At about 3:55 Roach says no dice on this being a stand up battle. He gave Nick props and gives a good interview.

Are people supposed to be surprised GSP's game plan will be based on take downs, safe/calculated ground and pound and keeping distance on the feet? Phone Post

You would be surprised how many ppl feel GSP could beat Nick standing without going to the ground, I'm not one of them.

Can a blue repost the video for me please. Phone Post

Why would anyone surprise with that? GSP is a thinking fighter. Certainly he's not going to do stand and bang with Nick, well at least not until he soften him up first with leg kicks and GNP first few rounds to fuck up NIck's mentally.

I don't think he'll win the stand up even with his td threat but I respect the opinion. Phone Post

Doubtful, honestly. The only Diaz has to be scared of is those jabs, and I don't think Diaz will back down from a jab. Phone Post

^That and the power double, 20 minutes on his back, and a 45 point UD Loss. We've all seen what happens to strikers who put weight on their lead leg and have to fear a TD. This is coming from a Diaz fan.

It's going to go to the ground and Diaz is going to go go GSP.  I mean what the fuck homie.

 

Someone will try to put the belt on Diaz's waist, Nick will throw it down on the ground, spit on it and then scream:

 

CesarGracieJiuJitsuStockton209What!

 

And then leave the building, like a fucking goddam boss.

 

He might flip everyone the bird and he might not, but at that point it really wouldn't matter anymore.

I don't think he can win the stand up battle either. He'll get some good shots in but as soon as Diaz starts throwing head/body combos, he's going for the double leg. Phone Post

No disrespect, I know he's a great boxing coach, but has Roach always talked like that? Did something trigger the slurred, stuttering speech or has that been present from childhood?
