UFC 183 free fight: Nick Diaz vs. Drew Fickett full video

Let's hop into the MMA time machine and go 10 years back to UFC 51, when Nick Diaz fought Drew Fickett on the opening preliminary card bout of the evening.

Nick Diaz will be in the main event of UFC 183 this Saturday against Anderson Silva, but let's flash back to 2005, when Diaz was buried on the preliminary card of UFC 51: Ortiz vs. Belfort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Coming off a thrilling split decision loss vs. Karo Parisyan, Diaz was booked against promotional newcomer Drew Fickett.

One classic Nick Diaz moment came at the halfway point of the 1st (and only) round, when Fickett was on his back with a loose hold of Diaz's neck but otherwise absorbing body punches. When Diaz's head broke free, he uttered "Whatcha gonna do now, bitch?". Evidently, Fickett was unable to do much of anything and was stopped with a heavy ground-and-pound assault with just 5 seconds remaining in the 1st.

You can watch the full video at the top of the page, as we count down the days to Silva vs. Diaz on January 31st.
