To be fair, anyone with a French accent seems on the verge of saying "I surrender" at any time. (Kidding Tuvok)



Don't worry, he can't reply

I think Gsp is going to go for takedowns from the very first second of the very first round. And continue with that strategy all night.

If Gsp can find a way to let loose with Gnp, something he hasnt really done against bigger opponents, he can cut and bruise Diaz up. But he definitely isnt going to stop him.

Regardless of how this fight turns out, Diaz is going to be pissed off and taunting GSP's style of fighting by the end of the fight.

Think we'll see a Paul Daley vs Koscheck incident?

GSP is definitely taking this fight. If things get hairy on the feet he'll just out wrestle him to a UD.

Yes, or maybe a Mayhem/Cesar Gracie guys incident. If GSP LnP's Diaz it's going to be ugly in there afterwards. The only hope for there to be no fireworks afterwards is a GSP finish, because even if Diaz wins he will probably act the fool. They should invest in security guys under age 60 for this one.

The only fight GSP has done nothing in was the Jake Shields fight.
GSP's not gonna LnP Diaz. Hes gonna take him down and smash his face in. This is gonna be another GSP vs. Fitch I think. Diaz is too much of a bad ass to get finished haha. Ill laugh of GSP sub's diaz.

I apologize if you're not replying to me, but it feels like you are. Unsure really. But i didn't say Gsp does nothing in his fights, but rather when he has a strategy to wrestle, he does very little GnP against fighters who are bigger or bulkier than him. In theory, it makes sense that he would want to hold position more, so that he uses less energy and makes his opponents use more, rather than expending himself on Gnp and incidentally letting his opponents back up.

The opponents he's wrestled and did very little Gnp - Thiago Alves and Dan Hardy and Koscheck 1. Both very big for the division in terms of Mass.

The opponents he's wrestled and did Gnp to shreds - Bj Penn and Serra 2 and Sherk. All small for WW in terms of Mass.

Against bigger opponents he usually opts to stand against the Wrestlers, or to hold position against the strikers.
