Nick Diaz will not be cornering his younger brother, Nathan Diaz, in what will surely be the biggest fight of Nathan's career. Nick, who is himself under a six month NSAC suspension, has been advised that due to his suspension he will not be able to secure a corner's license in Nevada.
Jake Shields will now travel to Las Vegas to take over cornering duties. He will be joining Gilbert Melendez and Cesar Gracie in Nathan's corner.

There's no way man. You have too much faith in El Nino.

I also have faith in Melendez beating Sherk, but that's not what this thread is about unfortunately. Sad that Nick Diaz can't be cornering Nate, he's like the overprotective brother and he pushed Nate into the Sport. Oh well, Gamburyan won't have Karo in his corner either.

Gillie The Kid is just as good!

Like dude above me said...Karo's not gonna be in Manvil's corner either so...I guess it's alright.

Thats retarded, sherk would rip him in half. Nate's a badass don't get me wrong but he's just not strong or powerful enough. Did you see Sherk fight Nick Diaz?

Sherk would rip Melendez in half?? Gillie Tha Kid would destroy Sherk standing, jump on him as he was down and GNP him with ease. He's too much action, Sherk is good when he can outmuscle guys and take them down and lay on them, but if somebody brought it to him and showed good TD defense (El Nino) he would be finished. Franca will lose to Sherk because of his gas tank, but will expose a lot of holes in his game.

That sucks for Nate, but this shouldnt affect him seriously. Jake Shields and El Nino in ur corner is really good

That sucks... I was really hoping for the Diaz brothers and the Parysian relatives to all be there and have some prefight banter.

They're saying that Gilbert Melendez (nate's cornerman) would beat sherk, not that nate himself would beat sherk.

Yeah, Nick had better keep himself tucked away until he can return and try to scrape back some of the respect he has lost. Nate seems like a pretty capable and intuitive fighter though, so I'm sure he'll be fine without his presence.

I miss read, but I don't think that Melendez could hang with Sherk either

Ok Gilbert and Jake will be near the UFC octagon for one night. Hopefully Dana and the powers at be extend a hand get them in one. Shields and Gilbert are two of my favorite fighters, it would be really nice to see them fight in the UFC. Joe Stevenson vs. Gilbert that would be pretty fun to watch.
