These two guys are so similar it's almost comedic.

They both:

Feel like they're under appreciated by fans

Feel under appreciated/poorly represented by the UFC.

Have their pre and post fight excuses for losing set up and ready at all times.

Dislike any fighter that doesn't just stand in the pocket and box with them (fight their fight).

Dislike and try to avoid wrestlers.

Criticize the punching power of their opponent.

Have retired from the sport only to come back to fight

There are more I'm sure...

For the record, I still think Rampage is less delusional of the two.

hmmm, maybe that's why their 2 of my favorites of all time. I think Nick is less cringe worthy though. that"yo breath stank" got real old.

Oh, they both go on and on about pride rules (I prefer pride rules too but I learned to let it go once the organization collapsed)

I disagree. Nick hates the spotlight and Rampage loves it. Nick trains extremely hard where Rampage has had a rep of slacking a little. Rampage is funny/entertaining as hell, Nick not so much. Rampage has worn the "Strap", but will never wear a Black Belt in BJJ which IMO is a huge accomplishment. But I get what you're trying to say OP....

Rampage has been more successful, at least in the UFC.

My friend pointed out that Rampage is actually always classy in the cage after a loss. He gave it to Machida and to Ninja in those wins, and admitted Jones beat his ass. It's only in later interviews that Rampage comes up with excuses (kind of like BJ). For ppl who don't follow the sport as closely, Rampage probably comes off as a good sport. Phone Post

Rampage has larger vocabulary, makes more sense and seems more intelligent...

As sad as that sounds... Phone Post

Rampage at least accepts when he gets whooped.

Diaz will never take responsibility for a loss.

Rampage has a much, much better resume. At least 3 levels above Diaz's accomplishments.

He's also less of a crybaby than Diaz

omega 2013 - Rampage=champ




Diaz=top 12-15




not even close
Technically Diaz was Strikeforce and WEC WW champ, even though one of them was just a paper title Phone Post
