he realizes he cant beat Ellenberger, Hendricks, Koscheck, or anyother wrestler...he really resents the wrestlers..Kinda like Rampage feels


agree??

disagree, he stuffed a few of gsps takedowns which is alot more than most people can do, he also managed to take almost no punishment either, i say diaz would do much better against kos, and all those other wrestlers are below kos and gsp imo.

nick beats all those guys

in fact, look what lawler did to kos, stuffed most of his takedowns and tko'd him, i'd say lawler beats all those guys too, then loses to diaz

No love for Diaz but I generally agree with lozer - The fight with GSP would likely have gone a lot different if GSP never got Nick down. Kos, specifically has explosive double-legs but doesn't have nearly the ground game control-wise as GSP.

I'd take Nick over Josh, Ellenberger, possibly Hendricks too - in Johny's case may have the overall strength to control Nick better, the question is does he have the TD efficiency?

I don't think nick minds wrestlers as much as he hates them point fighting, and not hurting him, or trying to finish. he's frustrated with the goal of other fighters being to win, when it should be to KO or submit their opponent.

That of course is my opinion of someone else's thoughts.... Phone Post

Diaz decided to stuff takedowns and offered almost no offense on the feet and stopped moving forward because of it though. Phone Post

I think he is finished.

He said he does not want a part of the new up'n'comers, only a rematch with GSP, which is fkn ridiculous since he did not push the fight. Even standing up he was walking away and backwards at times..He got owned

Well I guess he finally got paid.....

I love Nick and all he stood for before this fight, but after this fight little part of me now thinks he's just trolling everyone, and am hearing the same ol'shit ova and ova

Out classed in every aspect of the fight v GSP, including boxing. Great athlete, but apunk who is mentally unstable.

Most of us watch him to see him lose, now that that has happened v popular fighters he trash talked it is not so interesting. Let Rory or Lawler give him one last beating before cutting him.

There's a blueprint for beating wrestlers Nick has to read and train. It's been writing by some Machida guy... Phone Post

He owes 12 years worth of back taxes...that is all the motivation needed to keep fighting.

Honestly I think he lives a simple life and probably thinks he can live the rest of his life off that last paycheck and whatever other monies he earns away from fighting. He'd rather just do him, and smoke weed all day. Phone Post

I suspect his whole purse will go to back taxes, interest, and penalties. If he wants money to retire, he's going to have to do a bunch more fighting.
