    Ok, lets look at these two pictures. Left one was from 4/20 (you know it) and the right one is from 9/22. In 5 months, WTF HAPPENED? If it was anyone other than Nick Diaz, we know what everyone would be saying but seriously, WTF? 77D7EDA3-9571-4AEE-8F70-9ABD34DD1AA4.jpeg

    He went from like 7-8% body fat to like 17%. It's not that bad, but it's not sustainable to be that lean either

    I think the first picture is when he was reported to be weighing around 168-170lbs, maybe targeting a fight at lightweight. Second picture is when he knew he'd be fighting at welterweight (now middleweight) so he probably loosened the diet and planned to weigh around 180-185 on fight night.

    true fighters like Nick stay lean out of camp and then they get fat and soft during fight week

    He could go from right to left in a couple of days. I have no idea what the issue was in making WW now but if he is healthy then he should be able to make it.

    No chance he was thinking about cutting to 155. He was probably just training hard for a tri and the weight came off. He seems to care more about those than fighting. I think he just fights because he needs the dough. But, who knows?

    Maybe a big reason he's doing this fight is the exposure for his other ventures. As in, coming in for a payday.

    He looks like Nick Diaz. He's never had a great body in MMA. He looks leaner and better when he's doing his outside activities.

    It wasn't the body that concerned me but his movement. He looked like Evander Holyfield who has nearly 20 years on him. It wasn't just slow, he looks off balance and uncoordinated.

    Lawler is very passive these days so it might just be a sad fight but if Lawler is motivated, it could be rough.

    He got back on the alcohol. He's a bad alcoholic, there's heaps of videos out there.

    He's getting beat I to a coma

    It couldn't be any more obvious: in the first pic, he's likely preparing for a triathlon and the like; in the second pic, he's just preparing to collect a paycheck. ;)

    There's nothing about Nick Diaz physically, mentally, spiritually, that I've read or heard in the last few days that indicates to me that he has any REAL belief that he can win this fight against Lawler. I think mentally he has already more or less accepted defeat. Don't @ me, it's just what I'm thinking.

    He could just be playing possum and sandbagging us all and come out looking sharp and fresh and in the zone but........... unfortunately I just don't see it to be honest.

    I can see Lawler going into Berserker mode and getting a TKO in Rd 1 or 2.

    His plan was always to fight at 185lbs...He bulked up and thinks he will have an extra advantage.

    I could be wrong, but i have a feeling that Robby is going to wreck Diaz.
