    This is the only way I see Nick winning if he can pull this off with an RNC or arm lock.

    Since Nick won't be taking Spider down by single leg, double leg or in the clinch, and will most likely not knock him down, I can only think of him dragging Spider down like how he did to Condit in the 3rd round, and locking a body triangle.

    Don't think I ever seen anyone take Spider's back before. Will be interesting to see if it does happen, even to roll in Diaz's guard and Diaz trying to pull a sub off his back. Or, Diaz taking Spider's back, if he can't get the RNC, he can roll into full mount.

    Nick will come to stand and bang. He will lose before he realizes that's a bad idea

    I think everyone's going to be very surprised when they realize how much bigger and stronger Silva will be on fight day. Nick could get a trip but Andy is stronger and a high level black belt, he will find a way up.

    What do you think that hideous chud is listening to?

    I'm thinking something upbeat with a positive message...or Cake's Short Skirt/Long Jacket.

    The real question is, will he be able to Stockton Slap Silva before getting knocked out?

    I see this fight as a 3 round sparring exhibition. Silva needs the rounds, he needs to get his timing and feel back in the cage. Will be a fun fight. Likely ending with a knockout by Silva late in the fight.

    No he won't. Silva via TKO and he will make it look easy.

    If nick tries that on Silva, Silva will just get out of it and Nick falls on his back. Silva comes over to offer him a hand back up while Nick Diaz flips him off and starts cussing at Silva saying he's a pussy for not jumping to his guard to which Silva promptly laughs and walks away forcing Diaz to stand up.

    I don't see Nick trying to take this fight to the ground. If Andy takes him down, I would expect to see him use rubber guard, trying for triangles, omoplatas, armbars or maybe even another gogoplata. I don't see many opportunities for Nick to get body triangle in this fight. It's probably gonna stay standing anyway.

    Or Andy body triangles him, Silva does it a lot...but it won't come to that.
