so stoked for tomarrow. the day before my birthday. get to watch the fight with my best friend. last thing my friend said to me was. lets keep our fingers crossed for diaz. i said… theyve been crossed for every fight hes ever had. cant wait…
I used to come in running in a lot, and getting overly aggressive. You get that way, because you (get caught up in trying to) win on damage. You’re fighting a different fight. One guy’s trying to win the round, one guy’s trying to win the fight.
That’s why I like dealing with Pride rules. I thought that there would be an organization that has that type of scoring criteria. I thought that show would stick around; I’d probably be fighting for them right now.
But that whole thing went under. They kind of want to do away with that whole way of fighting, even though it’s been around for a long time.
The restarts and the old Pride rules, it’s better.
The yellow card (if) you stall. You can’t stall. You have to fight.
You can’t elbow. You have to punch. It takes a lot of space. A guy on the bottom wants to get up, he gets up because you’re making space to punch. It makes for a more technical aspect to come out. It makes for more transition and movement to happen. It’s more exciting to watch and it makes for the better fighter to win -nick diaz
nick diaz at the press conference…craziness. the guy makes alot of sense and those that dislike him seem to look past that. i dont care what the uppity fans say, the guy is one of the truest martial artist out there today. im actually going to shell out the 45 bucks or whatever for this ppv which i never do. he’ll likely lose to gsp who will stand a while and eventually shoot in for takedowns never letting diaz get his rhythm on the feet and if nick starts to threaten from the bottom gsp will let him up and do it all over again. but ill sure as hell be pullin hard for nick and im hoping gsp tries to prove a point and stand up with nick only to get boxed up. certainly always a chance for a sweep and a submission to, or something from the back. one can hope.
