Anderson would be doing the taunting and it would send Diaz mad. If you had to pick a fighter for Silva to look great again you would pick a wide open pressure fighter who leaves a bunch of counter opportunities.

I can pretty much see Anderson going all Chris Leben on Diaz, who probably wouldn't even have the time and leisure to taunt at all.

I can see also GSP BJPenning Diaz by making him quit on the stool in between rounds, out of sheer frustration

GSP wants to humiliate diaz, and humiliation is basically the way he fights. He already had a full camp prepping for Diaz (or at least half a camp), he wants this fight. it wouldn't be fair to hendricks but GSP/Diaz is the fight I want to see

Andy/Diaz, same result, but with a finish, probably in the 1st

Both would probably end up with Diaz retiring and getting busted for pot one more time.

Diaz is an extremely talented fighter, but he doesn't have his head together.

All the time he's doing his things, smoking, rant videos and whatnot, he's not training. He's not Andy-talented either but he may be GSP-talented, only with a shitty work ethic and child-like motivation.

Sorry cant agree with you there. The diaz bro's are probably 2 of the top most well prepared, as far as training goes, as there are. These guys do triathlons (which is a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride, and a 13.1 mile run)... I mean seriously, how many other fighters in the UFC could do those? MAYBE gsp and condit? (Now diaz did place 36/292 in the 2011 donner lake triathlon, but 13 of the people that finished above him were 40+ years old and diaz wasnt even ranked last year.. But He still did it. )

Sure, he could be training instead of smoking weed or making videos, but you could say that about anybody. GSP and Silva could be training instead of making commercials. My point is, everyone that is a fighter does things instead of training. Who and what they do, varies for each fighter. And just because you don't agree with what diaz does in his free time (albeit something not allowed in the sport), does not mean he has "Shitty work ethic".


I'm not even a diaz "fan", i'm just sayin bro.

Well that's just quite clearly a load of nonsense. Diaz is one of the most conditioned, hardest trained athletes in the sport.

Smoking? Are fighters supposed to literally train 24/7 at all times, without spending any personal time to them selves? Rant videos? What are you even talking about?

@cdtpcl, thanks, will rep when I can.

I am a well known Nick Diaz disliker, but I would never refer to him having a shitty work ethic and child like motivation. From other fighter interviews it is apparent that Nick Diaz's #1 motivation in life is training, #2 is weed. Nick is apparently always in the gym, always rolling or sparing with people, and always in ridiculous shape. I don't think I have ever heard the phrase "out of shape Diaz". One of the real benefits of his training style is that he doesn't try to fight when he has peaked like most camps, instead he stays in the same relative shape so he can fight on a moments notice.

Diaz has a shitty attitude, he has a shitty outlook on rules, and he has a shitty vocabulary. A shitty work ethic? No, never.

No need man, I should have included it in my OP rather than assume everyone had read it.

I agree. Diaz is always in peak shape. Everything you mentioned plus competing in triathlons in his off time is pretty much proof. And he is definitely always in shape and keeps a very good pace in his fights.

Rich Franklin can solve some really hard math problems. How many other fighters in the UFC could do that?
Just pointing that triathlon is triathlon, MMA is MMA.
That being said, sure Nick trains enough MMA to aways show up in shape and technically sound, plus he has that shitty attitude peculiar to him.

Bad comparison. We all know a triathlon is not MMA but it does require a high level of fitness. Completing math problems? Not so much. Cardio vascular training has a lot more to do with MMA than math.

Congrats! You are now the board idiot.

Not sure if your opinion counted before, but now it officially doesn't!
