I with you on Diaz. He's not the biggest, strongest, quickest, or always overwhelmingly dominant in one skill, but he comes to the fight like there is no question that he is going to kick the other guy's ass, and he expects the other guy to know it too. Never an ounce of doubt in his mind, no matter who the opponent is. That kind of confidence and mental ability, especially in MMA, is impressive.
Anyway, to the fights. Here are some that come to mind, hope you like them.
BJ vs. Caol Uno
- BJ comes in...the bell rings... beats down Uno against the fence with punches to the face (it seemed like 20 punches in about 5 seconds).... the ref pulls him off 15 seconds into the fight... BJ throws up the peace sign and runs back to his dressing room. It was like he had somewhere else to be, so he just decided to throw a turbo beatdown on Uno. Hillarious!
Liddell vs. Mezger
- Not quite as comical as B.J., but a great stand up war to watch in Pride, in 2001. (Took place just 4 weeks after Liddell knocked out Kevin Randallman in 1 1/2 min. in the UFC)
Diaz vs. Lawler
- This was the first fight I saw of Diaz, and I was shocked... Here's this tall skinny kid, who is a BJJ fighter, calling out and taunting Robbie Lawler the whole fight. The most impressive part about was that he taunted Lawler, who had been viciously knocking guys out,while playing Lawler's game, which is stand up. An entertaining fight with one of the most unexpected knockouts Iv'e seen.
Those are some older ones that you don't see much anymore. Hope you like them.
