    I’ve got Silva to win this one but if Diaz is a heavy underdog in the weeks leading up to the fight, I’ll put a few bucks on Diaz

      He will be the heavy underdog and don’t get me wrong Nick is an incredible fighter and can hang with the best of them but personally I don’t see a chance of him walking away with a victory over Silva.
