Rory wins the first two, then loses every round after that.

3 rounds and it's Rory's to lose, 5 rounds and Nick is a lock IMO.

People say that it is a great fight to make. Any fight really with Nick Diaz is a great fight to make. You know that it's going to be exciting and competitive.

Nick isn't ready for Rory. Rory would prove to be superior every where. Rory would tune him up with the jab, ala GSP. Unlike GSP though,Rory has diverse combinations that he can follow up his jab with. Rory would have Nick backing up all night on the feet. If Nick finds success with his boxing, Rory turns it into a kickboxing match. Rory also takes him down when ever he wants and beats on him, maybe even slams him a few times like he did to his brother. 3 or 5 rounds, doesn't matter. Rory is ready for anything Nick can do. Nick is about as easy a match as it gets for Rory. Nick only deserves to face Rory if Rory is guaranteed a title shot for beating Nick. Likely though, Nick wants nothing to with this fight. Nick's ego can't handle being whooped on by a 25 year old who owned his brother.

Love how almost everyone picking nick has a Diaz related av or name, lol.

Rory wins this pretty easily. Not really sure how anyone thinks otherwise. When has Nick ever beaten someone of Rory's caliber?

I absolutely hate The Never Ending Story.

Not surprised, there wouldn't be much of a payday for this fight. I don't think it could even be main event of a card.

Rory by whatever he wants. Probably throw him around like he did Nick's younger brother.

I think Nick and GSP looked less than their best in that fight, but I just don't think Rory can handle Nick's punches. Rory could win that fight no doubt, I just don't think he'd look anywhere near as good as GSP either way.

This is a fight where i would be confident on putting money on Diaz.

I usually don't come out strongly in favor of matchups, but i think Diaz absolutely smashes Rory. His striking and bjj is alot better. Rory hesitates, Diaz doesn't. I'd love to see this fight

I don't see Rory ragdolling Nick like he did to Nate. I think Diaz has the better standup and the better ground game. Rory has the wrestling advantage, but I don't think the gap is big enough for him to Fitch him. Nick finishes him in a 5 round fight.
