It's a good fight. How is it a superfight? It's two guys in the same org in the same division, and one guy is going to be a huge underdog.

Truth ^

I'm still looking forward when/if this fight happens but definitely not a super fight. How can you class this as a super fight, when a guy is coming off a lost, IMO. Phone Post


Super beat down. A completely outclassed opponent who will be jabbed, put on his back and bloodied up for 5 full if the Dr does not stop it first.

Pretty much, yes. Even though Nick isn't a ttile holder, his reputation speaks for itself along with selling itself.


Dude, seriously.

As game and gives no fuckyish as Diaz is, his reputation as extremely vulnerable to wrestling based fighters has not been dispelled.

Who is he going to fight? The guy with unequivocally the best MMA wrestling in the game.

Superfight? Not at all. I think it is a complete stylistic mismatch in fact. GSP is too cerebral to be goaded into ritualized slap-for-slap display of machismo that Diaz is actually brilliant at getting guys to do.

The fight you want to see and the fight you need to see for Diaz to have a shot to realistically win is not very likely.

In all likelihood the fight will look very much like Condit/Diaz only with GSP being slightly more effective standing, and taking Diaz down at will a couple of times per round before standing back up.

That would be my prediction for the ultimate outcome based primarily on one fact. Diaz has shown that he doesn't have one shot KO power, but he does have one shot submission power.

I feel like your definition of one shot slightly differs from mine.

I don't know but for some reason I think your definition is wrong.

I want to see this fight more than any in the 170 division but Nick is coming off a loss and suspension. Hendricks is the true #1 contender. Phone Post
