GSP is amazing at everything. His stand up is crisp and technical, and adds in a bit of flash with some of his kicks. His jits is very solid, good offence and brilliant defence. His wrestling is second to none in MMA.
The best thing he does however is putting it all together. No other fighter transitions from stand up to a take down and moulds BJJ with offensive wrestling together like GSP. He is fluid, and near perfect technique with everything.
That, as much as it makes him one of the p4p greats and near unstoppable, also holds him back. He is very robotic, fighting pure technique and seems to completely ignore instinct (this is my opinion on watching him fight). If he followed his instincts in fights I have no doubt he'd of finished Kos and Shields. He just doesn't though, he keeps it all tight and perfect and little room for risk.
I'm not critisising him here, it's just how I view him. I think he'll absolutely demolish Diaz inside 4 rounds, probably ending with stoppage due to cuts. GSP makes everyone's face not named BJ Penn look like he's attacked them with scissors, and Diaz cuts easily.
I honestly think this will be the best showing from GSP in years, he'll do it all. Beat Diaz up on the feet, take him down, bloody him and beat him into the canvas until the doctors step in.
