I agree with your comments too. BJ never got knekocd down or flashed. He stood in there fatigued and unable to respond quickly enough to a bigger and well-conditioned fighter. If BJ had the conditioning routine down his whole career, he would have no doubt beat Diaz, hell, he would of beat GSP at 94 and been welterweight champ today. BJ's natural talent and energy got him this far and he had too many yes men around him telling him how wonderful he was and didn't push early in his career. He just now is understanding that all the hype about him is and has been bs. The last part that I disagree with you is about Nick Diaz. He is not thug. A thug doesn't have the discipline to train all day every day to fight and compete in triathlons (and finishing races in the top 10%). He is immature and does not have people around him that can help him grow. He comes from a background that is you don't like the people who you are against and have to fight and hasn't broke from that mindset yet. Nick is way too disciplined to be a thug. He does have an immature ego and his face showed that after the fight.Lastly, GSP's time is about up too. He keeps trying to improve and that is good, but he will now face a guy who is younger, in better shape than he is and has better all around fight skills. GSP will not be able to hold Nick down for 5 rounds and will out hit him. GSP's face will be worse than BJ's come Super Bowl night.
