GSP will have the gameplan in place to beat Nick, he always has, always will. I'm actually excited for this fight though, it should be good. I still expect GSP to dominate though, as I truly believe Nick isn't up to the task of taking him down. I still think Diaz wouldn't beat the top three in the division, but if he proves me wrong, all the power to him.

Can't wait to see it.

Josh Koscheck has wrestling with just the added bonus of a right hand used to shut the lights off of overmatched opponents. GSP took both away and made Josh’s eye purple and swollen.

Jake Shields is one-dimensional and pretty much quit going for the takedown after the 4th or 5th stuffed attempt. As a result, three decisions.

Anderson Silva fought Patrick Cote, who can’t compete with him at any level and the fight sucked. He got Thales Leites, another one-dimensional fighter who refused to engage standing up. Demian Maia? Pretty much the same thing. Those fights were deemed not too good.

Does Nick Diaz have a chance of beating Georges St. Pierre? I'd say so. He could be the first fighter in forever to make GSP work. He’s a fearless son of a bitch with really solid skills in more than just one aspect of MMA, the same can’t be said for Hardy, Koscheck, and Shields.


Diaz def has the tools to beat him, but this has also been said about GSP's last few opponents. I will give Nick his dues though, that mofo will def bring the fight to him, so we may expect to see GSP finally bring his complete A game.


Edit: sorry about the double post!

One of GSP's easiest fights if it materializes.

GSP will take him down at will and dominate him on the ground.

I actually think GSP would finish this fight either by tko or sub...

I'm gonna go with GSP winning via decision again. In 33 fights Diaz has only been stopped twice. Incredibly tough guy, i'd like to see what he brings out of GSP.

GSP's recent opponents have all had one huge thing in common. One dimensional. All of them. Koscheck, Shields, Alves, Hardy.

Diaz can fight and fight hard any where the fight takes place, the same can not be said for the opponents listed above.

And yet, I'd probably pick Kos and Alves to beat Diaz..

90 percent certain Diaz would TKO Alves within two rounds. People don't really seem to get Diaz' pressure boxing. His pressure boxing and combinations are the best in the sport, that's the truth.

Alves has leg kicks. Diaz would force Alves into the cage and over whelm him with combinations to the body and head, eventually getting the TKO/KO..

Alves took John Howard to decision. Diaz would of finished him within a round.

I think Diaz schools Kos on the feet and on the ground.

I don't see Diaz subbing GSP from his back though, which is surely where the majority of this fight will take place.

Still excited by this fight.

GSP's top control is damn good, but so is Nick's BJJ from his back.

When has GSP ever had to control a fighter with an aggressive BJJ game like Diaz'? As much as I love BJ, he hasn't got the most aggressive bottom game out there.

Nick will constantly threaten with subs from his back.

I think this fight is so intriguing. Nick's pressure boxing vs GSP's jab and move boxing. Nick's aggressive BJJ vs GSPS's top notch top control.

Can't wait.

I doubt Diaz would dictate anything vs Alves standing, he'd get his legs chopped off first of all. I think Alves would be the aggressor and win via TKO or decision.

Koschek's athleticism would beat Diaz into a decision, I can see Kos out wrestling him without Diaz being able to pull off a sub.
