Apart from Diaz fans no one should care , he wasnt going to be champion and he would lost convincingly to guys like Kos , Fitch and GSP. I would even go as far to say Alves would Penn beat him.


The guy is Talented but his head aint in MMA , i have no time for people who say things like this

"I don’t see much of a future in this sport for me. I’m signed into a contract I don’t know anything about. All I know is my life is a living Hell full of training… I cater to everybody else."
He is also a very vile person and will not be missed , i sincerely hope he puts a good showing in his Boxing match so he doesnt embarrass the sport.

Anyway, on Diaz, he won't make more money doing boxing or anything else. He's deluded.
well if he fights fernado vargas he will get pay millions. Vargas was like jones, fell hard and is now on a comeback.

I care, not to watch them if possible. That's just my opinion though. A good ground battle, NOTHING is better. A wrestler holding top position...Fitch, Maynard types, i'll go watch Golf.



On a side note relating to general skills for protecting yourself in a fight (which bjj was made for, along with boxing), Im pretty convinced wrestling will just get you in serious trouble in most fights, that's why I despise it.

Yea great, you can pin someone on the ground, what about when their friend shows up and soccer kicks you in the face. Wrestling is a points fight only skill to me, bjj is built for quick fight ending submissions, which makes it different. If i'm out of line, let me know what you think.

I mean, Rashad gets paid 400,000 and I don't even know why.
Because he is the number 2/3 LHW in the world he is a house hold name in the UFC because of TUF and the former champion.


Do i really need to say more.......

he is a diaz, when u look up the word hate in a dictionary u see him and his brother pic next to it. With the Ko of paul d daiz has now enter elite level. Not by winning but by the way it happen. I love anderson silva but diaz is literally the baddest man in mma. U gotta have balls to tell someone to they hit like a bitch constantly in the ring, then getting drop and coming back and winning the fight with ur hands rather than his strength his jujitsu..

Vargas is really nobody. The only time he made over a million dollars was with super cash cow Oscar, and it wasn't much more than that.

Not only that, but there's no way Diaz will be getting anything close to 50/50 split if he fights a big name. And in any case, neither fighter will be getting a cut of the PPV, assuming it even makes it on PPV. Quite frankly I'd imagine this being on an HBO or Showtime card at best, ESPN Friday Night Fights at the worst.

People see what guys like Tyson and Mayweather are making and assume that boxers are just making huge amounts of money.


Not the case...but as Uncle Roger said "Most people don't know shit about boxing!"

They can promote that fight like mad.... MMA vs Boxing. He'll definitely get more than any mma fight he's had to date otherwise he wouldn't agree to it, that's for sure.

Vargas has lost his last 3 fights bro 2 were stoppages he is 33 and hasnt beaten anyone RELVANT in 10 YEARS ! every Elite fighter he has faced he has lost to Mosley , Oscar De la hoya , Mayorga and Trinidad. Infact his best win is probably winky Wright back in 1999 for Christ sake !


Hardcore boxing fans will not be clamouring to pay for this , Atleast Toney Vs Couture had 2 absolute legends, Vargas isnt one and never will be and neither is Diaz and never will be.
