“To tell you the truth, I would maybe favor Diaz if the fight had been at a catchweight. Because if it is a five-round, Diaz is a very durable fighter. I have seen him in a lot of trouble and he is very, very hard to finish.”
“Now it is different because it is in Anderson Silva’s weight class. Which I believe Diaz made a mistake at accepting that fight at 185 instead of, I think he should have made a catchweight would have been more fair.”
“I believe that in the early part of the fight that Silva will have an advantage. But if Diaz can survive will weather the storm, I believe he can come back strong at the end, the last part of the fight, maybe the fourth and fifth round. He’s a very durable fighter and he brings to the fight, when you fight, he’s talking to you, and he brings a different intensity that I’ve never seen before. And I felt like a little bit, you feel claustrophobic a little bit because he’s constantly pushing you forward and it’s very hard to fight a guy like him. Especially in the later rounds.”
During a recent stint on “You’re Welcome”, with Chael Sonnen, former UFC welterweight champ, Georges St-Pierre discussed January’s battle between Nick Diaz and Anderson Silva.
