Still doesn't erase the fact he jumped a guy in the cage after a fight, got into a fight at the hospital, and talked shit about Georges for no reason.

Do people even pay to watch this stuff? Not hating on it, just curious.

Good on you, Nick, but you're still a douchebag.

I might actually order this though. I haven't watched a good high level grappling competition in a while and Kyra Gracie is on the card.

And is it wrong that I'd like to see a Gina Carrano and Kyra Gracie bjj match? Perhaps under Ultimate Surrender rules?

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

I would be interested in seeing this card but I don't know anything about BJJ matches. Can somebody quickly explain the basic scoring and how BJJ matches work? +Rep for the first who does, thanks.

Exactly, its a nice gesture, and that is all because his purse is probably going to be next to nothing.

I doubt there's much money in this purse anyway, seeing as it's a brand new promotion and all.

That said... It's still money going towards treating sick children. I'm very much a Diaz hater, I think he's an overgrown child. but he deserves credit for this.
