I didn't like how this was handled by the UFC. Dana said he spoke with GSP to see who he wanted next, and claimed to still have beef with Diaz, who is coming off a loss and suspension. This isn't his decision, Dana needs to nut up and be his boss, not his manager. Hendricks not getting this fight is a slap in his face, and everyone else up and coming in every other division in the UFC.
Back to your original point, I agree. Hendricks is also the more compelling fight. Diaz has an opportunity to catch GSP and swarm on him, or catch GSP in something off his back. Otherwise, I see Diaz being kept at a distance with kicks, and being repeatedly taken down, ground and pounded, and likely cut with a doctors stoppage late in the fight.
