I just don't see any LW in the UFC walking Nate Diaz down with his striking being what it is ..... Millers face tonight will tell the story as Cerrone's did and Donald Cerrone isn't 5` 9" like Miller is. I had Miller picked all week, but have since changed this pick to Nate Diaz by UD based on his striking ability as well as his overall improved skillset. Nate will have a massive reach advantage and should do enough damage early on to slow Millers late round roll.

I just changed my pick today as well. I went into this one thinking that when Diaz has trouble, it's against solid wrestlers, but I can't get past the striking edge or reach coupled with Nate's sub game if he does get taken down. I hope Miller wins, but the more I think about this one, the more it favors Diaz to me.
