It's against the cage which would be the problem, when Diaz gets over confident and might catch one he doesnt see coming as the only thing thats on his mind is "punch punch body punch punch".

But with Diaz and GSP, I still think that if there is ANYONE you cant count out, it's Diaz. He finds a way to win these things. I remember it being split on wether or not he'd beat BJ, or if Nate would beat Miller (and most said he wouldnt, let alone Cerrone). On paper, I agree it would be a ridiculously hard night for him, but when it comes down to it if you're going to have anyone as a complete no-win underdog coming into the fight, you're going to want it to be Diaz.

I think it's most similar to Nate vs. Rory or Nick vs. any wrestler he's faced in the UFC.

I don't think it's fair to compair either of them then to what they are now. Both have massive improvements in their boxing that it's hard for a wrestler to get the front foot and control, because they get battered trying to step in. Rory has only really been able to use his boxing to keep his distance in his last few fights, and Nick to me beats every WW not called Condit or GSP quite convincingly, including any wrestlers you want. Nick was an up and comer in his old UFC days, and since then he went through his entire Strikeforce career, when he really came into his own. Nate's only just came into his own over his last few fights, so I think maybe after his Bendo fight you can reference his style in comparrison.
