nate diaz is very underrated


so is cerrone

both guys have very nice skills.
very well rounded.

i think cerrone might be more talented but i think diaz is a bit more schooled.

close diaz decision would be my pick if i had to go out on a limb, but i'd basically call this a pick em fight.

This is going to be an absolutely amazing fight.

My only wish is that it were five rounds.

hope Nate actually turns up for this fight. he seems to blow hot and cold. great matchup if Nate can make it competitive. Not really sure beating him moves Cerrone forward though but hey, he would rather fight than sit around for a title eliminator so props to him.

Cerrone is a beast man. Nate looked good against Gomi but standing with Cerrone isn't so smart. Knowing Nate, he'd welcome the fight on the feet. But unlike Guillard, Gomi and others. Cerrone will kick the **** out of them legs. :lol1:

Depending on the result of shogun vs hendo if it don't end first round ko and join diaz daley, kongo berry, and fedor hendo as round of the year, this will be fight of the year!

Like seriously, what other fight could possible top this besides hendo shogun? Both hate wrestlers. Both love to stand and bang. It just doesnt get any better then this! Cerrone has to press forward to get in range so hell have to be aggressive and throw alot cuz diaz got mad reach and range. Cerrone bringing the fight to diaz is like sending a kid to the candy store. diaz will love it! Now that their training with pro boxers the diaz brothers have arguably the baddest boxing in mma! Gotta edge it for diaz! Both bros to be champ by end of 2012!

The real question is which is better, Diaz's sub finishing ability or Cerrone's top control?

Dont forget Cerrone was taking people down and sharpening up his wrestling before the Oliveira fight.

Sure he's be ready to bang in the beginning but what if Diaz's reach is to much and he keeps peppering him? You really think Cerrone is just gonna stand there and not shoot? Especially with greg jackson knowing that wrestling is the diaz kryptonite?

I have now doubt that Diaz's defensive BJJ will keep Cerrone from doing damage but wrestlers have been tending to win as of late sorely for not getting submitted.

Cerrones wrestling has grown big time and he won in the exact same way against BJJ specialist Vagnor Rocha.

If it does go to the ground down Nate have that one armbar or triangle choke in him?

Cerrone is clear fave with the bookies

Makes sense i guess he is like 4-0 this year while Diaz is 1-2..

Should be close though.. the division is stacked

Thing about Nate's boxing is.... it will be neutralized by good muay thai.

Cerrone isn't just hands. We aren't talking Jamie Varner here. Cerrone actually kicks and when they land, it's like a buzz saw. I don't think he will even have to attempt a takedown. Hands < Kicks. It's that simple and when those leg kicks add up, Nate's power and ground game gets taken down a couple notches.

Then again. It depends on if Cerrone actually uses his kicks. Sometimes he uses them, sometimes he doesn't. It would be the best game plan to use though. Since Nate's takedown offense isn't that great.

i don't agree there necessarily, I think that hands can neutralize kicks in a way too. Nate isn't really a power puncher, most of his punches just pressure you to react and wear you down. he doesn't really have to coil with pawing punches like that, so i could see him shutting the kicks down.

Not sure though, this is really a toss up fight. Both of them bring it. I see Nate submitting him though.
