    Fight earlier meng!!

    Fight in Round 1!!

    Time is running out! You’re about to lose a decision!!

    Or the doctors will stop the fight because of your bloody face.

    Nick Diaz even did well in Round 3 against GSP. He might have stolen the round.

    Fight in Round 1!!

    How many decisions are they going to lose before they stop saving energy in the championship rounds.

    Nick don't do that. Nick fights from round 1.
    Nate don't do that either, Nate was just completely outclassed against Leon.
    The only way that he can catch him was for Leon to make a mistake. That's why.

    When have the Diaz brothers waited to the fifth round to fight? That's not a typical Diaz trait, what happened last night.

    Nick pretty much gives up in the late rounds if he is losing. See the Anderson and Condit fights

    They can fight for longer. They’re not one shot ko artists. they’re not waiting they’re pressuring that why you saw leon of crumble and barely survive.

    The majority in here thought if leon didn’t destruct Nate and get him out it was a failure. As nobody has done that to him but Thompson tkod him.

    so either the ww division is shit. Or as sherdog likes to say Nate is a blow up 155er. Who almost took out the number one contender on the longest win streak.

    They’re in cruise control bro. Nick's fight against Silva was pathetic for that reason. The minute they felt famous they did the same shit McGregor did. It went from authentic “fuck you” fighting to wwe actor shit.
    I’ll always have respect for the Diaz brothers because unlike Conor they actually put the hours in to attempt to become elite while he just threw a telegraphed spinning kick and yelled at everyone. But the important thing is that you cocksuckers can’t be crying about fighter pay and then watching this shit. At least don’t pretend to care you dumb fucks ban me fuck youtubers, wwe characters and ecelebs. Keep sports competitive.

    It's because they have an inferiority complex it's like if they give 100% the whole fight and get beat who do they blame? But if they clown have good cardio not take it seriously then come alive last round they can always say no one can finish me I win every fight blah ah boring

    The thing is with the Diaz brothers is that if you give them an opportunity they will take it and hurt you real bad. This is why a lot of Nate’s have been comebacks (Conor, Guillard, MJ etc). It all depends on what the opponent does, if you show your tires they will swarm on you, if you start being careless like Leon was they will crack you.

    Leon looked great until he decided to stall the fight and go to a decision instead of finishing Nate.

    The unified rules (rounds / time limit) were made to make a Diaz fight more competitive.... We all know there is no rounds on the streets of Stockton..

    It's not that Nate was trying harder in the 5th round, it's that he keeps a similar pace while his opponent fades and defenses get lazy. If fatigue didn't exist, Nate would be a much less successful fighter.

    Diaz bro’s aren’t super athletic, they have to wear down their opponents and overwhelm them with volume to win.
