Nick Diaz says B.J. Penn is better than GSP

by Jeff Cain | source: mmaweekly.com
 

“I think B.J. is a lot better fighter to be honest with you, on a technical standpoint. He’s much better at jiu-jitsu, boxing, even on a physical level I wouldn‘t count him out. I don’t think he should be fighting at this weight,“ said Diaz on a recent media conference call. “I think he’s a much better fighter than GSP all-around.

Diaz isn’t happy about fighting Penn, someone he knows, likes, and has trained with in the past

“I’m not happy about it at all. I’m fighting a guy that’s my friend, or was my friend and now I’m fighting this guy. I’ll be set to fight,” said Diaz. “I signed to fight a certain guy (St-Pierre). I thought we had a deal. That’s kind of where I’m at on it

“I’m going to deal with it. This is hard times, just like it’s been. I’m not expecting it to get any easier,” he continued. “This definitely doesn’t make it any easier. I don’t like fighting people that I already know, or I’ve already met, or trained with, or have video on me. We’ve spent a lot of time training together. It’s kind of shady feelings going into fights like that. I’m just doing what my manager says.”

Completely agree... Bj always comes to fight and gsp use to come to fight pre Serra 1. Now he's only concerned with winning no matter how boring it is.

Jack Furious - In what fantasy world would you pick Jose Aldo over Tito Ortiz in a fight?

Cool. No harm done, but thanks for clarifying. I was a bit confused for a minute. :-)

HAahhaa, I totally did quote the wrong thing. I was bitching at lionsoul for whining about GSP's weight, then saying Edgar has nothing to do with GSP-Penn comparisons. Also how he's pretending to know what aspects of a fight are determined by physical qualities and what aspects by technical, his decision completely biased, and not to mention he clearly gives preference to certain physical aspects, again with a bias to support his penn-nuthuggery.Course, even then I wasn't on the right page for what I was gonna quote XD This was last night while I was procrastinating for a neurology midterm.
