Is there something I am missing here? The article said he is suspended until two days after UFC 157 is everyone assuming he is going to get out of his suspension early?



Exactly what I was thinking.... How can he fight Feb 2nd when he's not eligible to apply for a license until Feb 4th... I'd like to see Diaz on that card as much as anybody, considering his suspension is a joke, I hope he can appeal the date he can apply for a license somehow... Overeem gets 9 months for whatever he was doing, Diaz gets 12 months for being good at chilling out. Bizzaro world....



Difference is, it wasn't Diaz's 1st offense...

Kos will do what he's always done since his first loss to GSP and swing himself into a coma against a competent striker when he could win an EASY decision. I'm sorry but when Sean Sherk and Diego Sanches are pulling easy dec wins over Diaz its pretty evident a REAL wrestler would take 30-27 rapage.

Wasted talent for dollar bills.



Nick Diaz got out struck by KJ Noons 5 years ago but you don't see me ranting about how his boxing sucks. No doubt Diaz's weakest aspect is his wrestling but he looks like a much sharper fighter than he did 7 years ago.



He is on another level than he was years ago but when did he fight a single wrestler since he left the UFC....... Name one for me please.

Shamrock didnt even try to wrestle and BJ beat that ass before his taco bell diet took its toll. But youre right, being a better fighter means something whatsoever about his wrestling....



He trains with Jake Shields at Caesar Gracie. He looks like an all around improved fighter. And yes wrestling IS part of fighting.

So why isnt prime Sean Sherk considered a REAL wrestler?

Anyway, Kos doesnt have the gas or the defense to fight off Diaz for 3, and his bjj defense has never been better than average.

Sherk was. Plain and Simple he was a smaller man and took the TD to Diaz

And you dont think Kos' size advantage would win him out on the ground?

I think koscheck hasnt changed his strategy in years other than when he fights completely one-dimensional fightets. He strikes to set up the takedown, and he shoots halfway into the round to save energy and secure rounds. He also gets hit alot by jabs and since hes fighting a southpaw the distance between him and his opponents center of gravity is farther apart. Kos will have to work too much too early to sustain a decision pace. Thats why i dont think his size id much of a key factor.
