Diaz lost a fan tonight.
 
I'll always enjoy watching him fight but after tonight I'm definitely hoping he'll get his ass beat. The dude just needs to show a spec of humility. I can accept that he won that fight even though I had Noons 3/2 but it was close. he should give his opponent a little respect. Am i the only one who thought Noons won the first round?

Sorry I stopped reading and caring after " Am i the only one who thought Noons won the first round?"

just re-watched it and I think it was a toss-up. Diaz got a takedown but I think he was too stunned from the right hook he ate to capitalized. Noons landed some of the best shots of the round in the last five seconds when Diaz was clowning (stolen). Diaz definitely didn't have anything spectacular in the first.

In Nicks defense he did say "no disrespect, the fight's over" "I went to take him down because I wanted to finish the fight and show the world what I was capable of"

And due to the fact that the entire MMA world basically said "if Nick doesn't take him down he's getting KTFO" it came as a surprise that he was able to hang in there with the professional boxer and go toe to toe like that... he' did no name calling, he just expressed himself out of exhilleration for exorcising his Noons demons... it happens.

That was the last sentence of his post..... so you really had no choice. :confused:

^^^LOL!


Let's not forget this is the same Noons who said Nick didn't deserve a rematch, and eventually had his title stripped because he refused to fight Nick again after that lame cut stoppage. Well, now we all see exactly how KJ does against Nick without doctors calling the fight for him. Nick showed more than enough respect imo.

I gave it Rounds 2,4 and 5 to Noons.
It was a close fight, so I can see that Diaz took it.

BTW, could the announce team be any more biased? Silent during Noons runs, practically climaxing during Diaz runs.

You know Frank wanted to see Diaz win... it gives him more credit in his loss to Diaz.

Absolutely. He is a Shamrock, after all. They only lose to the best of the best.

gotta be honest, watching the fight, i thought Diaz won.


After seeing the numbers of the fight... whoa....


i thought KJ lacked alot of technique in his punches and let Diaz dictate the pace for too long and get in a sloppy exchange war which is his forte.

KJ should have stepped back more, reloaded and setup his punches.


But still, those numbers are very lobsided and its not like Diaz throws power to even them out, he just throws most of the time for the sake of throwing it seems lol even kicks.
