But I'm with Johnny. I don't really think Anderson should fight Jones, but if it happens, how can I complain? Like this fight, the majority wants to see it. The fans, the fighters, the training teams, the brass, everyone wants this to happen so who are the people who dont like Diaz to complain? Do you guys actually think Hendricks would beat Diaz anyways?

Back to GSP, I felt that he was a lot more open to submissions than I thought before when he faught Condit. If anyone will make him pay for that, it'd be Diaz.

Seriously, people need to relax GSP, Diaz is a great fight. The want it, GSP and DIAZ want it, so let it happen. Hendricks will surely have the winner.

I'm a huge Diaz fan, but there is no denying what is going to happen with GSPs wrestling and insane top game.

They werent "taken" from him, he left them on the table. Their is no ounce of victimizing against Diaz here.

Most wouldnt complain because its 2 of the Top 3 P4P fighters going at it, they are both champs, winners and deserved it, totally different scenario. And I dont like Hendricks but yes I do. The big flaw of Diaz is that he always goes in with a general idea of what he wants to do, he doesent go into fights with a specific gameplan for each opponent. All Hendricks needs to do is make him think a little outside of his zone, and Diaz with crumble, and then "retire" again. He is no different than Rampage, he just wants someone to fight his fight, as long as you dont do that, they fold and complain. I dont like Mayweather either, but do you think I would complain if he fought Pacman? Not really has nothing to do with like or dislike. Nick Diaz is overrated trash, UFC handing out free title fights like it was going out of style. At least Nate Diaz played the game and deserved his Title Shot. Its a travesty that he is lumped together with Nick, I dont feel any sympathy with the UFC making the same mistakes as PRIDE did before its sudden implosion. MMA organizations form and die. MMA will live on without the UFC killing itself.

The UFC makes it clearer with every passing day they don't give a tin shit about making any attempt to even look like a sport. Another joke of a fight that makes no sense unless you only care about selling tickets. **** the ******* hell off Dana, I can not tell you how much I hate the matchmaking of the UFC lately.

No it's not.

I know there's a lot of Diaz fanboys out there but get real, GSP doesn't get submitted and he's so much more athletic than Nick it's not even funny, he could probably out-strike him too.

He will probably take him down, bust him open with elbows and everyone will complain because he "lay n prayed".

What the hell's next seriously? Aldo/Edgar was at least plausible because many people think Edgar is the Lightweight Champion.

But then Chael got a title shot, and I like Chael but that's bullshit what they did to Hendo especially since Jones can't fight until April anyway, and now Diaz is getting a title shot over a guy on a five fight win streak. Dana and company better hope Bellator doesn't get big on Spike like they did or I truly think a bunch of fighters will leave, if I was Hendricks I'd leave for sure after this.

I've listened to Rampage bitch and complain for months and I thought he was just being a sore sport but honestly he's got a point, UFC is all about money and they aren't even trying to hide it now. Really hope Bellator makes it at least they treat MMA like a real sport.

BOOM. Hypocrite example alert!

As most thought Diaz was the interim champ.

And would you and others quit with the "this isn't becoming a sport". What sport? Football? They are structured none the same?

Boxing and kickboxing are some examples of other matchmaking sports. And they always do safer or bigger money fights. Or protect certain fights in boxings case. So just stop with this sport nonsense. MMA is nothing like the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL. So what sport are you comparing it too?

I seriously don't get why people want to see Diaz vs. GSP. GSP is going to control him for 5 rounds and beat him up. Does anyone actually believe Nick is going to win?

It's such a waste of a Diaz fight IMO.

I thought this "wasn't Boxing"

I thought this was "the best in the world fighting the best in the world" That's what they've said for years, well clearly it isn't. The UFC has falsely advertised it's product and lied to it's fans.

Diaz is not the interim Champ, and his fight with Condit was not nearly as close as the Henderson/Edgar fight was, he was clearly out-struck in rounds 1, 3, and 4 and his takedowns in the fifth round indicated that he was losing the fight and he knew it, you can complain about Condit running all you want, he still out-struck and still beat him. Edgar clearly won the four rounds against Henderson who did next to nothing after the first. The only reason Nick was gonna get an immediate rematch is because the UFC (obviously) wants GSP/Diaz because it'll make them money.

You're extremely obnoxious, and the only reason you're for this fight is because it's Diaz, rest assured if this was Condit or Fitch or anyone not named Nick Diaz you'd be whining about it.

Dana is going for PPV buys and nothing more with that fight, as much as I'd love to watch GSP put a beating on crybaby Diaz, Hendricks deserves the next title shot plain and simple.

A sad day.
so true. It pains me to say it but i am losing interest. I loved MMA and have been a fan since the 90s but its becoming more and more political and more and more about the money and not the sport. Silva vs Mia was when it started going downhill for me and honestly I haven't bought a PPV since they told the fighters the can't have gun companies as sponsors. All opinion about guns aside it was political BS stunt that is a burden to the fighters. I still am a fan and watch replays online and like to talk about it (and post on this forum) but i am not going to give the 60 USDs an event.

You are right. It isn't. But it isn't football, hockey, basketball, ect. to an even higher degree. All things you call "sports" and are trying to compare it too.

The rest I'm not even going to read. You are just a little punk who thinks he knows everything. On one hand Frankie's shot is sort of justified because a lot of people thought he beat Bendo. But Diaz's is not because YOU say he clearly lost. When the fact of the matter is a lot of people thought he won.

You are a hypocrite to the fullest extent. And when you get exposed as one you try to turn your opinions into facts.

A lot of people thought Frankie beat Bendo. A lot also thought Diaz beat Condit including a few current champs and a few past legends.

I can't discuss things will someone so full of themselves. According to you the fact a lot of people thought Diaz won doesn't matter because you say so. Ok..
