Not exactly a top 3 guy that diaz wanted, dont really like this matchup, because Im thinking DHK might just grapple diaz like he did to amir and like guida did to diaz.

Doesnt really deserve a top 3 WW at this point, he has defeated an overweight Rory Markham and a shopworn Marcus Davis. If he gets out grappled by DHK, then its clear he shouldnt have fought a top 3 WW.

But I agree, I think this fight has DHK by decision marked all over it.

This is the stylistic test Diaz needs at 170. I'd have to go with DHK by decision.

DHK takes this one. I'm surprised DHK didn't get a bigger name than someone who just moved up to WW, like an Alves or Fitch.
