Since Nick Diaz missed his UFC 158 open workout, we shot footage of what it WOULD have looked like

Since Nick Diaz missed his UFC 158 open workout, we shot footage of what it WOULD have looked like

Takanori Gomi vs. Nick Diaz is the greatest fight in MMA history. Believing anything else is just silly. Forrest Griffin vs. Stephan Bonnar was a sloppy fight that led to a generation of people that tuned into UFC solely for chaotic bouts. However at the time, Pride FC harnessed the very best of fighters and placed them in a ring which, as we all know, is more advantageous to fighters that finish fights. The statistics are there, somewhere. Go have a look. If you get pinned in a corner in a cage, your opponent could literally just stay on top while doing minimal damage. In a ring, if you venture to a corner not only is the fight reset in the middle of the ring, but if your opponent does in fact stall, it results in a yellow card — penalizing the amount of his fight purse.

Before I drone on about the advantages of the ring over the cage, perhaps you should just watch this video our @LayzieTheSavage shot of Nick Diaz having his own open-workout in Stockton, California before missing his official open-workouts in Montreal, Canada.
