    Could be fun, if Nick takes it seriously.
    Rory had me worried about being a point fighter going into the Lawler fight... man was I wrong. He went crazy aggressive.
    I was pleasantly surprised. I would have thought that the smart game plan was to fight on the outside, but he almost got the better of Robbie, brawling.
    I was really impressed, even with the loss.

    Rory is not really a point fighter. He's fought where he has not gone for the kill before, but you can't finish them all. I think he beats Nick however he wants.

    I thought his lack of aggressiveness cost him in rounds 3 and 4, letting lawler back from the brink. I'm worried about his brain long term.

    Diaz Mcdonald would be a beatdown with rory knowing a title shot would be on the line. Good matchup all the same - book it dana!

    Rory absolutely destroys Nick Diaz. It will look much like the Rory vs Nate fight only with a little more "Is that all you got B!tch" in between elbows to the face.

    Haha, still on the Diaz bandwagon I see?

    Rory would dominate Diaz.

    I think it was the broken nose, so early on.
    He had to breath from his mouth from round one. Gargling blood could not have helped either with the cardio.
    I thought he looked well until the last few minutes. Considering how injured he must have been.

    Why would Rory fight someone that much lower than him?

    What bandwagon? He just lost to Silva. You're the one on the Rory bandwagon dude.

    True.
    But wasn't it against Ellenberger, where he just threw straight punches and waited for the bell?
    If I remember it correctly, then it was really boring. But my brain could be messing with me.

    He does great (wolf) tickets sales, though.

    I've come to terms years ago now that the Nick Diaz we knew from 2009-2012 is gone. The motivation is lacking, and most likely if he somehow got cleared to fight after his latest suspension he'd probably piss hot again for pot. Also the way he dumped Richard Perez before the Silva fight made me lose respect for Nick. Perez turned Diaz's stand up into something great. 2015 Nick vs Rory would be a one sided beat down by Rory and i am a Diaz fan.

    Man, there is NOTHING that can happen in this world that will ever get fans on Sherdog to not want to see Diaz against some elite fighter despite the fact that he hasn't won in years.

    He was given favorable matchups in StrikeForce because he was a star and drew attention to their brand. But against the top guys, his limitations have become clear. Plus he's suspended all the time and is constantly taking time off.
