[QUOTE=Toxic;2156353]5 rounds? Bums like Cyborg Santos an Paul Daley have exploited nicks shite defense you think AS couldn't do it?
AS drops his hands and uses movement to avoid punches Nick drops his hands and uses his face to hurt his opponents hands, might not go well against one of the most powerful and precise strikers to ever step in the cage. QUOTE]

I agree 100% Diaz would get crushed by Anderson. I think Diaz is fun to watch fight, but I truly don't think he is as talented of an MMA fighter as people give him credit for. He may be able to box and use BJJ, but his game planning is crap and those who use a game plan against him seem to win handily. But who can blame him if he does lobby for this fight, it would be a big payday for him and no one would really expect him to win so there would be very little pressure in that regard.

Basically Anderson knows he can beat Diaz and they both like to taunt...therefore as an exhibition match I think Anderson would continuously allow Diaz to get back up after a knockdown for the full five rounds "if" Diaz could make it just to prove who the better boxer is. If Anderson utilizes his Muay Thai and full arsenal...well forget about it.

Anderson probably will disregard his kicks and both would just utilize boxing and go a full five rounds. Only danger is if Anderson decides to play around in the guard and gets submitted...unlikely, but it can happen.

Otherwise if Anderson utilized his muay thai...he would chop his legs worse than Aldo vs Faber. Anderson is far taller than Aldo thus his kicks are that much more powerful if he decided to go with that fully.

Everyone to Twitter now! What a fun matchup!
Fighting someone you have no business fighting, who is infinitely more talented than you, and you have no chance of hurting isn't crazy, its stupid. Diaz isn't crazy like hes some fight hungry tough guy, hes just a moron. Diaz gets run through in the first round. Unless Anderson plays fool again and just taunts.

Two fighters slapping themselves in the face yelling "come on" for 5 rounds? No thanks. Can't imagine how the judges would score that one ... would the person who slapped themselves most win on points? ... I'd be praying for a quick self-knockout 2 minutes into the first round.
