You can't stop crazy.

If you've been watching the Diaz vs. Condit Primetime, you've been treated to probably the best set of episodes they've put ever produced. Getting an inner look at Diaz's camp has been an eye opener for the casual and hardcore fans. While people write off Diaz as being crazy, the last 3 episodes have totally changed the way I see Diaz.

First of all, Diaz is the ultimate specimen built for this sport. Long and lean with cardio for days, he has a perfect balance of muscle mass and body fat. This can easily be attributed to his triathlon training in his "off-season". For anyone who saw episode 1 or 2, you saw workouts that would make normal men cry. I've trained for triathlons myself. I've been put through grueling workouts for minor league basketball teams. Nothing compares to what I watched Diaz do in those episodes.

It wasn't until the lastest episode that I truely began to relate to Diaz on a mental level. While watching episode 3, they cut to an short clip from Joe Schilling (current Interim WBC LHW Muay Thai champ) who paraphrased what I had been thinking up to that point...."You can't stop crazy."

Diaz obsesses about his opponent in a fashion that is almost OCD like. You can see it from the way he trains, all day, all night, never stopping. I am positive that Diaz has a some cognitive disorder that creates this obsession, because I get the exact same way about stuff like that, and was diagnosed with very minor OCD. He isn't crazy; he just appears that way because he can't get Condit out of his head. Think of a lion stuck in a cage with a piece of meat in front of him, pacing back and forth....that is what is going on inside the head of Diaz.

After watching this primetime series, I am even more confident that Diaz is going to stop Condit. My prediction? Diaz by whatever he wants in the championship rounds.
