Tailor made for Diaz imo for title hype, but all that shit aside this is one hell of a match to make.

I can only hope Diaz will also get a crack at Dunham/Roller.

Miller's already got this in the bag! Then again I said the same thing about Donald Cerrone...

I think the fight favor's Miller personally. Diaz struggles against strong wrestlers that he can't easily submit. I wouldn't be surprised if Miller did exactly what Guida did to him. Your right though, it should be a great fight. Diaz seems to be coming into his own now.

This has 3 round war written all over it, as I don't see wither guy being finished.

If this is the case, i'd lean toward Miller, as I think he's the better wrestler. However, I think Diaz has the ability to submit anyone off his back. I give Diaz the advantage standing, but if Miller is smart, he won't play with fire standing up for too long.

This could easily go either way, but I lead towards Miller. Barely

Is Miller really that excellent of a take-em-down wrestler though? When the fight does hit the ground, I would concur that Miller will have no trouble leveraging his strengths into a competitive bout, one in which he'll probably find the top and be able to hold onto a strong position, if not pass into a better. But if Clay Guida is the standard for what Diaz has trouble with, Miller might have trouble getting Diaz into that position in the first place.

It'll be fun. I hope Miller wins, but I envision a fighter where Diaz continues his transformation from a fighter that's using his big brother's name for a free pass into the UFC into a fighter that emulates his big brother in the cage enough that he's proven his worth. He might drop the first round, but as it is with the Diaz brothers, more alike now than ever, he'll wear out Miller with his hands and it'll feel like watching a predator toy with his prey by the time the third round begins.

CALLED IT!
i said this in live discussion right after Miller subbed Guillard and also somewhere on this site (too lazy to find it).

this should be a great fight and i really hope this fight is mostly played out on the ground

nnnnnoooooooooooo..........

I don't want Miller to possibly lose, b/c it's a tough match up. Standing and on the ground.

Didn't Guida and Maynard struggle taking Diaz down? So will Miller probably and Diaz is so lengthy on the feet.

My buddy showed me this on his iPhone tonight and needless to say we spent the majority of the time discussing it. I love this fight and I find it very difficult to pick a winner.

dont really remember the Guida fight but i know Maynard was content in standing the entire fight, the 2nd time around, and not take it to the ground (like Cerrone). i thought Diaz won that fight tbh.
