One thing I didn't see posted was Hendersons punches to the theighs. I see GSP useing that blueprint too.
TDD GSP has taken down the best of the best so at some point Nick will be on his back even if thats all he trained since he retired. So working on sub's will lessen GSP's GNP due to being extra careful.
My prediction is GSP will leg kick, fake shots punch to the theigh, and take him down late in the round to secure a strong dec.
Shouldn't read too much into this. All CJ said is that Diaz is going to make sure he's really strong off his back by training a shitload with Shields, who has a very strong top game. It would be insane for him not to work on his guard for this fight.
I just hope he doesn't go in with a really shitty game plan. I think fighting off of his back CAN work, Condit busted up GSP pretty good off of his back, but it's not going to win rounds. The main problem with fighting off of your back is that any legit MMArtist has spent countless hours in another guys guard. All the triangle/armbar escapes are deeply ingrained in their muscle memory. Subbing a guy like GSP from the guard is almost impossible. Landing something when he's already hurt is another story though.
