    So GSP says Nate Diaz is a big name and is a money fight, but sherdoggers still claiming he cant do PPV numbers lmao.

    Lmao. Wanting to fight Khabib over Diaz is an easier fight?

    Nate's next fight will likely draw higher PPV buys than his average fight, but that will be purely because people will want to see if he's still any good after a long layoff i.e. does conor vs. nate III still make sense.
    Otherwise, he is not a draw or money fight.
    The only way he draws well against opponents not named GSP or Conor is if he fights Nick. Now that would be an awesome fight, awesome promotional angle, awesome buildup, awesome everything.

    Of course. Against Khabib he only needs to do one thing, defend the takedowns. It's the perfect matchup for him. You realize we're talking about GSP, right? A big WW who just won the MW title whose speciality is wrestling.

    Not that Nate will be likely to pose any real problems. But at least he has the potential to do some damage.

    Maybe you didn’t listen to the entire interview, in which he clearly stated having no interest in fighting Nate.

    Whats more important is that GSP openly states there is no point to the fight. Further reinforces his goal to have a legacy fight rather than an easy payday.

    The UFC is pushing that fight. Just like the UFC was pushing Woodley vs Diaz.

    Your anger is misguided.

    GreaseP is so obviously shook by Nate

    He knows his "slick" ways and "poison" won't work this time around.

    155 St Pierre... going to be interesting but is a must to be 3x champ... Nate is a good first challenge. Dude has the top two UFC 25 fights. Plus throw in some Nick beef to the mix and I will buy at $65...
