Nick Diaz, of Team Cesar Gracie, has been picked up to fight Dennis Hallman in UFC 44. He is replacing Jeremy Jackson, whom Nick recently defeated by first round TKO.
Nick is the older brother of Nate Diaz, who defeated forum regular Vargas by points at the Las Vegas Grappling Championships. We're sure that Vargas was merely unsettled after seeing Fatality Dragon in his transparent mesh shirt.
To Omega, you should check out the graciefighter.com website. They have a post on the front page from Jeremy Jackson's mom, who is very angry at Robert Ferguson and Team Freedom for not sending anyone to watch Jeremy's fight. I thought you'd relish Ferguson taking a hit.
I was also talking with Omega about how the results of this fight would be unfortunate either way as both Jackson and Diaz are up-and-coming fighters whose reputations would be harmed unfairly by a loss. Looks like that came true as Jackson lost his UFC spot. I hope that he gets another chance. Good luck to Nick...he works hard, and he's been a great teacher. Too bad he moved to Antioch...grr.
