Diaz boxing is better than Pettis. 

Pettia kicking game is better than Diaz.

Ground game for both at a high level but I give it to Diaz.

Wrestling won’t be a factor in this fight.

Diaz Cardio is off the chain.

I give the win to Diaz with his pressure, cardio, and volume. Pettis tends to fold under high pressure fighters moving forward.

Nate has trouble dealing with kicks, and explosive strikers. 

Pettis has a hard time dealing with pressure and good boxing. 

I dont think nate would beat wonderboy. I dont think pettis beats conor. 

Should be a fun fight. Who is the favorite?

I see Pettis bringing the thunder, I'll be impressed (but not surprised) if Nate survives it. I'm a huge fan of Nate, I'll lose my shit if he turns the tide.

Would love to see a ground battle between these two. But it will probably be entirely on the feet.

Standing it's hard to call. Nate will probably chew him up with punches, but Pettis has more one-shot power.

Would be a war if it was 5.

Got a feeling Pettis starts off fast and Nate’s cardio gives him the edge towards the end but it’s too late.

Pettis decisions Nate 29-28

Exactly this, Pettis will get tired, a little beat up and proceed to roll over.

I definitely think Pettis wins. Maybe even a headkick.
