Diaz is already talking smack.
From Gracie fighter.com
Diaz on Gomi

We spoke to Nick Diaz on his upcoming encounter with current lightweight Pride Champion, Takanori Gomi. The 23 year old did not refrain from expressing his thoughts.

"I don't think he has anything to offer that I haven't seen before. I think I've fought tougher guys than him. The guys I've fought hit harder, were better wrestlers and better grapplers. What does he think he'll be able to do to me? I'm not intimidated at all and if he thinks he can knock me out that's fine. I think he'll be the one getting an ass beating so I hope he's ready." - Diaz

Nick is always talking smack; I'll probably have the volume up loud on that fight to see if I can pick him up calling Gomi a bitch or anything like that. I really think is going to be the fight of the night.

As cliche as saying it has become on MMA forums it's true. This has potential for fight of the year written all over it.

Gomi is a technical fighter with good hand speed and sharp movements. His footwork is a bit unpolished but then again he's no boxer. He is good at creating range from his opponents and then closing it when he comes in. Like Mike Swick he rarely throws lazy jabs or one punch benders. He throws mean combos with bad intentions.

His ability to get on the inside is going to be crucial in this fight. I honestly don't believe that either of these guys can finish each other off. My prediction: Gomi gets caught in the second round after gaining confidence in the first after a somewhat lackluster Diaz performance. After this Diaz builds momentum and in the third both fighters emerge almost unscathed. Gomi by UD. The world will give Diaz mad props for never having been "finished" in a fight.

Diaz can yet again talk all the smack he would like. The only thing he is going to hear when he gets in the ring is Gomi's fist crushing his face and then his body hitting the canvas. If Diaz would spend as much time focusing on the fight as he does talking about it he would be great.

Everyone knows Diaz has a world of potential, but when it comes time to fight he has never seemed focused. He needs to take a more business like approach such as Gomi if he ever wants to tap into his potential

Gomi by KO

Actually it was early in his career, but Diaz got KOed by Jeremy Jackson , I think itwas in the first round too. So he's been finished, but I agree with Gomi by decision.

Nick diaz has only had problems with guys who take him down at will and win a decision...

Sherk...Riggs...Parisyan..Sanchez...which are all beasts

if Gomi wins i predict it will be a controversy...

Definately possible . Pride's judging concerning japanese fighter's has always been suspect IMO. I'm not sure who the judges the NSAC will appoint, but it would seem it would be less likely if they are the same judges other orgs. use here. Unless they are all Cecil Peoples and clones, Diaz has a better chance in Vegas than Japan to me.

That right there is why I hate Nick Diaz.No respect for anyone.
