Nate Diaz is BJJ in MMA appreciation thread
UFN spoiler don't read if you haven't watched it.
Some people (on the "Internets") complain that BJJ is dead in MMA, not that the techniques are dead, just that the fights aren't allowed to stay on the ground long enough for BJJ wizards to wear their opponent out and submit them.
While there is some truth towards the bias of standing fighters up for inactivity in an attempt to make the fights more exciting. Nate Diaz constantly puts lie to the idea that "BJJ is dead in MMA"
The difference between Diaz and some other BJJ wizards is that where as others spend time trying to safely pass half guard and not get hit, Nate takes risks, gets punched in the face yet keeps going for sub after sub after sub.
His Triangle on Peligrino was sick. The guy is a submission bull dog.
I think Nick shows that BJJ is very much alive in MMA but to be sub machine like him you have to open up your attempts and keep calm get resigned to fact that you'll take some hits but to stay focused on your game.
For composure and sticking to your game plan under fire I salute you Nate Diaz
He is the first man I've seen to lock up a triangle and then celebrate with both arms. Badass.

He's more articulate than his brother. I think it's pretty difficult to say that BJJ is dead in MMA given the success of Minotauro, Frank Mir, GSP, BJ Penn, et al.

Thats cause his brother is a stuttering drug addict lol.
Holy ****, that was awesome! From now on, instead pulling down the head to finish the choke, I'm going to throw my hands up and celebrate in honor of my new hero.
Knowing the Diaz bros. they'd probably prefer if you celebrated in a different manner. Possibly offering all praise to Jah and HIM.
I'm not meaning to attack them just poking fun, they are both well accomplished and excellent fighters I lend nothing but praise for their accomplishments. Peace bro.
