    gsp 18-2 in the UFC, defended title 7 times…
    diaz 7-5 in the UFC, never earn a chance to defend a title…

    even if diaz somehow get the win, he won’t hold title for more then 1-2 fights… he just can not win 3 in a row in real competition…

    • what’s your definition of real competition? strikeforce fighters have more than hanged with the ufc guys. Its stupid to call them minor league, especially diaz who was their champion

      • gnodeb

        OK, “real” doesn’t sound polite. Top is more precise. Let’s compare these two

        Diaz in Strikeforce (2009-2011): Frank Shamrock, Scott Smith, Marius Žaromskis, Hayato Sakura, K.J. Noons, Evangelista Santos, Paul Daley

        GSP in UFC (2007-2012): Josh Koscheck, Matt Hughes, Matt Serra, Jon Fitch, B.J. Penn, Thiago Alves, Dan Hardy, Jake Shields, Carlos Condit

        Looks almost like any fighter from GSP’s group can go 3-0 against first group and from the first group only Diaz can go 3-0 against second group.

        • Totally agree, but it’s not fair to call Diaz “strikeforce fighter”. He started in the UFC, left, and now is back. The SF competition in the Welterweight category is absolutely a step down..

          That said, I hope Diaz gets a career-ending beat-down and we can be done with this wannabe gangster cholo once and forever.

      • The recent Strikeforce fighters have all kicked ass. Strikeforce fighters are better fighters, they continue to win and finish.

    • You must have seen that in the forums. Diaz is a fucken beast. 3 in a row, no problem. Diaz by ass whoopin.

        Diaz is a good fighter as per his record and opponents during his career but GSP is a legend using the same parameters. It’s a shame Diaz was given the shot and not Hendricks.
