I want Nick to win. He is what MMA should be about. Great skills and a will to fight. The sport is slowly but surly being taken over by wrestlefeckers. Lay and pray, steroid abusing, point fighting athletes. It's often not about the greatest fighter but more so about the greatest wrestler.
Don't get me wrong, I do not think that GSP is a roider but he is not an entertaining fighter IMO. He used to be one of my favorite fighters though,but that was a while ago.
He has a decent stand up game and a good submission arsenal and knows just enough to get himself out of trouble everytime.
GSP greatest weapon in MMA is his strength, wrestling and knowledge of the ground game.
GSP would loose a boxing match with Nick Diaz everyday.
GSP would loose a JJ match against Nick Diaz everyday.
But GSP will, and I hate to admit it, will dominate Nick Diaz tonight. He'll take him down over and over again. He'll never risk anything with his ground and pound, he'll be tight and his chest will be glued to Nick, He will use those elbows and he'll win by a decision, or if Diaz gets to frusterated and tries something desperate. GSP will win by a TKO,
This will be a boring fight.
I will be cheering for Nick tonight you better believe it.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day...
