Gilbert Melendez knows Nick Diaz will be on his back when he fights GSP, so they’re preparing for it

Newtonian physics famously states ‘What goes up, must come down.’ Apparently this field of science did not account for the emergence of Georges St. Pierre. Under his domain, what goes down will stay down for, at the most, twenty-five minutes. After that duration, the object will be able to get up — however damaged it may be. Gilbert Melendez knows this to be true, so that’s why in preparation for UFC 158, their main focus is for Nick Diaz to fight off his back — and they’re using one of the best top-game fighters to help him: Jake Shields.

Although as we’ve seen in the past, Nick Diaz undoubtedly has the best bottom-game offense in MMA — who else could submit Takanori Gomi in Pride FC from his back? Check out this brief interview we got from the former Strikeforce lightweight champion regarding Nick Diaz vs. Georges St. Pierre going down at UFC 158.
