Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz Signed for Early 2015

Anderson Silva vs Nick Diaz

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will return to action on Jan. 31 against Nick Diaz in Las Vegas.  UFC president Dana White announced the development on SportsCenter on Tuesday.

The 39-year-old Silva has been sidelined since suffering a broken leg in his UFC 168 loss to Chris Weidman on Dec. 28.  White expects Silva to return in top form against Diaz.

“I think he will (be as good as he was before the injury).  He’s been training.  He said his leg feels great.  There were a couple of adjustments he needed to make, but other than that he feels good.  He’s confident.  He’s excited.  He’s ready to fight, and more importantly his head is in the right place with that leg.  I guess he’s been kicking a lot and he feels good,” said White

On July 24, Diaz inked a new three-fight deal with the UFC ending his pseudo-retirement.  Following his UFC 158 loss to then-champion Georges St-Pierre on March 16, 2013, Diaz announced that he was hanging up his gloves.  A fight with Silva was enough to entice the Stockton native back to the cage.

“I’d be interested in fighting (Anderson Silva) and anything that’s going to do well,” Diaz told UFC.com after signing the new contract. “As far as Anderson Silva, I think that would be a great fight for people to see because he has my type of style.”

A win over Silva would put Diaz in the mix for a title shot in the middleweight division.

“If he comes in and beats Anderson Silva, he could fight for the title,” said White.  “He’s right in there.  It would be a huge, huge win for him.”

    This will be like the Silva/Griffin fight. On the one hand it’ll be over by RD 2 so it’s not worth paying for. On the other hand it would be fun watching Diaz stumble around and beaten down.

    • DanO

      Yes of course! Because Diaz’s boxing is directly comparable to Forrest Griffins.

      Please stop commenting on MMA articles because you don’t know what the hell you are talking about.

      • Baller31

        Agreed. Can’t compare one of the worst strikers in mma (griffin) to one of the best (Diaz).

        • MuayThaiFood

          One of the most overrated you mean?

          • mrp3ezy

            have you ever done boxing before, and if so, properly? i shouldn’t really be asking this question because if you answered yes to both of those, you wouldn’t have said the comment i’m replying to.

          • MuayThaiFood

            Wow, you somehow replied without really saying anything. I guess that makes you the expert. It’s an mma match and Diaz’s boxing is not going to be the ticket against Anderson. He’s going to beat that lead leg to a pulp that Nick likes put all his weight on. We’ll see how his mma boxing works when he has no legs to go with his already poor footwork and head movement. If he sees round three it will be Silva’s attempt at making the fight seem like it’s more than tthe PPV money grab that it is.

          • Baller31

            Seriously doubt silva will rely on his kicking, especially after 1) he’s been clamoring for years to fight a boxer and 2) Weidman just snapped his leg

          • mrp3ezy

            i didnt say anderson wont beat beat him. im saying that diaz’s boxing is definitely not overrated. silva has this in the bag no doubt, but diaz’s boxing is wicked

          • Baller31

            No, not at all

        • Yeehaw

          Two things. One, Forrest Griffin is not one of the worst strikers of all time. Two, Nick Diaz is not one of the greatest strikers of all time. That’s about it.

          • Baller31

            Forrest—very slow, poor footwork, awkward head movement, no knockout power, I can’t think of a current UFC fighter with worse standup. And if you donf think nick Diaz is one of the best strikers in the UFC then you’re clueless

      • Lawdog1521

        By all means, go to Vegas, and place all of your weed money on Diaz. See how that works out for you.

        Silva makes short work of guys that push forward with no strategy. And Diaz loses anytime he fights someone with strategy.

        All of your fan boy crying isn’t going to change the outcome of this fight. Short of Silva tripping and hitting his head on the way in the ring, Diaz will lose.

        Remember these words and weep when it happens.

      • Kris-tyahn

        He’s not comparing Griffin’s striking to Diaz’s “striking” – he’s comparing that Diaz is going to get spanked! Diaz will walk straight & try to throw punches in bunches & he’s going to get tagged with a hard punch or kick to the face & Diaz will be ZZZzzzZZZ.

  • bajafox

    Nick is laughing all the way to the bank, probably stopped at the dispensary straight after

    It will most likely be a boxing match, both have shown great interest in pro boxing. I can see them abandoning the ground game and strike for 5 rounds

    • Lawdog1521

      Kind of hard to go five when Diaz will be out in two.

      • Kris-tyahn

        LOL

    • deepgrim

      thats what im worried about with diaz at the minute, is he just looking to cash a big cheque? he has made such a big deal about the money. when he came back to fight gsp i really felt like he hadnt trained hard enough for that fight (off course GSP may just have been too good for him), but it was unusual that he did so much promo work for that fight for the pay too. You would expect this to be a pure boxing match, both of them fancy themselves as boxers so hopefully they are both on there game, off course silva muay thai is on a different level to diaz

      • bajafox

        Silvas superior muay thai will be the difference. Both have great counter, great movement, great ground game but I recently watched Nick v Gomi and as probably the biggest Diaz nut hugger on mmaweekly, I can picture Nick KOd by knees

  • fisher

    what weight will they be fighting at ??

    • TheCerealKiller

      Silva is not coming down to 170…

      • uncle

        Yeah he is too old for that

      • Ian Price

        Maybe GSP will move up for silva?

        • TheCerealKiller

          Remember back when GSP said that if he were to more up, he would take the time off to put the weight on properly…

          • Frankie

            Delay tactic

        • Darin

          GSP? Move up from what? Retirement? He was scared of Silva when he still liked to fight…..

  • ReggieT

    I hope Silva claims redemption when he returns.

    • macarrech

      yes. what an amazing story that would be.

  • TheCerealKiller

    This is Silva’s warm up fight for his return. Then he will move up to 205 and take a run at Jones.

    • bajafox

      Lol, Jones really? That’s never going to happen, he doesn’t deserve a shot at Weidman, let alone Jones. You’re smoking better shit than Nick

      • deepgrim

        since when did deserving a title shot mean jack in the ufc. fact is jones v silva will sell like crazy if anderson can get a few wins at 205

        • bajafox

          IF he can get wins at 205, you think he can beat DC and Gustafsson? 205 has at least another year before anyone besides DC, Alex and Jones settle it. Nick will be retired smoking bomb ass weed with millions in the bank by the time Silva gets any title shot

          • deepgrim

            well jones has dc in september and if he wins they will have gustafsson up next, dont be surprised if this is the end of year card as his knee injury is not meant to be that serious. silva still doesnt fight by next january so it is very possible they could do the jones fight after if he is impressive. the division only has rumble johnson waiting after so it wouldnt shock me if they do the fight straight out. best diaz will hope for is too look good in the anderson fight/ possibly win and hope lawler beats hendricks. that could give him the title prospects as it would be a rematch they would both want

          • bajafox

            Most logical comment I’ve read. If Diaz makes it to a decision and Lawler gets the belt I can see Silva one fight away from a 205 title shot and Diaz getting a crack at Lawler.

            Silva can’t go back to contending for a 185 title unless he’s willing to fight Machida

    • Ian Price

      I would like to see that. To watch Silva toy with Bones then finally get bored and put him away would be one of the greatest joys to see in my life (nothing against jones, he’s a great fighter). I hope it happens…

      • Sean

        I can’t stand Jon jones. But come on….. Jones would throw silva around, beat him up then ground and pound him. Silva is great but jones is a beast. IMO silva wouldn’t stand a chance against jones.

      • Kris-tyahn

        Yeah Silva couldn’t beat Weidman in 2 fights, b.c Weidman was his size & jsut as strong, if not stronger, but you expect Silva to beat Jones….?!? BAHAHAHAHA okay, time to get Silva’s nutz out of your mouth dude! Silva would get crushed by any of the top 5 LHW’s, and then add Anthony Johnson & Phil Davis, but yeah Silva at 39 yrs of age, would toy with Jones ……. And Diaz has more power than Silva! (wink wink)

      • natpaukar7

        Agreed

  • Jon Doe

    idk.. Silva is what now.. 38/39? Without any trt and coming off a brutal injury. I got Diaz, just because..

    • Sean

      Silva was never on TRT.!!! And if you don’t care don’t watch the fight or read the article.

      • Jon Doe

        Thank you captain obvious!

        • Sean

          Well don’t be an idiot and write it if you don’t want to be called on it you moron!

          • Jon Doe

            “without trt” meaning trt is no longer available for older fighters? Instead this translates to you as Silva “always being on trt”? How can you not get that?

            smh…

          • TheCerealKiller

            I get what he is saying. Why bring up TRT? He was never on it and doesn’t need it. He doesn’t need to cheat to beat this chump.

          • Jon Doe

            because he’s OLD and trt “use” to be available for older fighters, thats why it was brought up, that option is no longer an option. I dont understand why that is so hard to comprehend? He’s OLD, TRT is no longer available and he’s coming off of a brutal injury. What part of this is so confusing? How does that translate into Silva “always” being on trt?

  • macarrech

    how things are going in the ufc with the injuries, nothing is sealed until the ref. yell “fight”!!!

  • uncle

    This could go down like Silva vs Leben but I’m hoping
    that it will be competitive and insane.

    • Lawdog1521

      Yeah… odds are on the first one.

  • mmalive

    Silva’s tuneup fight.

    Diaz will be a good test for him.

    Silva will make a run at Weidman before he retires.

    Silva might move up up to light heavyweight and make title run there.

    Silva is still a threat at both 185 and 205 lbs.

    • deepgrim

      i think anderson may make the move up personally- this is a big money fight but i wouldnt have thought it would do much for andersons title prospects at 185 given diaz usually fights at 170. plus he has had 2 losses to weidman and given there is a list of contenders i think it makes more sense to go to 205

    • Wolf Ticket

      We don’t know that, we haven’t seen him win a fight in almost two years, and he is still half year away from this fight. Who knows what Silva shows up.

    • Kris-tyahn

      Silva would get crushed v.s Any top 5 at LHW. Jones, Glover, Gustaffson, Anthony Johnson and even Phil Davis b/c of his size, strength & most importantly his wrestling.

      • natpaukar7

        I am very worried about his leg however, there is no evidence to suggest silva would have any trouble with anyone at 205. If silva is still as good after the break he kos any lhw perhaps besides Anthony Johnson.

      • Baller31

        No, he wouldn’t. That’s an ignorant statement. Maybe jones can beat him–just maybe–but that’s it

  • Ian Price

    If Diaz wins (I’m being realistic here, anything can happen), should he be given a title shot at WW? Of course Weidman will lay on him easier than a bully on a nerd in grade school, so maybe Dana will let him go down in weight since it’s more his weight anyway (I am guessing he could even make lightweight?!)

    • TheCerealKiller

      If Diaz wins, a lot of people are going to claim Silva is the next Chuck Liddell. I will be one of them. I have yet to see him beat a top ten guy in his prime.

      • julian moran

        So.. if Diaz wins, you will be calling Silva a has-been; and you justify that by “I have yet to see him beat a top ten guy in his prime”. Is your comment not, but admittance of your bias and being a Diaz hater? Try adding a little intelligence in your reasoning if you want to be taken seriously.

        • TheCerealKiller

          Look at how fast Chuck fell from glory, it happens. Silva is 39 years old, it will happen to him at some point. As for Diaz, I have yet to see him beat a top ten guy in his prime. That’s just a simple fact.

          • Joe

            You are right when old man time catches you it is fast and can turn the goat into a has been. If Diaz beats Silva I’m with you on saying it’s time to hang em up. However I’ve seen nothing that says Anderson’s time is up. Weidman beat Anderson twice, but neither of those were without controversy. The first time he connected and dropped Anderson, normally no one would say that’s controversial, but the three punches before the ko were not in the same zip code as Anderson’s head, the second fight was a fluke with the leg break, and anyone that follows kickboxing knows what kind of fluke that was. Chris is the champ and deserves it, but Anderson is still the best fighter on the planet in my eyes until he gets beat clearly. That being said I’ll be pissed if he gets another spot at Chris just for beating Diaz, he needs a win over a top ten and a top five at minimum to earn another match with Chris.

          • TheCerealKiller

            Love it. Anderson should move up or make the fights with the guys that could never get to a title shot… Bisping.

          • Baller31

            He lost every round to Weidman in dominant fashion—striking and on the ground. Can’t believe there are still a few haters calling it a fluke. It was 2 strait ass whoopings, doesn’t get any clearer than that

          • Dice

            You are a very irritating little bugger around these articles but somehow you always make good points.

          • TheCerealKiller

            I hope Anderson is not at that point, I love watching him fight.

      • Drock420

        Hater Alert! Hater Alert! Diaz admitted Hater Alert!!

        • TheCerealKiller

          It’s no secret.

  • Darin

    I’m glad to see Nick has the sense to take this fight. Being called out by Anderson was a Godsend for Nick, he would have been a fool to not take it.

    I’m not a big Diaz fan, but he could win this. Anderson is pushing 40 and coming off 2 nasty losses. If both guys go back to their old ways, the in-cage smack talk could be epic.

    Or, maybe they’ll just look at each other and do the “come-on” hands for 25 minutes…..Silva doing karate stances, Nick holding up middle fingers…

    If Diaz wins, it might make sense to set up a rematch with Lawler which would be awesome to see.

    • Kris-tyahn

      Pretty sure Diaz called out Anderson years ago & even this year, and stated that he only wanted title fights or HUGE payday fights! which is why Anderson mentioned Diaz’s name, b/c this is a perfect welcome back fight for Silva. Stand up vs. a guy with no head movement or footwork, no power & most importantly….. NO WRESTLING!
      Diaz getting fed to the shark, like Forrest & Bonnar did, b/c EVERYONE knows what Diaz is going to do, he only has 1 gameplan, which was especially evident in the Condit fight.

  • Baller31

    This will be the most hyped UFC fight ever. Can’t wait to see it.

  • Manuel Lopez

    Silva vs Nick D. announced. What a bullshit fight… mismatch.

    • Anonamous

      How is it a mismatch fight? Both guys are coming off back to back losses.

      • Manuel Lopez

        ONe guy is a regular Welterweight. The other is a middleweight that has easily fought in the light hw division.

  • Yeehaw

    Horrible match-up for Diaz. Doesn’t matter how old Anderson is. Diaz is an aggressive fighter who moves forward, no footwork, no head movement, and no power. Yet, he’s going against one of the greatest counter-strikers of all time with fantastic footwork and head movement. It’s going to be Silva/Leben all over again.

    • asd

      Horrible match-up for Silva. Diaz constantly presses forward without giving you much space, at the same time not commiting to the punches enough for the counterstriker to find a moment to attack. Silva couldn’t punch Weidman in the face once FFS. Diaz is deadly accurate and Silva hasn’t got the chin anymore..
      It’s Diaz who has the iron chin and legs, so Anderson won’t be able to take his momenum away with patty strikes.

      • Kris-tyahn

        Yeah, all that coming forward worked wonders vs. GSP! But you think he’s going to just walk forward vs. Silva?!? BAHAHAHA okay, welcome to MMA! “Iron legs” = NO such thing, are you mentally challenged, b/c if so, I apologize, if not, then you’re not very smart, therefore….. WELCOME TO MMA!

        P.S let the adults do the commenting!

        • asd

          Oh yeah, because Silva threatens his opponents with takedowns like GSP.
          Get a new brain, pal.

    • Drock420

      Right the ONLY fighter to KO Robbie Lawler has no power.

      • MuayThaiFood

        That knockout was more about placement and the fact that Lawler was leaning into the punch with his chin up after throwing his punch. Nice shot but that doesn’t make Diaz a power puncher. It was much like Anderson’s KO of Forrest Griffin. Even though Anderson has power it was not a power shot that knocked out Griffin. Anderson has many more KO’s to his credit than Diaz though, against bigger men and not only by punches but knees, flying knee, elbow, front kick. He has more and bigger tools in the striking department and that is where this fight is going to be decided. No way Nick wins this fight. He can’t beat the the top guys in his own weight class so what makes anyone think he can beat the GOAT at 185. This is about making PPV money for Dana, Nick and Silva…that’s it. Think about it, what else could it be. Anderson isn’t going to be in a better position to go after a belt after he wins and Nick can’t win so what else could it be?

        • Kris-tyahn

          Yeah Diaz KO Lawler how many years ago? And how many more KO’s has he had since then?!? That’s right, all that power…. bahahaha! Like you saod, MTF: it was a bout placement, same with Silva on Forrest, and even Weidman on Silva. Weidman is strong, but the punch that he landed to KO Silva wasn’t a “power” punch by any means!

          • Lucas Freire

            Though I’m starting to believe Weidman has quite heavy hands. Seeing his punches hit is like seeing Aldo’s low kicks. They just make that sharp “Pow!” sound. lol

      • earlsimmons

        stop trolling you clown.

      • uncle

        Who has more KO’s Silva or Diaz ?
        he knocked Lawler out and still never
        became champion in the UFC.. if they
        fight again he would put Nick on his
        a** you are really reaching to bring
        that up.

        • Chicago

          What i think Drock420 was trying to say is that Nick does have KO power. Just not the 1 punch KO power that AS has. Comparing Nick to AS is a bit unfair.Hell comparing 99%of any of the fighters to AS is unfair to them. He was on a whole different wavelength for such a long time.

          • uncle

            It still doesn’t make sense to bring
            up a KO ten years ago .when its
            2014 It’s sad its like that’s his only
            win that even mean anything 10
            years ago. tell me a top guy he
            KO recently.

          • Lawdog1521

            That’s just it. That was literally the last ranked fighter he beat, and Robbie wasn’t ranked at the time.

            There’s this myth that Diaz is highly skilled because he’s had exciting fights. He’s had exciting fights but every quality opponent he’s fought, he’s lost too.

  • http://batman-news.com opposition13

    I think Anderson’s frame is a little bit bigger than Diaz, speed and accuracy is on Silva’s side….Hope to see a knockout from either one….

    • Kris-tyahn

      “I think Anderson’s frame is a little bit bigger than Diaz” – “a little bit bigger?!?” If a little bit, you mean significantly bigger, then yes, “a little bit bigger” – Silva is a MONSTER MW. Silva will have size, strength, reach, speed, skill, accuracy etc. etc. etc. The ONLY thing Silva does not have over Diaz, is cardio, but Silva’s cardio has never been an issue, though it will be over a year since he’s fought & he is coming off of a gruesome leg injury.
      Still, Silva should easily win this fight.

      • Sir_Roy

        I think Diaz’ BJJ is demonstrably better. But yeah. Good luck taking Silva down so it’s a moot point really.

        • Lucas Freire

          Adding to that, it’s Diaz’ guard that is dangerous. So, unless he’s able to set up a flying armbar/triangle or pull guard I don’t see this fight going to the ground.

  • Biz

    This is a horrible fight for silva. Lose lose all the way. If he wins he beat a guy he should of. If he loses retirement time.

    • Kris-tyahn

      Yeah, he’s not losing to Diaz, unless he cracks his leg in half again, other than that or some other fluke, Diaz is going to get busted up! I’m not a Silva “fan” or Diaz “hater” – I’m just realistic!

      • snap or tap

        Agreed. Nick has little movement with his feet, he’s all about the jab which is predictable! Is target for Ando. I think a few head kick and good boxing should do be enough for the points win

    • Lawdog1521

      From a business perspective, yeah, Anderson doesn’t gain anything in this fight. But Anderson has openly voiced his dislike of Diaz before, and that serves as motivation.

      So, Anderson will come in looking good for this fight because he”s going to enjoy beating Diaz to a pulp. Basically the Sonnen II fight. Only Diaz can’t wrestle… so more like the Silva/Griffin fight.

  • julian moran

    Silva wins this, but it would be interesting if Diaz won. Though Diaz has no chance against a a wrestler like Weidman; who is about twice his size.

    • deepgrim

      if he wins i think they would be more likely to do a title shot at 170 were he has more business, especially if lawler beats hendricks- he will own that win over him all them years ago that alot of people talk / debate about

  • Drock420

    Oh god, as much of a Diaz fan I am, he will lose this fight. He’s just too small, Silva just has too much size on him, he also has reach on him too if I’m not mistaken. Only way I could see Diaz winning is if Silva gets tired an he takes advantage of it. Which I don’t think I have ever seen Silva tired in any of his fights.

    • Sir_Roy

      While I too believe he loses … he’s not that small. He’s 6′-0″ and has fought at 185 lbs before. Keeps himself lanky to fight at 170 lbs. Silva is too elusive to fall for Diaz’ pepper striking style. I see Diaz going to sleep in this one.

      • Chicago

        I think that AS will win to but wouldn’t put $ down on the line for it. In the last 12 months their has been a huge shake up in MMA with 12:1 underdogs winning fights and winning belts.

    • asd

      Well, you ARE mistaken, troll. They are virtually identical in size and reach:
      Silva – 6’2″ 77″
      Diaz – 6’1″ 76″

      Diaz has more reach than the likes of Belfort, Franklin, Maia, Sonnen, hendo and all of these MWs, who usually have a 71″-74″ reach.

      • Drock420

        Dude whatever, Silva is a big middleweight, I was right about the reach, he has a 1 inch reach advantage which is more, idiot, you pointed it out yourself. Just because they are around the same height doesn’t mean they are the same size. Silva is bigger, hes a huge middleweight. you pretty much showed me in YOUR comment that I am right. You must be retarded.

  • Maddawgmar

    My question is will Silva be allowed to fight with that rod in his leg? He essentially has a metal reinforced shin. That is like holding a roll of quarters in your fist and punching, it’s gonna be an unfair weapon.

    • blob

      very good point.

    • MuayThaiFood

      The rod is to stabilize the injury and speed healing not to add “metal reinforcement”. It is titanium which is very light, it is inside the bone not on the outside of the shin, and it is hollow. Silva will not be gaining any advantage with it. It is NOTHING like holding a roll of quarters in your fist.

  • Your Mother

    I predict Silva KO’s the junkie within one minute. Sio much for competitive fights.

    • fsunoles10

      the junkie? yeah you’re not a retard or anything.

      • Your Mother

        Nice grammar… and I’m the retard. LOL!

        • deepgrim

          i think the retarded statement you made is worse than your perceived lack of grammar in his statement. And by the way you spelt “so” wrong in your first comment. I guess people in glass houses can throw stones. I hope my grammar is up to your standard sir

  • anonmoose

    Great fight if you think about it, 2 fighters that bring in the “casual” fans. One guy is a legend, the other reminds you of that punk back in the day that terrorized the neighborhood. Silva’s gonna box and put on a show, Diaz can take punches and keep coming, man, it’s gonna be good. (Unless Nick smokes 1 too many joints.)

  • Hugh Shakeshaft

    Did I miss where it says what weight they’ll be fighing at? It must be 185. Can someone confirm this?

  • Corey Hutton

    Makes me want to puke calling a broken leg a loss. Like Chrissy pissy actually meant for that to happen and it wasn’t a freak accident.
    Wins by injury are pathetic and make a joke of the sport, Much like having Chris or Rhonda as champs.

    • Maddawgmar

      Sounds like the only pissy one around here is you? Question for ya, if Weidman had picked Silva up to slam him and Silva put his arm down to catch himself and his arm snapped, would that be a legitimate injury victory?

      Did you even watch the fights??? Don’t you know that Weidman beat silva every single round, in every aspect of mma? Get a clue

      I disagree, if you punch someone and break their jaw, you win. If you strike someone and cut them so bad they have to stop a fight, you win. If you check a kick and the leg breaks, you win etc, etc. The same as saying “he got a lucky punch” as a excuse for losing. Fact is no punch luck, it is just expected that not every strike is going to produce a ko. That is why guys act surprised when they get one. In the end that is what they set out to do every time they fight

    Nick Satan Diaz ain’t beating Anderson Silva. Satan Diaz couldn’t beat Condit.

    Nick Evil Diaz doesn’t belong in the UFC. No class just a moron. ignore this disease and move away from the sickness that is Diaz.

      Was it your mom or your girlfriend, or both, that nick banged??

    “I think that would be a great fight for people to see because he has my type of style”…

    Yeah sure Nick… he has your type of style all right… Enter sandman kind of style.

    Here’s a fun stat that probably won’t make the promos. The last ranked fighter that Nick Diaz beat was Robbie Lawler, who only recently got ranked. And that was in April of 2004.

    In fact most of his opponents don’t even have 50/50 records.

      haha you been going around mma sites posting the same exact thing. you really lack that much of a life? regardless of how butt hurt you are about this fight a bunch of people are excited for this fight so just stfu and enjoy it. no matter how good something is you’re always gonna have some little girls whining.

      • Lawdog1521

        On the one hand, I’m flattered you’re following me around. On the other hand you’re a Diaz fan so you obviously have no taste.

        And you didn’t refute what I said. Mainly because you can’t. Diaz is a can.

        • The guest of guests

          I’m not a Diaz lover, but I’m not a Diaz hater like you. No one cares to hear you and the other million Diaz haters whine about every fight he gets. Don’t like the fight, don’t watch it. Anderson has beaten cans and good fighters just like many other great fighters, what’s the difference between them fighting ‘cans’ then and now? Everyone’s always going to complain about matchmaking, but if your hatred for the Diaz brothers blinds you from the reality that this is business ethics then I feel sorry for you.

  • Lawdog1521

    I wouldn’t call Diaz’s greatest win in a decade washed up. BJ’s record is 1 win in the last 7 fights.

    Oh wait, that is washed up.

    So, that makes Nick, who hasn’t beat a ranked fighter in over ten years a… what’s the word? Oh yeah, a can.

    Nick, Props up to you man.

    Holding out until Uncle Dana paid you what your worth.

    Uncle Dana is making money off you and you are going to make money off him. Cool man.

    To all the Daiz brother haters out there. You guys are clueless about these guys and business.

    Uncle Dana knew that he will line his pockets full of cold cash.

    Hence, He caved in and signed slick Nick to a 3 fight deal.

    If Nick sucked Dana would have not signed him for 1 fight let alone 3 fight contract.

    Nick, smoke weed but just do not get caught man. Clean your system before and after fights.

    War on Diaz brothers from Stockton 209.

    Nick will give a good test for Silva’s return.

    Da Spider will come out with hand raised in end.

    way too many good hard working deserving kids that need big fights in the UFC instead of that blight of humanity Nick Diaz. Diaz should be ignored.
