MMA Nation Round-Up provides you with daily coverage of the latest in news, multimedia, and analysis throughout the world of combat sports. Nick Diaz is fighting on Saturday and he actually showed up to the press availability yesterday so naturally he dominates our news.

First up, this video has Nick claiming it might be his last fight ever:

- Diaz also talked about his need to overcome his admiration for B.J. Penn if he's going to beat him. 

- MMA Mania takes a long hard look at the grappling of Penn and Diaz.

- Bloody Elbow has the betting lines for UFC 137.

MMA Nation's Thomas Myers spoke to Matt Mitrione about his upcoming bout with Cheick Kongo and his status as an almost-but-not-quite-nearly-there contender in the UFC's heavyweight division.

- While we're talking about Matt MitrioneBloody Elbow's Fraser Coffeen took a long, hard look at his striking. Matt better hope Kongo's coaches don't read it (hint: He drops his hands!)

- Bloody Elbow's Dallas Winston dissects the two UFC 137 bouts that will be shown on Spike TV: Griffin vs. Palaszewskiand Cerrone vs. Siver.
