ANDERSON SILVA IN CHOREOGRAPHED RETURN
San Francisco, CA- If you did a Google search for MMA fighter Nick Diaz you’d find a troubled young man. Once a champion with the now defunct Strikeforce MMA brand at 170 lbs., Diaz has had a fight (win) taken off his record because he had more THC (Marijuana) in his system than anybody ever tested by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Last night against Anderson Silva (34-6 MMA, 17-2 UFC), the Stockton, CA resident Diaz (26-10 MMA, 7-7 UFC) looked beyond pathetic.
NICK HAD EVERYTHING GOING AGAINST HIM
Yes, Nick was outsized. Yes, Nick was brought in to lose. Yes, Nick did just enough to make it appear Silva is back at 39, this after a KO loss to current middleweight (185) king Chris Weidman and Weidman breaking Silva’s leg in a rematch. Offensively, Nick Diaz was null and void. He had nothing and while he was in against a much bigger foe, the Nick Diaz that started a riot on CBS TV which canceled Strikeforce on the network because of the melee a few years ago, the Nick Diaz with fire in his belly is deceased!
SILVA LOOKED “STELLAR” THROUGHOUT
With Silva fighting a “Dead Man Walking” in Diaz, the Spider looked like he was 25 and not 39. Credit President Dana White and UFC matchmaker Joe Silva for “getting the right” opponent for the come-backing Brazilian icon. Scores were 50-45 twice & 49-46 all for Silva who will have a meeting with family members before deciding as to whether or not he will fight on at 39. Beating Chris Weidman appears to a longshot, thus Siva would best be served to walk away now.
