    This time ol' Nick(elbag) Diaz says GSP is a "p--ssy who can't take a punch". :tsk: I know this is largely hype to try and draw a fight against GSP, but Diaz has zero class. Yes, the guy has world class cardio, an iron chin and good BJJ, but GSP is the superior athlete and a better wrestler. Besides, ol' Nickelbag isn't heavy-handed (sans his KO's of Lawler & Oishi), and like GSP...Diaz has (also) been TKO'd by punches once.

    Last I heard they were talking Koschek - Diaz in February.

    I'd rather have Diaz win that one but his weakness is wrestlers.

    GSP would likely take Diaz down at will for a boring UD if they ever fight.

    Hendricks should be fighting GSP next but Johnny is not a draw or some crap. So, they gave the slot to Diaz. UFC 158 is when the fight goes down.

    Dana claimed that GSP asked specifically to fight Nick Diaz. Diaz has the boxing, cardio & BJJ advantage, but I think GSP's wrestling, athletic and speed advantage will give him the edge.

    GSP is bored with MMA and wants to quit so he needs that extra motivation that a trash talker like Diaz gives him. Johnny should be in line for the title fight but I understand GSP's reasoning.
