Strikeforce Nick Diaz

Ah, there’s nothing like a good morning workout to get the blood flowing. Well, if you’re too lazy to hit the gym this AM, workout vicariously by watching Nick Diaz (pictured) do 23 minutes of work on a speed bag.

Legendary boxing trainer Freddie Roach once said Diaz is MMA’s best boxer. If what Diaz has done inside the cage hasn’t convinced you thus far, perhaps this video will help drive Roach’s point home.

The only thing missing is the final punch that makes the bag explode, like in Rocky. Well, I guess everyone can’t be as cool as the “Italian Stallion.”

Diaz challenges welterweight king Georges St-Pierre for his throne this Saturday at UFC 158.

The event takes place inside Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.
