    Damn Diaz looked like a beast. He picked Frank apart like he was a little boy in a mans cage. I am really impressed. Maybe Diaz is back to being serious and at the top of his game. Lets hope I wouldnt mind seeing him come back into the UFC. WOW that was a dominating win.

    Diaz needs to stay at WW or MW. His skills with power = one tough fighter. Great showing for Nick.

    Cung Le vs. Nick Diaz for the Strikeforce middleweight belt.

    Damn Frank looked like shit tonight. I seriosuly dont think that the frank that faught cung showed up tonight. I think cung will dominate diaz but we havent even seen cungs ground game so who knows what could happen if diaz got him down.

    diaz is a master on the ground. cung is a master on his feet. it'll really depend if diaz can take cung down. so far, cung has beaten the shit out of everyone he has fought. including all of those 19 san shou fighters + those MMA guys. dana white said he would sign cung le in a heartbeat, but sadly, cung has 3 fights left with strikeforce. i would lvoe to see cung vs anderson silva.

    Diaz is a more well rounded fighter as far as mma is concerned. He would take it to the ground and tap Cung. His attitude isnt the greatest, but he is an experienced MMa fighter as Cung is not. Cung is too busy trying to be a movie star. Diaz is a fighter from the get go. He also is experienced in the art of dope smoking too. I aint mad at that.

    Cung Le wouldnt stand a chance against Anderson. Cung Le lacks power and Frank Shamrock was doing good against him striking. It wasnt like Cung Le beat the shit out of Frank at all. Diaz completly picked Shamrock apart. Frank showed up but Diaz just stayed out of range and kept hitting Frank with peppering punches and kept him at bay with low kicks and an array of high kicks. Diaz looked very good. I think Diaz has a great chance against Cung Le. I dont think Cung has the power to tko Diaz. I see Diaz beating him.

    Shamrock looked like shit! He was holding back the entire fight. He had absolutely nothing on his punches. Nick did a great job of keeping him at bay with excellent utilization of his reach.

    I thought Cung was supposed to be an actor. That had to be the worst interview I have ever seen. As far as Diaz vs. Lee? If Diaz can stay with his game plan, which you know would be getting Cung to the ground, he will win. If he lets his emotions get in the way and try to stand and bang with Cung, he will lose. Either way, it'll be an exciting fight. What makes it so interesting is, I don't think Cung posesses the power to knockout Diaz on the feet. So if he knocks him down, how will he finish the fight? He'll end up in Diaz's guard trying to ground and pound. Not a good place to be for a San-Shou fighter. That's some great bait for Diaz…

    Cyborg should be fighting guy's. She would be at the top of the list of LW's. She's a monster!

    frank actually looked better against cung lee so what would diaz do to lee. i agree lee is overated and he has fought no body. also cyborg should be checked for a dick the way others are checked for drugs.

    "Checked for a dick", that was too funny…

    How the hell did shamrock lose?? I'm still trying to figure it out, Diaz's jabbing was annoying yes, but dam it frank had alot better movement and didn't take advantage of it, disappointing.

    i dont think nick is in the same league as gsp bro, just my opinion. nick looked good but frank fought like shit so its hard to tell if diaz is really as good as he looks. cyborg was a monster, i dont think gina has a chance but who knows when we will ever see that fight. hopefully strikeforce wont make the same mistakes as elitexc.

    dang. Diaz made me eat my words. I can't tell if frank just had cage rust or if diaz just made him look that bad by how good he fought. Frank looked old in this fight. It just didn't seem like the same frank that fought baroni and cung. O well, my hats off to diaz, he did great.

    diaz and lawlor 2!!!

    i bet if someone pulled down cyborgs shorts they would find 2 big easter eggs

    i can guarantee that gina is 100% woman!

    Frank looked like Ken in that fight .. what a dissapointment … i never really liked Nick … but he always comes to fight i will give him that…

  27. richaaron

    ROTFLMAO!!! You're killin' me Jack! Had I read that 1 second earlier, I would have blown Sierra Mist all over my monitor. Easter eggs, thats a classic…

    Nick didn't win….Frank lost. Big difference.

    Frank looked bad b/c of what Diaz did to him. Frank was fine like he said Diaz was just better. How can u even argue. He admitted he got his ass kicked. So if u kick a guys ass u win lol.

    i dunno im with nichole on this one steve frank didnt look like he looked when he faught cung. Even Cung was talking about before the maineven that he was really surprised frank was fighting so soon and doesnt know how he could be healed up from all of his injuries. cung destroyed his arm it wasnt just some hairline fracture. Frank also had rib problems frank just didnt want to make excuses. Not to mention frank having practically no cartiledge left in his knees the guy is just way past his prime unfortunately. Its hard to believe he used to fight at 205 cuz he looks like an average welterweight bodywise. they looked like they were in a different weight class. Hats off to diaz but i think people are giving him too much credit. he hasnt looked like that in his other fights he was having a hard time against nobodies. all this talk on the net about diaz would beat gsp is laughable. i think cung will knock the shit out of him. if diaz can get cung down tho who knows because diaz has faced a lot harder comp than cung. id like to see diaz lawler 2. after watching that fight lastnight it made me think ken might actually have a chance against frank.

    wow 7 pounds over weight? this is why many feel womens MMA will never be taken seriously. This is two instances in the last year where the top two womens fighters have come in nowhere in the same ballpark of what they need to be. and I have to agree I would say Cyborg probably has testicles, at the bare minimum I wouldn't bet against it.

    Nichole Lesniak, wtf does that even mean?

    Sounds like some cryptic BS logic/excuse a BJ fan would use any time he's lost.

  33. thedude

    April 12, 2009 at 7:43 pm

    no actually its the truth. frank totally lost that fight. i bet if and when diaz fights some real competition he gets his ass kicked again

  34. steve

    Go back and watch the Cung Le fight. He didnt keep Frank at bay with low kicks and keep him off balence and out range perfectly like Diaz did. This was all Diaz. Its a bad match up for Frank. Frank does good when he can square up and hit u but Diaz didnt let him get close enough. He put the jab in Franks face at almost all times and had Frank on the defensive right from the bell. Cung Le didnt do this and thats why he didnt do as good as Diaz did against Shamrock. Stop discrediting Diaz for smacking Frank around.
