Pros' Pick: Diaz vs. Miller


Michael McDonald: I’m going to go with Diaz. I think his range is going to play a factor. They are both really good on the ground, and I don’t see Nate getting submitted at all. Miller might be able to take him down and control him, but he’s going to have to get into that range first. I think Nate might have the advantage based on that, being able to keep him out at range and land those long shots.

Cung Le: Nate wins this by decision.

Kyle Kingsbury: I’m on the fence with this one -- have been since they announced it -- but I’m leaning towards the middle of the fence on this one. Still can’t decide. I’m thinking the top of the Octagon. That’s a nice place to sit and think.

Yves Edwards: I’m taking Nate in that one. Neither one [of them] will get tired, and Jim will have to take him down so he stops getting punched in the face. When he does, I think Nate will still be too dangerous off his back. Nate [wins] by late sub or decision.

Travis Browne: I think Miller’s gonna take it. His wrestling is [great]. I think he’ll be able to close the gap on the striking, and I think his submission defense is good enough to where he can kind of stay on top and grind one out.

I think Cerrone lost that fight on the mental side... Like Anderson flapping his hands and daring Forest to stand and box. Donal completely abandoned everything he does best, to just stand there and eat punches. If Cerrone had kick-boxed like he was supposed to, he could have taken that win.Not sure Miller will get suckered like that.

After watching Nate Diaz find his range with the jab against Gomi I vowed to never bet against him again. If he finds that range again tonight Jimmy's in trouble. I have Nate winning by decision over at
