    I see a painful loss to Diaz via tko from a knee to the sternum a la Sonnen 2.

    I'd probably take you more seriously if anything you said was actually comprehensible. Currently your statements suggest that you are either underage, foreign, or utterly lacking in cognitive functions for me to even BEGIN to listen to you. Even for a simple response.

    I can't believe I even replied. You should feel special. :)

    Yes, I'm aware that Anderson looks like Neo in The Matrix, but it sounds ignorant when people use it to reference Anderson's usage of these defensive boxing techniques. Weidman glitched this so-called 'matrix' anyway...

    When he does this he also leaves his body wide open. Leaning back that far compromises his balance, which can make him easier to drop or knock out as he's leaning his upper body and head back. It isn't smart, even though it may look cool. He already got KTFO'ed once doing it and we don't need to see it happen a second time. He needs to fight smart and quit pretending he's a legendary boxer.

    Is this confirmed? I've never heard of this.

    Also I have to ask. Is your name a pulp fiction reference or what?

    When he got knocked out he wasn't utilising any of the same defensive techniques. He was flat footed, square, leaning forward with no room to move but straight back.

    He was recklessly taunting. Fans get that confused with his defensive counter techniques from the Franklin or Griffin fights which 'resemble' taunting.

    I don't think he will do that again after being embarrassed by Weidman.

    Arghhh, darn it

    DARN IT ALL TO HELL

    You GOT ME!!

    You're right, everything you said (whatever that was)

    & yes, because of this altercation I am a complete idiot. If only my intellectual skills could even closely imitate your own maybe I'd have a little more luck in this one-sided beat-down you are imposing upon me.

    Yes, we will all see the matrix moves again. What will be truly amazing if he KOs Diaz at the end of the sequence ala Forrest

    I'm a big spider fan but still hope he gets a couple more fights first after the Diaz win (1 fun fight maybe at LHW then another serious contender fight)

    Reclaims the title and retires with it. Becomes consensus p4p GOAT

    Diaz is not a headhunter, so matrix won't work against him.

    Man Diaz is tailor made for Anderson.. he's never faced an opponent that can show his strengths so well. Sloppy flat footed boxer that inches forward waiting to be countered and picked apart. I'm excited. Anderson will matrix Diaz

    He was on his toes (balls of his feet) and leaning way too far back, as I said in my previous post. He then weaved to his right and directly into Weidman's left hook that Chris stepped in with, after he was thrown off by the doubled up/levered right hand (backfist). He was squared up and stationary when he shouldn't have been, stopped moving his feet and tried to compensate with his upper body/head movement on the lean, which cost him.

    I don't remember him ever leaning that far back in the Griffin or Franklin fights. But he's done the dipping, ducking, bobbing & weaving, and rolling/fading/swaying stuff for a while.

    Diaz will light up his body. If Anderson wins, it won't be with his boxing, it will be with his kicking.
