Will Nick Diaz will have rug burns on his back?


 Former Strikeforce welterweight title contender Tyron Woodley was recently interviewed by BJPenn Radio, and offered his thoughts on the upcoming welterweight fights at UFC 158 on March 16.

Woodley on Nate Marquardt vs. Jake Ellenberger:

“Jake has a very heavy left hook and a heavy overhand right,” said Woodley. “He has the ability to go for a double leg quite often, both of those guys are so similar. Nate’s a little bit bigger, he might hit a little harder, he’ll throw in some kicks and his ground game is better. I don’t know how Nate is feeling after his last fight (against Tarec Saffiedine) and if his leg is 100% healed up. Ellenberger is as hungry as ever as he tries to make his crack towards the top. He wanted that Hendricks fight because he knew how close Johny was to that world title. It’ll be interesting, the way things are going to play out in this division over the next three months will be pretty crazy.”

Woodley on Johny Hendricks vs. Carlos Condit:

“I think (Hendricks) is a nightmare for all those guys because the way he comes forward," said Woodley. "He’s coming from the southpaw stance with heavy hands and a decent chin and a great wrestling pedigree. He comes in there and throws everything hard. I think guys who can get in close to Condit, hit him inside and put him on his back are the ones who pose a threat. If he can keep Hendricks on the end of his punches and make it a kickboxing match, similar like he did with Diaz, he has a chance to pull it off.”

Woodley on the GSP vs. Nick Diaz main event:

“I think GSP is going to take Diaz down until his back gets rug burns on it," said Woodley. "I don’t think Diaz can submit him and he’ll lose by decision. If GSP lets Diaz get inside of his head with his antics, his taunting and entertains a striking battle that’ll put Diaz in the game. He didn’t entertain it with Josh Koscheck and I don’t see him doing it with Diaz. I think he’ll stick to the script and be the champion he’s always been. He’ll go out there, stick to a strict gameplan and get the win.”

I do remember round 2 being split between feet and ground now that you bring it up.   I 100% knew that it was a split decision officially, but even as a BJ fanatic I can admit that Cecil was wrong and GSP won 29-28.   Overall for the entire fight I saw BJ being the better overall striker and landing the more significant damage on the feet.

Fuck Woodley, gets a luck KO now he thinks he is the up and coming champ. Fuck GSP as well, Woodley is another GSP jock strap holder and is just kissing ass to part of the club. What is he going to say when Nick fucks that poor excuse of a champion up good??? He will hope he isn't next on the list. Nick is going to win, don't care how but he will win.

i just rewatched the fight and bj was getting a bit better of the punching exchanges (tho gsp was landing several kicks), but only for the first 3 minutes of round 1 in which bj also gets gsp right in the eye....he definatly was not working gsp over and round 2 was over 3 minutes of striking with gsp having the advantage through controlling the range and landing many more kicks so ionno why you think it was mostly on the ground....now round 3 there was quite a bit of grappling......and there was one person who claimed bj won Cecil Peoples gave the fight to bj it was a split decision

GSP will have rug burn on his knees when Nick is done with him!                   From all those double legs he will take him down with.

Spelled AvOcado wrong. Expected from your average redneck, sister-fucker. Please save your incredible wisdom for the trailer park and go back to gettin' that Longhorn from whatever gay cowboy's in your family.
