BJ Penn has a better top game than Sean Sherk, Joe Riggs and Diego Sanchez and is the most recent fight to go off, so it makes sense to evaluate Diaz' bottom game from that fight.
BJ is a much better grappler than all of the fighters you listed and he had nothing for Diaz on the ground, that's my point.
Also, Sherk didn't out grapple Diaz in their fight, he was badly out grappled and actually out wrestled through the fight and won the fight through narrowly out boxing Diaz on the feet, lulz. How times change.
