    There are two primary reasons why I root for Nick Diaz: The Fighter.

    One is that he truly is a magnificantly gifted fighter with stellar jits and really good MMA striking. I appreciate what he does during the fights and he's very entertaining and enjyoyable to watch.

    Secondly, I really like seeing somebody aside from GSP really look like a BEAST at WW and I enjoy the possibility of having the two someday meeting to be in the corner of my mind, given how polar opposite they are both technically and personality-wise and how little GSP has really been challenged since his Serra loss by somebody with little more than a puncher's chance. The fact that they're in different promotions gives it a helluva lot more fantasy-eque appeal to me and it's just nice to see somebody at WW impress without LNPing all goddamn fight long(cough FITCHFITCHFITCH cough).

    I have Diaz at #5 on my P4P list because I really DO believe he's the real deal and in regards to pure talent, he's tough to match, however he is also, a complete bonehead and that always swings around and bites him in the ass.

    I don't like the Noons matchup because aside from avenging his last loss in a defunct organization at LW, Diaz has very little to gain here, he's not fighting a ranked WW like Hieron or somebody who's had some top caliber WW challengers like Daley etc. and is basically stepping in there with a guy who has a damn legit PUNCHERS' puncher's chance and that's a BIIIIG risk IMO. I like Diaz in the fight because Noons looked like balls vs. Huen and didn't look too much better vs. Gurgel and now he's jumping up into a five round fight with somebody who's got skill for days, but Noons has some cannons to unload. I see this going akin to the Smith/Diaz fight, but still, I don't see the upside in this fight for Diaz, especially not a main event. If they wanted to have him avenge a loss, I'd have given him Ruthless again...or Mayhem....

    It's funny how people are still calling out Noons for ducking Diaz back in EliteXC. Yet he is fighting him now in Strikefore with no hesitation. You have to think maybe there was some truth to him having issues with the way EliteXC was presenting the fight to him at the time and the money behind it. Especially when you factor in his move to boxing.

    Realistically it makes more sense for him to stay at 155 and work towards the lightweight belt. Also he's taking the fight at a weight limit that clearly does not favour him. So he has more then one case for not taking a rematch but still did it.

    Hardly a cheap shot artist either one illegal knee does not qualify for that title. Otherwise a whole lot of fighters are cheap shot artists.

    Oh Dayne, you stole my line. Hoping that KJ pulls an upset and destroys Diaz.

    I am just really praying to the MMA Gods that KJ will put his fist through the back of Nicks skull.
