The sanchez fight in particular ws a varitable jits demo. The perfect example, in my opinion, in judges needing to learn the jits game before judging MMA.

They were hittin switches all fight long, it was absolutely wicked from a grappling standpoint. One of the best UFC fights ever, imo. I too thought that Diaz won it handidly.

I don't dissagree, that fighting off his back has cost him points, but i think that's a judging issue rather than a fighting issue. Judges need to learn more about the jits game, still. I'd love to see Diaz in some no-time-limit fights like Pride threw in the old days. That is a format that Nick would kill at.

Yeah Diaz has really been screwed by the scoring system.

It's not an act for either of them. They are who they are, and I respect that.

I like both of em. No problem with Nick's outspokenness on smoking pot whatsoever. I feel they are very genuine and they generally say what they mean and they talk shit fully intending to back it up.

no



I would much rather appreciate the fighting prowess of the Diaz brothers then watching these lil cupcake image fighters with their painted toe nails, over the top tattooing and fruit cup hair cuts.

I like them, especially nate.

Nick should just shut up about pot, he's not smart enough to articulate his theories. Other then that I like him too.

They're just being morons. Sincerity has nothing to do with the inability to distinguish between a real fight and one's job. Both of the brothers are like that, and it makes me sick. So, I'd have to go with the OP on this one and say that I've just never really liked either of them.
