UFC Quick Quote: Nick Diaz will get knocked out by Anderson Silva

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

"Anderson is finishing his healing process. He already started his camp and will be ready on January. Diaz is a good fighter, he once was world champion at Strikeforce and a top contender in his division. Nick is ready for a five round fight and Anderson has to knock him out. Anderson will do it, I'm sure."

Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, who trains with former middleweight champion Anderson Silva, tells R7 (via Bloody Elbow) he's confident his Blackhouse broski will put the screws to Nick Diaz in their 185-pound super fight, which headlines the UFC 183 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Jan. 31, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Naturally, both fighters have some hurdles to jump beforehand. "The Spider" needs to get his surgically-repaired leg back to 100 percent, while Diaz goes to the scorecards following his fight with Johnny Law. Which longtime veteran will reign supreme in "Sin City?" We know what "Minotauro" thinks, how about you?
