    Maybe if he put down the pipe he wouldn't get the munchies so much then he'd have an easier time making weight.

    When people are anylyzing quotes. They are too quick to look at who's saying and it and the timing of it and pass it off as sour grapes. Nate Diaz has a legitimate point regardless of the current circumstance of his career. There should be more weight classes. They a lot many fighters that have all the talent and work ethic to become great fighters but face a big disadvantage because of their natural size. They either have to choose between having a big size disadvantage or having too cut too much weight (the gap between 185 and 205 is awful for this). Both those options can lead to a much shorter and much less successful career. I definitely think there should be more weight classes. The more fighters that can fight at an ideal weight the higher better the quality of product in to the cage will be.

    This looks good for the most part. There should be a 130. It should go 205, 220, SHW at the end. 230 is too big. It would deplete the 230+ division too much. There are LW that cut 20 pounds to get to 155. Someone at at 255 could easily could to 230.

    Lol I never thought I'd see the day where a Diaz showed such desperation...even if it meant being a paper champion.

    I'm all for it in time, I just don't know if the talent is there yet or if the UFC is financially apt enough to accommodate enough fighters.

    15 pounds to 20 pounds per weightclass jump isn't exactly slight. 7 or 8 pounds can make a MASSIVE difference in a weight cut.

    That's MMA fans for you. They get off on hating fighters, you see alot more critiquing than you do praise. I find it pretty sad/funny.

    Diaz is just a big cry baby and sore loser.
    Gothic flavor
    how I miss you
    if I only
    once could
    kiss you
    I'd be happy
    for one moment
    of my lifetime
    I'd be there.
