First I gotta say I love watching both of the Diaz brothers....tough as nails, great conditioning, great BJJ, nice (unorthadox) strikes, and aggressive as hell. Not sure if Nate is quite as good as Nick though, so I think I will have to pick Josh on this one....although I am now gauranteed too see blood bath!!

I like Neer in this one. Neer has tons of experience and a definite strength advantage. I think Neer keeps it on the feet as much as possible and KO's Nate in the 1st or 2nd.

I like Neer, especially at lightweight, he has victories ovwer good opponents and when I foudn out he was sceduled to fight soon I hoped it would be a top notch opponent for him to climb the ladder, but Diaz poses a very bad matchup, Neer's game is get on top of you and just pound you out he doesn't really pass guard that well but he can do a lot of damage from the guard which happens to be Diaz's strength I'm sure Nate loves the idea of a fighter who wants o stay in Diaz's guard, I do think Neer wins it though but its goign to be dangerous I'm also surprised what an underdog he is

Neer is a underrated fighter. I wouldn't be suprised if he gives Diaz a darn good fight. I am picking Nate. Because, I'm a fan of Nate but this is a dangerous matchup for him. I could see this fight going to a decision.

Will be a good fight and I think Neer will do good in the first round like Batman did, but ultimately will get submitted in the second just like Kurt also.
