Something I notice no one posting here seems to know: Competing in extreme
distance events, like marathons, triathlons creates a lot of slow twitch
muscles. The Diaz brothers, contrary to what many think, are not slow
because they smoke dope, it’s because they have very little fast twitch
muscle. I actually originally learned this while training in China. I have
spent the rest of my life watching as this played out in the ring as well
as places like playing softball. It’s very obvious.
Diaz was over rated and so was his brother. We all know that now. He
coulndt do shit against gSP and nate got man handeled against henderson. ”
people dont realize how good nicks ground is” – rogan. Hahahaha he froze
He’s actually a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu, and people usually don’t take him
down because his Jiu-Jitsu is so good. His punches don’t look powerful
because he’s technical and disciplined with his strikes, which pays off for
him in the end because his cardio is ridiculously good from running
triathlons and shit. Most guys can’t keep up. I like his fighting style.
I’m not trying to argue or anything, just saying. =]
I’m as calm as can be, you’re trying to judge my state of mind foolishly.
But it’s been nice, you made me watch every fight I didn’t of Nick Diaz. I
start to like what he does even if it’s not as strategic as some others.
The guy sure got heart, determination and a very good chin.
I might pick little things but bitching should be a term applied to your
own way of arguying. Telling me to STFU, saying that anyone that judges him
personally is a fucking idiot. You’re disrespectful dude. No one is a
fucking idiot by judging others even in a harsh way. Most of the humans are
fucking idiots if we judge people the way you do. You just judged those who
judge him personally not even knowing them personally….
Sorry, re reading I can understand the way you were thinking when you wrote
that. But still ”you don’t like him” is different from ”you don’t like
his way of fighting”. You could be mre precise considering that English is
my third language and that I know 5 total. So no, my linguistic
intelligence is not so low, I think.
By one dimensional I mean he’s a standup fighter, that’s about it. He’s not
a strategy guy that changes strategy or adapt much to an opponent, even Joe
laughs when he says he would do things differently. That’s what I mean by
one sided, I didn’t say he knows only one discipline. You can practice a
thousand ways of fighting and still use only one strategy. I should then
say he’s a single strategy guy so I might not shock you.
Exactly, you don’t know him personally, you know his fight style so that’s
what I meant when I said you don’t like him. If you’re gonna pick at and
bitch at little things that aren’t even mistakes on my part, that’s just
the result of your very low linguistic intelligence.
Like I said, Nick isn’t a smart game planner, he just sticks to his style
of fighting, and that’s what he stands for. I respect that more than if he
were to start playing it safe to win point scoring decisions all the time.
He just sticks to his style and comes to fight every time. And I don’t
think you know what a single sided or one dimensional fighter is… Being
one dimensional means you are only good at one aspect of the fight, one
martial art. Nick is good at boxing and jiu jitsu.
Just to show you why I think he’s single sided, near the end of the
interview, when Joe is asked what would Nick do if there was a second
fight. He says: he would do things differently, with different strategy
then LAUGHS and says no he would just give him less opportunity, throw
himself into the fire more. Throwing himself into the fire more. I think of
it as being more offensive at the cost of defense AGAIN. Less defense =
more opportunities, but that’s my opinion.
Sorry for my english, it isn’t my main language, I’m trying really hard and
I know you understood my point. If you really read just fine, then stop
saying things I NEVER said. After all that if you can only attack my
grammar well… thanks anyway.
If you can find ONE time I said: I don’t like nick Diaz, I’ll give you
100$. And you come up with answers like: I read just fine. I said I don’t
like his way of fighting, that I don’t see him the way you do. I can’t like
or dislike the guy, I don’t even know him personnally. I’m only discussing
his way of fighting with you and you’re getting SO personnal into it,
thinking I’m saying untrue things about HIM, his integrety as a human
being. Please, stay in the context of MMA.
In the context of MMA, which I see as professionnal fighting, even if it’s
only a strategy to be a thug, I think of it as unprofessionnal. I do not
think he’s a bad human being, I just think his way of fighting is
unprofessionnal and one sided, the reason why he has to resort to taunting,
bad attitude in his strategies to make his adversaries over commit
themselves and make them weak. It works, it’s just unprofessionnal, I think.
K so why are you going on and on about how you think this, and you think
that about Nick when you already said it’s just the way you perceive it and
I agreed that it’s fine? It feels like from my view, like you are trying to
convince me of shit, and it’s pointless cuz I see it differently than you,
yet I accept your view on it… I just said don’t say untrue things about
him. That’s it. Calm down please, you’re really looking foolish now.
Dude, that’s one of the exact points I make to other people that say Nick
is a disrespectful thug and shit. They can’t see that there is more ways to
perceive that and they act like it’s a fact that Nick is some bad human
