Diaz, while skilled and entertaining, is also wildly overrated. Will be a straight mugging for 5 rounds or however many Diaz lasts for.

Hendricks should wait it out and fight the winner (and pray it isn't close enough to get an auto-rematch).

I don't know if he's ready to take on a wrestler like GSP.

good point

should be a good fight but obviously its a pretty good matchup for GSP

I had no problem with Diaz getting the title shot after coming over from Strikeforce or beating Penn. After beating Penn, I thought he wholeheartedly deserved it.

As far as him getting this title shot after a loss and coming off a suspension, it's ridiculous and I'm starting to lose respect for the UFC because of it. Chael Sonnen gets a title shot in a weight class he hasn't fought at in years, and is coming off of a loss. Frankie Edgar is getting a title shot in a different weight class after TWO losses. And now Diaz getting a shot after losing? At least Rua/Gustaf will determine a legitimate contender on Saturday.

Oh well. I get to see Diaz fail again. And I love to see him fail and throw a fit.

I really wanted Diaz to win a fight and then take on GSP, oh well.

I think this may actually be more of GSPs way of getting the break he said he wanted to take. After fighting Condit he said he wanted to take a little time off since he spent so long on his recovery. Calling out Diaz who can't fight until early next year is a good way of getting that time.

Open your eyes then. He has happened several times throughout the history of MMA.

Diaz is my second favorite fighter to watch (right behind Silva) but I'd way rather watch a guy that has a chance at winning in Hendricks than a guy that will get laid on for 5 rounds then retire again.

Not sure what this means.

But he tosses everyone around. Even if he is scared to face the #1 P4P fighter he is still the #2 and dominates that class. He would toss Rory, Hendricks, Marquardt, and Maia around. So whats the difference.

He wants to fight Diaz. And Diaz at least has skills to match him in more than 1 area. Where Hendricks matches him in no area. Including cardio.
