oh so you diaz had a few good moments in the 5 rounds, that completely disproves the idea that it was actually a close fight.

/sarcasm

He's really not some amazing striking god folks. can't wait until someone reminds the world of this.

(haven't even mentioned condit, or the fact that he wasn't able to do anything against GSP at all--even when it was standing)
It was a boxing match with 4 ounce gloves against a fighter who is arguably a better boxer.

Diaz fought with a terrible gameplan and still won, lol.

To be fair, Hendricks isn't half the striker Noons is.

Rumble would fail to make weight.

Just like you failed at this post.

I was at that right live but never watched it on video afterwards. I seem to remember Diaz handling KJ pretty easily in the early going and then not really pressing afterwards.

I don't remember the fight being that close, maybe I have to watch it again. I seem to remember the number of strikes being fairly close, but Diaz landed by far the more significant strikes.

Yes Diaz may get the fight because of the KO he has over Lawler many years ago but he has done nothing to deserve a fight with Robbie. Lawler is tearing it up and has been beating top fighters which is more than you can say for Diaz. I think Lawler will beat the piss out of Nick and I hope we get to see the re-match.


Nick has done nothing to deserve a fight with a guy of Robbie's caliber. I'm not trying to be an ass but Diaz needs to prove he belongs with the best and that is what Robbie is.


GSP
Hendrick's
Lawler

Nick Diaz fans forget every moment of every fight in which Nick looks as average as he actually is.
