Normally I never would say this, but I mean it seems to me that Grey Maynard is no that great of a 155er, hell I would pick Faber or Mike Brown to beat him...
I thought Diaz won too but the first round was awfully close, could have gone to either fighter. I personally rather the fight be a draw since neither fighter really deserved to win.
Gray would easily decisioning both Faber and Brown with his superior wrestling and it's not like Faber/Brown have much better strikes than Gray. The reach advantage really affected Maynard and he was still able to slip a lot of punches or just catch them grazing, dude just didn't respect Diaz's power.
Interestingly, FM also had it a draw for 10-point score system but it gave Rd1 to Maynard and Rd3 to Diaz with Rd2 being a draw. They also gave Maynard the win with the holistic scoring.
