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.
