being a bendo fan, I don't think his grappling will be effective against the bigger fighters at 170.

Agreed. Bendo was a MASSIVE 155er, that allowed him to maintain that size/power advantage in his grappling game. I just don't see a move up to 170 being the best move for him, there are monsters up there.

There are some good fights up there for him and if the cut is too much for him now, I can't blame him.

We've all discussed how Aldo fades later in fights and some believe it's because of how much he cuts.

Barao just ******* fainted trying to make weight.

I'd say this is the smarter alternative. He's not exactly close to a title shot at 155 right now.

http://www.mmaweekly.com/nick-diaz-arrested-on-suspicion-of-dui-and-obstructing-a-police-officer

Nick Diaz is slated to throw down with former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva in the UFC 183 main event on Super Bowl Weekend in Las Vegas, but it looks like he’s got another fight on his hands first.

Diaz was arrested in Lodi, Calif., at 2:20 a.m. on Sept. 6 on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI), obstructing a police officer, destruction of evidence, and driving with a suspended license, according to Lodi Police Department Sgt. Steve Maynard, who confirmed an initial report by the Lodi News-Sentinel to MMAWeekly.com.

In clarifying the charges, Sgt. Maynard told MMAWeekly.com that Diaz was “actually cordial and polite” during the arrest, but that the obstructing a police officer charge stemmed from an incident during the arrest. Diaz requested to use the bathroom during the arrest process, and when an officer accompanied him, Diaz tried to induce his own vomiting, which would have altered the affects of ingesting alcohol or other influential substances.

Diaz’s arraignment should be 21 days after his arrest.

“We are aware of the (Nick Diaz arrest) situation and are in the process of gathering the facts,” read a UFC statement to MMAWeekly.com. “We understand that there is a legal process that will now take place and that Nick Diaz will have the opportunity to address the situation in the near future.”

On July 24, Diaz inked a new three-fight deal with the UFC ending his pseudo-retirement. Following his UFC 158 loss to then-champion Georges St-Pierre on March 16, 2013, Diaz announced that he was hanging up his gloves. A fight with Silva was enough to entice the Stockton native back to the cage.

A short time later, the UFC booked the fight between Diaz and Silva.

At the time of publication, there had been no response from UFC officials for a request for comment on Diaz’s DUI arrest.

Wow. Good for Pitbull.

Reem has no allegiance to Jackson's, make Alistair/Andrei happen. That can EASILY headline a lesser FS1/Fight Pass card.

where does he train his striking at? Renzo BMAA Bronx?
post #4308 of 41107
Church Street Boxing.

Does his BJJ at Renzo's academies.

I don't know why, but when I see Renzo Gracie Bronx, it cracks me up.

That must be the illest martial arts academy in America laugh.gif

8 wins in a row. His Muay Thai is sick.

Hypothetically, think Moraes beats Dillashaw?

Don't know. I'm always skeptical of fighters from other orgs.

WEC at 155 and under being the exception since those dudes were all pretty much fighting guys that were the legit best in their weight class.

Though Condit and a few others have made smooth transitions.

I just think Moraes gone as far as he can go in WSOF.

Eddie should win on paper, "Cowboy" will find a way to dig out the W and make it 5 in a row. Although likely not by finish.

I know that feel.

Braulio Estima's Gracie Barra school is in my hometown Birmingham, England.

Will be interesting to see how a crazy active fighter like Cowboy looks against a dude as inactive as Eddie. Not his fault, but since Oct. 2012, he has only seen Chandler in the cage.

Eddie is probably more talented, but the mythical combination of "ring rust" and "UFC jitters" have me leaning towards Cowboy taking home the W.

I go back and forth on Eddie

 

Interested to hear how Eddie is "more talented", I could see maybe a better boxer and wrestler. Cowboy is a wizard on the ground and a mauler with his kickboxing

 

It will be a nice barometer for Eddie

post #4317 of 41107
I guess by more talented, I meant more refined. His boxing is crisper and smarter, while Cowboy's kickboxing is just visually wilder, but still pretty damn precise.

"Sexyama" defeats Sadollah. By KO or decision.
