A really, really cool article that compares Nick Diaz's techniques with old-time bareknuckle boxing. Think it may have been posted before, but if not a must read.

RockyBullwinkle - nick diaz nut hugger, has there every been a more apt name?

Negative, sir. When I created my account, I was thinking of what to put as my screen name. Then, I realized that I'd write a lot of shit about Diaz, so much so that I'd just be labeled a "nick diaz nut hugger." I got the labeling out of the way. At least no one is surprised when they see my fanatical Nick Diaz posts/rants.


Just kidding, my good man.

I posted this a while back too.

It's too bad Jack Slack seems to be a Diaz hater, I'd like to read one of his comprehensive articles on Nicks style. Phone Post

Very nicely done.

I used to be a huge Diaz fan, until his knuckle-headed antics ensued. I get it, tough upbringing, social anxieties, etc.

He gets a bad rap but at one point you have to take responsibility for your own actions, especially when you're a grown man.

I hope Ceasar Gracie has the Diaz's best interests in mind, and helps him keep it together. Phone Post

Very interesting stuff.  My grandfather did a lot of bareknuckle boxing to supplement his income after WW2 because he came back, I guess you could say crazy, so he had a tough time holding down a regular job.  So he more or less lived off his pension from the British Navy as well as boxing matches that he could get around Newfoundland.  My Grandmother told me his longest fight was 21 rounds against a Scottish boxer that was travelling with a Circus.

Diaz bros are the shit, plain and simple. Shakespeare himself couldn't create better characters. They will go down as legends.

I could see a movie being made at some point too!
