LW fight I wanna see: Joe Lauzon vs Nate Diaz

it would make for a good scrap. many would expect a brawl because it has all the potential to be a dogfight but surprisingly i think it would turn into a ground fight with nate maybe mounting him and then taking his back and choking him out when he tries to escape. anything could happen tho but that would be a good match to see

I dont think Lauzon would wanna trade with him, so it will quite quickly become a grappling match and I dont think anyone could seriously count Lauzon out in a grappling match with anyone at 155 right now...

 

Lauzon's stand-up is pretty average though, so Diaz would of course wanna keep the fight there

I don't see how this fight would even be close, I see guys like Pettis and Cerrone above Lauzon to an extent I don't see Lauzon ever being able to catch up. Now I see Nate a step above Pettis and Cerrone at that.

 

I'd say round 2 finish for Nate, probably a choke after abusing Lauzon every second prior.

 

Want to talk about a cool fight now? Lauzon vs Charles Oliveira at 145 or even Lauzon vs Jim Miller.

Sorry bro, I would have Pettis beating Diaz any day of the week...

 

The two fights you suggested are good though

Lauzon has said he couldn't make 145. So that won't happen.

 

Also as much as it pains me to admit, Lauzon is not on Diaz's level. I think he could choke out cowboy though if he got him to the ground.

I wouldn't count him out but I would just expect him to be able to survive.

We saw what happened when he fought a real jiu jitsu guy in G-Sot who has a heavy top game.

Diaz doesn't have the same heavy top game but I just don't see Lauzon being able to submit Diaz--anything could happen though.

I was thinking this the other night, but changed my mind at posting, seeing as how I thought everyone would flame on about Lauzon not being anywhere near his level, but I would love to see the fight. I do think Nate has the advantage on the feet, but on the ground it would be extremely interesting to see. I would like to see Lauzon Cowboy also. I'm surprised there arent as many Diaz huggers jumping in saying no way in hell and so on.
