Maybe it's just cause I'm a fan, but I think he would. Hendricks doesnt use his angles and land an out of nowhere shot. Thats a bit left hand which cranks right on the target, sort of Hendo style. Diaz can pretty much take the best from anyone when he's expecting it. In the centre of the cage, I see Diaz making a fool of Hendricks' power. It's against the cage which would be the problem, when Diaz gets over confident and might catch one he doesnt see coming as the only thing thats on his mind is "punch punch body punch punch".

But with Diaz and GSP, I still think that if there is ANYONE you cant count out, it's Diaz. He finds a way to win these things. I remember it being split on wether or not he'd beat BJ, or if Nate would beat Miller (and most said he wouldnt, let alone Cerrone). On paper, I agree it would be a ridiculously hard night for him, but when it comes down to it if you're going to have anyone as a complete no-win underdog coming into the fight, you're going to want it to be Diaz.
