Threaten with submissions and sweeps constantly?

I don't even know if GSP would want the fight on the ground.

Always been GSP fan and always felt Nick might humiliate him.

I feel like GSP is damn near impossible to sub. Condit had a really active guard too, GSP saw everything coming though.

**** hendricks. diaz was clearly the number 1 fight for gsp until he got squeeked out by condit. the condit fight didnt diminish diaz standing at all so he is next in line.
diaz aint ganna win so hendricks will get his shot.

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

As active as Condit is off of his back, Nick definitely has the superior BJJ of the two.

Delayed? Try cancelled. Dana would need to pull a gun on GSP to get him to agree to that fight, and GSP probably would still take the bullet.

Nick Diaz's ground game is way better than Condits. Nick's ground game is scary good. GSP isn't going to take that risk imo, he'll keep it on the feet.
