    And how many knocked the other guy out? I could throw 100 shitty punches to someones mid section, or 1 good one to put them down.

    Also note, I'm not a Diaz hater, I love watching the guy fight, but your argument is flawed.

    This is funny because Diaz doesn't throw his strikes with the intent of knocking an opponent out with any one strike. For the record though he dropped Shamrock, Smith and Marius with single body shots. Throwing everything with the intent of dropping an opponent makes you throw poorly and gas.

    His argument might be flawed but your counter is stupid.

    I may be in the minority but I was hoping that Cris Cyborg would lose her match. In every fight I've seen her in she always seems to severely outclass her opponent (with maybe the exception of when she fought Gina Carano). Kinda takes away the thrill of the event if in the first few seconds of the match it is evident she'll knock the **** out of her opponent.

    The last one. Which was what mattered.
    Why does everyone have a problem with throwing a lot of techniques? He has the cardio for it, he lands a high percentage of them, and it wins fights.
    And I don't see how my argument is flawed. Landing 90+ out of 115 strikes is a nice high percentage of accuracy, especially for MMA. I would say that pretty well demonstrates that Diaz has accurate hands, regardless of how pretty you think he looks while he's hitting people. And his 5 TKO victories in a row say he hits plenty hard. And that makes 6 out of his last 7 victories TKOs. (Yeah, I know ,cuts, corner stoppages, whatever... He fucks people up.)

    I, too, wanted her to lose, but only because I find her wild brawler style unappealing to look at. I'd rather have a super-smooth submissions girl at the top of the heap.

    I don't think she's a brawling type fighter. Honestly she's a very balanced fighter. She just has outstanding power and strength.

    She seems to fit the definition of brawler to me... aggresive, willing to taKe shots in order to dish some out, uses her strength and chin as key components of her game plan...

    She does have a well balanced skil set (short in wrestling perhaps?), but that don't mean she's not a brawler.

    She is lacking both in wrestling and in grappling once it gets to the ground. She does not have a well balanced skill set.

    Diaz looked great and I love it how non-UFC guys continue to call out the UFC Champs. Oh wait second, actually I don't. I'm sick of that crap. Everybody knows what it takes to fight BJ or GSP, just step up and sign with them and win a few fights. Guys like Aoki and Diaz calling out these guys when they KNOW they won't fight them. Hell, I might as well call out Brock. Gomi is the only one I respect cause he called out BJ but then actually signed with the UFC. HMMMM, step 1 is done. Now if he walks threw Kenny, there is a good chance they make that fight happen, if not, he's most likely just 1 more win away. I would love to see Diaz fight in the UFC again but no way in hell does he even get a title shot right out of the gate IMO.

    Oh, ok.

    She appears to have enough game to smoosh other strikers and smaller more talented opponents from what little I've seen.
