are gonna fight
are you fucking serious?
Diaz vs. Zaromskis, Santos vs. Coenen title fights set for "Strikeforce: Miami" | MMAjunkie.com
yeah... zaromskis is a beast, but nicks got an iron will and iron chin
I been a giant fan of both these fighters ever since I seen each fight. Diaz boxing and jiujitsu is incredibly entertaining to watch. Whitemares kickboxing is equally heart pumping. This is gonna be one of the best fights in a long time assuming they both show us the real them. I'd bet on Diaz if I had to, but I cant even pick a real winner. Goddamn.
Shit is insane.
I love Strikeforce.
This fight is going to be fucking nuts.
Let's just hope Nick doesn't do his little "lower my hands and stick my chin out" routine against Whitemare. This is one night that little showboat should stay at him.
yeah diaz doesn't wanna stick that chin out there and end up getting decapitated like zaromskis' last three opponents
as you all know, im a huge nick diaz fan.... and i saw all the damage zaromskis did in the dream tourney.... but lets get something straight here
jason high 5'9
mach sakurai 5'7
Myeon Ho Bae 5'11
nick diaz 6'1
im not saying its impossible to kick a 6'1 dude in the face, in fact i could kick a 6'3 dude in the jaw standing... BUT its harder... nick always gives up the chin to hand strikes, but he is good at keeping distance, and im not sure ive ever seen him take a kick to the grill before
he knows who MZ is , he will train for it... he wont let himself fall to the same fate as the last 3... he is very fight smart
I could see scenarios for both winning, really. It's nice to see Zaromskis cro copping motherfuckers but dude's not invincible.
Diaz should try to fight a smart fight here and outpoint him imo.
diaz still to this day feels the burn of some strange criteria/scoring in the UFC from the fights with riggs, parysian, sherk
he has noted that he prefers to finish now if he can... but not neccessarily right away
nick is an endurance athlete with very good defensive BJJ and solid boxing... hes a good counter puncher with a nice chin
he is NOT a 1 punch or early KO guy and he is not like jacare, where he uses his BJJ offensively to win fights (unless he has his opponent worn down)
zaromskis has only gone to one decision, so we dont really know for sure what he has late since his late wins came against nobodies
nick , as long as he is not cut, gets better as the fight goes on
should be fun... i know ill cringe everytime nick eats one, and he WILL eat a few because he just allows for it
I see a trend lol
Like a guy slowly working his way up to cro copping hong man choi?
