You're fully entitled to your misinformed opinion.
He doesnt show great head movement. He doesnt show great foot work. He doesnt show great technical and crisp punches. He doesnt show great power.
Which means he has "Okay" boxing.
What he does show and he does this really well is use his reach and is able to throw weak punches in bunches without the opponent getting much of a chance to retaliate.
Which works fine against alot of opponents. But for instance BJ Penn is someone who ACTUALLY has great boxing and while BJ was fresh he was able to use his superior boxing and get the better of Diaz. Then BJ gassed and Nick was able to do what he does best.
But hey if you want to pretend that Nick Diaz shows "great" boxing then that is fine.
Lets say i agreed that he does have great boxing... what then???
He still cant outstrike Anderson Silva with it..
So the point of our discussion does not change one bit whether i agree with you or disagree with you about Diaz.
Anyway i guess since you backed out of a discussion because i disagreed with you there was no point in me making this post. Il see ya around Retarded.
(I kid i kid)
I wouldn't say Diaz at 180 would be significantly smaller then Silva.
Well you would definitely be wrong then. Rich Franklin who is a big and strong MW got tossed around by Anderson. What in the world could Diaz do???? Diaz going up to 180 is still going to be signicantly smaller then Anderson going DOWN to 180. Since these guys put on between 20-40 pounds after the weigh ins. Diaz would stay around 180 while Anderson would be 200+
