My opinion mate. Diaz would be more trouble to Anderson then he will be to GSP.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day...

A man with no standing defense against the single most accurate striker in the game who has rocked or dropped damn near everyone he has faced in the UFC? Diaz would die in that fight.

I disagree. I think Nick's style is perfect for Anderson. He would get lit up horribly. GSP at least has a stylistic advantage should size not become too much of an issue.

Silva is literally the worst matchup for Diaz in MMA.

Super accurate striker who is bigger, has longer reach, excellent chin & cardio. Diaz boxing would be nullified within a minute & he would probably suffer irreparable braindamage.

Worst beatdown in MMA-history atleast.

Not because Diaz is worse then alot of the fighters Silva has beaten, he is actually skillwise better than many of them. But he's also a very skinny WW who is very good at taking beatings, and happens to be the perfect stylistic match for Anderson. It would be horrible to watch IMO.

Diaz relies heavily on reach, chin and cardio to beat fighters, none of those would be a factor against Silva.

Comon guys. What Drowning Donkey wrote makes perfect sense. Where did he refer to fighting skills? He said "trouble" and Nick is always breaking records in this department.

Diaz vs. Silva would be an awsome fight. Worst beating ever? I doubt it, Marvin Eastman or Diego Sanchez take that title. It's not like Diaz could do any worse than Forrest Griffin or Bonnar both whom embarassed themselves, the fight would probably end like the Bonnar fight with a knee to the ribs.
