Dude, you get SO offended when people say anything negative about the Diaz brothers. What exactly is your attachment to them? I understand you like them as fighters and their whole "JUST BLEED" style, I really do, but you should understand with their behavior and antics that people aren't going to like them, fan or not.
As everyone on here probably knows, I loathe the Diaz brothers. But after thinking about it, I'm kind of split on them being gone from the UFC. On one hand if they continue to act like children, they shouldn't be bringing the UFC down and the company should cut its losses. However, both Nick and Nate are solid top five level talent in their respective divisions. Nick has a plethora of interesting matchups at 170. Nate has some interesting matchups to be made as well. I'd be particularly interested in seeing him fight TJ Grant.
I'll never really understand why people are Diaz fans, but I will always recognize that they are legitimate elite talent and it would be a shame to have talent like that go to another organization. Nate could fight Chandler and Alvarez but after that what's left for him? Top guys should always fight top guys, IMO.
The UFC will do just fine with them gone though.
They're both pretty decent draws, but I think people overestimate their drawing power.
You are really going to get th thread closed for us. But what does just bleed mean? Diaz bros are martial artists who are BJJ orientated. What is this "just bleed" thing you label them or me? My attatchment is they are some of the realest out there. They love to get down and scrap. They will put on great fights displaying good hands, great cardio, great BJJ. They are real fun to watch. That is my attachment to them. I love their style.
I understand people aren't going to like them. I'm not asking for people to send apology letters to them. I just want to know why in evey single Diaz thread we need to hear the same people, saying the same things. Some posters can't help but click on the thread to let us know that their speech is off. I mean CANT HELP themselves.
I don't see talent leaving as a shame. The UFC is a mess right now. Who is to say Bellator can't build itself up a bit into a SF caliber company? They do have 2 top 5 LWs. And I'd love to watch Nate fight both a couple times. I don't see what he is doing in the UFC that is so much better than fighting 2 top 5, entertaining guys? Those would be wild fights.
Having a single organization in the sport is bad for the sport and its fighters. What Gil was able to do was beautiful. Without Bellator he can't do what he did.
UFC won't fall apart if they lose a Diaz bro. But Bellator would gain big time. Nate draws so much buzz outside of the fight numbers. He says one tweet and we get a 10 pager going on here. It is top story on many websites. Diaz Bros are drawing power. And guys you can count on in giving big time fights/performances. They show up and entertain. He would be amazing for Bellator.
