    You almost feel like they could be good friends but they’ll likely never go there (it’s weird seeing Severn and Frye now so chummy…who knows)

    Deep mutual respect, No BS fighters, no wolf tickets, no out of control dislike/hatred…..just two fighters who know they have to get past eachother in order to advance and more than willing to knock eachother out unconscious to do so

    Diaz wishing Lawler to take on Usman should he lose this Saturday was probably one of the classiest things I’ve ever heard

    this is the way it should be

    I'm excited for sure. You have Diaz with his anxiety, nervous energy. On the other hand you got Lawler with his as cool as the other side of the pillow attitude.

    Anyone that would put current version of Lawler in the cage against Usman must truly hate Lawler.

    I hope it's good despite the current condition of both.

    Speaking of classy GSP rooting hard for Diaz to go far was def runner up for pure class



    it’s great when awesome fighters let the past be the past and wish nothing but the best for past foes


    Reminds me of Jens and BJ

    This was a great move by the UFC to make this one happen. Even if the fight sucks,it brings back some good memories,just thinking about it.

    Diaz is all kinds of delusional but still was a class act all throughout that press con. I've gotten used to Nick's skewed view on things at this point (even claimed off hand that the fight with Usman is already booked; and imagine Lawler and Usman at this point haha), but that was nice to see

    Touché

    it was weird that Diaz was whining about the UFC coming up with this and pushing it calling them dumb/lame whatever but HE’S the one who signed it off

    ??? Definite Nickism

    That's true of Nick but I think Robbie actually likes fighting, he'd probably keep doing it if he won the Powerball jackpot.

    Severn and Frye are old friends from the 80's.

    I can't even watch these press conferences because the "journalists" and drunk fans are absolutely insufferable.

    It is almost like these two guys had the same lives, except one turned to drugs. I'd bet they understand each other pretty well.

    That is number one bullshit, my friend.
