Weigh ins start in 15mins on sportsnet, everything leading up to GSP vs Diaz has been great to watch, the conference call, the pre fight press conference, so you don't wanna miss this weigh in.

Diaz is such a rude little prick and a tough guy wanna-be. I hope George does break his face. Literally break it.

Hmmm, after watching Diaz's post-fight interview with Joe Rogan, almost sounds like Diaz was saying George had the inside scoop on his strategy or something.

Interesting, and unfounded.


After Diaz lifted George's arm post-fight I didn't think he'd make comments like that.

GSP has had lots of time to prepare for this fight and you know.. watch tape?

The guy is an animal, and his camp helps him prepare for the best he can be. Plus, GSP hasn't changed his style in fighting either as seen through his take-downs, ground & pound, and jabs.

coming from the guy who was saying George was taking steroids and noone has been testing him. Nothing surprising there.

I think the only reason Diaz lifted his arm was so after he could take a few more slaps to George's face

GSP vs Hendricks is going to be a great fight.

Hendricks has the wrestling to keep the fight standing and has the power to knock out George.

Condit has a hell of a chin, mad respect for that guy.

GSP would lose that one. Just haven't seen the killer instinct from GSP, last couple fights its just been wrestle on the ground, takedown, few hits, takedown. While Silva tries to end every fight and hasn't look lackluster except against Sonnen the first time

It's what everyone wants to see ... if it happens, I call it first, it will end in a draw ... is that possible in MMA?

Dissapointing main event....the whole fight was basically GSP trying to rape Diaz for 5 rounds.

For a fight that had so much hype and bad blood, I expected GSP trying to make a statement and exchange punches with him.

Anyone who believes he has a snowballs chance in hell with Silva is gonna be very very dissapointed.

I wish that GSP would take more risks. We all know that he can take people down at will but it'd be nice to see him try to knock people out or at least stand more.

Main event was boring. Sucks that the co main event was only 3 rounds. Also hate that Hendricks won based on the take downs alone, when he didn't control anything on the ground. Regardless Condit vs Hendricks was a good fight, but he will get dominated by GSP

GSP most definitely has a legitimate chance of beating Silva. It goes both ways. You don't dominate your division year after year after year and be recognized as one of the greatest in the sport and in history then get your ass kicked in a "super fight". Doesn't happen. Not that this matters anyway because Johny is next on the list for George

Main event: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..................

I've officially become less a fan of Georges "No Killer-instinct, i can't finsh, lay and pray" St. Pierre after tonight. Pathetic. He is miles ahead of Nick in terms of skill set and can't even be bothered to push for a finsh??? He's killing the sport. Him and Greg Jackson.

You sure you watched the fight?

GSP stood and exchanged with Diaz quite a bit.

This guy has a game-plan that's working for him, so why change it? that's the style he fights and hes the best at it.

Cool. You bolded a word.

I guess throwing punches and elbows on the ground is not fighting. I guess superman-punches, and jabs are nothing.

Definitely.

He has 8 straight title defenses. He hasn't lost in 6 years. He is recognized as one of the sport's all time greats. But he's going to potentially blow all of that by changing his style, his game plan, so Joe Blow finds the match a little more entertaining? Fat chance.

If people don't like watching him fight, fine, but I don't get why these same people continue to tune in and watch him compete... nobody is forcing you. Take a hike and save yourself the 25 minutes.

Other welterweights are going to take note of this fight. Scramble on the ground, give up your back if you have to and stand back up. GSP doesn't go for submissions and doesn't have knockout power so there isn't much to worry about. You could get up quicker and not lose rounds getting stuck on your back.

I was very surprised that Georges stood and exchanged with Diaz as much as he wound up doing.

I'd say he more than held his own with the striking too, his timing seemed to be giving Diaz fits.

12-13 minutes of standup; Nick Diaz has nothing to complain about. He didn't execute.

Condit should of won, when Hendricks took him down he couldn't do anything at all. Condit pounded him while on his back. Kept getting back up and constant attempts for submissions, while out striking Hendricks.

It's disappointing how take downs make such an impact on the scorecard as they didn't do any damage to Condit. It was more like a boxer hugging when he's getting thrashed.

Silva is too big and too good for GSP, that much should be obvious. I'm not even sure that GSP is big enough for 170, not if he wants to safely dominate in exciting fashion anyway.

He also may be declining, or still rusty from the layoff, he didn't look like himself in there.

Uhh I hope you know that he cuts to 170 but walks around at around 185-190lbs
