Yeah, I don't think Diaz would **** Daley but he certainly would defeat him soundly. Yes, Daley would get submitted if Diaz takes it to the ground. Also Diaz can take out Daley standing I think!

I disagree completely. The only guy able to submit Daley in the last 3 years was Jake Shields, and Jake has significantly better wrestling and Jiu Jitsu than Diaz. Sure it helps that they're in the same camp, but I don't see it helping much. As for Diaz taking Daley out standing, you've got to be joking. Paul Daley has never been taken out standing, he has a superb chin, and if Diaz stands with Semtex, he's getting KTFO. Martin Kampmann has far superior striking to Nick Diaz, and Daley destroyed him. It wouldn't be a contest on the feet.

I really doubt Mayhem is just looking to steal Diaz's shine. He can come to the UFC if he wants, which alone is 10 times more shine than anything to do with Strikeforce.

Not to mention one of them is a star on a MTV show. It's not about fame, it's about beating up someone who jumped you. Shields looked to Mayhem before Mayhem spoke. Don't get me wrong, we all know Mayhem was a goof for doing that, but anyone not named Diaz's camp wouldn't have brought the street mentality in and jump him.

If anything Diaz should take the fight since Miller is the biggest name he'll face in strikeforce.
Since there was no reply to this sweet post, and I am unable to improve upon it, I will quote it and say:

I agree 100%

Well when it comes to the Diaz brothers Dana is write. Those guys are still wild even though they were influenced by Bob Shamrock. As for Mayham and going to Strikeforce I'm not sure if he wants to go to the UFC, less ellaborate ring entrances!

uh, were the diaz bros really "influenced by bob shamrock"? I thought that was the Shamrock bros. The Diaz' were most influenced by Cesar Gracie, I'm not even sure they've met Bob Shamrock.

Bob Shamrock also helped steer the career of MMA star and Morada native Nick Diaz. About 10 years ago, Shamrock opened up a gym in Susanville called Shamrock 2000. Diaz, a high school dropout who had his share of struggles, found the gym and began to learn from Shamrock.

"He'd always watch me," Diaz said in a Strikeforce interview in 2009. "Bob was always really good to me, and he told me to keep going and continue what I'm doing, and he'd get me in the UFC when I turned 18."

Diaz, now 26, didn't stay with Shamrock long, finding Cesar Gracie and deciding he was better fit for the Brazilian jiu-jitsu style of fighting that has led him to a successful career.

Seems Diaz trained with Bob for a bit, but ultimately decided Cesar Gracie's gym would be a better place to learn his trade, I'd say it was a good decision all things considered.

hm,i had no idea. adds an interesting angle to his little mini-feud with Frank a couple of years back since Frank had his own feud with Bob and Ken as well.

Yeah, I don't quite get that family feud. But on an interesting note it's probably better that Diaz left the Shamrock gym. If he had stayed with Shamrock he would've been a totally different fighter!
