    Who takes it? Thompson is very good at keeping his range with his kicks, that could frustrate Diaz if he's not able to entice Thompson into mid-range exchanges or cut him off against the cage. Diaz can beat any welterweight in the division on any given day I think, but could he pull it all together against a fighter like Wonderboy?

    If Nick hated Carlos Condit's approach to victory against him, he would absolutely despise Wonderboy.

    And Wonderboy defeats Nick Diaz via TKO. God that hurt to type.

    One does not simply finish Nick Diaz. That's a pretty bold fucking statement.

    I agree that if Wonderboy gets on his bicycle Nick is in for a long ass night though.

    This is the fight to make

    Diaz isn't going to like fighting at Wonderboy's range. If he can back him against the cage though Wonderboy could be in trouble.

    Wonderboy UD imo

    Why is Nick vs anyone in the top 10 mentioned in the same sentence?
    Diaz is just not that good.

    Lol at Diaz taking that fight, never going to happen. If Wonderboy fights like he did last night he wins easily as Diaz has zero footwork.

    We've established that Nick doesn't like spinning shit.

    Nick doesn't fight people who kick, or throw spinning shit, or try to take him down, or avoid his guard, or break his rhythm, or dodge his punches.

    Those people are just pussies trying to win the fight rather than play rock-em sock-em robots.

    It’s good you think that.

    Maybe you should examine the facts. Nick Diaz has never beat a Top 10 WW. Sure he beat Daley who was ranked #9 at the time, but after that fight Daley was never again ranked in the Top 10. So was he really a Top 10 WW fighter? Remember, his ranking seemed to coincide with Dana trying to build up the UFC in the UK as a springboard to Europe.

    Other than Daley, Nick has never beat any Top 10 Ranked WW. Ever.

    Robbie Lawler isn't a top welterweight? Don't waste my time.
