Diaz wins even if he doesn't win.

He has a huge fanbase and a huge section of MMA fans who get all riled up over his actions. As seen with Sonnen, that means $$$$$$, when you have a huge following of fans and people that want to see you fail.

In the end Diaz gets the laugh. He doesn't even have to say anything and he gets more publicity than many of the champions. He can sit back and not do a thing and people who dislike him will talk about him for months on end.

Fans and haters together. I think MMA fans are most obsessed with Nick Diaz out of any MMA fighter out there. And that mean big paydays. That means Dana will give him big fights. Because even the people who hate him, CARE about what he is up too.

He's got the public hooked like a fish.
-----------------

As for will GSP get a finish? No he wouldn't in a million years. Only possible way is if Diaz gets a bad cut, which could happen because he does have bad scar tissue and GSP will work elbows from top. But as far as a KO, sub, or ref stoppage...or a cheesy BJ Penn give up? Don't count on it. Diaz is one of the hardest fighters to finish in all of MMA and has the cardio to last. He may get beat, but he has too much pride to be finished.

GSP has ZERO chance of a finish other than cuts. GSP doesn't finish. Lets not go through this every fight of "I think GSP finishes this one". Because no one that says that every event is ever right. He was real aggressive in the Condit fight compared to fights before...and Condit was never in real danger of getting finished.

Diaz has a better guard than Condit, I can tell you that. I hope GSP goes for the finish, and that is probably exactly what Diaz is trying to get GSP to do. The more he goes for it, the more chance Diaz has of winning. GSP most likely wins, but no chance of a finish other than a wicked cut.

Lets save the 13 pager for when Diaz actually misses this presser. He is off training for the biggest fight of his life. He has no time to text up Dana White's goofy ass.

The mods have been notified of your behavior and that's that.
brb calling another poster out on acting like an asshole
brb acting like an asshole in 90 percent of posts
brb exposing myself as a lying hypocrite

Do you actually ever re-read over your own posts? Seriously champ, just hit that view more posts option on your own profile and have a good browse. You act negatively and abrasively in pretty much all of your posts. I acknowledge that I can be a real **** at times, I just embrace it. You seem to be oblivious to how you actually post yourself. More evidence of narcissistic behaviour.

Also, keep crying to the mods. You'll not get rid of me that easily sport.

Also me clowning you in the Cain/JDS discussion had to really sting, I don't think I've seen a post from you since the fight happened actually acknowledging that you were wrong and giving credit to Cains performance. You can just never be wrong can you Deadman.

C'mon mate, every one says that about all of Diaz' opponents. "well, but if he didn't gas, then he would have messed Diaz up!". No one has ever put a boxing clinic on BJ the way Diaz did in that fight, and whether you're a fan or not, that at least deserves some respect. What he did to BJ was damn impressive. He literally boxed BJ up all over the octagon.

Yeah he landed a few very solid kicks but it was the boxing that really ****ed with BJ in that fight. His left hooks to the liver were a thing of pure beauty, Bas would have been stroking it mid fight.

I can't remember the fight too well, need to rewatch. I thought it was one of the body kicks that almost buckled BJ though.

It all started with a left kick to the body. Rory's boxing did a lot of damage after the fact, but Rory always started everything with kick boxing. He landed some serious brazilian kicks, a hard counter elbow which wobbled BJ and a big kick to the body which was what first buckled him against the fence. Rory's boxing was sick in the fight, his hooks were real tight and he got to BJ a few times, his jab looked great too.
