Sweet Che Guevara flag. I wish we had a flag of a racist mass murderer on the wall at my gym.

The sport is kind of moving away from sparring that hard, but that is 100% normal. I can't even begin to guess the number of times I've been knocked down in sparring, and I am no kind of high-level guy.

That wasn't a knock down. He was knocked out.


Flash knockout. On Queer Street for sure. Happens too much.


I don't ever spar like that anymore.

I don't enough brains to spare.

But I see guys who do and often at the gym they are told to tone it down unless they are in a fight camp.

Holy crap. That looks exactly like Nick. It was Nick. Sad to see. Nick should stay retired

He gets a standing 8 count for that in boxing. He gets finished off a few seconds later by any competant MMA fighter.

Not sure if that’s nick, but hes a lefty just like the guy in the video. The comparison photos sure look like him. Is that footage really a year old? The photos on boxer’s IG show him wearing the same shirt and as recently as a month ago. Source: @rolliesss on IG

You can go 1080 p and it's still hard to tell. I'm leaning no but i' not sure.

Thats not at all how Nick moves when hes sparring or the way he throws shots. Ive seen a ton of other videos of Nick sparring and thats not at all how he looks.

Could even be the boxer David Diaz who looks a lot like Nick.

Just saying that I think if it WAS Nick, this video would have blown up last year like every other one of these videos.

The lips, cheek bone, and eye shape/brow really give it away as Nick. I was really hoping it wasn't Nick. But the close up is irrefutable that it is Nick. makes me very sad to see. Nick is making the right decision by staying retired

It’s Nick. It was a good spar and he got caught, it happens. Not sure what people are so bummed about, these things happen Nick has a iron chin and it’s shown in the cage. In sparring people get caught and dropped regularly.

Haha this. I guarantee it’s not the first time he’s been dropped, all their other favorite fighters have been dropped too. Lol at getting emotional over nick diaz getting punched in the face while sparring

 I don't know if that is Nick or not. The guy looks a tad too small to be Nick, but its hard to tell. Whoever it is was badly rocked. That is Rolly doing the knocking out. He has gained a pretty good rep for being hard on sparring partners. Here is what started getting his name mentioned a lot, him sparring Ryan Garcia. He made it rough on the kid.

Iron chins dont last when you are getting KOd in sparring. People are bummed out because they see it as signaling the end of Nick. Hasnt fought in how long, and is getting knocked out in sparring now? It's the damage during camps that really ends a fighters career. sad to see, because of how many years during his prime he wasted away partying

I could've sworn it was Andre Ward who Nick was sparring, are you 100% sure?
