Nick is better than he showed but he still should never look like that. He got handled. At nicks best he beats K.J. everytime but Nick Diaz was not at his best. This was a very slow, no set up or emotion Nick Diaz. U could tell that he maybe took this fight lightly. I think he thought he could roll through him. This may be the best thing for him tho. Now he can get his head on straight and stop thinking he is unbeatable.
I think so too Nick has a lot to learn. His unorthodox style worked perfectly against Lawler and Gomi, but people catch on to that. His bad form is starting to be a weakness where he doesnt cover his face from a counter. Plus, Nick looked way to slow for a 160 lb. fighter, he needs to get in the gym and work on hand speed. Congrats to Noons the guy put on a show.
Yeah, I thought Diaz looked horrible in that fight. I thought there was something wrong with him. It looked as if he was only giving a half effort. I also wish he wouldn't have acted that way after the fight. It was too far over the top imo.
There are very few people who at without class that make it to the top of the heap. I cant name one champion right now that does not act with some kind of class. I believe you can tell a person's work ethic by the way he or she conducts himself. Nick is a good brawler. He is not elite. He may one day beeelite but he will have to change his ways. Look at his past,( smoking dope, fighting in hospitals after a loss, using the f word during interviews all the time.) He should show class and work hard and act like a man because he has the talent.
Lance is right. UFC champions seem to be relaxed in a fight, take defeat hard but with humility. Diaz has a chip on his shoulder. Thats fine until you face a level headed fighter….look at Fedor, Liddell, Hughes…in control of themselves at all times when they fight. Him flipping everyone off was rediculous, his face was cut up and he got out worked. Ask any fighter who is stopped like that if they can continue, of course want to, but its not safe period.
Yeah, Nick Diaz really likes to burn his bridges and definitely going to hurt him in the long run.
C'mon Nick. If ya don't want Dr. stoppage, block some shots with parts other than your face.
Diaz looked like shit. I've been pulling for this guy for years & I'm about to throw in the towel. He finally got his big shot & blew it. I'm so sick of seeing him get in there & fiddle fart around till he screws it up. Someone needs to tell the guy to get in & finish as quick as possible. I think the dude just likes to get hit. What the hell??? He cuts easy & he can't afford to get in there & trade with these guys. No one to blame but yourself Nick so shut the hell up.
Anyone else believe the excuse circulating that Nick Diaz had staph again during his fight with Noons?
haha no way. I dont think so. He sure looked fine when he stormed out pouting like a schoolgirl and flipping people off, then hitting the cameramans camera away. He was sloppy fell into some knees and got cut thats pretty clear to me.
Average UFC fighter who got a lot of hype beating one good guy who he was a lot bigger than and Gomi didnt even train for the fight. He's not a top fighter and thats why he'll never get back into the UFC. Nate Diaz looks good though.
Diaz looked too slow to have been at full health. I don't know if it was staff for an injury, but he is way better than he showed in this fight.
I agree. I'm not making an excuse for Diaz, or saying he would have won if…. but you have to admit, that was the worst performance we've seen of him, in and out of the cage. A physical set back isn't unreasonably unlikely. It is what it is though.
I think now being able to smoke his mojo is throwing his game off. Just like Popeye needing his spinach.
nick daiz is very good fighter.. he would be able to beat noons 9 out of 10 times..
Nick will never be a champion until he gets that chip off his shoulder and stops bitching about everything. Anger only gets you so far in life and in fighting.
I agree. Got to cut the baggage. How is Nate doing? Do they share that high voltage emotiveness?
no I don't believe for a minute that diaz had staph he is just making excuses I think that diaz should be eliminated from the entire sport he is an ediot he has acted out of line one time too many the guy on the ultimate fighter 6 was almost thrown off of the show just for talking to the camara man in a disrespectful way diaz crossed the line and deserves to at least be suspended for 9 months or longer
two + = 5
