Best Fighter on the planet.
How about Belfort vs Diaz instead? That would be very fun to watch. Makes no sense this fight, but it would happen in the UFC, so whatever.
Machida would clearly beat Diaz by Decision. Would be a good fight though
Not only brazilians can do this stuff
I would like to see Diaz come back soon. There are still plenty of fights at welterweight for him, as previously mentioned. I don't think he would do well at middleweight, and a fight with Bisping would sell a card. The reality of that fight would be Bisping bouncing in and out hitting a few quick punches, while Diaz calls him a crumpet eating pussy (bitch is more likely, of course) for not engaging.
Machida would certainly be in a title match after a win or two against top contenders at middleweight. I'd also say he could beat Weidman and be champ, should Silva fail to do so. I do like the rubber match idea with Shogun though.
Vitor should fight somebody. Anybody at this point. I'd venture to say that if he did get a shot at the middleweight title, it would be on a Memorial Day weekend card at the earliest. And that would be a year of his fighting career gone to waiting for something that wouldn't be guaranteed.
Diaz has no chance against the top fighters of any division he can realistically fight in. His _ONLY_ win since coming back to the UFC banner has been at 170 lbs against a swollen 155'er. There is no way nick diaz is anything but an undercard fighter, swollen up due to a fan base who appriciate weed smoking and taunting more then fighting. A fight with Machida ends in another UD against nick, and his 3rd consecutive in ring tantrum and retirement.
Yeah, this is just another fighter that would frustrate the shit out of Diaz and force him to retire again and complain about the state of MMA. Machida wouldn't stand in the center of the cage and trade with Nick. He'd hit and run, force Diaz to chase him, and pepper him with leg kicks. If you want to bring Diaz out of retirement, offer him up a stand and bang fighter. Throw him a Chris Leben, a Wanderlei Silva or a Robbie Lawler rematch. That'll wake Nick up and be fun to watch.
As a Diaz fan, I don't love this fight. You're right, Machida will run and Diaz will get pissed and countered all night long. Diaz is still a top contender at 185 and 170 and so is Machida at 205, but stylistically I see this as a nightmare match-up for Diaz.. He also isn't used to fighting big guys like lyoto.
Shogun/Machida 3 makes sense right now I agree. BUT I don't like Vitor vs Machida either, Vitor needs to fight for the belt or against someone for the #1 contender now. How about Vitor vs Rory at 185, I like that a lot better.
Fedor Emelianenko is the Greatest P4P MMA fighter to ever walk the earth, hands down.
Weird. This has to be the least anticipated match-up between two big name fighters. We all know how this fight would look from past matches of Diaz and Machida.
I'd watch Cung Le vs. Machida at 185 gladly.
You say shark I say hey man, Jaws was never my scene and I don't like Star Wars
