I don't think that Condit has the power. Nick's chin and boxing is leagues above Hardy's

Jeremy Jackson got him in 2002.....

FOTY candidate for sure. WAR DIAZ!

I remember that, the ref stood above them and let Nick take like 20 unanswered shots on his back right? I don't even think he was unconscious after that. He has a chin made of granite

This is a sick ass card. The hype isnt there like how epic the hype would be with diaz vs GSP. But dont get it twisted THIS IS THE TEN TIMES BETTER FIGHT! All Condit and Diaz knows is attack and finish once they smell blood. Their ****in animals unlike softy GSP. They arent afraid to bang it out or go submission for submission on the ground. Its survival of the fittest. Whoevers more mentally fit and physically beast that night will win. I think Condit may try to be stronger and maybe wrestle him a bit but after seeing Diaz tear Bj Penn apart legitimizing himself as an elite WW. I gotta go with him. Hes just one nasty mother****er right now. Hes got that eye of a killer. Anything gets in his way hes tearin that ass up!

Pierce did a gay interview about turning into a gsp style fighter by fighting smart and dull but winning. However he cant hold Kos down. He will have to bang and grind it out. But kos is the faster athlete more accomplished wrestler. Itll be a ****in fight too that kos wins by decison.

Erik Koch is the man too. Think hes deadlier and as crazy as pettis on the feet but better.

I got Condit to win this one. He's explosive and he has good cardio.

Should be a guaranteed good fight.

Really? Diaz got starched? Not ref stop, but unconscious. Like Condit-Hardy?

A hispanic last name doesn't instantly mean mexican. Diaz bros have never claimed it and don't even express the culture of it either.

He didn't go out out, but he took like 20 unanswered shots. He has said that Jeremy is the only legit loss on his record...

Jeremy koed everyone in the tournament that night. Nick still didn't have his legs under him when they stood back up. Jeremy got his ass beat in the rematch and rubber match though....

There's something about Nick even when I think a guy is gonna over power his length and bjj come through when they need to and his boxing is out of this world for a black belt. Condit is tough but it's hard for me not to pick Nick. I think this is a better match up for Nick cause GSP's wrestling would of been the perfect defense to his bjj. Plus GSP is just a fighter with more of a winning strategy. It isn't always pretty but picking the way you know will win you the fight and sticking to it is championship fighting.

They are hispanic Americans of Mexican Descent.. Actually Nick stated on the TUF that he was a real Mexican unlike Diego Sanchez..I am also Hispanic American p
Of Mexican descent and grew up in ca li just like the Diaz bros. You dont have to be expressimg Mexican culture to be a Mexican. Its more commonly used to state your etnicity

lol, nah man. They aren't mexican. One thing about mexicans is, if they are even half descendant, they claim it out loud.

Diaz surname could be spaniard, cuban, puerto rican, venezuelan, argentine, etc etc etc. Doesn't insta-mean mexican.

and if it's spaniard.... it's actually white. :lol1:

WTF are you serious?? What makes you an expert on all things Mexican, Hispanic, or Spanish?? First of all I can care less if they claim to be Mexican Descent, But they are even if it bothers some people or some people want to think they are white!! They live In northern California and if you know anything about California you would know there are not very many Puerto Ricans, Argentinians, Venezuelans, etc ect. They might not claim to be Mexican because they were abandoned by their Mexican father and grew up hating him but the fact is they are Mexican descent so just deal with it homie, Plus if they were Puerto Rican descent they would of quit by taking a knee a long time ago.. LMAO J/K.. OH ad not all Spanish people are white there are some dark ass Spanish people also, especially the ones in southern Spain close to northern Africa... HAHAHA

Nicholas Robert Diaz is an american of mexican descent so he is as mexican as oscar de la hoya

I remember Nick Diaz calling Diego Sanchez a fake Mexican or something like that during the lead up to their fight, so obviously Nick is Mexican and on some level proud of it.

Anyways, I see this fight going much like Nate vs. Cerrone, except Nick will finish Condit with 5 Rounds to work with. Should be a fun fight though, and there's no doubt Condit will bring everything he's got; it just won't be anywhere near enough to put down a warrior like Nick Diaz...

I hope Diaz breaks Condits jaw yu know! The same Condit that came in as a replacement for a poor fighter to fight Dan Hardy in London and Knocked him Out! Pr1ck lol

Anyway, A 20 year old Rory MacDonald got the better of Condit for 3 rounds but Condit landed the knockout wid about 9 seconds to spare, otherwise he lost that fight n wouldn't even have had this chance at all.

Gonna be a Sick fight still. I'd rather see Nick vs. Georges every day over Georges vs. Carlos...
I reckon that's what Georges wants aswell after Nick called him out like dat after Penn fight

Lol, Gun fights gave me red k for saying Nick isn't mexican without proof. :rofl:


I've never heard him speak anything on being Mexican. But some people have and also cited sources and evidence. So I suppose he is. But still a joke for the red k.

This is easily going to be a sick solid fight of the year candidate early that will be hard to beat imo. I don't think it can possibly end early since both have rock solid jaws and crazy good juijitsu. Wouldn't be suprised if Greg jackson tried to make condit wrestle but i don't think he's strong enough to keep diaz down though I hope it hits the ground at some point since the submission and transition and scrambling exchanges would be absolutely sick like diego/diaz condit/kampman.

I actually see condit winning early until diazs punches start taking into effect and diaz definitely takes the later rounds. I think if diaz can't finish this will be an incredibly close and controversial scored fight. CAN'T FREAKIN WAIT!

Ive always said Nick and Nate are of Mexican descent, I mean they dont go around saying it all the time but its pretty obvious they are.. In the vid ,at min 2:22, you can see them as kids and they dont look anything other than Mexican...
