Diaz going to eye poke him twice as hard. lol

Sheilds wasn't doing anything with his striking until the eye poke. It was only after GSP couldn't see that Sheilds started to land.

I don't see why anyone really wants to see this besides unnecessary hype. Besides the crap loss to Noons, who else did he lose to? Sherk, Sanchez, and Karo. All are/were pretty damn good grapplers. He hasn't fought a decent grappler/wrestler since he left the UFC (unless you count Frank Shamrock which I don't ). GSP would take him down, avoid the subs with ease, and grind out a 25 minutes snorefest decision.

Honestly, there is no reason to think that Diaz would be a legitimate threat to GSP's belt.

If that were a hindrance GSP wouldn't have defended his title for the last three years (exaggeration).

Diaz fought Gleison Tibau who is a very strong grappler with good take downs and a strong ground game. Diaz destroyed him, on the ground.

Come on bud... we really can't use Gleison f'in Tibau as an indicator that Diaz would do well against GSP.

Tibau the lightweight with an 8-5 record in the UFC? Wow, impressive.

Just pointing out a strong grappler who Diaz beat at their own game (when apparently Diaz hasn't beaten any one with good take downs)

I'll have to re-watch the Sherk fight but I remember Sean getting hardly any take downs on Nick and getting reversed on the ground when it did end up there.

I'd say Diaz is top 3 at WW when it comes to BJJ from the bottom position. He has very slick BJJ and great pressure boxing.

Is anyone saying Diaz isn't good at BJJ or good off his back? I don't see anyone disputing that, or I'm certainly not. Diaz has awesome jitz and is one of the most dangerous guys in MMA off his back but does that mean he can threaten GSP off his back? I would say not a chance despite how good Diaz is because GSP's top control is ridiculous.

Combine that with his excellent cardio, size, strength and the fact that GSP is not exactly a noob on the ground (BJJ black belt himself who has been subbed exactly one time 7 years ago) and I think Diaz's chances of subbing him from his back are virtually zero. He probably has a better chance than almost everyone else but that doesn't mean it is a good chance. Throw in the fact that Diaz tdd isn't spectacular and GSP's takedowns are unstoppable and I can't see a way for Diaz to win. I suspect he'd be on his back literally 10 seconds into the fight.

Diaz is good but gsp is great. Diaz's boxing may cause some trouble for gsp but I think GSP takes it. He won't stand in front of Diaz he is going to be constantly moving.

On the ground, I don't see Diaz tapping GSP.
