    Diaz, cuz he can handle more punishment, and has better hands than cerrone if Conor remains in boxing range.

    Well .. neither really, but I think Nate has the better mental game, while Cerrone has the better technical tools.

    At the end of the day I want the one who is most likely to actually beat Conor ...

    Oh wait, Conor turned down Khabib. :eek:

    Diaz. But I doubt he could pass the drug test on this short of notice.

    The first spinning kick or left to the liver received by Cerrone would be the end.

    I'd rather see Diaz in terms of how entertaining it would be. Cowboy would be the better fight.

    Diaz, his chin is great and the shit talking would genuinely be entertaining.

    Probably Cerrone since they already have some history.

    It looks like it's going to be Nate Diaz. His strength and conditioning coach said they got the fight.
