    There would never be a 20 minute round unless it was in an unsanctioned country, but if there was a 20 minute round Joe Rogan feels that Nick Diaz would be unbeatable under those circumstances .

    Do you agree with that?

    I don't know about, but maybe it's a fair point because he does seem to have unending cardio and does s**t like swim to alcatrez and do triathlons for fun. pretty ridiculous stuff. I also recall him hitting the speed bag hard for like 23 minutes straight and not looking too stressed or tired afterwards. dude has some serious cardio. But is Rogan exaggerating a bit here?

    Way back when he fought Diego Sanchez it seemed like both guys could have kept that tremendous pace for hours. With unlimited time, I still would have taken Diego I think.

    I do think definitely think that 5 5 minute rounds is a very different thing than 1 25 minute round, but Diaz isn't the dude to put your bank on.

    i've never seen him look at the clock as much as he did against nick. he was looking for a breather. imagine him not getting a minute off between rounds.

    Too bad he wouldn't last 20 min in the cage with someone like... Anderson Silva.

    He looks at the clock because he was in a 5 round fight. The dynamics of a 20 minute round are much different. In any event, Diaz didn't mount any kind of offence in that fight, so I have no reason to believe that he would do any better in a 20 minute round.

    There's no reason to pick apart Joe's exaggerations, he's just making the point that Nick has great cardio and using the hyperbole to present it. It's funny that people post it on forums and analyze it when it's just an off hand way of making a point.

    Kind of like when you say, "Dude I'm fucking starving" and there's that occasional D-Bag who has to be like "Nuh-uh dude, you've never 'starved' before, that means you're dying".

    Right now we're all being that D-Bag. Sweet.
