There is a f*cking massive difference between Vegas and San Luis Obispo. Far more significant than the difference between Toronto and Montreal. Liddell is just not a good example.

Look at the scheduling. They schedule Montreal (and also almost all Canadian cards) to put GSP on them. You can count on 1 hand the number of Canadian events GSP has not been a part of (97, 113, 115, 131).

Would this officially put Diaz in the UFC or is this just a cross promotion fight where if Diaz loses, he's back over to Strikeforce? Obviously if he wins, he's staying in the UFC

If he wins, the world is officially over. But yea, I think it would be one step closer to the end of the Strikeforce promotion, one champ at a time.

Its an exciting match-up, but I doubt Diaz will look good against someone who chooses not to brawl with him.

The only thing Diaz has is a good offense when someone's back is against the cage, good height and size, a good chin and good recovery from being hurt.

If GSP can keep the fight in the middle of the octagon, or take Diaz down, there may not be anything Nick can do.. GSP could pick Diaz apart with his jab, and keep him guessing with his wrestling and takedowns.

I don't see Diaz winning this..

Actually the diffrence between Saint Isidore where GSP is from and Toronto vs San Luis Obispo to Vegas is about 50KM (30 Miles). Not exactly f*cking massive.

The discussion was about Montreal where its presented to the fans GSP is from, and Toronto. Compared to San Luis Obispo and Vegas. It was not a matter of geography (I assumed that was apparent, since this is not a geography forum). More a matter of population, fanbase, notoriety, etc. In that case there is a significant difference.

It's an awesome feeling isn't it?! I got to meet Fitch this past summer and it was an awesome moment.
