Normally I think I would give Diaz a slight edge but that edge would be based on the fact he has the perfect fill in for Josh with Gilbert being in his camp thing is that Gilbert is likely not all that involved in his camp. Thompson meanwhile works in a camp full of phenomenal wresters (Diaz kryptonite) and he also works in a camp were the guys are usually very good as far as there submission defense goes. Thomson also has not been finished in 9 years and that was the only time, he has never been submitted.
Honstly its funny more people are picking Melendez over Bendo than Josh over Nate despite the fact I still think Josh beat Gilbert.

I have learned to not pick against Nate, so Nate Diaz.

Thomson should win rather easily.

Nate is likely the more skilled but he isn't as well rounded and has bigger holes in his game. The Diaz plan is simple you need to be able to make it about what they do bad instead of what they do good.

I'm shocked how undervalued Josh is the guy is likely the most underrated talent at 155.

Diaz should win, I believe he's the better fighter but Thomson is no pushover & it's a good matchup.
