    Will hands be throw in the air and other funny antics in this fight?
    I hope so because it's pretty hilarious.

    Without a doubt. Especially from Silva I'd imagine.

    I am imagining that they will do the respect fight. No showboating.

    Only chance of no showboating/clowning will be if Diaz dominates, which does not seem likely.

    This very very possible. Picture Maia taunting Silva and Carlos taunting Diaz:eek:

    This is how it will be, so far they have shown nothing but respect. After the Weidman thing Anderson isn't gonna come out showboating and Diaz has a lot of respect for Anderson

    No taunting, only sleep for Diaz.

    Of course. It's why I'm hoping for a double KO

    I doubt it. I don't believe Silva is "showboating" as much as looking for an excuse to keep his hands low to avoid a takedown. I find that his showboating is typically reserved for fights against wrestlers and bjj fighters.

    Despite Diaz' bjj credentials, I think he will use his boxing against Silva so Silva won't need to showboat to defend the takedown attempts.

    I see the first three rounds being taunts, counter-taunts, taunts while changing levels, and taunt feints.

    In the third round Diaz will land a Stockton Slap, at which point Silva will punch a hole into Nick's chest, rip out his heart, and then taunt Diaz with his still-beating as he collapses.

    Hell yeah theres going to be showboating. Even in the sparring session he was doing his little tauntish headwork shenanigans. i mean i know its a legit evasive thing and its gotten him nasty Blows but theres definitely a bit of arrogance in the movement and hes my fav fighter and he MIGHT get away with it with diaz but i hope he knows better than to try that again with weidman.

    Taunting, clowning, flipping the bird. Not a single strike though.
