    I just said him cause he's kinda the anti-Napoleon.
    Yeah Napoleon was slightly above average height for his time but was always with his elite guard so they made fun of him for being short o.0 lol

    I love wrestling and the reason I got into MMA was because of wrestling. I'm not agreeing with vimyridge particularly however taking a guy down and sitting on top of him in order to win a fight on points is basically taking advantage of the system. Just because it is technically illegal doesn't mean you aren't a true fan if you don't enjoy watching that or criticize people for doing so.

    K.J. Noons on potential Nick Diaz rubber match: 'If fans want it'
    “If I can get a couple wins and get back in the top 10 and be a contender again, I think there’s definitely a rubber match there because I definitely got robbed in that second fight, I think,” Noons said. “There’s a rubber match there. I don’t care what weight. But I feel like he’s at the top. He’s lost a couple too, but I feel like I’d like to work my way up in the UFC a little more and get my name out there.

    “If it’s a draw and people want to see it, I’m definitely down for it.”

    Nick Diaz on boxing Roy Jones Jr: ‘Buy my contract so we can fight’

    Former UFC welterweight title challenger Nick Diaz was in Las Vegas on Saturday night, where he was in attendance for the highly anticipated rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley. Following the main event, Diaz spoke with Fighthub, where he discussed his love for boxing and why is able to enjoy them even more this year.

    "I just love to watch him [Pacquiao]." Diaz told Fighthub. "I love the way he fights. I try and take what I can. This year has been good to me because I can go out and make a lot of these boxing shows. Usually I have to fight. People don't think I am a serious boxing fan but most of the time I had 3 to 6 fights a year in a career that lasted 13 years."

    Diaz, although seemingly distracted during the interview, appeared to show interest in a potential boxing match against Roy Jones Jr, as he pleaded for the boxing legend to buy out his UFC contract so that it may become a reality.

    ‘If I could get somebody to buy my contract out from the UFC, I'd be fighting out here. Tell this guy [Roy Jones Jr.] to buy my contract so we can fight."

    Reverting back to his status with the UFC, Diaz made it clear that he is interested in a title shot against Johny Hendricks, but does not expect to return to fighting unless the UFC is willing to renegotiate his contract.

    "I'd like to fight for the world title against Johny Hendricks but these guys [the UFC] are kinda holding out. I'm trying to renegotiate my contract and negotiate some fights for this year. I don't know what will happen, maybe nothing. That's fine. Either way I can't complain. I had a good run. I've already had 37 fights but I would like to make a boxing run. It is up to Dana White and up to who's got the real money."
