I couldn't to be honest. I think Nate has a great chance on the feet but taking Edson down is far from likely. Edson has excellent athleticism and TDD, Diaz is not athletic, not fast or overwhelmingly strong, and never been known for wrestling or making good adjustments.

I did consider this as well. He didn't show good fight IQ in his head kick loss. However, I believe Diaz has learned from it. HOPE he has learned from it lol. I agree that Diaz has a great chance on the feet. I just hope no one forgets his splendid grappling.

Bad match up for Nate stylisticly. Kicks are his kryptonite.

Josh Thompson really kinda proved that you can beat the Diaz Brothers without throwing a single punch.

I would put money on Edson.
