GSP... whether its standing or on the ground he takes this one soundly..

GSP has the Endurance, Wrestling Pedigree and Fight Savvy to win this one where ever he chooses... i honestly see Nick having no advantage in this fight except maybe BJJ, but good lucc gettin GSP to the ground... thats damn near impossible...

I think Nick is being severely underestimated. I think that Nick has the ability to force GSP to exchange with him and turn it in to "his" kind of fight. Nick has the length and is threat wherever the fight goes, shit he is even a threat off of his back, no way is this walk in the park for GSP even if he does win.

I like Diaz in this one.

GSP has no confidence in his stand up Diaz has the edge in striking and chin but GSP won't stand with him long he'll take him down but Diaz is no slouch on the ground either he'll work from the bottom enough to make GSP think and whne the fight stands back up Diaz will take GSP out.

Shields has to be one of the worst strikers MMA yet he was popping GSP with jabs and was never came close to being stopped.

diaz has been exposed every time he stepped up against top level competition, you guys over overestimating his ability

Remember that silva has laid his share of eggs in fights too

In the end GSP's safety first style will do him in against Diaz. Diaz' BJJ is just as good as Jake Shields and GSP wanted nothing to do with Shields ground game. Nick has more options.

The bad part for GSP is that he was trying his hardest and just couldn't pull the trigger enough to end the fight to where as Silva gets bored and starts to play around.

Diaz is also a much better fighte than he was say 3-4 years ago he's on a good lil run right now.

Diaz is the only real opponent left for GSP, but he will get beaten just like Shields. GSP is the much better athlete, better movement, more explosive, and a crisper striker. Diaz wont be able to get it to the ground, and will get picked apart on his feet.

Its not that He wanted nothing to do with Shields' ground game as much he controlled the fight from start to finish.. why go to the ground when you dont have to? Just like Courture vs Toney.. why throw a punch when you can win without having to....
