Rory by domination. Diaz is the most second most over-hyped guy in the sport (right behind Overeem).

It's basically a toss-up. It is really hard to say how exactly good Rory Mac is right now, because he is improving at such a fast rate and he hasn't really fought a top WW in a while (deal with it BJ fans).

Rory might be able to out-muscle him, but Diaz poses serious problems wherever the fight goes. I guess if I had to pick it'd be Diaz.

Bingo, I agree with that part. Rory may have won the first 2 rounds, but they were definitely close and he was by no means dominating Nate up until those suplexes, and even then, like you pointed out, Nate wasn't exactly fazed or in trouble. A large Rory Macdonald should have rag dolled basically a lightweight much sooner. I find it funny when people say Rory dominated Nate Diaz when they fought as if he just threw him around the cage for three rounds. Some MMA fans memories are so short term, they can't even remember a fight as a whole.

Still, Rory did beat Nate and was the stronger guy easily, but let's stick to the facts.
