Deadwrong: Diaz has "technically" been "finished" three times in his career: Hermes Franca (sub), your good buddy, Josh Thompson (TKO, referee stoppage and/or corner stoppage; Nick threw in the towel) and Jorge Masvidal (TKO, doctor stoppage, cut).
@lasrfoto 2 жыл бұрын
I remember at time where Nick & Nate Diaz were not universally loved, in fact I’d say it was the exact opposite. There were a contingent of hard core fans who absolutely loved them, and still do because they can see right through the BS “just thugs” misdirection, and know the incredible skills they possess. Today they get a lot of the recognition they deserve, but it was not like this in the past. The Diaz brothers are the Rage Against the Machine of MMA.

Shout out to the Randleman family. Kevin was a true monster. The double knees, the suplex on Fedor, the knockout of Crocop, Sakuraba coming out dressed as Mario because the Japanese fans had started calling Kevin Donkey Kong because of the way he would leap in the air before his fights. A true icon. UFC champ and had the title taken off him in maybe the worst decision in MMA history. A truly interesting career deserving of the Hall

Helwani, you keep talking about how it bothers you that mma doesn’t recognize the greats. While that’s true, it’s also folks in the media (yourself included) that should take some blame.
