Default Re: GSP vs. Silva delayed, GSP's next opponent is Nick Diaz.

Diaz will threaten from his back often but that's his only chance
GSP has great sub defence
if the fight doesn't go to the ground GSP has a big advantage in the stand up
Hendrickx can knock GSP out with one punch and could take GSP down
has a great amateur wrestling pedigree and his MMA wrestling could be better then Kosheck's
the danger Jhony brings is he could either win a decision or win by knockout
nobody at welter presents such a challenge
Diaz also lost his last fight,Johny earned his shot
it's a good business decision by the UFC
a marketable fighter who poses not a big threat
minimum risk high reward
