    I would love to watch RJJ Knockout Diaz. He would be dumb enough to try and trade with him too.

    Diaz would take RJJ down and submit him in less than 2 minutes.

    I agree.

    I honestly don't see this ending any other way than Diaz via submission. I don't think Diaz would be that much of an idiot to actually stay and trade with RJJ, and if he's close enough to punch Diaz he's close enough to be taken down or clinched.

    Diaz has a good chin. Diaz via sub before RJJ can get enough in for the TKO or KO.

    vs. KJ Noons, Mike Aina, Riggs, Karo...

    he's obviously an underrated striker, but his bjj is MUCH better than his striking. he rather bang than take it to the ground

    I think RJJ can hit a bit better than the people Diaz has fought so far. :hsugh:

    I like Diaz, both of them. They don't give a shit other than fighting.

    Would love for Diaz to be stupid enough to stand with RJJ, but we know it won't happen. :x:

    Dana is correct.

    The buys would be low and the fightpurse would have to be very high. The cost wouldn't justify the spectacle.

    That'd make it a lot easier to take him down :dunno: If he knows how to sprawl or throw knees that's different, but I've yet to see something like that yet. Probably has happened. Shooting is a lot different then two boxers bobbing and weaving that low.

    As fast as RJJ is i could see Diaz taking some vicious punches to the face when trying to shoot. Diaz really doesn't have a good shot, he just bends at the waist and puts his arms out to grab the persons legs. I think RJJ has a really good shot at winning this, if Nick Diaz wasn't such a tough sob i'd say RJJ has it in the bag. I mean think about how fast and hard RJJ is gonna be hitting with mma gloves on.

    If it was GSP or even Matt Hughes fighting him then that'd be a different story but Nick Diaz isn't good at controlling fights, he just does his thing wherever the fight takes him.

    I don't agree at all. You really think that's all he's doing? Have you ever had anyone grab your leg and walk you back with it? Tell me if that shit is simple. He is putting a lot of weight there and driving them fucking back dude. What will RJJ do then? fall on his ass? Sprawl? Pull guard? Diaz is a Blackbelt they don't just give those things to people who don't compete and he's won, and you start standing. I'm sure he's no noob in taking people down and that's not what I see when I watch Nick take someone down.
