I know he isn't the most popular guy on these forums, but i was impressed with his WW debut. Markham probably weighed 190lbs and Diaz handled him easily. Nate looked like a young Nick imo, i think he'll be more of a force at 170 then at 155.

Thoughts?

Yeah, looks like 170 is a much better fit for him.

He looked strong, and he dominated. What else is there to say really? :p

I was very impressed, but in his post fight interview, he talked about heading back down to 155.

Couldn't quite figure that one out. You can tell he has more power in his punches at 170... why take a step back?

In the post fight he said he wouldn't mind fighting at both weight classes if it means he can fight more. I like the his style and "i wanna fight" attitude.

Looking good at 170. I hope he keeps these wins comeing. :thumb02:

Diaz/Rumble if Nate decides to stay at WW.

Would be cool.

It was noisy where i was so i didn't hear him say that, but it disappoints me that he said it. If he could put on 6-8 lbs of muscle, and improve his boxing then 170 would be perfect for him.

That fight was strange. Nick looked like a skinny little runt who should have gotten stomped on. Instead, a stoned? markham threw the fight away!
Gotta disagree with that. Skill beat strength once again.

That would be a harsh fight to give Nate as a second at 170, Rumble is easily one of if not the biggest 170 pounder in the UFC.

With the way Rory looked at the weigh ins I did NOT expect that lopsided of a win by Diaz...hahah. What the hell. I almost spit out my food when Joe Rogan described the Diaz' brothers method of punches in bunches..."they're not 100% but they're like bang bang bang"...roflz!!!

Man I really wanna see this match now lol



Was Diaz that impressive? 'Cause I see Rumble destroying Diaz.
I don't see this fight happening yet, Diaz needs to really put some muscle on before this fight happens. Rumble is waaay to big and strong for Diaz atm.

Nate looked great. He had more power on his punches, and still looked quick. Rory, on the other hand, loooked like total crap. I would be embarrassed to call myself a Golden Gloves Boxer after that performance.
Are you the one with the half Fedor/Terminator image. I forget...anyways saw this on another site...lolz!

Yah Rory almost cost me a shit load of money. I was going to place a huge bet on him. He was +240 against Nate Diaz. He didn't take Nate seriously and got countered left and right.

he looked much better and when he puched, the opponent actually tried to get out of the way because they hurt.he already has the ground game and good standup. it looks like he has the power to deliver now.WW is getting deeper and deeper all the time.

wow. Was not expecting this at all, really impressed by diaz at WW. He should stay there, he definitely has the power in his striking. I cant help but sort of become a fan of the diaz bro's, i love their attitude towards fights and fighting.

Diaz had ridiculous distance sense last night too. Rory threw 2 head kicks that cam about an inch from Diaz's face and Diaz knew he was out of it. It was slick.
