But to answer your question, a lot of fighters actually graduated college and are very smart so i'm sure alot of them actually could solve some pretty hard math problems .

You know what, the more I think about this match-up, the more I want to see it. Now I have no doubt in my mind the Silva would win. But I'm just interested in seeing someone have the balls to flip off Anderson Silva. Then, I want to see how Silva actually reacts.

Wasnt the whole Chael Sonnen thing not enough?

Anyway...i wouldnt mind watching Diaz take a loss that he cant complain about - i really like him, but post fight bitching is fukin annoying.

I think he means with Nicks in ring antics, the taunting and stuff. I would love to see how Anderson would react to Nick giving him the finger in the middle of the octagon, ha ha.

A level of fitness oriented for a specific heart beat rate range throughout a specific exercice. To prepare to one thing has zero to do with preparing to another. I assure you Nick does not rely solely in his triathlon training to go in the octagon, thus the comparison is up.

Some could say being a good math problem solver would help your strategy in a fight, increasing the ability to find answers for your opponent's skills and overcome your own weakness along the bout.

Oh, absolutely. And do some triathlon as well if they were fond of it.

It wasn't me criticizing his work ethic meaning his preparation, but I would say he has some non ethic attitude in the sport. Any high level athlete of any area can deplete his stamina to "minus zero" in less than 10 minutes if working his heart out of the range he is used to train.
PS: It could be way less than 10 minutes, actually...

Just admit it was a real dumb comparison. One has to do a lot with cardio (evident when Diaz has some of the best if not the best cardio in MMA). And Math problems? I mean it was a terrible comparision.

No one here said he solely relies on triathlons.

The math problems thing was for fun, but the triathlon comparison is more than relevant matter. It was suggested Nick is a hard training guy using the triathlon example. I wrote enough up there for those who understand a minimum amount of cardio preparation to get it. If you still think that is dumb, so don't bother. That's not the post for you.

I would love to see this fight. It wouldn't be competitive, not even for a second, but it'd be fun to see Nick get finished in devastating fashion. I just know that during the 60 to 90 second traditional Silva feeling out period in the first, Nick would get pissy about how he can't catch or hit Silva. Nick would talk shit, then give Silva the finger, then, if he's still conscious, open his arms up to wave Silva in to fight him. If he's still alive after flipping Silva off, the second he pulls his hands from his jaw to taunt Silva, he would be yet another highlight reel KO for Silva. This fight would be nothing more than Silva putting on a show, a short, uncompetitive but entertaining show. Silva finishes by Reverse Elbow, again, or some never before seen Capoeira spinning, rolling, flip kick.

Do not agree with the bolded part. Do agree with the other part though. Stamina isn't stamina. There are different types. A marathon runner would gas within minutes of being in a MMA cage. I'm not saying doing triathlons doesn't help at all with cardio but if the Diaz brothers conditioning program consisted primarily of trithlons they would gas quite easily and quickly.

This isn't something I've just come up with . I buy Fighters Only magazine every month and there was an article in the training session about conditioning. The dude said that the only thing long distance running is good for is long distance running.
