I agree on all points but, I feel he has the capacity to be a better fighter.

Of course he has to face his greatest enemy, which of course is himself.

Emotion aside, he acted like a ****ing spoiled little girl after the match, and I hope he has the personal insight to see where he can improve, if he's even given the chance to return.

That said, I have to hand it to Nelson, damn, that boy can take a beating.


Of course he could he can be a better fighter, if he stops thinking it's a bar room brawl.

The guy acts as if nobody has a right to try and win against him.

If Condit had stood infront of him and Ko'ed Nick, he would find a way to not only say it was an early stoppage, but that Condit didn't fight like a man.

And in my last post, I forgot to add act, in the retarded sentence. LOL

A rematch between Condit and Diaz was looking to be set, but was called off.

Now we all know why.

Diaz failed a drug test for weed, just like he did at Pride 33.

What a retard....................................................................................

Actually I would say the real stupid part is, smoking weed can blow your career as a fighter.

That truly is the dumb part.

I only just came across this thread. Reading the beginning arguments regarding MMA vs boxing, I believe Royce Gracie proved to the world that boxing is obsolete back in the early 90's. I don't have anything against boxing. I love to watch Pacquiao. But, given the choice between watching boxing or MMA, I'd choose MMA. Hands down. I appreciate the combination of different styles and disciplines that MMA employs. And when a fighter is able to submit his opponent, I get way more excited than with a knock out. But, that's just me.

Funny to me how Boxers will roll over to MMA/UFC and try their hand. Let's be realistic, it it were the other away around how long do you think they would have lasted in the ring with someone like Bernard Hopkins?

I doubt anyone of them would have made it through the first round.

Boxers don't "try their hand" against the top tier MMA fighters and never have. Randy Couture was a great fighter, but was on his way out. Yet...he finished James Tony in seconds.

That being said, I think Anderson Silva and Junior Dos Santos could hold their own in a boxing match with a quality pro boxer. Perhaps not the elite fighters, but they do have good boxing skill. That being said, Bernard Hopkins would get dispatched quickly by Silva in the cage with knees, elbows and kicks.

A specialist will always be "better" than an all-rounder (the very nature of an MMA fighter) in their respective field, yet in an MMA fight where it's much closer to a TRUE fight, the boxer, regardless of skill, has little chance of survival.

I have to disagree santos and silva would get their asses kicked in a boxing match once you get used to using your legs and knees it's almost impossible to go back to just using your hands

any of them would have their asses kicked by someone proficient with a gun , knife, or club, fighting stick, so what's your point?

seriously, this is one of the most asinine comments I have ever read, what makes it worse is you probably believe it.

to think for a moment these individuals do not posses training in one, or all, of these specific fields is ridiculous.

Ridiculous.

true, they could each take on an infantry battalion, most likely. the point is all this crap about who is the "baddest" or most 'bad-azz' within a narrowly defined set of 'rules' is silly

if GSP or whoever the 'baddest' MMA guy is wanted to come after me, I'd handle him with 12- ga. Rem. 870 magnum 00-buck , without spending all the time training.

It's a bit odd to me, to worship a person whose biggest skill is hurting other people with their hands feet and other body parts, but to each their own

you have nothing to worry about, you're not a world class fighter.

of course you would.

it's a bit odd to me, to post about a subject you clearly do not/can not, understand.

I've practiced MMA for over a year now. Kudos to anyone who does step into the ring is daunting, confronting and it scares the living shit out of you. GSP is an amazing athlete and a decent person to boot, Diaz is a over grown bully and I hope GSP bombs him.

Apples and oranges dude, I too like watching boxing requires a lot of foot work and stamina. But then again if you've ever grappled with someone you'll know just how intense and physically draining it is let alone getting back up to continue throwing kicks and fists.

Neither boxing or MMA is better they are two different sports, just like Thai boxing is a different thing all together. UFC I still presume is a little too brutal for mainstream viewing especially with all the gore.

People just like to think that something is the "Ultimate" style of fighting, there isn't it depends on the person.

Dunno I always thought because most of the people who bring on the hate are probably couch potatoes and its the whole mentality "Oh my sport is tougher than your sport".

It was full on! it was a massively entertaining fight. One of the first MMA events I've watched since Reem vs Lesnar - watching that pissed me off enough.

Still waiting to watch Dos Santos beat the crap out of Reem and GSP get his belt back.

^^^GSP still has his belt.

Condit is just the interm belt holder.

Also, Rousey is a beast.

If you don't tap, you will pay. .....................................................................

I feel the same way. Boxing used to be my favorite sport, but now it barely registers a blip on my radar screen, since MMA came along. I went to UFC 139 in San Jose. Overall it was pretty great. Especially the Silva vs Le fight. What a war.

I think the whole sport is weird and operates more like a cult than a sport. Honestly I've heard more strange things happening from this sport than any other. There's stuff going around like the mother of the actual president of the company saying her son had blackmailed his own sister in law into sleeping with him. As a requirement the ring girls have to have sex with the president. On their forums the mods go around banning people and censoring anyone who brings it up.

There was some outrage a while ago that the actual MMA forums were secretly installing viruses on their users computer so they could monitor their activity and track their users. The UFC encourages their hardcore fans to act like cultists and shut down anyone who says anything bad against them. When ESPN criticized their horrible wages they went on a rampage claiming ESPN was part of a conspiracy against them. On their forums anything negative against the UFC gets shut down. Their were threads on the forums paying respect to an MMA fighter who died during sparring in 2011 and the mods kept shutting the threads down and banning people.

The UFC even encourage their fans to make fake accounts on select websites, posing as interested fans. The idea is to keep a main super thread on every important site which their slave like fans will keep bumping to make the UFC seem like people are interested. Some leaked emails from the president of the UFC show he encouraged fans making fake accounts on websites like this one to spread their memes around.

I tried to get into the sport for a bit but the culture is one of constant paranoia. Their hardcore fans are creepy and obsessive. They act more like Gestapo than sport's fans. It reminds me of the creepy obsessed culture those WWE fans used to have where "WWE IS MY LIFE"

Who will fight JDS once Reem is eventually pulled from the fight?

Dana has said that Mir/Cain is still on, even tho Mir seems like the right option to fill the spot.

Werdum? Bigfoot is coming off of being KO'ed.

Hunt? His best win is Kongo, and it would look pretty crazy if they fought and somehow he won when considering his record.

Dan Henderson has said he is open to the fight.

I really don't think Dan should do that consider he will most likely be KO'ed for the first time if he does it. But his balls are so big, he'd fight anyone.

No idea. Mir is the logical choice, although I guess one could make a case for Werdum. I don't see either of them beating JDS, though.

It 100% sure should be Frank Mir. Dana White has stated that the Mir/Cain fight will go on as planned, but if they don't use Mir, I don't know who they go with. Hendo has stated that he wouldn't mind the fight, but I would much rather see him at 205/185 fighting for the title. There's a movement to get Mark Hunt the title shot, but IMO, that would be a joke.

If they don't do Mir, I honestly have no idea who they go with, but he's the logical choice. If Cain had maybe lost a close fight to JDS, you could make a case, but he got KO'd in rather quick fashion.

Followed boxing for many years.Don King and Riddick Bowe ruined it.Still love to see PacMan fight.Just about all UFC now.

As for "real fighting"?As in your life is on the line?My deceased ex father-in-law,a jump trained commando in WWII,faced a number of desperate situations,either when all ammo was gone on the eastern front,or in hellish secret POW camps.A large pair of hands and just plain dirty fighting.Eyes,throat, testicles.In whatever order they present themselves.
