It doesn't matter if it's just pure hype, he's in SF and only a good wrestler with sub defense will beat him. So he's safe and highly active in SF. Which means a lot of points. And Paul Daley won't be the guy in Sf to dethrone Nick. Nick has insane skill on the ground and would get Daley down and sub him, not to mention he has a huge height advantage over Daley, which Diaz uses very well. The only guy at WW in SF with a chance against Diaz imo is Tyron Woodley, not sure what his sub D is like though.
Wrestler's aren't the only ones!
Paul Daley's striking will be way too much for Diaz too handle. Daley actually throws them with some kind of power unlike Nick.
Nick's BJJ is probably even more overrated then he himself. If he get's him down however it could be interesting.. but he definitely will not submit him just like that. People said the same thing when he faced KJ Noons.
I would say KO for Daley in the second round!
A good striker is his kryptonite.. you don't need a great one. A good one!
