Jake is a great person to train your bottom game against, but I think gsp is too good at mixing up his gnp with his bjj. When it's on the ground I just see gsp delivering some hits, distracting diaz long enough for him to sneak in to half guard, then diaz will eat a few more punches to get it back to full guard.. rinse and repeat.
