Stumbled upon this, very good interview IMO.

He'd make a good coach cuz I'm all offense. My counter is my only defense. I hate safe/defense fighters although it is part of the game.

Good interview though.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Well look no further than the Jake Shields fight if you want to see a brutally awkward display of winging overhand rights.

That and he's never thrown a punch combination in his life.

Edgar's boxing is decent, I wouldn't say it's good.

It's amateurish in root...which isn't to say it's ineffective as the amateur boxing style works rather decently in MMA.


Agree with the others.

Nate is good but i'm not sold on Nick. He relies on his chin far too much to be considered a top boxer.

Great interview. I like that more and more boxers get hired by fighters and I like that more and more of them know and watch MMA.

I'm not sure if any boxing coach would say the Diaz brothers have good boxing. They have awkward boxing that works very well for them.

Agreed he is a sucker for uppercuts so for his sake he better he's fixed that or aldo doesn't find out. And rauno the diaz bro's boxing is the best offensive boxing style in my opinion seeing how it is a great way to constantly land and wear opponents down quick, I think nick is way better than nate at everything including BJJ and boxing nick just doesn;t care to be hit because his chin is so good. It brought me endless joy seeing marquez KO pac and showing why marquez should have got the nod on 3/4 fights.

Yeah, the Diaz bros have an awkward style. They may be the only ppl in the MMA game that can make that work. I'm not sure how professional boxers would rank them though. They mostly rely on cardio and chin to put together those combos and punches.
