Glad this fight is finally happening, I remember that it was supposed to a while back, but never did. I have to take Diaz in this one, he has been on a tear and looking fantastic.

Sakurai is a perfect style for Diaz to beat, I mean unless he gets crazy and leg kicks a lot.

Diaz should beat Sakurai. Personally I want to see Nick come back to the UFC eventually....where the real talent is.

Love the fight but Diaz should take it.
