    Wouldn't give Diaz much of a chance against Woodley, personally. Underrated fighter.

    Seen McGregor's statement, *.

    Total disrespect jumping in the cage like that, needs to kop on. Moaning about the refs treatment of the ko'd fighter when he's jumping about the ring pushing into the downed man.

    Werdum and Covington were arguing at their Sydney hotel and Werdum skelped Covington on the head with a boomerang :56:

    He looks like he's packed on the weight and it would take a lot out of him cutting for his first fight back. He's * himself over playing the long game waiting for Conor. Gathie,Alvarez and Poirer are all winnable fights for Diaz but Woodley is likely to be too difficult a task for Diaz also it could well be a really dull fight.

    I don’t really like Covington, although I get the bad guy act. But why the * is Werdum always arguing with guys half his size.

    Diaz isn’t that easy a fight for Woodley. Diaz is a better boxer, Woodley won’t stand with him. But Nate isn’t easy to take down or keep down, even if you do get him down he’s dangerous off his back.

    Define how Diaz is a better boxer, from a technical standpoint?

    If they ever fight there is only 1 guy knocking the other out and it isn’t Diaz.

    He’s a better boxer, period.

    Woodley hits harder, that doesn’t make him a better boxer.

    I’m not disagreeing, I’m getting at the fact it’s a moot point.

    Diaz is a puncher of weak volume, Woodley blasts people’s face off. One is good for an * boxing contest the other is good for winning MMA fights.

    You said it wouldn’t be an easy fight and Woodley wouldn’t stand with him, are those facts as well?

    Move away from your strange argument, good move. Agreeing with me but still trying to argue :39:

    They are not facts because the fight hasn’t happened. That’s opinion. But nobody is denying Nate is a better boxer. Just like Woodley is a better wrestler and harder hitter. It’s not that far fetched mate.

    You said Nate’s style is good for amatuer boxing and Woodley’s is good for winning MMA fights. You’re lying to yourself if you’re saying technical boxers haven’t won MMA fights by boxing people. Such a strange statement.

    I said Nate is a better boxer than Woodley now I’m arguing that people can win in MMA by boxing... what the * :giggle1:

    * *. There's CCTV footage of Werdum punching Covington before he hit him with the boomerang and Covington is pressing charges :giggle1:

    Not only are they winnable fights but they are real good match up for the fans would love to see those fights.

    Yea the diaz brothers always struggle with wrestlers and agree it wont be an exciting match up. Will be round after round of Diaz been taken down and smothered. The only thing that is in favour of Diaz is that its a 5 rounder and he will go all day.

    Diaz is a good fight for Woodley agree Diaz has better boxing but disagree that Nate will be hard to take down and he is dangerous off his back v some fighters but not against a bigger more explosive wrestler like Woodley.

    You are a strange character.

    I said I’m not arguing who the better boxer is, I’m asking why him being a better boxer technically means it won’t be an easy fight for a bigger, better, more powerful fighter?

    Diaz can cause problems for anyone, even Woodley. He’s a lot longer than Woodley. His boxing is better and his jiu-jitsu is better. Power doesn’t rule over everything. So it won’t be easy, by a long shot. I think Woodley is the favourite and I see him winning, but you’re not getting an easy fight against a Diaz.

    Woodley will dominate Diaz worse than Bendo and Rory did.

    Nate’s biggest weaknesses are Woodley biggest strengths. I hope Diaz wins though.

    One of the easiest defences of his Title Woodley will have. He’ll be rubbing his paws right now.
