    Default Nick Diaz training to fight off of his back against Georges St-Pierre

    Nick Diaz training to fight off of his back against Georges St-Pierre - Five Ounces of Pain : Five Ounces of Pain

    To help get Diaz ready, Melendez told MiddleEasy they have a plan in place involving Jake Shields.

    “I’m sure if we get those two boys together, have Jake Shields on top of Nick Diaz all day and we work from there, I think we’re gonna have a really great chance,” said Melendez, shining a little light on the Graciefighter’s strategy.

    Shields, a former Strikeforce champion, is a submission-specialist by trade, compiling ten tap-outs in his 27 victories with a number of notable wins to his credit like those over larger foes like Yushin Okami and Dan Henderson.

    Melendez also responded to St-Pierre’s statements on lightweight champion Benson Henderson having provided a blueprint for beating the Diaz brothers when he dismantled Nate Diaz in a December title-defense, dismissing the French-Canadian’s comments as little more than a lame attempt at talking trash.

    “I think he’s barking up the wrong tree there is all I gotta say,” added Melendez. “Everyone is a different fighter.”

    This is a given. Nick is pretty good off his back already. Plus having Jake on top of you for 7 days a week cant hurt.

    Throw in checking leg kicks as well, cause he will be eating a lot of those before he gets taken down

    Thats a rediculous stupid plan! Talk about planning for defeat. so a black belt in BJJ is "working off his back" are you kidding me. I though thats what they do! how about TDD

    Its like going into a war againt a navy and just "practicing on your swimming" instead of practicing to avoid getting sunk in the first place.

    HW- Mir, Brock, Fedor, Cain
    LHW-Shogun, Tito, Mousasi. Rampage
