“I think he’s going to approach this fight somewhat like the BJ Penn fight. I think he’ll try to fight Nick the same way where he’ll tie up with him, try to keep him up against the cage, do a little dirty boxing and try to get him arm weary, maybe get some takedowns and see how that goes. He’ll probably be cautious from the top position but try to inflict damage depending on how it’s going.”
Cesar Gracie, Nick Diaz's trainer and manager, tells Full Contact Fighter that he thinks Georges St. Pierre is planning on fighting Diaz in a similar fashion to how he defeated B.J. Penn in their UFC 94 meeting in January 2009. Touch of gloves to MMA Mania for the find.
