Diaz has ok but highly overrated BJJ, it will be enough for him to survive at least for a while but not near enough to end the fight or even to be able to use it to get back standing. GSP is far too strong of a wrestler and is too well versed in BJJ. Diaz has only ever submitted horrible fighters and medicore fighters that were gassed or hurt.

Diaz could be the best well rounded fighter in the world outside of his wrestling but he would still lose this fight because wrestling is what he is going to need. The only way he stands a chance against GSP is if he can goad him into a stand up fight, and even then I think GSP would pick him apart from a distance instead of playing Diaz's games.
That's why I said GSP will most likely win. You quoted me, but that was a response to the saying that Nick isn't a well rounded fighter, which he is. But his one obvious weakness just so happens to be GSP strongest point (who is quite well rounded himself). BUT IF (big words) GSP decides to stand and bang Nick will open him up.

GSP never stands and bangs. If GSP decides to strike with Diaz he will pick him apart from distance. GSP isn't as stupid as most of Diaz's other opponents and won't play into Diaz's games.

GSP will do what he always does, make his opponents look helpless and ineffective, even when they are some of the best in the world. He did it to Penn, Hughes, Alves, Kos, he will do it to Diaz.

This will be a boring fight, but not because of lay n pray, it will be boring because Diaz is worse by an order of magnitude than half a dozen fighters GSP has already beaten. Beating guys like Lawlor and Daley doesn't make you an elite fighter, beating guys like Hughes, Penn and Fitch makes you an elite fighter.

I'm aware that I sound crazy, but I believe it. GSP just got sloppy in the stand up and got clipped. He had to just tighten up some of his striking defense, not completely neglect his killer instinct and fight in the most cautious manner ever.

People see these as positives to GSP's skill set, I genuinely don't, I think they are negatives. He's had to see sports psychologists before to help him improve his mental game. I've thought for a while now, that his biggest weakness, his own mind. The whole greasing scandal. GSP clearly felt like he had to add some sort of other advantage going into that second BJ fight because he wasn't super confident he could beat him. That to me, is a weakness in GSP's mental game.

He's that cautious and under confident that he bought into the Dan mr knockout power Hardy striking hype and didn't try to stand with Dan for any more than 30 seconds a round...

Killer instinct and finishing fights IMO, is quite a huge part of assessing a fighters ability. For a p4p top fighter, he has a ridiculous lack of that killer instinct and a lack of self confidence and I think if there's one man to poke holes at those specific flaws, it's Nick Stockton Mother ****er Diaz. He has fight running through his veins.

- GSP would fair a lot better than you think on the feet if he were to stand.

- Diaz doesn't have heavy hands in the first place so its no real threat.

- If it is a threat, it goes to the ground.

- A 2011 GSP is too strong, too athletic, too well versed himself in jiu jitsu to be submitted within a 5 minute time frame. When you factor in GnP, it makes it even more difficult.

- Cardio is irrelevant considering its a 5 round fight and it doesn't matter who has the better cardio when neither fighter will gas within 25 minutes.

the hate train can't be too bad if no one has bothered to post the picture of GSP after the Shields fight.

I cheer against GSP because I'm Canadian, and he has a different philosophy than me.

Ask the numerous people who were KO'd TKO'd by his weak hands if they were a threat. Gsp won't bang with Diaz, he's got to much of a gameplan. Just like you said, it goes to the ground the instant GSP feels a threat. My hope is, that Diaz gives GSP a reason to feel nervous in gaurd. It's going to be a much better fight if GSP feels threatened both standing and on the ground. I wouldn't even mind if he won, if it's a back and forth scramble.
