    I’m expecting Nick to utilize a kick heavy gameplan against Robbie, mixing up high kicks with jabs and straights. Robbie will have some moments where he pressures but overall Nick will control most of the fight. There is a possibility of clinch and groundwork and Robbie may get the better of Nick in the clinch which could be a wildcard factor. Overall, this is Nick’s fight to win.

    I'm not sure how many kicks I've seen Nick throw in his entire career

    Diaz has not won a fight in a decade- I think he is a great fighter- but that's a lot to ask- Robbie more likely decisions him-

    He looks bigger. Hopefully he has his cardio and Chin, if he does he grinds out a win imo.

    Surely you’re not serious about Nick winning via throwing head kicks

    Lawler is really coming to fight, how much the sudden change in the weight class will effect him and what Nick Diaz will show up remain to be seen

    Robbie has looked so bad lately especially in the work rate, boxing and boxing defense, not to mention looking flustered a lot and rarely throwing back that it's really hard not to go with Diaz style wise which of course a big gamble in itself with him being gone so long. Imo if someone feels very confident in this fight then you are bullshitting or don't know shit about mma. So many variables, questions yet to be answered and things to consider.

    The factor I didn’t consider was Nick’s cardio to be lacking

    First strike he threw was a high kick
