Especially if they rematch and Diaz beats him.
There's nothing 'wrong' with it. But it won't make you a popular fighter. And once you guys realize this isn't really a sport, it's entertainment, you'll understand.
If it was a sport, Chael Sonnen wouldn't be fighting Jones for the LHW title.
Imagine if last year David Stern announced that Kobe and the Lakers would be getting to play Lebron and the Heat for the championship because he said so and it was the match up the fans really wanted.
Chael Sonnen is a point fighter.
GSP's also regarded as a point fighter and he's the biggest draw in MMA now that Brock has left us.
Basically, you CAN be a point fighter if you have charisma, which both guys do. Chael Sonnen has the largest arms and the most charm and GSP has riddum. Kinda like Floyd Mayweather who is the King of PPV, it's all about charisma.
