Again, can you please stop referring to your opinion as fact. Please just stop. Your opinion is not fact. The sooner you learn that the better.
You started off by insulting 21 members on this board by calling them all retards:
That's 21 people who picked Daley to beat Diaz on here, or 21 "retards" as you'd happily label them.
Diaz uses pressure boxing, not simply "walking forwards and just throwing punches" as you describe it. If simply walking forwards and throwing punches was such an effective tool to use, then surely more fighters would have so much success with it like Diaz has, no?
Diaz doesn't just walk forward and throw punches. He cuts off the cage and uses his height and reach to stifle his opponents and force them backwards.
He also doesn't throw just flurries:
Nick uses a variation or a combination of different punches in the above gif. Straights, hooks, uppercuts, level changes... A combination of different strikes.
When was the last time his taunting was effective against A level talent? BJ Penn? It seemed to work pretty effectively in that fight.
"Decent body shots". His body shots are excellent, not decent.
Stop calling people retards for expressing their opinion with thought out reasoning and try and acknowledge that other people have different viewpoints.
Is Nick likely to beat Anderson? No. But I believe he has a much better chance than most other current MW contenders and believe it would make for a thoroughly entertaining fight because of all of the previous reasons I have stated in this thread.
If you disagree with this, that's fine, but don't start presenting your opinion as fact again, thank you.
