What do you guys think of this match up?

We could use it as a #1 contender fight, and to break Diaz back in after that serious lay off.

Two great WW fighters, both who are known for their hands.

Thoughts? Phone Post

I'm a huge Diaz fan, but after watching Hendricks just drop Kampman, I'd be worried the way nick's style leaves his chin open to big shots, i mean his chin is good, but Hendricks hits fucking hard, i think he could submit him though, it'd be a good fight

Tbh, I would rather see them just give Hendricks the shot. I mean he has 5 in a row, waldburger, pierce, fitch, koscheck and Kampmann. Whereas Diaz is coming off of a suspension and a loss. Just doesn't make sense to me.

If GSP fights Silva they need to make this fight. Nick finishes Hendrix. Phone Post

I love watching Diaz as much as the next guy but it won't be near as enjoyable to see Diaz spend 4:59 on his back every round.

Nick Diaz is about as exciting a fighter there is but people need a reality check when it comes to him versus elite wrestlers.

Johny said he has no desire to fight Nick, and would rather wait up to 10 months for a title shot. 

 

Wise choice, in my opinion.

Oh come on. I'm not saying Hendricks would beat Diaz, but it would be an extremely competitive fight.

Hendricks is a stylistic nightmare for Diaz. Paul Daley had Nick in big, big trouble and I think we can all agree after tonight that Hendricks definitely has more power than Daley.

That being said, I think Diaz is a better striker and submission artist, but he tends to get tagged a lot in his fights and I don't know if he can afford to do that against Hendricks.

There's also the fact that Hendricks is a 4 time All-American, and Diaz has been outwrestled by far less accomplished wrestlers than Hendricks.

This.

I feel if a title shot for Hendricks is out of the question, Diaz would be the fireworks we need. Phone Post

Plus they also have the Grappling dynamics that would possibly let us see a lot more of their games - something useful in getting an idea of how they'd fair against GSP Phone Post

I am assuming we would be calling Hendricks the #1 right now Phone Post
