    It's not about underestimating Diaz, it's just hard to overestimate Estima.

    I may have to look at some Estima vids, do any of you know of any shorter vids of his worth watching? Actually the first time I have heard of him ( not Roger tho).

    Nick Diaz is at least keeping active while he is suspended. This should be very entertaining.

    ^Tried youtubbing the guy...turns out there's a bunch of "lessons and how to vids", and only one "highlight vid" I've been able to find...none of greater importance, though.

    Today isn't a good innanet browsing day. =(

    it'll be fun to see the difference between a guy who has good jits when compared to other jiu jitsu competitors and a guy who has good jits compared to other mma competitors though.

    same as if diaz would've done a boxing fight against a legit guy, but without the dick measuring between the two sports

    Braulio is a 3 time world champion at black belt.

    He REALLY stepped his game up in 2009. He won the ADCC in both his weight class and the absolute class, submitting Andre Galvao with an inverted triangle in the 88kg Finals.

    Their match starts @ 0:59



    In the absolute class, he defeated much larger multiple time World Champions Vinny Magalhaes and Xande Ribeiro.

    Alexandre Ribeiro - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Vinny Magalhães - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    He also submitted Marcelo Garcia with a RNC at the 2009 ADCC absolutes. That was the second time he submitted Marcelo Garcia in 2009 alone.



    At the 2011, was crowned ADCC Superfight champion by beating Jacare. There's a small portion of their match starting @ 3:12.



    There are a few highlights, but they're old. Also, it's hard to find the FULL versions of the ADCC matches as Budovideos.com are insane copyright Nazis.

    Diaz won't stand a chance. Estima is considered one of the best black belts in the world. Diaz is just an average black belt. when I competed in worlds I got to watch him and he's superhuman. It'll be a wash.

    Every superhuman has an Achilles' heel. Not sure how well I should wish Diaz to locate it.

    Diaz will be a sick fight for him. Only thing I'm wondering is what is this guys normal competing weight class? Looks higher then Nicks, that may be his true advantage. If BJJ has taught us anything it is not to underestimate.

    Yeah, Braulio does have a size advantage as well. He's slightly taller than Nick, and usually competes @ 88kg(about 194 pounds). Their match is supposed to take place @ 180 pounds. Hopefully, Braulio isn't too drained from the cut.

    Here's an interview with Braulio regarding the Nick Diaz fight, training with the Blackzillions, and his upcoming MMA debut.

    BJJ Eastern Europe: Braulio Estima: "Nick Diaz's Jiu-Jitsu is very good. He doesn't focus on points but on submissions. This is going to be a great fight!"

    I'll keep the board up to date, and post a stream if one is available.

    Good man. What time is it at? Or does that link specify. I'm actually excited to hear the out-come.

    If Nick does well here I may have to take back my statement that Nate's better on the ground.

    The link gives plenty of details.

    It says the matches start at "7 PST", but doesn't say if that's AM or PM.
