UFC Rory Markham isn't just training to fight – he's training to fight trash talk.

At UFC 111, Markham (16-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC) faces a dynasty in the world of trash talking: a Diaz brother. Although Nate Diaz (11-5 MMA, 6-3 UFC) is the kinder, gentler version of older brother Nick Diaz, he also can talk a good game, especially during a fight.

Markham said he isn't going to be distracted by verbal warfare when they meet on March 27 in Newark, N.J., but just the same, his sparring partners have orders to talk smack during training sessions.

If Diaz decides to go there, the heavy-handed IFL veteran said it's fine with him.

Neer has no right to make it seem that simple. Diaz pieced the hell out of him then took him down and ripped his arm off. Its gonna take a lot more than being in good shape for markham to take this one

I like the training tacttic. For sure Nate will talk ****. I am not so sure nate wants to do that. His boxing is good but Rory might put him out! I like Rory in this match up. I thought Nate was a thin LW. Not sure how he well he will transition to WW????

He was definitely skinny as hell. He better start thickening up.
