Tailor made for Diaz imo for title hype, but all that shit aside this is one hell of a match to make.
I can only hope Diaz will also get a crack at Dunham/Roller.
I think the fight favor's Miller personally. Diaz struggles against strong wrestlers that he can't easily submit. I wouldn't be surprised if Miller did exactly what Guida did to him. Your right though, it should be a great fight. Diaz seems to be coming into his own now.
Is Miller really that excellent of a take-em-down wrestler though? When the fight does hit the ground, I would concur that Miller will have no trouble leveraging his strengths into a competitive bout, one in which he'll probably find the top and be able to hold onto a strong position, if not pass into a better. But if Clay Guida is the standard for what Diaz has trouble with, Miller might have trouble getting Diaz into that position in the first place.
It'll be fun. I hope Miller wins, but I envision a fighter where Diaz continues his transformation from a fighter that's using his big brother's name for a free pass into the UFC into a fighter that emulates his big brother in the cage enough that he's proven his worth. He might drop the first round, but as it is with the Diaz brothers, more alike now than ever, he'll wear out Miller with his hands and it'll feel like watching a predator toy with his prey by the time the third round begins.
