Urijah Faber: “I’m going to go with Nick Diaz on that one, just because I don’t see GSP knocking him out. He’s never been knocked out and GSP’s been more into wrestling guys. I think that from watching Diaz, he’s super, super deceiving, and is able to pressure guys and make them get tired and fatigued like no one else........

Ha, you're not going to make GSP tired...GSP makes you tired.

GSP would wrestle Diaz for 5 rounds.

Really Urijah? Are they friends or something? Have they trained together? I can't see really any other reason he would say something like this.

"he's more into wrestling guys"
can we stop with this already? GSP had all but abandoned his wrestling game in the past 2 fights and dominated the standup.

oh and Jeremy Jackson knocked out Diaz way back in the day

Urijah could join Diaz inside the cage for the UFC's first ever 2 on 1 fight, and I'd still take GSP by UD.

props

Urijahs so tiny, GSP could probably use him as a weapon to beat down Diaz.

I'd bet that the career pick percentage of professional fighters is about 50%.

Eh, that was a TKO. Nick was not unconscious. It was one of Nick's earliest fights. He also went on to beat Jeremy Jackson twice. Even GSP had a couple losses to avenge

Urijah has been hanging out in the Diaz 'circle' too long if he really thinks this.
