I love bisping and his perspective on fighters and the fight game. He is a really great analyst!! As far as nick and nate go, they are two of my fave fighters. Two of the toughest, and realist dudes in the fight game and they are both exciting fighters to watch. All of which are reasons why win or lose, they are still fan favorites!

You just gotta dig Bisping, as the man is not only intelligent, but he knows the fight game and he is always respectful...

These guys won't say it openly because that would discredit Lawler's performance, but the match was over before it began. Nick lost match in the fight camp. He was way out of shape. It is impressive his skills carried him all the way to the third round. Try fighting while out of shape and you'll have an epiphany on the subject. Lawler's preparation carried him and won him the fight in conjunction with Nick's lack of preparation and Lawler was better man that night as a result.

It’s obvious he didn’t wanna do the work. That’s the bottom line he didn’t want to do the work, and he didn’t.

Whatever the reason, Diaz looked like he just showed up for weed money and had NO interest even being in the cage. He looked and acted like a shadow of a shadow of his former self. It was one of the more saddening come back fights.

Thanks for talking about the fear aspect. A lot of men living with fear. Fighting is a pure reflection of the problems of everyday life.

Hey Michael, you mentioned that the weight cut is stupid, and the hilarious hypocrisy of the body is a temple, ok time to cut.. If you could change it, what would you do? Just everyone fight at their walk-around weight? That seems the most logical.. ✌️

First i thought Lawler would win because a break from 6 years of not fighting would be to long for Diaz. Then i thought Diaz would lose because he said in the pre interview he doesnt wanna fight anymore but does not know what to do else. And when the news came out that Nick wants to fight at 185 lbs it was just clear that the result would be like it was. But Lawler also fought better than the last fights we saw him. Congrats to Robbie!

Love and Respect Nick Diaz. Why wasn't Richard Perez training him, or in his corner? Nick claimed his management doesn't know what their doing. Jake Shields said Nick has Snakes around him. Why doesn't Nick find an honorable team to support him?

Good that Michael talks about this weight cutting bullshit. It just shouldn’t happen. People should have there normal weight and don’t weight cut at all and just fight. If they don’t go crazy on there diet after camp then why should there be a problem?🤔

Same thing happened to Cain Velasquez, vs Junior Dos Santos in the 1st fight in 2011. He had terrible ring rust coming off an injury, hadn't fought in a year, therefore he was knocked out within a few seconds. Same thing with Mark Coleman in 1998, against Pete Williams who wore him down, then knocked The Hammer out with a kick to the face.

Lawler crushed him, and I knew it was a certainty. Lawler has fought the best on the UFC and trains hard and takes care of himself. Nick has mad skills, but his training regimen was suspect. Lawler meant business, look at the weigh in, even coming out Ro now looked confident and focused, razor sharp, Nick looked a little wary, not confident, Robbie was a beast and it showed

Volkanovski, at the end of the fight, said he was sorry he talked bad about Ortega because he turned up. I thought that was the classiest thing I've seen someone do in a long time.

Nick Diaz has said it him self. He goes into train and smokes before hand, it probably gets rid of that anxiety. Look at the Silva fight…

CaptainDarling 21 day ago
spot on and real as always mr bisping sir..AND NEVER!! and i mean EVER! would i have thought Darren Tyll a scouser. would Explain and get an understanding reaction over the exact words spoken... NICK DIAZ is an utter Boss! but Robby Lawler is a friend now of his, and a TOTALY RELEVEN'T Fighter. hes a handfull for anyone in the top 5. Nick Diaze (i assume) felt like he'd been fed to the lion on his MMA first fight comeback... remember what Lawler Did to askren...ufc think lawlers some gatekeeper now Donald's done... Robbie Lawler is no fkn gatekeeper!!!. Lawler Lost because he knocked the consciousness back into the guy he just knocked out... he flicks ppls switches! Nick Diaze should not have fought a relevant in shape Veteran, that has kept up with the Meta. when i heard this fight from Jens pulver on ufc twitch, a while ago. (which i urge ppl to visit), i didnt like it, i like Nick, and Robbie is an animal veteran,, so no, didnt want this from the start, this all felt Very Trilleresk ,, the same as the askren fight, plz plz, lets make that BMF belt for veterans of over 10 year MMA and over and Separate from the top title contention ..(you cant compete for BMF or call it the GOAT belt, if your ranked) Nick Diaz vs Donald Ceroni that was the fight to make, or Even hold him off until Mcgreggor was fixed. because we all know his contender days are past.

You are a class act Bisping. You are as real as they come and I really appreciate that.
Excellent job on clearing the misconception that the writers are trying to sprew . Only a real fighter knows what another real fighter is feeling .
Joey 21 day ago
Gotta say I’m really happy that Bisping has found this niche commentating, podcasting and making videos. He’s really good at it. I think he’s gonna be doing this for a long time and be able to stay in the game using his skills, knowledge and personality to contribute to the sport and stay relevant for decades. That’s a pretty rare fate for a fighter and a win for everyone.

If Nick seems not confident, miserable, and like he doesn't want to be there, that means he's ready to fight. That's always been his process.

I feel like people who haven't played serious sports dont get that. It's not the fear of the pain or injuries its the fear of failing infront of people and failing yourself and others who put their faith in you. It's why winning is so exhilarating!

Bisbing your the man!! You explained all that perfectly anybody that can’t understand that is just plain ol stupid. If your a fan and don’t know how Nick Diaz operates then you haven’t been a fan for long. Nick has always had trouble speaking in interviews. Fighting is that dudes life. Win or lose Always a fan of Diaz brothers

02SubaruWRX 21 day ago
I know how the human mind works, Nick is feeling worried because Robbie is the only one who has anything to prove he lost to Diaz 17 years ago and never got vengeance and now is his chance PLUS he is still semi-active and in good shape, Nick is just being reasonable and second guessing himself and Nick knows damn well if Robbie gets him hurt he will end up Stockton slapping him and throwing his hands in the air like “who’s scared now homie?” on some spiteful type shit. Nick is just coming off the couch and could care less about the fight, while everyone else is hyping it up and making it a bigger deal than it is. So his energy is not 100% focused and on point that is for sure

I think it’s less about him being scared and more that he is uncertain since it’s been a long time since he was in the octagon. That uncertainty probably goes beyond just the fight, but just where he’s at in his life.

Bisping and Cruz are 2 of the best fight analysts in the sport … no bullshit no bias commentating or overviews. Sometimes I feel myself getting more excited about bisping calling a fight more than the actual fight itself.

Reporters are absolute trash and MMA journos are no different... thats why they asked Nick all those stupid irrelevant questions and ignored obvious ones like the weight.

This is how legend fights should be. It's not a fight to climb the rankings so let both guys be at their best

If you had a 12 gauge to Nick's head, I still can't see him being scared.
