I am actually leaning towards Nate here. I think he has a pretty good style to beat Miller.

I think he's got a bad style, sure he's better on the feet but he doesn't have excellent TDD and Jim has excellent sub defense. Jim can grind a decision here i believe. They are both involved in multibets of mine though.

I think Jimmy takes this by decision. I've said before I don't think theres a LW in MMA that can sub Nate, i'm interested if Miller goes for takedowns or keeps it standing. I doubt either will sub the other, but I think the deciding factor will be wrestling and cagework which favors Miller obviously.

If Miller can't consistently take Nate down and keep him down while staying out of trouble while on the ground, Nate takes it. I think Nate will dominate every second this fight is on the feet. Miller needs to push Nate against the cage, work the clinch and takedowns.

Western MMA rules favor Miller. Won't be shocked if either guy wins. Diaz is one of the most durable fighters in the division, if not in the entire organization. There is no way Miller knocks him out or submits him.

Maynard and Father Ben have shown that the way to beat Miller is to outmuscle him, something Diaz won't be able to do, but you never know...

I just think it might look similar to DHK VS Nate

I like Nate for this one. Miller will no doubt try to smother him but I dont think he's as good at smothering as the previous smotherers

Nate will pick him off and Jim will have a busted face and lose a decision

I'm just hoping they don't put either of these guys in with whoever the champion ends up being because they will get demolished. My gut says Nate subs him somehow.
