They said he wouldn't pass bj penns guard also they said he wouldn't out wrestle koscheck ! GSP has nothing to prove to anyone and as much as I love nick Diaz his chances of winning this one are slim to nil Phone Post

BJ Penn was tired as fuck and much smaller...Im calling it now. GSP will not be pushing Nicks leg down and passing to side control. Aint happening!

Not if it's from closed guard. He'd have to get it in the transition on a takedown. Phone Post

You're insane if you think he won't pass his guard, GSP's guard passing is on another level imo

Yes, I am insane...but Nicks guard is on another level. Who can you remember passing it?

I think he'll try and fail and decide to get back up and Condit Nick then take him down near the end of every round for points. It'd be interesting to see Nick take GSP down. I don't think his top game is as developed as his bottom though. If Nick locks him out and/or in a miracle stuffs GSP's takedowns then GSP will have to run IMO. Phone Post

Looks like the only people to pass Nick's guard were Diego 3 times so very long ago and Karo did it once. Thank you Fight Metrics. Phone Post

Can you remember the last time he's been on his back?  He's avoided all wrestlers for 6+ years.

People really seem to believe that nick is soooo much better than gsp on the ground. Gsp will be very comfortable anywhere Phone Post

Big difference between being comfortable in his guard and being effective in his guard. Phone Post

I've heard from a few BJJ black belts that GSP has passed their guards with no problem, So I would not be surprised if he does pass Diaz guard.

George pretty much only uses one pass. I'm pretty sure Nick will be ready for it...and I'm sure GSP knows Nick will be ready for it and will have plan B...which is good, but it may land him in trouble.

Can't wait for the Diaz fans to be shut up after this fight. And to think I was a fan of Diaz when he fought in Strikeforce.

Yes only because Diaz goes for sweeps and subs and likes rolling into scrambles to get to his feet.
