This is what I like about Nick Diaz:

1. He's here for a good reason. Almost all of his interviews involve him saying that he's trying to make money to get his mom some financial help. Gotta love that.
2. I love the way he fakes his opponents out.
3. He seems very emotionally driven which can be dangerous but always is entertaining.
4. He comes across as a real guy not some washed up fake ass.
5. Hi cockiness is at a perfect level. Some people are just way too cocky. Almost anybody who can fight professionally deserves to be cocky to an extent in my book.

All in all. Whoever Nick fights I'm gonna be pulling for him. He's been around and hopefully improves. I think he deserves some wins. So hopefully he's got his head on straight and can make something happen

If he fights his next opponent the way he fought Josh Neer in UFC 62 he'll put himself in contention.

Matt Hughes vs GSP

GSP will stuff his take downs over and over and beat Hughes with his stand up.

GSP Unanimous decision.

Tim Sylvia vs Jeff Monson

Monson will get this to the ground. Short fight from there.

Monson submission in the 2nd.

Brandon Vera vs Frank Mir

Mir Just looked too out of shape in his last fight. I don't see how he could has conditioned that quick.

Vera TKO by clinch and knees.

Alessio Sakara vs Wilson Gouveia

Not really sure I care about this fight, I hope it's a good one but I don't know either enough to call.

Nick Diaz vs Gleison Tibau

Like everyone else on here I want to see Diaz back in full swing.

Diaz in the 3rd TKO.

Brad Imes vs Antoni Hardonk

The only reason I'm picking Imes is that Dana had this man on the show and he wants to get some of his investment back.

Imes by decision.

James Irvin vs Hector Ramirez

Do you think Irvin can land a flying knee again? Me either.

Ramirez in the 3rd. GnP Stoppage.

I normally wouldn't see this fight going 5 full rounds, but seeing how Hughes survived a vicious onslaught by Penn, I see him surviving Georges offense. GSP won't make the same stupid mistake again.

Tim Sylvia vs Jeff Monson.

Sylvia by second round KO.

Yea, so I'm giving Monson the benefit of the doubt. He'll get battered throughout the first, and finally be put to sleep by Big Tim. I like Monson, but the reach is just way too much here.

Brandon Vera vs Frank Mir.

Vera by TKO second round.

Mir will gas. Vera will capitalize.

Alessio Sakara vs Wilson Gouviea.

Sakara by unanimous decision.

Gouviea will fade away as the rounds go by. I seriously don't care about either guy, but I see Sakara pulling off the D.

Nick Diaz vs Graison Tibau.

Nick Diaz by TKO round 3.

Diaz is a guy who is not afraid to oppose his will. He uses his reach to his advantage, and is great on the ground. I see Tibau being overwhelmed in the third.

Brad Imes vs Antoni Hardonk.

I seriously don't care.

Ditto for the James Irvin fight.
thanks damone you saved me a bunch of writing..ditto

I have to say I was wondering when we were going to see Diaz again with all these ufc tv new comers over whelming the fight cards and not some of our most awesome talent like Diaz.Although I do disagree there were some fights I didn't want to replay I can't remember who they were with but I have seen some (1 or 2) slow fights.Diaz has some amazing sub from the ground his flexibility is unbelievable.I am excited to see him fight.

I think GSP will get the belt and I'm not sure Monson is the one to take Silvia's.Tim has been improving although his last fight I thought sucked he didn't look like a champ.Matt I think should have never been given the title I felt he passed out that's why he fell to the ground.Matt has also had some very close fights and just barely caught the wins.I guess a win is a win though.my picks are
St. Pierre
Silvia
Vera ( only because I'm not sure about Mirr yet)
Sakara (I think he brigs alot more than we saw with Lister)
Diaz
and maybe Imes
