"He needs to go to KOTC and rack up some experience before moving back up." - Put the internet down and baaaack away slowly...This guy has fought everyone and he belongs at the top level of the sport. IMO.
I respect Nick Diaz alot...He fights MMA....He competes in Jiu-Jitsu (gi). He competes No Gi. He represents Stockton (I'm a UOP alum and I got a soft spot in my heart for that dirty nasty wonderful town).
Nick Diaz = Good for the sport!
