    [​IMG] Nick Diaz has verbally accepted to fight Marcelo Garcia at the next Dream show. (April 29th) Although Garcia inititially accepted the fight, there has been talk that the match will now be scrubbed. According to Dream promoters, Marcelo has now decided that he does not want the fight and it is unclear if Dream will be able to find an opponent in time for Nick to participate. Stay tuned.

    so they may not fight, Garcia might drop out...whatever

    it will be a good fight if it happens

    i think diaz would beat marcelo, he has a very long reach and marcelos takedowns aren't that powerfull. Marcelo should have gone Jacares route and fought in smaller shows first before comitting to something bigger. he is fucking himself over in his mma career.

    Diaz is the kinda guy who doesnt give a fuck, he'd prolly be dumb enough to fight marcelo on the ground just so that he doesn't look like a bitch.

    He's no slouch but he's no Marcelo Garcia but at the same time, a Korean nobody held off Marcelo in MMA so its completely different.

    Diaz has decent boxing and bjj is a little different when you are getting punched in the face. Diaz takes it.

    Marcelo wants to test himself but he knows the game, that's not a good second fight to take, lol.

    i agree that he should have fought in some smaller shows first, kinda stupid to jump in the deep end when you don't have to.
