Well let us remember, BJ is obsessed wth not losing guard, whereas Diaz will use a lot more aggressive BJJ off his back.

But the more I think about it, GSP top control will be enough to dominate Diaz on the ground and I can't see GSP standing with him for long at all. Unfortunately Diaz doesn't have big one punch power and his pressure style on the feet isn't going to get a chance to pay off against GSP who will just take him down at will.

The more I think of it, the easier I see GSP taking this decision despite how far Diaz has developed and come over the last few years.
