    I think if nate comes out like he did against cerrone and gomi then he’s probably gonna win. I’m not gonna count miller out though, it’s gonna be exciting. I’m rooting for diaz, I think he’s got more tools on the ground and standing up than miller. If diaz gets it I’d like to see him face henderson i think that would be a badass fight!

  2. JP says:

    What about Pettis? Poor dude keeps getting screwed.

    • Nuitari X says:

      lol, yeah i guess you are right cause i like showtime and even I forgot about him just now. Maybe if miller loses he will get pettis and by that time diaz and bendo could have fought and should bendo win it would set up the long awaited rematch between him and pettis.

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      If Pettis had beaten Guida he would have had the title shot before Bendo. Pettis screwed himself, fitching or no fitching from Guida.

    • Mike McMack says:

      The winner will probably fight Pettis for the No. 1 contender spot. I think Pettis matches up well with both fighters so it should be interesting if thats the direction the UFC is going with the LW division. Frankie and all his rematches are clogging up 155, hope he loses then moves down in weight.

    diaz wont fight edgar, plus, edgar prolly won’t beat smooth. smooth is too big and cuts hella weight.
    so, it’ll be diaz taking the belt from smooth. both are big dudes who could fight at 170, but the competition is stacked in the welterweight division, and cutting is part of the game unfortunately. most of the welterweights walk around huge, and also cut big weight.

  4. ganjaneerUSMC says:

    Yea idk about this, rock on for diaz, but with all this competition and amazing fighters, how can you set up a fight where one guy is fighting for a title shot and the other is fighting to get closer to a title fight? Damn matchmaker, if ones fighting for a title shot then so should the other, that’s why its called a title contender fight, ufc is full of some chodes, ill tell you what.

  5. Me says:

    Diaz will lose to Edgar & Maynard , & will dominate every other lightweight including Bendo

  6. Mike Diaz says:

    Finally, a Diaz Bros with a shot at the strap, I hope Miller doesn’t put on his running shoes and proclaims it to be a “dog fight!” Diaz Bros and TEAM PENN!!!!!!!

  7. Kayce says:

    Diaz is garbage, I don’t see this fight as a relevant fight. Neither of these guys stand a chance against Henderson.

  8. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    I’m still shocked Nate beat Cerrone… Where the heck is Cerrone?

  9. American says:

    I think Diaz reach is gonna be a problem for Miller.

  10. John M says:

    God damnit I hope Miller beats Diaz. I think he is completely capable of doing it!

  11. maurice says:

    i think diaz and pettis are the most dangerous lw’s at the moment. diaz is pretty much a nightmare match up for frankie. bendo vs nate will be good, probably be the first time we see bendo NOT slip out of a guillotine.

  12. stephen Riddle says:

    Coming from the biggest diaz bro. Fan i want pettis vs diaz!!!

  13. KIDD433 says:

    Barbosa and Pettis are more deserving than Diaz.Barbosa and Pettis should fight,and winner should get title shot.Pettis was robbed already,He was supposed to get a chance to unify WEC UFC TITLE!!! And Barbosas been tearing shit up!

  14. Brend0magic says:

    Diaz if the fight is a finish, Miller if it goes to decision.

  15. T.Daddy says:

    This will be a great fight if miller don’t turn it into a takedown fest

  16. maurice says:

    lol at the dude who said guida owned pettis. no guida outwrestled pettis, and did everything in his power to keep pettis from “fighting.”

  17. Chartmonster says:

    Want to see Diaz lose so I don’t lose money, but seeing Nate take a beating by Benson is priceless! Jim Miller FTW!

  18. The natural says:

    Petis got owned by clay and Stephen showed how bad he is why does anybody care bout pettis he sucks hd shld fight 145 Shld b fighting Aldo next

    • Ken says:

      You must be smoking crack mixed with pcp, cause only a crackhead would say something like that…

      Anyway, Diaz should fight Pettis…. Period!!!
