Being angry and being a nervous wreck are two different things. GSP wants to smash Nick. Being a nervous wreck would imply fear, and I don't sense that. It's going to be a beautiful fight and a solid effort by both men. I can feel it!

There is no roadmap for beating GSP. Nick needs to rock him, and hard, and it wouldn't hurt if it was an accidental but illegal strike in the midst of an exchange like how Serra got him. GSP will take nick down and it will be ugly and meh. I might still bet on nick tho... love me my diazes

I'm feeling it too brother. Round 1 is going to be fireworks.

EDIT



Check out Zahabi, right behind GSP. He's like Dana... eager to jump in and stop any nonsense. By comparison, look at Nate standing behind Nick. He's like, "meh".

I don't know...he is angry, but that doesn't look like confidence the way he scoots up to the face off it looks like wtf I better protect myself. Then he throws his hands up like he needs to compete for weigh in winner....

Considering only those images of the weight in, I would say GSP don't look as confident as I expected. Diaz, in the other hand, is as calm as he can be. Looks like GSP has a lot of pressure and unsure of his performance. The way he mimics the lifting arms gesture of Diaz shows that.
That said, I still think GSP wins by unanimous decision and I don't expect much of the fight, no fireworks at all. I see a close fight, closer than most people think.

What I hope to see is Diaz always pushing the pace. It seems like sometimes, St. Pierre is easily able to out strike some opponents because they are so concerned about the take down that it throws them off a little when it comes to their own "rhythm." I hope Diaz doesn't care and just keeps pushing forward as usual because let's be honest, whether he's tentative about the take down or not, he's GONNA get taken down either way. He could fully concentrate on a sprawl alone, and St. Pierre is still going to put him on his back. That's what he does, and Diaz doesn't have the take down defense to even challenge St. Pierre's impressive MMA wrestling. For that reason, he shouldn't even worry that much about it. Just stay aggressive and show that Diaz pace and conditioning. Some of you may disagree with my logic because it opens him up even more to a take down, but do you honestly think he can stuff St. Pierre either way? I highly doubt it, and if he worries about the take down and doesn't stay aggressive, that's more points he's losing if it goes the distance, which it probably will. I don't think he's capable of stuffing enough take downs and out pointing St. Pierre on the feet in between. St. Pierre has the best MMA wrestling at 170, and besides, it's not like Diaz isn't a threat off of his back. St. Pierre won't do whatever he wants to Diaz on the ground in my opinion.

I think St. Pierre should be an obvious favorite, considering Diaz's past with wrestlers, but I can see Diaz making this a fight. He just needs to keep up that pace and not be tentative like some opponents are. St. Pierre may still have his hands raised in the end, but I don't think he's leaving without a scratch.

I think thats a good analysis and is correct just like Matt Hughes. Diaz simply has to go in there and not give a damn about what GSP is doing. Go in there, pressure, and throw with reckless abandon. Dont worry about the takedown, its going to happen regardless, might as well score points with striking before he gets taken down. Diaz cannot be gun shy, its his best bet to win this fight.

This will be a boring fight and there is only one reason. The champ is an excellent wrestler, much much stronger and a smart guy.

GSP knows Nick is a better boxer, GSP knows that Nick has miles on him in bjj.

GSP will take the safe road once again here. Take DIaz down, glue his chest to his come over with the elbow and risk absolutly nothing on the ground. Diaz will be wrestlefecked and the masses will cheer.

Boring boring same old story. Bring on NIck Diaz and Anderson Silva, then we'll see an interresting fight.
