Dana says GSP "flipped out" after hearing Nick's comment. GSP-Diaz is next.

ufc UFC
Dana has never seen gsp the way he was tonight - nick will fight gsp - condit has agreed to wait

GSP said: "he's the most disrespectful human being I've ever met and I'm going to put the worst beating on him."

Dana says Condit has agreed to step aside. They are looking to make Diaz-GSP on super bowl weekend. Condit vs TBD will be on the card too.

By "Put the worst beating on him" GSP actually means "Hold him down for 5 rounds and try and do just enough to keep the ref from standing us up."

Very classy move by Condit and makes the most sense since diaz earned it by whooping bj. Gonna be a sick fight! Diaz gonna make it interesting hopefully Jake can help with his wrestling but diaz reach could be huge here. Hope diaz whoops that ass!

He'll get Sonnen to help with his wrestling too. Condit's manager said Condit didn't step aside. GSP chose Nick, apparently earlier Nick was talking **** to him in a hallway....

NorCal stand up!! Bitter sweet because I love BJ but I'm happy Nick finally has the light shining on him.

I told my lil bro that Nicks height and reach is going to be a big problem...he wasn't convinced because of BJs legendary status...didn't get to watch it, feel like i missed a really good one.

I feel the same way...BJ & Diaz always been my fave fighters.
I hope Nick goes HARD on GSP BEFORE the fight. Get in his head. Talk about his lay-n-pray or as we'll call it from now on "Tebowing"! LOL!

Key is head games before the fight. Nick will lay it on thick! And unlike Kos he can back it up with better technique and strikiing and JJ and just overall physical traits. CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

Sorry fellas Nick is gettin his a$$ beat worst then Fitch did. And im in no way a Diaz hater, although he always pisses and moans and complains about anything and everything I love his style of fighting, the combination/volume punching, the sick submission game, his willingness to stand when he can make his life easier by using his BJJ. I mean how sick was that brief time on the mat BJ and Nick had??

But I gotta call it like I see it, like it or not GSP runs the welterweight division and hes on another level. And im saying this as a guy who would watch a Nick fight over a GSP fight any day. Nick is NOT stopping those takedowns, I wont say he has no chance submitting GSP but I dont think it will happen, and GSP is fired up, bad combo.

To be honest I dont believe Nick can beat Jon Fitch although while I feel GSP can stand with Nick (albeit not for an overextended amount of time) I know Fitches only chance of winning is to take it to the ground.

All praise to Carlos Condit, aside from the legendary Chuck Liddell I dont see anyone agreeing to go from a title shot to a #1 Contenders match especially after they were guarenteed a title shot, I know I sure as hell wouldnt have moved aside.

Although it came from Condits manager, thats still Condit stepping aside. GSP can chose all he wants, Condit still has to agree to step aside particularly after he signed the contract. He musta got paid a nice bonus, plus like a true warrior he still taking a contenders fight when he coulda pulled a rashad and waited for the winner (no offense rashad lol big fan).

I know the stand up was sick but im still not over that brief ground battle penn and nick had, top notch BJJ displayed by both men

Nice to see a place like Stockton have the oppertunity to have a native as a UFC champ.
Im in a similar position as Stockton natives, im from Newark, NJ which is a rough area like Stockton but our neighborhoods dont get much shine because rappers aint hollering out our cities and cuz when ppl think cali they auto think LA while Newark is the quiet cousin to NYC (i can hop on the train and be in manhattan in less then an hour).

Oh yea when I say our neighborhoods arent the easiest to grow up in im not saying it to brag or do some ghetto show off. My city as well as some neighboring towns average 30-50+ murders a year according to the Star Ledger, the top Newspaper in NJ, and Stockton made the top ten list for most dangerous cites in 2011 on a piece MSN.com did ealier in the year.

Sorry for getting completely off subject im just blasted lol

GSP wins is by holding his man down for 5 rounds...whoppy *****
Diaz should call GSP out and ask him if hes gonna win by holding him down like a queer or fight to Finnish ?
Ether way last night we see more action from Diaz V Penn than what we have from the last 5 or 6 GSP fights !

as much as I respect Nick Diaz, I have to say he is a little retarded.

after they gave him the title shot, he goes "You see, I have to look like the bad guy in order to get a shot."

LOL. if they didn't give him a shot, he would have said the same thing. "They're not giving me a shot because of my reputation."

After a really good 25mins interview after which I almost became a fan, I have to say I can't see myself ever backing this guy even though he's fun to watch.

GSP has the wrestling...

Diaz has better BJJ and better hands


The thing is with GSP's striking is he doesnt come over with the right hand much after his jab f*cking. He comes with the #1 but barley comes with the 1-2. He has a great jab but doesnt use it to set up anything really lol GSP might win a DECISION by holding him against the cage and running and jabbing but Diaz should control his own if he has his back on the ground

Condit should rematch Hardy. :lol1:

The only thing about nick-gsp is. I have to wait soooo ****ing long to see it.

On Superbowl weekend?

If they put it on Superbowl weekend in the actual city the Superbowl is going to be held... it'll be another reason why UFC/MMA continues to grow at the rate it has. During those weekends, those cities get an influx of celebrities, millionaires, and billionaires, who want to be seen and entertained. People will go just to be seen.

Don't mean to bring boxing into this section, but boxing promoters are just... HBO tried last year, but they put Bradley-Alexander in the 60K seat Silverdome and Detroit, one of the poorest cities in the US.

If Diaz can neutralize GSP's takedowns and/or jab, he's going to give himself a great shot at winning. It's going to be tough because Pierre's all around techinique is concise, but he can do it. Body shots will take away someone's reflexes and technique.
