I see Penn taking this fight and definitely thought this fight would happen. Penn takes this fight via better overall grappling and due to Diaz’s terrible strike defense. Bj may even finish him. However I can see Diaz using his reach and ripping Penn with body shots for the tko, but I’m pretty sure Penn is better than Diaz at nearly every aspect of the fight game. This has been my dream fight for about a year now, can’t wait! Big fan of both fighters but gotta go with Blowjay.

What are your thoughts on this fight Bruno? Who takes it?

Bruno: I am not ready to make a pick on this one yet.

F”N Dope! This is better all the way around!

SanClemente Says, in 9-9-2011 at 00:42:15 from    

Yeah!!!! Yes!!!! this is going to be a really good fight! both fighters have good stand up and great ground game! cardio will be the factor in this one. yes BJ PENN VS DIAZ!!!

RearNakedSmoke Says, in 9-9-2011 at 00:46:26 from    

Again, I’d just like to say I told you so. I called it as soon as Dana said “I have a crazy idea for BJ” at the presser. I saw it in his eyes. And I read it in that Diaz video too, where he rambles on about still going to Vegas, and still being willing to fight “whoever”. See, I speak fluent pothead, and wasn’t falling for that BS for a second. He already knew. Dana had already spoken to him by then. This was all set up in advance, and Nick threw that video out because the UFC told him to.
Sorry, but for once, I was right about something. And I scooped everybody with it. So I had to brag a little. Don’t worry, it most likely will never happen again.
But this ONE time, I told you so.

hope BJ destroys him

This is a WAY better match up. Somebody called this in another forum on this site. Nice call!

Grim Says, in 9-9-2011 at 01:10:44 from    

Boxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu slickness. Mirrored fighters. This could be greatness.

This card just got a whole lot better!

Throne Says, in 9-9-2011 at 01:26:40 from    

lol, not sure if any of this mess makes sense, but I don’t care….fighting in cages between awesome fighters is cool.

alexnexus Says, in 9-9-2011 at 01:28:07 from    

this is actually the fight that saw possible and attractive before diaz left strikeforce.


casyboy Says, in 9-9-2011 at 01:32:35 from    

this works out better , now dana can get some sleep knowing everything is not riding on diaz..

yeaaaaaaababy Says, in 9-9-2011 at 01:38:26 from    

f…. yeahhhh baby! dope. So gonna watch. I’d quit work, or ditch my client to watch this shti. lol

dis is just crap. no sense at all, daiz is such a loser 4 dis 1. i have neva surpotted penn but i do hope he wins dis 1

jbeckcer2 Says, in 9-9-2011 at 01:57:37 from    

1. first bj vs condit, gsp vs diaz…

2. now condit beats gsp, bj beats diaz

3. then bj vs condit, gsp vs diaz…

sweet sassy molassy Says, in 9-9-2011 at 02:05:35 from    

no respect to the fighters,, Dana suck,, give the kid some slack. he has social issues and that’s not a secret. so what if he doesn’t make the press conference the ppv was going to be off the charts,, it was win win for everyone.. just because you are a UFC fighter doesn’t make you exempt from public speaking.

I can see how Dana thinks,, gsp vs diaz = one milion, diaz kills penn and gsp vs diaz 2 = 2 million…..

Freaklegion Says, in 9-9-2011 at 02:13:08 from    

Called it!

straightAhead Says, in 9-9-2011 at 02:13:23 from    

I dont necessarily think this is a better fight. Its a good fight that i will like to see but i would have preferred to see Diaz vs GSP. Also, does this mean its ok for Diaz to continue to miss press conferences? This is not much of a punishment…. ahh whatever

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 9-9-2011 at 02:48:42 from    

Ok well Ill settle for this thats gona be a hella fight

It sucked! Says, in 9-9-2011 at 02:58:52 from    

Great match up! BJ is better on the ground, almost equal hands and a granite chin. Love to see BJ take this chump out with a great welcome back to the UFC!

willienugget Says, in 9-9-2011 at 03:02:29 from    

hell ya

Yommomamoto Norifumi Says, in 9-9-2011 at 03:09:45 from    

Right on Rear Naked Smoke.

This is rad ‘cept I love both these brothers this time.

Damn before it was a simple case of rooting for the underdog but now…don’t really know what I want to occur but there’s gonna be some damn good fights goin down – no time for safe gaming it now.

No tapping in the street! Says, in 9-9-2011 at 03:36:03 from    

Nick Diaz will win….watch!

fufc Says, in 9-9-2011 at 03:56:44 from    

perhaps…diaz IS playing the game, playing it far better than we expect from him, and is getting paid even more to fake the no show, go along with the story, and fight Penn…i mean he is focused more on the money, and his response was well, dodgy of the reason

ness2k Says, in 9-9-2011 at 04:09:16 from    

This cool, but I’ll rather see him fight gsp.

JVILL671 Says, in 9-9-2011 at 04:46:40 from    

cant wait to see this

ElMaestro Says, in 9-9-2011 at 04:59:36 from    

I f***in knew that’s what Dana was planning. IMO far better match-ups. BJ and Diaz are actually gonna scrap! Against GSP it wouldve been very lackluster (takedown after takedown). And likewise, Condit posses a bigger problem than Diaz for GSP in regards to takedown because of those knees. It all worked out far for the better, im a happy fan!

sephong Says, in 9-9-2011 at 05:16:45 from    

haha! that’s exactly on my mind!=)

paulwonder Says, in 9-9-2011 at 06:02:11 from    

I recon it will be a better fight anyways lets face it gsp was going to gnp till the the bell rang in the 5th.
At least with this one you know its going to be a stand up war i recon fight of the night!.

concealedweaponclothing Says, in 9-9-2011 at 06:24:31 from    

i actually think do to styles bj is a tougher fight for diaz

oldassgrappler Says, in 9-9-2011 at 06:39:28 from    

Diaz saved by a BJ…..

azzy09 Says, in 9-9-2011 at 06:47:34 from    

yeah, BJ gonna beat that ass..!! BJ PENN > STRIKEFORCE welterweight division any day ..dahahahaha..lmao

marvelous mad madam mim Says, in 9-9-2011 at 07:50:00 from    

penn will gas by the end of the first and may suffer his first real tko loss

Ironfist Says, in 9-9-2011 at 08:10:51 from    

pulling for Penn better than gsp humping diaz all night feel sorry for carlos now he’s gonna get wrestlef–ked for 5 rds hope im wrong and we see a new champ.

GetSome Says, in 9-9-2011 at 09:14:07 from    

Rear Naked Pole Smoker,

Funny how you and others on this site constantly say “I told you so” and other stupid stuff. Like we care.

Anyway, I find this stupid. Diaz should have fought for the title or thrown out of the UFC. LOL. Switching things around makes no sense. Either you deserve a shot or you don’t.

Bald head dumbass is at it again. Diaz should be fighting the most boring fighter ever, so we don’t have to see GSP have a title anymore. I hate that guy.

Vin Says, in 9-9-2011 at 09:20:18 from    

Good job Dana, even though Diaz is a screwup, he’s a warrior through and through and we all want to see him bring it to the UFC.I hope we see the aggressive B.J. -epic fight!!!

RearNakedSmoke Says, in 9-9-2011 at 09:41:34 from    

@getsome. Um…You do realize that you are the only person on this site who is universally despised even more than I am, right?

Bernardo Says, in 9-9-2011 at 10:58:13 from    

@fufc Hey dude I was thinking the same. This is some guerilla marketing tactics and it really got the fans rowdy but interested!! Diaz is smoking a big ass blunt bc he got paid to go along with this scam to trick GSP so that he is unprepared to face CC and at the same time BJ is unprepared for him. Or do you think this was a last minute scramble?

Newfie Jiujitsu Says, in 9-9-2011 at 11:21:23 from    

Atta Boy RearNakedSmoke! Nice call. I’ll gove ya prop’s for that one. hard to fight to call though. I think either opponent for GSP is good Condit and Diaz both would have brought the fight to GSP. but for Penn I think diaz is a better match up. Penn has had some rough fights against aggressive wrestling types like Condit. and both Diaz and Penn will be willing to stand and bang and if it does hit the mats penn will wash the cage with him. Either TKO or rear naked by Penn!

Just0 Says, in 9-9-2011 at 11:32:45 from    


Ozinator Says, in 9-9-2011 at 12:58:01 from    

Yeah, the whole thing looks fishy…add to it, Dana hates Showtime and they are getting f***** so bad that the fighters look and sound embarrassed to be a part of Strikeforce. Could have all been about f****** Showtime– who still has contracted fights with SF before they’re allowed to get swallowed completely. Look at the uncanny timing:

Reem announcement
HW title Championship announcement
Diaz Drama

Dana is a kunt but I’d love to be a fly on the wall hearing those old men cry at Showtime

willienugget Says, in 9-9-2011 at 13:11:41 from    

Rear Naked I hardly think you are despised. You’ve just got some awfully colorful opinions at times and that’s always going to get a reaction. I’d tone it down with the ‘I called it stuff though’. I think you’re seeing what you want but that’s just me.

AFan Says, in 9-9-2011 at 13:36:39 from    

Diaz is gonna get hurt.

ramrod Says, in 9-9-2011 at 14:08:54 from    

i dont know the reach goes to Diaz but then again BJ is a badass the only … and whats crazy is that they are both good on the ground im calling it now but i think its going to go go to the ground and the better submission artist will win

ramrod Says, in 9-9-2011 at 14:11:55 from    

i know there is going to be a bunch of trashtalk i can just feel it coming man its going to be crazy BJ likes to talk smack and well we all know Diaz just the way he is … its going to be a bunch of Hype and build up from the smack talk hope its as good as expected

ibunn Says, in 9-9-2011 at 14:47:53 from    

So let me get this straight Dana / zuffa?

You kick Diaz off the title fight as punishment for missing press conferences. Ok fine, I guess that’s believable

But then at the same time your going put Diaz in the co-main event of the very same card???

What happens if Diaz misses the bj penn press conferences??? You going to punish him by moving his fight to the prelims next???

hahahhaha get the fcuk out of here!

Thank you mma gods Says, in 9-9-2011 at 14:56:22 from    

Dana really pissed me off when he took out diaz, but penn vs. diaz should be more exciting. GSP will dominate condit though…I think diaz has this one because of his length (if it stays on the feet), but it will be interesting to see whether they fight on the feet or on the ground.

stevie Says, in 9-9-2011 at 15:39:28 from    

GSP win in 5th round TKO via massage dru humping to the cranium

Bernardo Says, in 9-9-2011 at 18:23:38 from    

Diaz’s pace, aggression, precision, body shots, tenactiy, height/reach, punches in bunches and awkardness is going to wear BJ out to the point where Diaz will easily KO or submit him!

PitFighterZ Says, in 9-9-2011 at 18:32:18 from    

This whole thing looks like a big stunt to make the SF card disappear from people’s radar. Bruno’s last 3 SF-related posts got less than 15 comments.

Anyway, Condit is abetter fight for GSP. Diaz’s ground game from the back is nasty, but it’s mostly submissions. Condit’s is a nasty slice n’ cut artist. If GSP takes him down, there is a good chance Condit will win by doctor stoppage as he might open a few vaginas into GSP’s skull.
Standing up, Diaz has great hands, but GSP is faster in getting in and out with that jab and GSP has decent leg kicks. Against Condit, GSP has to worry about Condit’s kicks, which will nullify his leaping jab, and Condit has nasty knees and elbows that might complicate things. GSP has been cut many times in the past, it’s just a matter of how much blood Condit can draw from him before the fight ends.
GSP will have to completely change his game plan, while Condit will be actually free to b play to his natural strengths. It will be a very fun fight to watch just to see how they will try to outsmart each other.
BJ v. Diaz will depend mostly on BJ’s cardio. If he comes in shape, BJ is better. If not, Diaz only needs to push him to half of the second round and then beat him up.

@RNS – haha!

MMA Richmond Says, in 9-9-2011 at 20:20:43 from    

It isn’t that I want BJ to win, necessarily, but I certainly want Diaz to lose.

Impartially, and not taking into account my dislike of either of them…

Well matched fighters. Should be a good fight.

Dream Machine… Says, in 9-9-2011 at 20:21:45 from    

Holy smokes! These guys are the same fighter.

Thxer Says, in 9-9-2011 at 21:45:09 from    

I’m hoping it’s a war, and wouldn’t mind seeing Penn win this, but I’m guessing Diaz is going to walk through Penn and we’ll see him retire.

Nora Penefrin Says, in 9-10-2011 at 02:40:00 from    

bj is closer to being washed up than diaz. i predict a diaz victory although i can’t really stand his dumb and unprofessional demeanor.

Corey Says, in 9-10-2011 at 05:18:39 from    

..wow, soo many idiots. BJ and Diaz are NOT the same fighters. Diaz has infinite cardio, he’s never gassed, BJ usually gasses half way through the second round. Bj throws wild looping punches, Diaz is a very accurate combo striker. Diaz comes in and battles like a warrior EVERY fight, BJ… you never know if he’s coming out to win or just take home a paycheck. The only true comparison is their BJJ skill level, but seeing as they’re both really good, it kind of nulls that aspect of the fight. Another major point is that Diaz doesn’t give up or get discouraged if he loses a round. Ge gets angry and more determined. We’ve all seen Bj’s spirit break on more than one occasion in the cage where he just stops trying. Ultimately, this fight is majorly in Diaz’s favor.

wcoastassassin Says, in 9-10-2011 at 10:55:14 from    

Great fights, probably a better card overall. As for the conspiracy theories, it’s awful funny the things that have been going on since that breakfast with Vince McMahon…

JesusHatesYou Says, in 9-10-2011 at 10:57:38 from    

Dana White Fix. He got em to sign with Zuffa instead of Boxing knowing he wouldnt show to the press conf and wrote it in the contract just to F*** Diaz out of a pay day. Seems like the dana white thing to do.
