Neither fighter looked experienced or skilled. Diaz has some pretty good ground game but he won on determination and consistency. Emerson played a defensive fight which is why he lost.

Iím surprised that these are supposedly the better fighters on the show.
Please tell me this isnít the best talent they could find.

I knew Diaz would be skilled on the ground, but his stand-up left me wondering if he's ever actually trained with his brother. Given the fact that he was majorly hyped as a skilled fighter with a similar style to his brothers, I'd say he was a disappointment. Still, that doesn't mean that he can't turn it around in the semi-finals. I hope he and Lauzon hook up for the finals.

If I was fighting Diaz and he stuck his arm out like that to me I would grab it and break it. It's really not that hard to do, but I don't know if it's legal in the UFC to manipulate the other guys wrist or elbow. But, if it was me I would have grabbed it and twisted it, pulled him forward and punched him in the throat.

hit2hurt has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I liked it.

I liked it. Nate countered really well, and showed he's a really creative fighter. He's a young guy and proved he's got skills and belongs on the show, that's saying something. Then again, being from the Bay Area and being associated with a lot of Gracie Fighters, I'm biased. I was just happy to see Nate Diaz do so well.

Nate's problem is that he has the Aleksander Emelianenko syndrome. He's solid, but fans will never think he's better than his big brother. Nate threw some incredibly shitty punches, but atleast he pushed the pace, and showed some nice ground skillz~!

I want to see Manny vs Nate. It can be like a low rate Karo vs Nick Diaz fight. Both guys are scrappy as hell, so it'd rule. Manny can bring the judo goodness, and Nate can bring the insanity. Wait, Manny can bring the insanity as well.

When they were rolling around on the ground towards the end of the fight it reminded me a lot of a cheap low rate version of Karo vs. Nick.

Yea I dunno what all the guff was about that being the best fight ever on TuF, it wasnt that great.

Emerson looked like he was afraid in the first round they both landed some good ones.

I'm kinda surprised Nate wasnt as gas'd as Emerson was, he was trying takedown after takedown and getting nowhere.
