    Nick can't beat elite wrestlers, and Hughes was the elite of the elite.

    I'd pick old man Hughes against any Nick Diaz. Forget prime Hughes.

    Hughes would execute Diaz.

    Similar to a Glover/Maldonaldo esque beatdown.

    Total domination by Hughes. At least Serra had the power to pull off his insane upset, Diaz does not.

    No goddammit. Nick Diaz would box his ears off, confuse him with little punches. GPS arm barred him. You tellin me Diaz couldn't sub him. Cornbread farm boy my ass, he never had to run around the block, crack heads lookin for cigarette butts on the ground. People gettin robbed. Iowa is like Mayberry, the Andy Grittith town, not the sub-forum TMZ chat room.

    Prime Hughes was strong like an ox with a good top game, amazing grappler. I have him via UD

    I like Diaz better than Hughes, but Hughes is an all-time great, while Diaz has only been top five at best, plus he has some issues with wrestlers. Likely, Hughes would take him down and control most of that fight between them. Maybe even far out of his prime he could do that to Diaz, that's how bad of a match up this is.
