Nick Diaz belongs in the UFC Hall of Fame, despite the fact he’s never won a UFC title … so says Tyron Woodley.
“He’s done enough in his career, in my opinion, to be inducted into the Hall of Fame,” Tyron said on this week’s “Hollywood Beatdown.”
Diaz famously began his UFC career back in 2003 with an armbar submission victory over Jeremy Jackson.
He beat guys like Robbie Lawler before a showdown with Diego Sanchez on “The Ultimate Fighter 2” finale (Diaz lost that fight).
Nick jumped to Strikeforce, where he DOMINATED — winning all 7 of his fights between 2009 and 2011, winning the welterweight title and defending it 4 times.
Eventually, the UFC bought Strikeforce and brought Diaz back to the UFC roster where he beat BJ Penn and lost some epic battles to guys like Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva.
Now, 37-year-old Diaz is rumored to be making a comeback … but Tyron thinks he’s already got a Hall of Fame resume.
There’s a lot more in the episode … including Tyron explaining why he’s FINALLY ready to fight Colby Covington on Sept. 19th, a fight that’s been talked about for roughly 2 years.
