Masvidal ko. I don’t see how Diaz wins this better bjj but masvidal has good submission defence. They are both good boxers but Jorge is faster and hits harder. Add to that how unmotivated an aging Diaz is and I think masvidal finishes him

^This. Masvidal is a better boxer than Diaz, and hits harder than anyone Diaz has faced in recent memory. Gamebred hands him his first TKO loss since Stephens.

im sorry but what kind of crack are you smoking? masvidal is literally nothing more than a puffed up 155er, he could hardly do anything against Thompson, did you also forget the snoozer of a fight where he did practically nothing to henderson? diaz takes this all day by UD.... thats IF the fight even happens

I actually thought Masvidal was going to be fighting NATE Diaz, not Nick. However Masvidal will still win, because Nick Diaz is a pile of ****, just like his brother, who has never and will never hold a belt or get anywhere near one. He hasn't won a fight in seven ******* years, has lost his last 3, and that was against the smaller husk of a man that was BJ Penn!


Jesus Christ, what a lightweight. Gamebred will totally ******* smoke Nick. He's basically a better version of him with classier boxing and ****loads more power.

Ho Slap vs Stockton Slap

My prediction: Diaz will go in there, entertain the fans while getting 30-27'd, claim that he won each round in the postfight interview, and then ride off in the Las Vegas sunset with his harem of women, never to fight again. 

I'm a Diaz fan and I think he's a legend, but I gotta keep it hundo

Sanchez might be a shot fighter on the feet, but he is still a beast on the ground. Expect three rounds of big brothering by the Nightmare...er...the Dream...wait, no....Lionheart.

Surprised Gall is such a favorite to win by submission. He could well win, but Sanchez has never been submitted and has faced better grapplers than Gall IMO.

not sure if Gall wins by sub but he's definitely going to win. Sanchez should have retired roughly three years ago.
