    Looks like Diaz is taking this fight seriously..... Levin is the best 187lb kickboxer on the planet right now and he fights in a style similar to Anderson's

    I don't think Levin is similar stylistically to Silva. Not that sparring with him isn't great work to get in, of course.

    I wonder if he will check leg kicks in this fight.

    Good move imo. Levin is a beast and is stylistically similar to Silva.

    i hope they did light sparring... diaz had a tough career, having gym wars against pro kickboxers wouldn't be good for his chin shape.
    btw artem levin is technically a great choice.

    just because you train with the elite doesn't mean he's elite. his skills are average & anderson silva will smash him. mark my words

    For some one who makes it clear he only takes fights for the paycheck, he does prepare well.

    still R.I.P Diaz

    im gonna LOL when Diaz uses all this "heavy" training as an excuse for when he loses.....speech would go something like this: Nick Diaz-"yea uhh, i took it too hard, i was tired and beatin up before the fight..%40 at best, Silva didn't bash my skull in, i beat myself"

    but what would be even more funny is reading about his fans agreeing with him like if they didn't see it coming

    Schilling and now Levin? Impressive training partners.

    Nick Diaz is coming to bang.

    Anderson wins via brutal clinch knees.

    Maybe he'll learn to check a kick.
