St Pierre v Diaz? Yes I want to see this fight. I dont what it is but I like watching the Diaz brothers fight.
 
2013-01-09 02:08:40 PM  
Diaz will get ruined by GSP, he fights the exact style that neither Diaz brother can handle. He will then probably rage quit MMA again. Used to really like him but he's turned into the biggest whiner in MMA. Having said that I bet half these fights won't happen due to injuries etc
 
2013-01-09 02:11:05 PM  
I predict exactly 3 of those fights will actually end up happening.

I honestly didn't think that many people were looking forward to Jones/Sonnen. I think Jones wrecks him.

Unless that's why people are looking forward to it.

Diaz will lose, but find a way to declare himself the real winner.

Because it's an interesting fight. Pride was always popular because they put on interesting fights, regardless of the quality of the competition. Affliction was viewed the same way. UFC lacks of interesting fights any more. The last they had was Lesnar/Overeem, but that was overshadowed by Lesnar's awful health situation. Prior to that you're talking about Liddell/Ortiz, Couture/Silvia(Couture unretires to make heavyweight not boring again), Shamrock/Ortiz, etc. Velazquez/Overeem looks interesting at least

It's because he kept walking forwards. And he swore a lot and raised his hands. That automatically means he won the round.

The fact that anyone thinks that Diaz GSP is going to be a good fight is just a testament to the intelligence of the average UFC mouthbreathing fanboy.

Hendricks Diaz would be a better fight, but neither of them can compete with St. Pierre.

Good fight? No. But watching Diaz get demolished and put in his place is worth the price of admission.

So much this....I'm no huge fan of GSP's style but he is a great fighter. That being said if Diaz isn't spending every waking second on take down defense he has smoked WAY too much pot. Keep GSP on his feet for your only chance of winning. But it will still be awesome watching Nick (I could be a boxer) Diaz getting jabbed repeatedly in the face over and over because he is too proud to block.

Wrestling has always given Nick Diaz fits. He lost to Sherk, Parysian, and Sanchez in his first UFC run. Personally, I don't think he developed the skills to deal with wrestlers, he just started fighting in smaller talent pools.

Add that to the fact that Nick is willing to fail drug tests (I know he has a prescription card, and I think the laws are BS, but that's besides the point) and he's willing to skip press conferences, and you have a guy who just isn't willing to do whatever it takes to be champion. That's what separates him from the GSPs, Jones, Silvas, and Aldos of the world.

He doesn't have to admit it, the swelling on his face will say it all.

Dana will find a way to give us less, tell us it is more and we will watch it anyway.

Watching Rousey collect arms is the reason I will purchase a UFC PPV for the first time. Just sayin'.

Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz UFC 158
Chael Sonnen vs. Jon Jones UFC 159
Anderson Silva vs. Michael Bisping/Chris Weidman TBD
Frankie Edgar vs. Jose Aldo UFC 156
Cain Velasquez vs. Alistair Overeem TBD
Ronda Rousey vs. Cristiane Cyborg Santos TBD
Georges St-Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks TBD
Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson TBD
Benson Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez TBD
Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira TBD

1) Jones is going to fight 3 times in 2013? I don't see this happening. One of his opponents will get injured. I doubt it will be Sonnen. In fact, I think at least 5 of these fights just won't happen, due to injury, suspension, or Diaz getting cut prior to his fight.

2) Dan Henderson didn't fight in 2012. That's total bullshiat. I hope he doesn't have cage rust.

3) I'm really looking forward to the Henderson/Melendez fight. Henderson is a very intelligent fighter, and I enjoy his fights.

4) Edgar/Aldo has the capability to be a decent fight, but I think this is going to be a disappointment.

5) I'd like to see Jones/Silva, as they're quickly clearing out their respective divisions. There's a chance this could happen; Silva ain't getting any younger, and Jones is going to have to either go up or down at some point.

Everyone would, but it won't ever happen, no matter how many empty promises Dana White makes.

I don't think Diaz getting cut is going to stop him from fighting. Unless I'm being naive. I'm new at this MMA stuff.

Jones/Silva- that's it.

They should. If they don't, well that's boxing.

Extremely naive. If he gets cut in training bad enough he can't be cleared to fight combined with the fact that Diaz has a history of cuts going so far to have surgery to shave down his bones in an attempt to stop getting cut so often.

Ah. I didn't know that. I thought the fighters just used the cut as an excuse to not fight.

Sonnen/Jones will be a horrible waste of money...a disgusting blowout of epic proportions...

Terribly dissapointing considering they're basing a whole season of Ultimate Fighter on their "so-called" fued.

Sonnen will end up being destroyed by Jon Jones. First round type of assault...
At a distance, Sonnen will get murdered by jabs and leg kicks.
In close, I honestly don't think he'll be able to get those long legs together in order to take him down. Jones will sprawl or simply spread his legs wide enough and form such a strong base, Sonnen won't be able to break it.
Add to that, the VICIOUS elbows he'll be delivering everytime Sonnen comes close...

It'll be embarrasing.

Nope. Elbows can leave a vicious cut. Watch Joe Lauzon's last fight if you want to see it in action

If White cuts Diaz from UFC, he ain't fighting GSP. White has cut people for a variety of things- all things Diaz has done or is capable of doing. You know, like not showing up for pressers, not showing up for a fight, testing positive for something, just generally being a douche. Don't get me wrong, douchiness aside, I like the Diaz brothers but they both have a screw loose.
