Nick Diaz is a 'favourable' match-up for no one. If Rory can get by Penn and Nick Diaz, then his hype and his name are more than merited. When did calling out tough, durable, and skilled opponents become something to scoff at? Heck, he didn't even call Diaz out. He was asked if he'd like to fight Nick, and he said 'yes'. I really don't get some of the reactions in this thread.
I also don't understand calling a professional fighter who has battered all of his opponents thus far a 'pansy'. This guy spent two rounds going toe-to-toe with Carlos Condit and getting the better of him on multiple occasions. Can anyone here make that claim?
