    If you are inferring anything from the bendo/nate fight for this one, then you will be sorely dissapointted. GSP doesn't have the power in his punches or kicks the way bendo does, Bendo was able to make Nate respect his power. No way GSP is able to impose that on Nick

    and Nick is a better version of Nate in everything. GSP might wanna do the bendo and take away Nick's vision but other than that the two fights aren't comparable

    No, because GSP is a more polished version of Bendo and Nick is a more one-dimensional version of Nate.

    GSP via UD, 5 rounds of Ground and Pound.

    You wanna go tell Josh Koscheck that GSP doesn't have power in his punches? Or BJ penn maybe? GSP - Nick will be a slightly more boring version of Bendo - Nate, with the same outcome.

    not according to GSP . He said himself that Bendo gave him the blueprint. Who shall I believe, a sherdogger or a multimillion dollar reigning champion of the UFC

    I agree TS, not the same fight, i think Nick's bjj nulifies the top control Gsp has making this a dangerous fight for Gsp. Who's the last person Gsp knocked out, and anyone that got punched in the face 100s of times would look like Koscheck, i'd be more impresses if it was done with one punch.

    When has Diaz ever nullified anyone's top game with his bjj? GSP will dominate the bjj in this fight with his top control passing Diaz's guard consistently. When was the last time someone came close to subbing GSP from their guard?

    The last part of that made me LOL.

    If being more polished means fighting more safely then you are correct.
    I'm LOLin at people thinking GSP is going to change his style completely out of no where and land devastating GNP like Bendo instead of his usual grinding self.

    This fight will look more like Condit v GSP than Bendo v Nate.

    people talk interchangeably about the diaz brothers, i find it pretty funny

    i also think that there are similarties to look at, but of course, people take it too far

    Nate's top wins easily rival Nick's.

    He just isn't scared of wrestlers

    GSP is basically Bendo but 10 times better. Better wrestling, better top controller, WAY better footwork (Nicks biggest weakness), better striking. Does Bendo even have more power? GSP has way more TKOs and usually does a shit load more damage to his opponents then Bendo

    Nate is more proven and has way better wins at LW then Nick at WW. Nate also has far better footwork, more accurate punches, better striking defense and even has a more proven MMA submission game. Fuck Nick does not even have a single top 10 WW win

    Nate had/has a better chance vs Bendo then Nick ever will against GSP

    Nate actually has beaten top 10 LWs (Miller, Cerrone)! Nick is 0 and 5 against top 10 WWs. I would say Nate's top wins are much better then Nicks
