Mike Dolce Doesn’t Believe Nick Diaz is The Top Welterweight Contender
Posted by Larry Csonka on 11.29.2012



- Mike Dolce disagrees with Firas Zahabi's opinion on Nick Diaz as the top welterweight contender.

On Nick Diaz: "Nick hasn't beaten anybody substantial in the welterweight division to earn that shot. Nick certainly will be in line soon. He's got to get a couple of wins. Johny's got those wins already."

On GSP's Team Avoiding Hendricks: "I believe that they are avoiding Johny because Johny is a better wrestler than Georges St-Pierre, and Johny possess knockout power to defeat Georges," Dolce said. "If Georges can't take down Johny, he's got to stand. If Georges has to stand with Johny, he's in a lot of trouble."

Comparing the Records of Diaz and Hendricks: "I'm looking at Nick's record right now," he said. "He beat K.J. Noons, a 155-pounder; Evangelista 'Cyborg' (Santos), and who is he? Then Paul Daley – all right, Paul Daley's tough. Then B.J. Penn, a very uninspired B.J. Penn, who's a lightweight. He beat two lightweights, one very fringe welterweight, and Paul Daley.

Then you look at who Johny fought. Johny fought Mike Pierce, who's very tough and underrated. Then he comes in and knocks out Fitch, beats Koscheck, and knocks out Kampmann. It's hands down – Johny deserves a shot. But Johny's not going to call anybody out. He's not going to get into a Twitter battle. Johny's in the gym right now, training – that's what he does."

On GSP vs. Diaz: "I think GSP is the box office draw," Dolce said. "If he shadowboxes for 25 minutes on a pay-per-view, he's still going to outdraw nearly every other athlete in the UFC. He'll make a little bit more money if he fights Nick Diaz – but he's not going to make a lot more money if he fights Nick Diaz. He will make a lot more money if he fights Anderson Silva. So it's not about the money. It's about protecting his belt. He thinks he can beat Nick Diaz – they don't think they can beat Johny Hendricks. And I agree."
