Lot of picks for Nate by sub, that surprises me. I'd acknowledge Diaz might have an edge in BJJ but enough to sub Miller? I don't see it. I see the usual pattern of Diaz winning a couple fights against strikers and looking really good and then losing another decision here to a wrestler. Miller's wrestling credentials aren't amazing but neither is Diaz's TDD.

If either fighter stops the other, I'll eat my moustache.

Diaz via split.

If this was a 3 rounder I'd pick Miller without batting an eyelid. As it is... Still Miller, but with far less certainty.

This fight kind of upsets me a little. I want Diaz to win because I'm a bigger fan of his and I think that he is a more interesting match up for Henderson or Edgar. They both can probably use their wrestling to control him, but on the feet, with his length and boxing, he could pose problems against either fighter. Both have expressed a desire to stand lately so maybe they would exchange with Diaz. Miller on the other hand has already lost to both, and in my opinion will lose in the stand up and on the ground. It doesn't sound like a fight I could get excited for. I'm sure Miller won't get a fight against the champion if he beats Diaz, but the possibility of him knocking Diaz out of contender ship and bringing himself closer kind of drops a little enthusiasm for me regarding the lightweight division. That will probably happen too if he can keep Diaz on his back. Am I the only one who doesn't want to see Miller vs. Edgar/Henderson 2 for the title in the near future? Not at least until Miller shows something that is evidence that he has a great chance of making the fight go differently.

Hopefully Diaz can stop the take down and pick Miller apart on the feet. Considering it's 5 rounds, he could have a solid chance to win this fight.

I may as well make my prediction here as well, What I see happening is they start off in the first on the feet with Diaz establishing a clear advantage standing which leads Miler to start looking for a TD late in the first, he gets it but because of Diaz being active in the guard is unable to do enough to win back the round. Round 1 Diaz. In the second, third and fourth I expect Miller to play it a little safer and go to the ground were he controls Diaz while looking for a finish but is unable to put Nate away. Behind on the scorecards and with Miller fatigued from trying hard for the finish I expect Diaz to turn it on and come dangerously close to finishing the fight but now quite able to put Miller away. It will be a good competitive bout but I expect Miller to come out ahead on all 3 judges score cards at 48-47.

Uphill battle for Jim Miller here. I love both guys but I'm always backing Jim. Can't wait to see how it turns out. People saying Jim will grind it out with his wrestling are crazy. He's literally never done that.
