I think Diaz vs Lawler 2 comes down to whether Nick Diaz still can take the shots or recover from it. Most fighters tend to lose their abilities as they age, but I happen to think Diaz has exact style to be pretty good even as he ages. I know people have been talking about how out of shape Diaz looks, but just because someone's not muscular doesn't mean he's out of shape, and since when did Diaz have athletic looking body? Diaz have retired from MMA, but he has been doing triathlons and shit so I highly doubt that he's out of shape. What I think may have happened was that as he aged and haven't cut weight in forever, he probably have higher fat percentage that's refusing to come off and thus said fuck it along the way. He looks fair bit bigger than Lawler in face offs, and I think could be a pretty big advantage against a guy like Lawler if you ask me. People commented on Diaz looking bad in shadowboxing, but Diaz never had pretty style to begin with. He always looked kinda shit when he shadowboxed, awkward as shit. Diaz never been the one to rely on his speed or timing either, which are the first things to go. Diaz also never been the one to rely on landing that one knock out punch, which is obviously dependent on timing as well. They say the power is the last to go, but you need timing to land that power, but even if the power's gone, Diaz has the style to still succeed without it. I think Diaz is a bad match up for Robbie, always will be. I believe Diaz will wanna implement a game plan similar that he used against BJ, and if Robbie ends up on his backfoot, I see he's a dead man walking, though it may not be easy, likely difficult. It really comes down to if Nick can take the shots he used to be able to take, or recover from it. And no one knows if he can. If he can, UFC should give him Masbumdal. Easy fight for Nick.
