Im not a melvin nuthugger. Im a fan of both of the diaz bothers and am well aware of how talented they both are on the ground. Watch the fight again. Melvin is either very ignorant on the ground (which shouldnt be the case, the dude has like fifty fights) or he gave his neck up. My little cousin could have tapped him if he gave her his neck like that. Nate is good, im not downplaying that, Melvin just quit in my opinion.

He seemed a bit tenative(sp?) to jab. I think it's because of the over hand right that he got caught with in the beginning of the first round. Nate punches look like he slaps with palms closed, and does not seemed to have a good snap to it. I'm surprised Melvin didn't slug it out more because it didn't look like Nate hits that hard.

Uh, actually he got caught with a slick sub, a gullotine is a sub and yeah he basically walked right into it.....

Face it, melvin couldnt deal with nates reach. After nate got clipped he realized that melvin doesnt even hit that hard. I saw that sub coming when they first announced the fight, but I thought it was going to be in rd 1. Like coldcall said im also dissapointed nate didnt use a his reach more and jab.

Thank you cuz I dont have the energy to break it down......

He got un cautious and he paid, plus he was attempting to pound Nate and basically gave Diaz his neck....once nate threw that leg over I jumped off the couch and was like yes sir!!!!!

He walked into that choke. Watch the fight again. He was done before this fight even went to the ground. He quit.

This makes me uncertain why you question me saying he got caught in a slick sub.......Melvin came in with his head down and got caught with a slick sub....we can agree to disagree......but c'mon...

I called it and thats it, Melvin is better than a quitter he just sucks in sub defense, I thought he was def gettin the better of the striking but Nate coulda fought that off if he established that jab....which in the second he started to......

It was a quality gullotine, but when i hear "slick sub" i think of something like a flying armbar.
