    Stuff like the first Aurelio fight I dont like cuz the belt shoulda been on the line, I dont understand havign to beat the champ to earn a title fight with the champ lol but at the same time it still proves that nothing is solid in one fight, cuz as we seen Gomi won the rematch.

    But when you got situations like the Gomi/Diaz fight where 160 is a catchweight, or the GPs.. theres not much you can do about those situations.

    i truly, sincerely hope that this fight happens, and that Diego takes some sort of shit-talking to heart, and tries to think that Sakurai is gonna go down like Joe Riggs.

    Sakurai will do him like he did Olaf standing. and on the ground, Diego won't tap him, wont finish him. he could just punch the mat for a while and win a decision because he looked flashy and stayed on top, but i think Mach could sweep him, can sub him, can stand with him. Diego is gonna get fucked up

    i really think this is going to be an interesting fight, i give the advantage to Sakurai by far. Although, i doubt dana wuld really want to throw him in their with an animal like Sakurai just coming off his lose, but then again, dana tried getting Forrest in their with Machida after his big loss to Jardne, so you never know.

    Diego's an exciting fighter(dunno wut happened in kos fight), and i hope this fight is exciting, could care less who wins.

    Yeah but you're ignoring that Diaz was outstriking Gomi until he landed that punch.

    True, but Diaz had little trouble defending and started to get into position where he could apply something like an armbar or triangle. Diaz was doing pretty well at defending and fighting back. If it was UFC rules than Gomi would've been racking up points, but given it's Pride I think Diaz was doing pretty well from his back.

    Yeah but Diaz was clearly landing the cleaner, more accurate and consistent strikes. He rocked Gomi several times the last two minutes of the round. Every time in the fight where they traded, Diaz was outboxing him. Gomi landed the heavier single shots but Diaz's striking technique looked better the whole fight.

Diaz landed punches but no takedowns, no knockdowns, etc. Clearly round 1 goes to Gomi. I can't see how anyone can honestly and nuetrally score that round any other way.

    Actually I'd say Gomi was dominant the first 3 minutes while Diaz was dominant the last 2 minutes. Round should go to Gomi, but Diaz was hardly blown away.

    I don't see how round 2 was even. Diaz was in control the whole time. It was even for damage maybe but Diaz was landing more shots and pressing the action. In UFC terms he'd be winning through "ring generalship" or whatever.

Diaz went for a sub, does he get points for that if it was a failed attmept? He then juped & rolled into an armbar attempt that failed and it left him in north & south position and Gomi succeeded in landing 2-3 punches to the face while in north & south.

    To me Gomi came out of that exchange getting the better of Diaz as he shrugged off 2 sub attempts, earning his north & south positioning and landed punches while his opponent was in a vulnerable posision.[/B]



    I think sub attempts should score points and IMO you underrate Diaz.


    The fight between Diaz and Diego was VERY close in terms of damage and hits landed or attempts to finish in my view, with Diaz getting outpointed because he spent too much time on bottom.


    Against Karo, IMO Diaz actually won. The fight was very back and forth with positioning and attempts to finish. Karo again won because Nick's wrestling isn't that good and his raw strength level is low for a WW. If you look though, Nick came VERY close to finishing Karo in the second round and aside from that the fight was even.



    I haven't seen the Riggs and Sherk fights, but from comparison I think Nick's a more dangerous fighter than either of them. He was one of the best technical strikers at WW and his BJJ game is amazing. The only thing holding him back was the fact that he always spends too much time on the bottom. Because of the UFC's judging system, if he didn't finish a fight he was guaranteed to lose a decision.


    I think Diaz has the potential to be a top LW or WW; he just needs to do some weightlifting and incorporate more wrestling into his ground game.

    In a perfect world everyone would see things my way... Seriously though, I am open to opinion and am just trying to hear where people are coming from (In detail) as to how they think Diaz was dominanting the fight because I am having difficulties seing this.

    It's here to stay, 2007 is the year of the Pig but we must break free of our homophobic ways. John Amaechi and Danny Abadia have come out and Tito Ortiz is just dying to come out as well.

    There are definitely some people on here dying to come out too.

    Body paint and Astroglide, what a beautiful thing.

    The 2nd fight was maybe the worst fight I ever saw and should of ended in a draw.
