@nickdiaz209 won that fight in my.opinion. he is what every fighter should be a true martial artists who comes to fight. Well prepared and with a gameplan. Not one that involves running from a fight. Why come to fight if you gonna run. Hackney was running when we fought and I had to take the fight to him, Shamrock showed up not to lose in our rematch its a shame really. I for one am proud of Nick and happy he is part of Grace Jiu-jitsu family.

@Nickdiaz209 is a whining baby. When something doesnt go his way he quits! Lost any respect i might have had.

he didn’t quit he is voicing his disapproval of the judging system and wants no part of it. Same way I stopped fighting on the 90’s when they put rules in the UFC. Nothing wrong with that its his choice. Right or wrong is a matter of opinion but ability to chose is for Nick only.
