Nick Diaz: GSP is a more respectable athlete, Carlos Condit is a more respectable martial artist (Video)

"I feel the same about both of them, I think they're great fighters. I think one's a more respectable athlete, one's a more respectable martial artist, stand-up fighter, I guess, if you will. Carlos versus Georges. I think Georges is a strength athlete that really stands out here. Especially against all the wrestlers he's been fighting, he's stronger than all of them. They're having a strong guy competition and he's the strongest one. I don't fight like that and neither does Carlos and I don't think these guys enjoy fighting that style of fighter."

UFC 143 headliner Nick Diaz breaks down the competition in the 170-pound weight class, specifically, his top two rivals in division titleholder Georges St. Pierre and Interim challenger Carlos Condit. The former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion recognizes greatness in both combatants, but thinks "The Natural Born Killer" is a martial artists while "Rush" is a superior athlete who overcomes his opponents with brute strength. Anyone agree with this assessment? Or not so much?
