This is gonna be funny. Estima is far beyond Diaz' level. It's probably an exhibition...

Just so you are aware, the match is no-gi and Nick Diaz has never been submitted in a BJJ competition. (Although I can't seem to find who he has faced or any type of record)

Braulio Estima holds multiple No Gi BJJ championships so I'm not real sure that matters, Mirage.

Respect to both men for taking this fight. Props to Diaz for wanting to test an aspect of his game against one of the very best in the worls and respect to Braulio for taking a match from which he really stands to gain nothing in victory and lose a lot in defeat.

Are you sure? I have heard it's in the gi.
Braulio is one of the best and most accomplished grapplers in the world. I'm not saying that Nick has no chance but he is the huuuge underdog in this match.

Going to sound really uneducated right now but what would be the difference in a no gi or a gi match up? It's just the outfit right?

You can use the gi for different chokes/throws. In the gi sweat is not as much a factor.
