Thread: Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva, @ 185lbs

    there is another level of striking above diaz. and several levels above that is Anderson Silva.

    i mean, come on. look at who diaz had out boxed. the only 2 in there who have any claim is paul daley and bj penn. penn got tired and roughed up against the cage and daley rocked diaz a couple of times. not to mention daley is sloopy compared to silva. but hell compared to silva everyone is sloppy.

    diaz would try to taunt, anderson would drop his hands move back to the cage diaz would swing anderson wouldnt be there cuz well he never seems to be there when someone swings then he would KO diaz. if it didnt end in the first it would only be cause we saw a 5 min dance off between the 2 first

    It will be very hard for Silva to land a clean punch on Diaz. It would be a chess match that I think Silva would out point Diaz. It would look like 2 extremely high level Boxers trying to impose their will but Silva will get the better of the chest match because he has the height, reach, and strength advantage.
    I think it will look like the condit fight except DIAZ would be on the canvas asking the ref... "he threw spinning shit eh?"

    Where Condit landed his punches and kicks, Anderson would land, with more, and with much better technique, power, agility, and evasiveness. Add in size and reach advantage, and Nick Diaz just got murdered by Anderson Silva, not to mention Anderson's knees and if he used his muay thai clinch on Nick.

    I would love to see that fight, although, I wouldn't want to see Nick commit suicide afterwards. I actually enjoy watching him come fight and appreciate what he brings to the table as an athlete and fighter, but that's it.
    His clinch is devastating...Diaz would likely be happy to just get ko'ed cleanly than wind up in that clinch, that is the stuff nightmares are made of...Franklin x2 experienced them.

    Or would just clinch-fuck him and then ouch on Diaz's face.

    I do find this fight slightly interesting just to see if Diaz could somehow tire Silva out, would he have a chance?

    So, Im gonna assume Im having a stroke, and didnt just read that nick diaz has the best striking in MMA. About the only best that nick has in anything in mma is unibrow.

    Silva stamps nick into obscurity, and if by some god granted miracle, diaz actually managed to stay awake for the end of the fight, his face would look like a pound of raw hamburger.

    I love Diaz but he doesnt stand a chance in this one. But Anderson is getting older. One day he is just going to show up and not have it anymore. He relies on his talents. He can still win with skill, but that isnt his style.

    Im going with Silva.
    I'm going to go with the same man. If Condit could be evasive enough to frustrate Diaz then I have no doubts that Silva could do the same.
