  1. Dave says:

    I have more respect for nick diaz then any other man in the sport a true warrior with honesty and integrity. Its funny that people dont like him cuz hes not down with all the bs hes a fighter he just wants to fight

    • Jeremy West says:

      absolutely dave! dude is a beast in the ring and charitable…whats not to like. guy brings it EVERY time. all these haters can go fuck themselves.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Dave,
      You sir are exactly correct. I would pay to see Nick Diaz fight MMA or Bjj match win or lose any day of week before I would ever EVER pay to see all your hero GSP. Diaz like BJ, Hendo, Shogun is last of the REAL FIGHTERS in MMA. You pussy ass fans who are in love with Greg jackson and his pussy ass point fighting bullshit run and poke track meets can have all that bullshit win on points instead of fighting. I would rather watch Diaz wash his car than EVER watch GSP or Fitch do all their scripted ass pussy ass lay n pray and run and poke. I think WWE is more real than what your boy GSP and Fitch do compared to watching real fighters like Diaz. Screw all the FIXED bullshit judging thats gotten to where its pratically pre- arranged. Go back and watch Kampmann/sheilds, Bisping/Hamill, tell me how in hell could these judges get away with those RIPPOFF decsions unless someone like Dana white had a hand in making sure his favorate fighter gets the nod. You idiots just keep on hating on Diaz because of a little pot but then talk about your GSP, Sonnen like they are superhero’s when in fact half of their talent comes from a friggen needle.

      Most of you prob arn’t old enough to know that there has been corruption/payoffs in BOXING judging since late 1800’s so if you think for one minute that a sport that is based in Las Vegas can’t be corrupted you have alot to learn. Cecil Peoples and Doc Hamilton have both been involved in some of the most controversial decsions in MMA history. Helllo 2 judges on the take on same card can control outcome of any and all fights they want. Do you think for a minute either one of those guys EVER want to step on Dana whites toes. So if you’re a realist its real easy to understand how Dana’s favorite fighters always seem to win

    • nath says:

      well said dave ..so true hey

  2. Jay says:

    Can’t see myself paying for this but I’ll def look for it online

  3. Not You says:

    “Kayron” Gracie… -_- smh

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      I always thought all the Gracie names started with R except Caeser. Maybe they ran out of R names. I wouldn’t mind seeing Roger Gracie in an BJJ match. Suppose to be one of the best in world. I tell you one thing i bet you would never in a million years see GSP have the balls to step up and except a challenge in a BJJ match against the 185 lb world champion like Diaz is doing. Diaz walks around 180 lbs and GSP walks around at 200 lbs but he won’t even fight anyone at 185. This isn’t first time Diaz has taken a fight with a MW just like BJ.

  4. Ruben says:

    LOL its hilarious how they call this a “Superfight”….there is nothing super about it, and honestly it isn’t even a fight, its a grappling match

  5. James says:

    Lot of Gracies on the card…

  6. dynomania says:

    diaz is a good person at the end of the day. Should be a sick event.

  7. Pancho says:

    I got mad respect for the Diaz brothers. They go out there to fight and to finish fights unlike all these others guys pointfighting n’ shit. WAR DIAZ

    • Alex Daas says:

      +1

    • Mayor of Deviance says:

      Bullshit. The Diaz brothers go in as a jab match, followed by a taunt before going straight to the clinch, then try to wear you down. Don’t be fooled by the attitude. The Diaz brothers have a Fitch mentality when it comes to stand-up of just going for control and jabs. If it’s standing, there is no intention of finishing the fight in the Diaz brothers. Wake up already people. Go watch the BJ Penn fight again too. This hero worship BS is getting out of hand.

  8. hi says:

    is diaz modeling?

  9. Ronda shite says:

    nick diaz is my man :)

  10. anthony says:

    Fitch is a warrior, he don’t have the knockout power, so what? He is a wrestler, and has quite the record. Gsp has dominated everyone he has fought since becoming champ. Diaz is tough as nails and Idc if he is stoned when he fights, it doesn’t enhance his fighting. Some of these comments are over the top. T
    The ufc has the best fighters in the world. Yes, those decisions were bs, especially the bisping and hammil fight. I agree, diaz lost his last fight, he couldn’t figure out the puzzle. That would be like saying Machida is a bum. He is elusive and there is nothing wrong with that. Some fighters like to get hit, others don’t. Condit fought his fight, not Nicks’, and he won the fight! Diaz finished shamrock who was once one of the most feared fighters in mma. He needs to finish his fights. Black belt bjj, he should submit, instead hr wants to slap and punch when he don’t have the power to knock anyone out!

  11. fox says:

    First off just wanted to say kudos for nick.diaz and all of them for doing.that its.a.great thing now as far as ppl talking the point fighting system everyone needs to man the fuck up it your.fighters fault don’t blame it on.greg jackson or.the other fighters if gsp fitch or whoever can.lay on you.for three or five rounds or your getting baby kicks and jab to.the.death then your a dumb fighter for not.being able to adapt and you.shouldn’t.be In the octagon is it.pussy at times yes I will admit.but fighters have sponsors they wanna keep houses and cars and.familes to take care of with everything on.the line its win by any means you.don’t.like it don’t.allow.the fighter to do it like dana white said if you.can’t adapt to what your oppnent is doing then you don’t.belong in there period point blank

  12. Bjjallday says:

    No points. Submission only. Now that would be a super fight.
    I’m ordering this just to see the match between caio vs Jeff
