    If anyone wonders what Nick Diaz vs GSP would look like, just pop in the Henderson vs Nate tape.

    I think if anything this fight and the Condit fight might make Nick rethink his usual approach.

    Are athletes really self-centered enough to think God cares about a MMA fight when he doesn't give two shits about kids dying of white phosphorus poisoning?

    Jack Slack talks about the similarities in the Diaz brothers' and Penn's narrow, almost side-on stance, and about the strengths and weaknesses of it. You gain length and snap on the jab along with presenting a smaller profile to head strikes, but it makes you vulnerable to outside low kicks.

    Nate got dropped by a punch to his thigh.

    Don't you know that God is everywhere and can be all things to all people and surely has time to devote to everyone especially dying kids and MMA fighters.


    I've always personally wondered do the athletes feel god/jesus is responsible for when they lose to ? especially by a brutal ko ?

    It's no coincidence that most champions are pretty big for their weightclass, Diaz is going to have to work on his clinch game and add a bit more strength if he ever wants to be champ...maybe also just do leg presses a shitload since Henderson's are twice as big as his lol
    Size wasn't the issue in this fight. Diaz came in touted as having the best boxing south of Anderson and a 9" length advantage in this bout, and got schooled from wire to wire.

    I'm not a big fan over oversized fighters. I'm dead-set against Dolce and 20lb+ weight cuts. I'm firmly in favor of same-day weigh ins.

    Diaz was outskilled and outworked...it wasn't just size.

    People shouldn't be shitting on Diaz. He had his eye closed for him in the first round. It was really over from there, but he went the distance based on heart.

    Before the bouts, I'd assumed Penn was just too small to beat GSPJr, and was hoping he'd drop back to LW after a game-but-unsuccessful showing [which didn't happen, obviously]. As a Penn fan, I have zero desire to see him face Henderson.
