I really just hope this is the last we hear of Nick Diaz. I'm sure Dana will be glad to be rid of him after this too. He got his title shot, proved that he's not even close, and now needs to move on. If he wants to skip media days and mock his opponent who just thoroughly trashed him, then go have fun with that immature shit somewhere else. They don't need it in the UFC.

I wasn't surprised at all by the outcome of the GSP/Diaz fight. George just looks so much physically bigger and stronger than Diaz and he manhandled him just like I thought he would.

Diaz isn't a chump though, and what surprised me the most coming away from this fight was just the lack of offense from Nick. I don't know if the credit should go to GSP for stifling him or what but literally the only time I'd see him put combos together was when GSP had him in the muay thai clinch.

Was really hoping for Diaz to pull the upset with some sort of submission, but GSP and Co knew how to defend back roll into something.

Before the fight there was picture of GSP and Marcus Almeida "Buchecha". Until then I thought that Diaz could maybe slip something in, but the way GSP committed to his wrestling showed that he took a lot of lessons from Buchecha on how to stop Diaz's ground game.

I didn't find anything boring about watching GSP turn some scrub who claimed he was going to knock him the Fuck out and take his belt into a helpless baby. Seemed pretty damn entertaining to me. :lol:

Go ask Diaz why he didn't show up to fight.

I don't find Cruz boring. I find his ability to always get hurt and never defending his title boring. I like the figher but he should be stripped.

Clearly you are a GSP fan. You enjoy watching UD after UD that is your thing....fine. I'm not a just bleed fan. I want to see GSP take a risk and secure a sub or two on someone. GSP had SOOOOOO many opportunities to finish Diaz and he didn't. He rode out the UD as he always does. Boringly.

I'm glad I didn't pay for the fight and watched it via stream. I knew how it would play out.

Why should GSP take a risk if Diaz isn't taking a risk? The guy losing the fight should be the one going out swinging for the fences when he's down 3 rounds to none. I like seeing finishes too. But I will never understand why people blame the winning fighter for not providing one. I agree with what a lot of MMA writers are saying in that GSP needs someone to push him to fight.

Because as is, he's just finding holes in these guys games, and exploiting them. It's incredibly smart of him...but he makes these guys look like unworthy opponents...which gives the appearance of a "boring fight". Maybe Hendricks is the guy that actually challenges GSP and makes him dig deep. I'm just not going to get down on him for beating these "challengers" by the easiest means possible. It's on them to make it a tough fight.

When, exactly? I hope you're not talking about when Diaz would roll on all fours and give up his back, because if you think GSP was going to be able to get his hooks in and sub Diaz, you're wrong.

Annnd the Diaz camp is now whining that a potential 0.9 lb discrepency is the reason Diaz lost the fight. Can we just cut this asshole already?

http://sports.yahoo....36648--mma.html

I'm not even sure of the point they're trying to make. There's already a one pound margin of error for the scales. So, the assertion that the Quebec commission allows up to 170.9 seems irrelevant. Unless it's also implying that 171.9 would still be counted as 171 (which isn't a point the article or Diaz's "representative" makes). Even so, that is a ridiculously flimsy argument. Are they seriously suggesting that GSP planned to weigh 0.9 lbs over, because he KNEW that the commission would allow it? Now, Diaz's camp is demanding an immediate rematch or for GSP to vacate the belt. Fucking ridiculous. CUT...HIM...DANA.

Jesus Christ Nick needs to just go away. I would LOVE to see Dana cut him.

Not really related at all, but I had never seen the GSP Nexus 7 commercial before a couple nights ago, when someone linked to it in discussing GSP's acting chops for his upcoming role in Captain America 2. I found it hilarious, just thought I'd share in case others here hadn't seen it.

I respect the man as a fighter and understand he grew up in less than stellar conditions. However the excuse of everything and anything bad that had happened in Nick Diaz's UFC career isn't his fault has been used to the point of becoming parody in my eyes.

Are you guys watching TUF tonight? Any predictions? I only predict that we get to see Bubba cry for the 5th time this season.

I only get to watch it on Hulu, so I'm not sure when it will be up on there. But yeah, I hate Bubba. If he does actually fight, I'm hoping he gets his ass kicked.

Gustafsson is out for this weekends card. His training partner, Ilir Latifi, will be fighting Mousasi instead.

And the Nick Diaz jokes just keep writing themselves. Apparently, now Nick is saying he's "retired" unless he gets a rematch against GSP or a shot at Anderson Silva at 185. For someone who was shit on his whole entire life, he sure thinks he deserves the world. :roll:

I'll be honest. On one hand, I don't want him to jump yet another queue to get yet another title shot or deal with his pre, during and post fight antics. On the other hand, I would love to see him get whomped by Silva when he tries the "Come at me, bro" hands down taunt.

Watched this week's episode on a whim. Does Bubba always look like he's about to fear-shit his pants during fights or was that specifically for Hall?

So... I take it that no one saw UFC on Fuel 9?

I didn't, but a.) I didn't have time to do research because I had just come back from Maui, and b.) I needed to catch up with some sleep.

(Plus, I have been on an extended break away from betting.)

I did catch Invicta, tho. Michelle Waterson put on a Fight of the Year contender with Jessica Penne. Y'all gotta watch that if you didn't. Invicta is the second best MMA promotion right now.

Let's get this thread going again.

Matt Mitrione was suspended because he thinks its sick for a man to lie in order to beat up on women. I have lost all respect for UFC for this. Trannies are disgusting and a result of rampant drug use and an abusive childhood. Because Mitrione has an opinion that isnt all lovey dovey accept everyone for who they are even though they are borderline psychopath? What a sick world we live in. I wish they would let that tranny in UFC to fight some men and get his ass handed to him.

U MAD BRO? If you're fighting for a company that supports Gay/Lesbian/Transgenders you probably shouldn't go on a hateful tirade about it. Luckily for you, you're just a troll on the internet and you won't lose any paychecks for being a bigot.

Matt is allowed to feel like that (as are you) but he probably should have kept his opinions to himself, or kept them within an inner circle of people who feel the same way as him. I think he would have been fine if he said "He/She shouldn't be able to fight women" and cut it off right there, but the "lying, sick, sociopathic, disgusting freak" comment really left the UFC with no choice but to act.

There's really not a lot of positives to come from sharing your personal opinions publicly, specifically via Twitter, Facebook, etc. I don't work for a major company like the UFC or anything, but if I put racist or homophobic comments on my Twitter account and someone found out about them, I'm sure I'd be in just as much trouble.

I just had to go to sherdog to check that out. I don't think a transgender should be fighting women, but the way that Matt put it was very over the top. If he just stayed with his opinion about it being unfair to the other women and why he thinks so it would've been fine, but he went to far to not have the UFC make somesort of statement or have a reaction.

He is suspended, but honestly he wouldn't be fighting for at least 4 months anyways, so the suspension probably won't have an affect on him.

Pretty par for the course for UFC. Unless you're on Dana White's whitelist or Dana White himself, you're going to get dinged for stepping out of line on anything controversial.
