I think Diaz trashes Miller on the feet, Miller gets desperate and might take Nate down, but ultimately gets outpointed or even submitted.

Another fight I could see going either way. I expect a back and forth fight with both stand up and ground work. I think Miller will control a lot of the fight but with this bout being five rounds I predict Diaz will eventually take over in the later rounds and get the finish or maybe a decision.

Awesome card all around, all the fights are good match ups which I could see going either way.

This is incredibly difficult to pick a winner.

Diaz has him on the feet, but there's a glaring hole in his game.... in which Miller fits in like a glove (TD's).

I'm leaning towards Miller, but if the same Diaz shows up against Cowboy, Miller is in deep trouble.

Didn't realise this was 5 rounds.. Nate is gonna be awfully pesky in the Cardio rounds (we can't call them championship rounds for non title fights)

I have a feeling Jim Miller will get the decision while losing the fight. Basically Miller will be Guida in this fight. I hope I'm wrong though.

I agree.

I am a fan of both guys. And Jim Miller is in no way boring. But I think it would be in his best interest to make it more boring than usual. Him getting TDs and staying out of subs may be the story of the fight. Nate will be crafty as always, but TDs may be the difference here.

I think this fight has the potential to be a real barn burner. Both guys are tough as nails and like a proper fight. The ground battle could be a real war of attrition, and thus, the stand up could also end up in this fashion.

I hafta assume JM noticed the number of times Cerrone was able to sweep Diaz's legs.

The difference here will be Miller's willingness to follow Diaz to the mat.

I'm gonna say Miller, but I'm far from confident with that call.
