    i can see how this fight makes sense on paper, but there is a reason that nick ran to sf with his tail between his legs. gsp v diaz would be a very different fight than shields v gsp. primarily because nick has striking skills and crap wrestling so gsp would use his wrestling and top control to cruise to a ud or tko. Nick will regret taking this fight because he will likely lose his sf title and then get thrown to the wrestling brutes that are indigenous to the ufc.
