    It is pretty big in the educational world.

    I think Nick would have great intelligence in bodily-kinistetic intelligence. He also might be pretty good spacially. He might also be ok intrapersonally.

    I have read two of his books on MI theory. He is a juggernaut in the field.

    Here is the Ferrari I was referring to. I don't think dana's going to be able to get one, unless he preordered craxy-assed early.


    This Is More Of The 963 HP LaFerrari Hypercar

    I've been to a couple sessions at conferences on it. I think it has merit, I've just never read up on it.

    there is more than one business model. catering entirely to the ignorant casual fan while not building the integrity of the brand is short-term gain at long-term expense.

    They could make money on a Weidman bout, without a doubt. He's far more marketable than Lietes, or Cote, or even Maia. Even if they had to decrease their profit margin on one fight to appease the diva in Silva, they can regain that revenue pretty easily.

    It's not like zuffa is living month to month like Affliction was.

    I agree there can be a difference between being intelligent and being cunning. I'm not trying to say that Nick is a misunderstood genius...but I don't think he's the slackjawed manchild you've painted him as, either.

    If that's really what the bigger shocker would be then lets Sigbet. Pretty sure Nick ended up being the one who headlined that card while GSP sat in the crowd lol. Yeah, he really wants to avoid the pillow that is GSP in what would be a huge payday. The guy who couldn't finish shields, hardy, koscheck, and countless others. I'm sure GSP's just so intimidating to all of the other welter weights...

    "Nik Diaz hav no idea 'ow dark I am in my head sometime" ...not fooling anyone but himself lol.

    The only one avoiding a fight is GSP avoiding the Hendricks fight.

    And Sniggles, obviously, there is no valid reason, which I've said multiple times. So why your still expecting me to find one, I have no idea.
