UFC Quick Quote: 'Georges St. Pierre will take Nick Diaz down until his back gets rug burns'

Esther Lin for MMA Fighting

According to Tyron Woodley, Nick Diaz can expect a heavy dosage of takedowns from UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre when the two meet at UFC 158 on Mar. 16, 2013. So much so, that Nick’s back will be 'burned' afterwards.

"I think GSP is going to take Diaz down until his back gets rug burns on it. I don't think Diaz can submit him and he'll lose by decision. If GSP lets Diaz get inside of his head with his antics, his taunting and entertains a striking battle that'll put Diaz in the game. He didn't entertain it with Josh Koscheck and I don't see him doing it with Diaz. I think he'll stick to the script and be the champion he's always been. He'll go out there, stick to a strict gameplan and get the win."

-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Tyron Woodley gives his thoughts on the upcoming 170-pound title fight between division kingpin Georges St. Pierre and Nick Diaz, telling BJPenn.com he expects a complete and utter -- albeit methodical -- domination from "Rush" when the two square off at UFC 158 on March 16, 2013 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. "T-Wood" says Diaz will have plenty of rug, or in this case, canvas burns from all the time he will be spending on his back. Though the Stockton slugger holds a black belt in jiu-jitsu, Woodley doesn't see Diaz submitting "GSP" once the fight eventually hits the ground. Do you agree with Woodley on this one? Or can Diaz put his crafty submission moves to good use and be the first man to submit the French-Canadian in over eight years?
