I'd take Nate to win. Diego's takedown abilities have eroded over the years; either that or people have just become better at TDD in general, but I don't see him being able to get Nate down at will. On the feet, Diaz is a better boxer and just as tough. Diaz by UD all day. Just a better fighter than Diego, who seems to have regressed into a face-first brawler, and not even a particularly great one.

Laughable comment of the thread

I don't see this fight making sense right now.
He's a big name though and Gil doesn't have as many fans as he deserves. I saw one of Gil's pride Bushido fights and he smashed the guy for 3 rounds. The Sanchez fight definitely won me over though

Believe me, as one of Diego's biggest fans, Diego is a beast on the mat.

In relation to the fight, Diego will win via UD. He will take Diaz down repeatedly and will outposition and outgrapple Diaz as he did with Nick Diaz.

Diego UD.
Man, he couldn't even outgrapple Gomi. And Nate is very good with his submissions.

The stand up would look like this, except you should add 5 inches to Gil's arms to emulate it correctly.

i don't think it would be an "easy" victory. diego's a fast starter; nate can be a slow starter.

diego has better wrestling and really awesome bjj, but he's got a top dominant style whereas nate is good off his back.

yes nate has the better boxing.

great fight, i see nate taking a UD, but not "easy" as a fight.

and i wouldn't be remotely surprised to see diego win.
