He also put an epic beatdown on Jon Fitch.
From what I read on twitter, the Diaz thing was Nick/Nate not filming their interviews for UFC Primetime on time or something of that nature, however everything has been resolved.
hopefully gsp breaks both of diaz orbital bones, and his jaw while hes at it
I'm anticipating the fight being called off and Nick getting booted. I really hope he has a moment of clarity. Just do the deal for a few months and you're set for life. Soak it in, you're making millions doing what you love, which is training all day. I just don't understand how a few weeks of PR can be such a mind**** to someone. Smile & nod man, answer questions like Cain Velasquez and Frankie Edgar. Just re"hash" the same answer. "The past is the past, I'm gonna go in there and give it my all."
Nick is paranoid and will ramble on and get himself all worked up, he's his own worst enemy when it comes to the press . Would hate to see him fade out of this one, but I'm ready for it. The likelihood of GSP smothering him to a decision is extremely high. You're talking about the best takedown artist in MMA history, against perhaps the worst takedown defense in the top ranks of the UFC. I can even see GSP beating Nick up on the feet. If Nick shows any signs of finding his range, he's going down to the canvas. This should be GSP's tune up for Anderson.
Man what a good fight card this weekend. Rhonda is a beast and I am excited to see her grow as a fighter and mature, given that women's MMA continues to gain momentum. The Menace fight was awesome too. I was soo nervous for Machida, Hendo is a manimal and very scary given his power.
I'm so looking forward to the GSP fight. I can't stand the dude, his personality (as is on TV) just grates my nerves, but the guy is an freak in the octagon. I hope Nick is ready, fight fans need an elite showdown.
Think they will throw him to the wolves so soon? It would be awesome to see, but I'd prefer to see Jones / Anderson. But - that may be too much awesomeness for one tv screen.This should be GSP's tune up for Anderson.
Less than 48 hours after UFC president Dana White revealed that featherweight champion Jose Aldo was absolutely refusing to fight Anthony Pettis, the entire scene did a 180-degree switch, Aldo relenting and keeping the Aug. 3 fight with Pettis intact.
So what happened in those 48 hours to change Aldo’s mind?
A title shot of his own, that’s what.
Shortly after White confirmed that Aldo had agreed to put his UFC featherweight title on the line against Pettis, Brazilian website Tatame.com spoke with Aldo, who said that his demand was simple. If Pettis, like Frankie Edgar, was granted a title shot in his 145-pound debut, then Aldo wanted a 155-pound title shot in return if he is victorious over that division’s No. 1 contender.
White agreed, and the deal was done.
DC Sports: The Curse Is Real
That's vicious. If Aldo beats Pettis he fights Bendo or Melendez. Sick matchups. Aldo is the man.
Pastor and South Dakota Representative Steve Hickey Calls MMA ‘Child Porn’
Mixed martial arts, or MMA, is a wildly popular sport in America. I’m not a big fan by any means, but I certainly respect it.
South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard opposes a bill currently in the legislature that would regulate sports like MMA.
Why? He says such regulation would “legitimize” the sport.
OK. I can respect that opinion. But I think it is misguided thinking.
MMA is already a legitimate sport regardless of whether or not our traditionally behind-the-times state chooses to regulate the sport. Instead Daugaard would rather we do nothing and allow fights to happen without regulation.
I completely disagree him, but I can at least respect that opinion for what it is: old thinking.
I cannot respect the opinion of Representative Steve Hickey. His opinion of MMA written in his blog:
“MMA Cage Fighting is the child porn of sports.”

That's completely off and a ****ing weird comparison, guess there goes UFC 200 in South Dakota!

Ronda Rousey Action Figure to be Released in April 2013
On the heels of her first stunning UFC title defense against Liz Carmouche, Ronda Rousey’s meteoric rise as public icon just broke the proverbial glass ceiling; she will now have her own custom-designed Action Figure.
But it won’t be coming from where you might expect; this is a Cinderella story almost as good as that of Ronda herself.
Disappointed with the lower-than-expected revenues from the existing line of action figure collectables from JAKKS, Zuffa had recently ceased negotiations with the company, looking for a fresh angle to try to improve the potential but failing merchandising wing of the brand.
Of all the giants in the toy business trying to get the new contract however, the recipient was a shocking underdog: GDCMMA, an emerging MMA fan crew that had never even produced a real action figure before, and an obscure online photoshopper known as ‘Masato Toys’.
Details of how this came about is cited below, but for now here is a freshly released image of the first prototype design of none other than the exploding superstar ‘Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey.
The toy is expected for full release in early April.

The Diaz hate in here is amazing. Wishing for broken bones? Seriously?
Anyone have a link for the UFC stream tonight?
I can't get Fuel TV here
Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann: I think if Wand gets KTFO, he's done. Dana will cut him, this might be it. I've been nostalgic about Wand's career today. What a vicious, strong as all hell, beast of a man. **** beautiful technique, he's squeezing those fists, biting down on that mouthpiece and throwing fists like his life depends on it. Who doesn't like Wand? This might be the last we see of him. Stann, he's got power in the standup, a good chin, it's his specialty to rumble. I just think Wand's been put away too many times at this point. Prove me wrong, Wandy. Stann via KO rd 1
Lombard vs. Okami: I think Okami maintains top control and wins all 3 rounds. Lombard stays out of Okami's clinches, things get interesting. Okami UD
Struve vs. Hunt: Struve should get this to the ground any way possible and try to sub Hunt. He's got those skills. Hunt is just such a threat on the feet, and Struve, with his kickboxer mentality...could spell doom. I think Struve does the smart thing and finds a way to get it to the ground. Struve via armbar rd 1
Gomi vs. Sanchez: Anyone seen Gomi and Diego lately? Like Yin and Yang. Sanchez is psyched as usual, Gomi looks like he's on an entire bottle of Robotussen. Diego via UD.
