WTF? Two minutes in the first round? You must be hooked on that rock son...if there is one thing Gracie's still have going for them it is their ability to protect themselves against strikes. Royce's guard is as good as it gets...though I think Hughes will win, this is not going to be an easy defeat of Royce.
Also, digging on Nick Diaz? He is one of the best in his division, his defeat against Sanchez was a result of a poor game plan, not lack of skill. Diesel "Fat Boy" Riggs will not be able to take Diaz...let's hope he can make weight this time without bitching out.
Dude Diaz is a whiner. He is a great ground person, however he tends to get lazy in the ring. Riggs f'ed up the weight against Hughes, but the scale was jacked. He was over by a pound, left to shed the pound and was over by 2. Something wrong there. We'll see though. I'm not saying that Riggs is all that, but I do believe he will take Nick by power. Unless he slips and gets caught in a bar. Diaz is excellent at that. I just wish he would man up.
As far as Gracie's guard....the dude is a legend, but teaching and competing are totally different. Matt Hughes is not my favorite. I am a GSP, Franklin fan, but I do think that Hughes will overpower him rather quickly once he feels him out. Did you see the Franklin v. Shamrock? Shamrock is a stud, and was great, but there is a difference in skill of then and skill of now. I see the M.H. - R.G. going the same way.
Hey we all have opinions, it'll be great to watch.
No, I don't smoke rock. I do however, take medicine for Parkinson's.
May the best PREPARED fighter win.
