    Wow. One of the few times I've literally slapped my head in disgust because of a post.

    Muay Thai, sanshou, and western kickboxing are all similar, but they are three totally different styles with their own unique sets of techniques and point systems. Muay Thai emphasises knees and elbows, sanshou has throws and catch kicks, and western kickboxing emphasises kicks above the waist.

    nicks cardio and chin as well as his long frame at 155 make him a fucking menace for opponents

    he will trade with you for about 10 minutes, then when youre tired and equally as beat up, he will let you make a mistake out of frustration, let you take him down and fuck you ups

    nah, but I can't recall too many times he's really been rocked on his feet either. But I just think if Gomi can counter Diaz's shots, Frank should be able to do it better.

    Also, I might be wrong, but isn't Frank quite a bit bigger than Diaz? He was LHW champ, while Diaz is usually in the WW range. Could make a substantial difference in the grappling.

    Ionno, two tough mofos and two of my favorite all time fighters. Frank was one of the first MMA guys I actually kept up with. I was kinda hoping for Alvarez/Diaz, but this one is a fine replacement.

    Trust me, they're very different. I do Muay Thai, and watching sanshou guys drops my jaw sometimes.

    here, just watch this and tell me it looks like any anderson silva (mt) or cro cop (kickbox) fight you've ever watched:

    bro all i know is the kicks and punches are very similar in both mua thai and san thou, very few differences... san shou does incorporate throws/takedowns but the thing is that mua thai guys enter san shou events now with grappling training and alota schools that teach kungfu/sanshou teach strikes using elbows and knee's now... its different but its very similar is all im saying

    anyways diaz ftw!!

    im not even that martial arts literate and i can tell that sanshou is hella different from muay thai.

    that sanshou shit looks crazy as fuck though, any well known fighters use it?

    frank has been fighting at 185

    nick has been fighting at 155-160 BUT fought at 170 in the ufc

    im sure nick can put on weight , but that really plays against his strengths... he will be the smaller fighter in terms of sheer mass, but a few inches taller

    nicks grappling is pretty top notch, i think hes good enough to overcome the size

    it will be a war, i just dont get how dude acted like i was nuts to say nick could win the fight, the lack of respect for nick fuckin kills me

    The possibility exists that Nick could win this fight, but you made it sound as if Nick was going to completely TOOL Frank. If you believe that, you are fucking nuts, period.

    Anyway, the fight is now 100% official. Here's what's posted on Caesar Gracie's website.
