    GSP and Nick Diaz share 5 common opponents.
    Diaz is 2-3 with 1 stoppage.
    GSP is 6-0 if you count both Penn fights with 4 stoppages.

    Who is the finisher again?

    Put down the joint bro, might help you make a more logical statement than rambling on like an incoherent moron.

    Oh snap.

    And if Diaz goes to a decision with GSP, that will make 3 in a row for him. Decision Diaz is what I shall call him.

    It's impressive that GSP can finish a true LW in BJ Penn. Very few fighters at any weight have been able to finish Penn. Of course, it took GSP four rounds - and the Penn/Diaz fight only went three - if it had gone another round, Diaz may very well have finished Penn.

    But GSP isn't a finisher. Not anymore. He hasn't finished a true WW since 2007. Nothing wrong with dominating your opponents for five rounds, but to say GSP is a finisher? Not lately...

    GSP is better at everything, including finishing. GSP finished BJ Penn, Diaz didn't.

    Penn has only been finished by GSP and Matt Hughes have ... the two greatest ww fighters of all time.

    they have different styles and GSP is a more physical athlete than nick is and I think that contributed to him finishing guys that nick couldn't. Their fight will be an interesting one for sure. Leaning towards GSP.

    "May" doesn't mean shit. GSP did and Diaz didn't, and that's all that counts.

    condit layed the blueprint to beat nick. can gsp stand with nick for 5 rounds effectively outstriking him and avoid subs if it hits the ground?? im not making any predictions for this fight. both are elite fighters that can do it all. let's hope for a good competitive exciting match.

    GSP has a really bad style for Diaz. In fact he's gonna have the same problem his little brother had with Bendo. Well similar. GSP by stick and move with occasional take down. Same strategy as Condit, but without the flick kicks, instead it will be his wide stance jab.

    I agree, GSP isn't finishing anymore. Unlike early in his career.
    Nick has struggled to win let alone finish in his entire UFC career.
