I like fights! It doesn't matter if it's Boxing,MMA,Cat Fight, or even Tickle fight with some hotties! It's just crazy how MMA and also boxing are losing a lot of good fighters due to age and are being replaced with mediocre fighter that they are trying to blow up! MMA use to have personalities,style and charisma that got you ready to throw down like Shamrock's,Gracie's,Tank,Hughes,Couture,Iceman,Ortiz,Vanderlei. Then they were phased out with some more Bad Ass fighters like BJ Penn, Rua's,Rampage, Griffin,St.Pierre,Silva, Machida. After those big names, I really don't see anymore good melting pot of fights! I know they try to blow up the Edgar vs Maynard for a PPV, that is sad! With that said I think Martinez and Diaz will be a good fight. From what I remember Diaz background was boxing?! I think it's going to come down to Gimmick's to start selling PPV.
Maybe you missed the last Edgar/Maynard fight ? It was f**king great.
And there is a lot of younger newer fighters coming up who will be the next wave of great fighters. Jose Aldo, Anthony Pettis, JDS, Velasquez, Bones Jones, Phil Davis, Ben Henderson, Dominic Cruz are all part of that next wave. All of those guys are under 30 and better than mediocre.
As far as the Diaz brothers go, yes they are immature ignorant little f**ks. They were flipping off fans at the weigh ins for GSP/Shields. Those are some of the reasons Dana has concerns about bringing Nick back to the UFC. They don't deal well with criticism and possess big heads. They are talented fighters but not elite. Shields and Melendez are actually the 2 best fighters out of the Scrap Pack.
