Sure the UFC is all about two guys stepping into an Octagon and trying to beat the living daylights out of each for 15 minutes.
But they’re also just doing the sport they love with another person who loves it just as much.
Beneath all the hype – it’s the respect the fighters show which makes them truly great.
BJ Penn on Diaz: “He’s a great fighter who I respect and I like. Nick and his brother Nate actually came out to help me train for my UFC 101 match against Kenny Florian. We’re not close friends, but both of the Diaz brothers have really helped me out in the past and we have hung out. This isn’t a fight either of us would have asked for, but we are both at the top of the division and there’s no one else for us to fight.”
