Strikeforce Diaz would have possibly beat them all. Dana drama Diaz competes with all, probably loses 6/10.

If you stop taxing the rich, America won't NEED a middle class. The people that got lucky over the last couple generations already have all the money they need and don't need more customers. (R)ight?

This has been true for a long time. I could maybe see him winning a couple of those, but the bottom line is the guy gets talked about like he's some world beater, and he has virtually zero top ten wins, ever.

HUGE Diaz fan, and I somewhat agree with TS. It's very hard for me to see nick beating a top 6-8 Welterweight in the UFC. For Elite fighters in their division It seems as if it is very simple to out-gameplan the Diaz brothers. Especially Nick, I noticed in all his recent fights in the UFC when his opponent was out-smarting him Nick Diaz didn't do anything about it. Condit fight he never attempted to cut off condit and check leg kicks, GSP fight, when Nick was doing good in the stand up later in the fight he literally just stood there and let GSP out point him and take him down. Nick has no sense of urgency whatsoever in his fights to beat top fighters in the division.

Just my 2 cents

Favorite Fighters - Diaz Brothers, Lyoto Machida, Cain Velasquez, Renan Barao, Jose Aldo

You are jumping to that conclusion. I was just pointing out the fallacies in the post I was responding to. No one has ko'd nick in the way GSP was by Serra.

He'd definitely lose the first round to virtually all of them (except Kampmann, who is just tailor made for Diaz to own standing), but there are several on that list I wouldn't trust to put him away before gassing.

You can quote this, I'm the Moby Dick of dopeness - Redman

No one but the privileged ever believe they are involved in a pure meritocracy

He didn't have time or training partners to get ready for gsp, and no one in the world thought that the natural born killer would fight for points.

Idc who you are, NO ONE thought NBK would go
backwards and fight for judges at the time. He had never done that before.
Your name is apt.
