    I can't think of one that makes any sense.

    If you think he has a chance can you please explain how you think Nick can get it done?

    Btw I really like Nick Diaz and Anderson both. Its just, well, I think Anderson is a lock to win the fight anywhere. The last high profile fight I was this sure of was machida couture.

    Not get Ko'd lol


    My guess would be focusing on the body while never over extending. Chris caused alot of problems for Silva because he would attack then get out of striking range. Where as other fighters always thought they could catch silva so they stayed in striking range.

    Chris never ran into Silva. He closely followed him at a safe distance

    This threw off Silva because after a while he didn't think Chris would fully attack.

    But Nick doesn't have enough power and will get ko'd

    Thats what makes this so interesting. He likes to do a lot of things Silva does but Silva beats him everywhere IMO.. Maybe he has a chance on the ground Diaz BJJ is excellent and maybe he can out grapple Silva.. I love both fighters also.

    Cuss at him. Say things like "are you fucking serious?" And "hey MOTHERFUCKER!" A lot and flick Andy off. And then retire until he decides he wants to fight lawlor

    The only gameplan is to hope Silva boxes with him. Even then Diaz is outmatched. Thereis no win against a bigger and more skilled fighter. Diaz took this fight for the pay,

    I honestly think is his game plan. He has admitted it before, he fights for money now and that's it.

    Rely on his chin while pressuring but not over committing. Work the body and hope his chin holds up and out cardio Silva to rounds 4-5 and turn up the pressure while throwing caution to the wind. Thing is, for all of the shit Diaz gets for taking punches and having "no head movement" he's rarely been dropped (if ever) by a straight punch, which is where Silva's accuracy and power in his counters seem to be...

    i can pretty much tell you exactly how the fight is gonna go

    first off, it's never going to the ground. not unless you count nick coming out of the clinch and doing that slow crumble to the floor thing as the ground game.

    also, anderson is gonna have his hands high the entire time, he's not gonna taunt cause he isn't worried about the takedown.

    the entire fight is going to be nick doing his boxing on the inside and anderson doing muay thai at range, adding more and more kicks as time passes. it ends when anderson lands a KO punch (unlikely), nick lands one of his 20 hit jab combos on the inside near the cage (more unlikely) or by decision.

    I think Nick's only chance is to throw caution to the wind and go totally ballistic immediately and hope to get lucky. Sadly, I think that is his only chance.
