Well we can probably argue this all day. I don' think that Nick has faced nearly the talent that GSP has gone 5 rounds with.

That cuts both ways. It can be argued that GSP hasn't been pushed either. Nick will not be tentative like other GSP opponents and will come forward. GSP won't be used to that kind of pressure. Nick has a tendency to wear down opponents, and eventually overwhelm them. He will have no problem going into the deep rounds.
