    Historical figure bashing?

    Riv is so old, Father Time loses the fight to him.

    Hell, I remember when Father Time was a punkass kid with a paper route.

    it makes me laugh that you think understanding the actual meaning of words is interchangeable with grammar.

    Hopefully Nick can come out of retirement and fight in the UFC. In the octagon, he's thrilling to watch and puts on great fights win or lose. His antics while fighting (taunting, etc) I could do without, and his attitude portrayed to the MMA universe isn't my favorite, but with GSP out, the Welterweight division could use him.

    As Renzo Gracie would say, Riv was around when Father Time was still in his Daddy's nutsack.

    I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.

    I like the concept, but isn't there enough of that going on randomly throughout the forum threads. For me, the entertainment in watching people call each other names is the spontaneity. You'd know exactly what you're getting into if you opened a thread like that.

    And you broke the first rule of Fight Club.

    While I really despise how the Diaz brothers carry themselves, there's big money fights with Nick in the UFC regardless of his record, kinda like a shoot-version of Sonnen's gimmick.

    IMO, Lawler/Diaz II just has money written all over it, book that for a five rounder on FOX main event card and you'll probably get a FOTY. I also think they could build one helluva fight between Diaz and Rory with pre-fight smack talk to really build Rory up, but again, if Nick's only after titles, then they're quite limited.

    I also think that while Nick has pretty shoddy TDD, his cardio could very well drain Hendricks, were they ever to be matched up.

    I wouldn't want to do business with him, but there given the loss of GSP(and Condit at WW) and Anderson for the foreseeable future, as a business, Diaz "moves the needle". Matches against Lawler II, Lombard and Rory all seem like good main or co-mains and his style is exciting. I'd just avoid booking him and Woodley AT ALL COSTS.
