overlooked classic slugfest

Inoue IMO would have won if he was the same size. he hit Diaz with some good good punches

Great one! Much budo in that scrap! Nick's pace was ultimately too much. Corner saved Inoue, it would have gotten worse from there. Diaz still looked completely fresh energy wise.

RE: Katsuya Inoue vs. Nick Diaz. Good fight
Nick looked 1-2 weight classes bigger. If Katsuya had the same size he probably could have dished out much more lasting damage.

Japanese dude was too thin, but showed great heart. He lost in the most honorable way possible. dude did not stop and did not show one ounce of fear even though he was getting outclassed

Nick's punches look weak, but they build up cumulatively with great effect

The Diaz brothers had a method to their madness. Their diet and endurance training allowed to fight at a weight that usually gave them a size advantage without cutting a great deal.

RE: Katsuya Inoue vs. Nick Diaz. Good fight
Perhaps "method to their madness hinted at something more abstract" I simply meant they could comfortably fight at lower weight classes despite being 6' tall because they consumed a mostly plant based diet and trained like endurance athletes. They do mostly aerobic training as their strength and conditioning instead of anaerobic type conditioning that seems to be par the course for mma athletes. Seemed to work well for them

Yeah mostly a pace thing just constant forward pressure and peppering making their opponent constantly think and defend and move and expend energy. Coupled with the trash talk which made it harder for opponents to get in their own groove. As their career progressed they would sit down on their punches a little more with some opponents, especially to the body. I noticed Nick start to do that more around the Daley fight in Strikeforce

RE: Katsuya Inoue vs. Nick Diaz. Good fight
i like Nick somewhat because he has a deep respect for the japanese fighting spirit. he seems to trash talk the japanese fighters less

he once famously said fighting in Japan made him feel like a warrior while fighting in the UFC made him feel like 2 dollard stripper

i can't find the clip anymore though

I remeber that clip too. I remeber you liking him because of that. He would frequently mention Pride having the ideal rule set throught his career. Im having no luck with finding the infamous warrior-stripper quote.

RE: Katsuya Inoue vs. Nick Diaz. Good fight
I agree, I still find some of the pure aspect of hand to hand combat they can't completely taint once the athletes are engaged. The warrior spirit aspect definitely feels tainted and sterilized and feels cheaper so to speak. Not as exhilarating as the essence of what pride or even earlier UFC captured. I grew up watching boxing too though which has always been really corrupt so its also a familiar cheap, gambling based, vegas type feel unfortunately.
