Wondering if anyone else picked nate diaz from the beginning. I picked him not knowing anything about him or his brother.

I picked him after his fight with Emerson, mainly because I'm a fan of his brother.

I picked him and gray from the start. Saw diaz fight before and he's a young talented dude.

I picked Manny from the start, after Lauzon fought Cole Miller, I upgraded Nate to second. Check the archives for proof. WAR Nate. But I think Manny will win it all.

From the fiirst show I picked Nate and Joe oh well I was close.

I picked Nate & Joe and was disapointed when Joe didn't make it.

I think manny is going to come in throwing hands and just trying to destroy nate and when this happens manny is going to loose control and get caught up in a submission. I mean nate put on a submission clinic against gray.

So write it down nate by submission.

I picked Joe- Nate, diaz looked liked a more well rounded package since his first fight

Nate's grounds skills versus rookie type competion equals submissions everytime! He and his brother are pretty filthy!

my dad just got into MMA and liked nate

I think Nate or Joe were the safe pics. I had Nate winning, but he lucked out on Manny's injury. Anyone else was not well rounded enough (Gray included, but he is getting there) or a huge underdog (Manny, especially because he hadn't fought in a while). In addition, I think Wiman was overrated after his fight with Fisher

h i picked him from the start i really didnt know much about him besides he was nick bro but i thought that if hes anything like nick hes got some skill so ill just pick him i also picked joe b/c of what he did to jens even though i didnt like it cuz i was a jens fan

I picked manny and imo I was close enough to being right:grinsmile26:

07-14-2007, 09:32 PM
i picked nate from the beginning but only because i like his big brother.

07-14-2007, 09:33 PM
I picked Joe and Nate. At least one of mu picks made it.

i figured wiman and joe, also liked gabe (lol) and nate, i counted manny right out, oops
Unfortunately i picked Gabe as well. who knew the cake would KO him?? my other pick was joe. better luck next time.

I picked Nate Diaz as soon as I saw his was Nicks Bro... BUT I also picked another Nate .. Marquadt and that got me nowhere lol

I had figured that Nate was probably the most talented of the fighters on that show, but figured he'd self-destruct and blow the opportunity.

I'll happily say that I've got even more respect for him now, with how he kept it together. He had that spat with Karo, but Karo would have pissed me off top - grabbing him like that and giving those little Godfather-slaps.

By the way, Eviltoes I love your sig - mind if I save it my desktop?
