    I live in Berkeley where and i see nick sometimes at Jake shields gym in Berkeley also. really cool guy I am 5'10 200lbs and he man handled me. Nick walks around 195 to 200, there is no way he makes 155 he told me he sometimes has ha trouble cutting to 170. But he can do it.

    He eats a vegan diet and Jake shields is also a vegetarian. This is no the same Nick guys he is 5 times better than we some him in the ufc. He is a ressurected Nick Diaz and he will whoop riggs ass this time for sure.

    I thought Riggs broke his hand in the Baroni fight? Isnt this a little quick to have his hand healed and a proper camp in before 15 AUG?

    FTR.. Riggs looked real impressive in his last fight also. He wasnt carrying as much weight into the fight at 170 like he has in the past. He looked to have a great gas tank and his skills looked to be top notch. I dont know that Diaz is going to walk through him. I think this is going to be a excellent fight!

    I agree that Riggs has never has never looked better than he did against Baroni but Baroni is pretty bad. He could have made a lot of guys look good. I have always thought that Riggs was way over-rated.

    Nick is going to kill him. I agree with Jay that he has improved tremendously since being on the UFC, and he was already pretty good then. I really like his style. He is always active and charging forward. I met him years ago at the Pan American Jiu Jitsu tournament and he was a real nice guy. I was there with the Carlson Gracie Team and he came and said hi to Carlson and to all of us. He can appear to be a real dick but I think it is mostly an act to sell the fights, something that I think promoters are pushing – for fighters to have an edge and talk smack so that the drama make the fight bigger. But in person, he was really nice.

    Comment #3 by jay is so retarded. I have been training with nick for about 6 years now at both pacific coast and now at elite mma. he has made 155 weight plenty of times. He is a work horse and his weight has never been a issue. He almost didn't make the 186 catch weight he went with frank shamrock. It was to much to gain in to little of time. That's about it his natural weight is about 165 to 175. He will win though. Like he beat his ass in the hospital. And his attitude is no act. He has respect but he can still be the biggest asshole
