    Thoughts?

    Think there's some value there?

    GSP opens at -430

    Edit - it's actually -430 lol

    You can't afford it
    I'm curious how much the line will move in that case. I figured it would open at closer to +500 and the Diaz fanatics (the ones old enough to gamble anyway) would push it into this territory. We'll see.

    Time to bet on GSP. That is not that different than the Condit betting lines

    Not everyone who bets on Diaz is a "Diaz fanatic"

    It may not have been your intent, but regardless, I do not appreciate the condescending undertone of the post that makes it seem as if anyone who bets on Diaz is a mindless drone who does not appreciate the nuances of MMA

    Diaz should've opened at +125, imo.

    Whenever a fighter has a large fan base that you aren't a part of, they immediately become 'fanatics' or 'nut-huggers'. He's just following the rules.

    No. Nate and Nick are extremely similar fighters, and Benson wrecked Nate badly. GSP is levels above Benson, and can and will implement a similar gameplan.

    Yep. I think Nick is better than Nate by a little bit, but GSP is much better than Bendo. Should be a fairly easy 5 round decision for GSP.

    He should have opened at -500, but GSP has got a punchers chance.
