Michael Guymon: Diaz takes this one by annoying his opponent to death.

Mike Ciesnolevicz: Nick Diaz always wins fights that I think he will lose. He has become one of the top guys in the game with a very unorthodox yet well-rounded style, not to mention he is as tough as they come. I think he executes his game plan perfectly and wears Zaromskis down by throwing hundreds of punches before finishing him with a kimura or rear choke. Diaz then gets on the microphone and says, "What do you want from me man? I just woke up!"

Stav Economou: Marius is good, but not good enough to beat Diaz. Diaz wins (via) second-round submission.

Tom Gavrilos: This fight will go to Diaz. He will outwork Marius and most likely catch him in a submission.

Ray Elbe: Nick Diaz proves once again why medical marijuana should be supported by everyone in the USA by winning this fight at 4:20 of the first round with a choke so tight it literally vaporizes Zaromskis to sleep.

Robin Black: I would put some money on Zaromskis for the upset, but, frankly, Diaz scares the s--t out of me. He might hunt down everyone who bets against him and cut them all. I don't want to get cut. Especially in the face. No, I'll just go with Diaz.

Benji Radach: I gotta go with our American fighter Nick Diaz. He has to watch out for that left tricky high kick, but I think Nick knows how to train and can prepare to take that out of his game. CIRCLE TO THE LEFT NICK (laughs)! I think Nick is more of a veteran, and his style of boxing will throw the foreign fighter off of his game.

Kultar Gill: Nick Diaz by submission in the first round. Soon as it hits the ground, it's going to be over.

Gabe Ruediger: Nick is more well-rounded and should pull it off. Zaromskis can always land that head kick, which he seems to be landing at will, but Nick’s very game standing and a black belt in BJJ.

Stephane Vigneault: Nick Diaz all the way by TKO. He is incredible since he left the UFC.

Roland Sarria: Diaz will press him and will win by stoppage in the first round.

Ricardo Liborio: Diaz by submission, round one.

Erik Paulson: Nick Diaz is at the top of his game right now, and I really enjoy watching him fight. He really imposes his outstanding game plan every time he fights. For me, with his upcoming fight, I see him the victor. He has all ranges covered and is definitely great at all three ranges, which makes him a dangerous opponent.

Din Thomas: I got Nick Diaz by Stockton gang signs beoootch!

Zac George: Marius could head kick the Diazinator into a full-blown coma. However, I see Diaz “smoking” him on the ground.

Jake Shields: This should be a great fight, and I have an obvious bias since I am good friends and training partners with Nick. But that being said, I think this fight will start out super exciting and high-paced. But Nick will bring too much pressure and will end up submitting or KOing him late in the second round.

Duke Roufus: Nick Diaz by mean mug, b--ch!

Luigi Fioravanti: Marius is unpredictable and unorthodox on his feet, which can pose a threat to any fighter. Diaz is tough as hell and has fought some of the best. He is more experienced than Marius and very good on the ground, where he will be most dangerous. Diaz by submission.

Micah Miller: Nick by submission. I don’t think there is such a thing as jiu jitsu in Lithuania.

Kit Cope: Zaromskis is a bad dude, but Nick is a world of problems for any man. Everybody looks at Nick’s punches and thinks that they won’t be effective, but Nick has a way of slowly draining the life out of you and then finishing you just before you’d take a nap on your own. Plus he can take a helluva wallop! My prediction is that exactly that will happen to Zaromskis. I see another Gomi/Diaz-type of battle with Nick again finishing the fight after s--t talking at Marius the whole way through!

Pros who picked Diaz: 20
Pros who picked Zaromskis: 0

Wow 20-0...I think that's a first. I mean I have Diaz winning and all, but I figured someone would've taken Zaromskis.

Some of those quotes are classic, but yeah...I see Nick dictating the pace in this fight and eventually subbing Zaromskis in the 2nd or 3rd rd.
