throwing in end of the round TDs. Taps still count.

If we see GSP circling and backpeddling the whole fight, i'm gonna be a sad fan of mma Saturday. I wanna see these guys scrap like Sanchez/Diaz, both hungry, both wanting a win, both wanting a finish, both looking to give the fans a show. I know one will for sure.
Agreed. Even if GSP wins, I just hope it is a good FIGHT.

Can you win by 'middle finger from your back in full guard'?

No?

Ok, GSP by very obvious uncontroversial unanimous decision then.

Well, everybody's like "Diaz got under GSP's skin" and whatnot

Well, we all know GSP's as smart as a fighter as they come and he always does calculated things.

Facing a guy like Diaz, who is very emotionnal, I believe that GSP's attitude is nothing but an act to get Diaz really into this fight emotionally, maybe even too much so the strategy goes out the window.

GSP's always starts the fight weeks in advance by picking the attitude he's going to adopt in order to put his opponent in the mindset he wants him to be.

My 2cts here, but you never know, maybe Diaz got under GSP's skin.
