As far as striking goes... GSP was pretty banged up after that bout... so the reach difference didnt play too much into that... whatever the reach difference really was
Yeah I think half-guard is a very good position for a wrestler/g-n-p'er. GSP has great jitz from top position but I really don't think he will sub BJ.
I am interested to see if BJ unveils any new moves like the rubber guard that came out of nowhere and Nate Diaz's very effecitve step over move. I think BJ should be able to incorporate something new in his BJJ game.
I hope BJ wins, but I love GSP too, so it wouldn't suck to see him win. I really enjoy both fighters. I think GSP wins this one because I really haven't seen much from BJ when he fights at 170 or more. He is great but not the same.
