Observations from My Couch: Strikeforce's "Ultimate Nick Diaz is Unstoppable"

  • It’s refreshing to see a fighter with finely-honed jiu-jitsu skills (like Roger Gracie) meet with success, especially when it’s so painfully clear he’s got no striking or wrestling skills (like Roger Gracie).
  • I have zero problems with Herschel Walker crushing cans.  No problem whatsoever.
  • Was Jacare trying to emulate an alligator in his victory dance?  I thought for sure the dude was having a seizure.
  • Robbie Lawler is and always will be a bad dude.  Also, bad at jiu-jitsu.
  • For a while there I thought Cyborg was getting the better of the fight.  Then Nick Diaz appeared and told me to stop smoking that crack.
  • I am baffled at how unstoppable Diaz is with his boxing, and based on the impressive string of wins he’s put together and his performances in the cage, it is clear that the only opponents that could defeat him would be the top-level wrestling dry humpers (Georges St. Pierre, Jon Fitch, et al.).
