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.

I think it's most similar to Nate vs. Rory or Nick vs. any wrestler he's faced in the UFC.
