I think Diaz is going to submit melvin.Even though Melvin looked pretty good in his last fight, it can go either way.

I like this fight I bet the odds are going to be fantastic maybe even something like Maynard -115. If Huerta is favored and you are looking for me, I'll be the excited guy with shit in his pants.

I can't get any traction with this argument but I'll try again. DIAZ NEEDS TO MOVE UP IN WEIGHT. Sorry, I know for 99% of fighters the answer is to move down but not for Diaz and certainly not for the now defunct Corey Hill.

Diaz is not strong enough at 155. This was not a problem before Clay Guida showed everyone how to exploit it. Guillard is going to boot-stomp Diaz because of his strength. Yes, Joe Daddy guillotined Guillard in 19 sec. Is Guillard more experienced now? Who cares? Joe Daddy gets huge torque coz he's compact and Guillard could probably KO Diaz while in his guillotine.

Melvin showed patience in his last fight but I think he will take Diaz's back, move him up against the cage, hurt him with hooks until Diaz half-daze rolls only to get KO'd with GNP. If he catches Melvin in a submission, Melvin will pull out of it because the strength balance couldn't be less skewed in his favor.

Diaz needs to move up in weight so that he doesn't get manipulated to the embarassing degree we see at 155. Guida showed what to do and it is easy to do it.
Well we know someone's been watching Imagination Station.

I honestly think people overhype BJJ black belts, we've seen alot of this (especially in regards to wrestlers) the past couple years. The UFC does have some good BJJ bb's.....but lets be honest, most of them aint Gracie's lol

Im not downplaying their skills but c'mon....we all know Nate Diaz cant handle wrestlers and needs to gain some weight.

please stop hyping these BJJ "artists" against wrestlers, lol

word to Damien Maia

I sure hope Melvins been working on hi GG, thats the only thing he needs to be complete. Hes alot stronger than Nate and a better striker and wrestler, im gonna go with Guillard, even though I cant stand his cocky ass wanna be randalman attitude.

melvins cardio has never been good if nate can weather the initial onslaught and avoid the ko he'll be able to take him down at will and school him on the ground.

maynard huerta should def be the main event as far as star power but exitment wise guillard diaz is money

Diaz is better at everything except wrestling. Melvin gets ko'ed in the second.

Diaz has never shown any power in his hands, only way he'll win is by a choke. I see Guillard handing out alot of punishment, but Diaz can usually hang through it. Might be like the Guillard Neer fight, where Neer pulled off a sub late in the fight after taking alot of punishment.
