As I've said before, I see Diaz to GSP as what Sonnen 1 was to Anderson. Hendricks is the contender, but GSP's got issues with Diaz and wants to fight him and I think for all of his dominance, has a right to ask for that fight. I don't believe for a second(and think it would be foolhardy too) that GSP is ducking Johny and think to appease him, Hendricks should be given either the time off to wait for GSP to finish up with Diaz or fight Nate Marquardt for the SFWW title and then get the big money unification bout with GSP, where his credibility will be more established.
You are in the minority that doesn't think that GSP is looking for the much easier fight in Nick Diaz.
GSP would do to Nick what Rory Mac did to Nate in RD3.
I think it is a smart business for GSP to go for Nick Diaz, but I still think it is ducking the more difficult challenges of Hendricks, the rightfully #1 contender, and Anderson Silva, the vanity fight.
I would rather see Rory MacDonald fight Nick Diaz.
