nick diaz was gsp's toughest fight

sure nick got handled pretty easily but he also easily put up the toughest fight against gsp. he, out of gsp's last few title fights, was the only one to stuff his td's and the only one to rock gsp standing with brutal body shots.

Thoughts?

Diaz was never in danger, but Gsp was really never in danger either. Another cake walk for Gsp is all it was.

Out of his recent matchups I'd say Condit takes the cake.

Condit was "Modern Era" GSP's toughest fight.

Diaz was just another walk in the park for him.

diaz hurt him with a body shot in the 3rd and 4th rd. had he been more agressive he could of finished him.

doesn't look hurt at all.

probably because Nick isn't a power striker.

if anything, Diaz looks more bothered after that exchange than GSP does.

condit only had success with a fluky headkick, nick on the other hand boxed gsp up every close quarter exchange they had. + hes the only one to stuff multiple gsp power doubles.
