I love how people say "it would go like Rory Nate".
That is such a lazy prediction. Nate has excelled since then, Ceasar said he has improved the most he ever seen anyone improve in 1 year. Nate is a 155er his whole career and didn't belong at 170, where as Nick has fought most all his career at 170.
If anyone wants to talk about "hype" lets talk about Rory's undeserved hype. He has beat no one. His best win may be Nate Diaz a 155er with no wrestling. Then he calls out Penn from retirement. Then he calls out the other Diaz because he thinks he can make a name off him and he can do the same as he did to his brother. He does nothing elite but somehow he is the future of MMA.
Rory is a pansy.
He's excelled since because he's in the right weight class now, Rory is a monster and I think there's a lot of guys he'd man handle easily, Nick being one of them.
I'd rather see Stun-Gun/Diaz or Koscheck/Diaz though.
