Diaz via whatever, i don't think this will be very even.

I think this is going to be diaz's biggest test since he fought gomi I dont see him walking through Hieron like he has been with his last few opponents.

Should be a good scrap. I can't wait for this card. As much as I wanted to see Riggs/Diaz II, I think that this is a much more relevant fight for the weight class. Riggs has kinda stagnated, while Diaz is on the rise and just getting better.

Thats a good matchup. This card on August 15th is lookin real good right now. This seems like a fun and interesting matchup to watch but I think Diaz is just too talented for Hieron.

I think it's gonna be a good fight, both have great striking, I think Diaz is on another level as a fighter though, and will probably TKO Hieron in the second or third.

This will be a much more competitive match-up than what I assumed Diaz/Riggs was going to be.

How about Diaz/Cyborg and Hieron/Carano though, since they're all interchangeable due to all being the same weight.

Anyone know what actually happened to Riggs?
