Shamrock vs Diaz this Sat night

Shamrock should destroy Diaz. My guess is that he will play with Diaz for a round and take him out in 2.

Thoughts?

Re: Shamrock vs Diaz this Sat night

Shamrock should absolutely murder him.

I hate Nick Diaz the person.

Ken was busted for roids. This is Frank Shamrock. My opinion is that Frank is one of the best fighters of all time. Not THE best, but one of them.

I just added showtime so that I can watch it Sat night.

Re: Shamrock vs Diaz this Sat night

I don't know what to think of this one. If Frank comes in with his own gameplan he should destroy Diaz. But with all the trash talking I'm afraid Frank will do what he did with Cung Le and try and prove he can beat Diaz at his own game. If that's the case he could still still knock Diaz out or open him up, but Diaz has a way of wearing people down with those peppering shots of his.

I expect a good fight either way, I used to hate Nick but now I can wait to see what those crazy Diaz brothers will do next

I knew Frank would get beat by Cung Le. Frank has good boxing and grappling. Cung Le is the best in the world at San Shou. San Shou is basically professional K-1 kickboxing with a little bit of takedowns, including some wrestling techniques. To beat Cung Le he would most likely have to take him to the ground and tap him out, ground and pound, whatever.

So keeping the fight standing would've been easy for Cung since he spent his whole career avoiding takedowns. He is also something like a blue-purple belt in BJJ as well.

That and Frank "didn't want to fight him because it would hurt Cung's career" at first. One thing I notice about Frank Shamrock is that he always talks about how he wants to fight people that he knows he will win against. Just my observation.

Diaz pounded Frank to a pulp for an unambiguous win. It was a good fight.

Re: Shamrock vs Diaz this Sat night

I knew I wasn't crazy, go Nick!! I love both fighters though, but I am so happy Nick won. I thought he would get killed, but I was rooting for Nick.

Re: Shamrock vs Diaz this Sat night

Must be the fierce Diaz cat's paw technique. I am amazed how they make that work for them.
