Thread: Dana White offers Nick Diaz a fight vs Lyoto Machida at 185.

  1. #1

    Default Dana White offers Nick Diaz a fight vs Lyoto Machida at 185.

    http://www.mmafighting.com/2013/8/14...oto-machida-at

    That is possibly the most frustrating match up ever for Diaz... He'll be waving Lyoto to come forward the whole fight.

    Read about this earlier and I agree with you Grizzly, if he thinks it was bad getting Condit to engage, I hate to think what he would be like with Machida.

    Diaz isn't a big WW though is he, Machida will be much bigger than him.

    Actually for the reasons above I suppose that wouldn't matter, he'd barely touch Machida in 15 minutes.

    When Nick was flirting with MW a few years back, Gracie said they'd put him in at 205 if the fight was right.

    weird fight?. You putting together a guy who is a non-technical striker/brawler who will be small for the weight against a bigger and far far superior technical striker. It's not as though they are doing style v style as in striker v grappler. This has LOSE all over it.

    Saying all that, will probably go and be fight of the night now :-)
    If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!

    haha yeah, could just turn into an epic technical war! but if i were an American thinking of whether to pay for a ppv, if i couldn't afford to get each one (which i couldn't, man, lend us a tenner?) i would blank this one.

    Think this fight has been nixed. Belfort turned it down too. I thought Vitor and he were mates anyway. Maybe Dana will now offer nick a fight with nate. Matchmaker/Troll.

    Ah good. He agrees with me now. knew he read my posts and valued my opinion.
