Damn! is the only word I'm feeling right now.
No Hieron anytime soon, Riggs or Karo rematches don't matter anymore and Daley's a walkthrough.
This makes me sad because he's soooo close to becoming part of the p4p discussion given his amazing skillset, but he's just not fighting anywhere near the quality of challengers he needs to be at this juncture in his career. I honestly don't believe this is him ducking people of quality or anything, but more less that he's so baked all the time that he's taking whatever is easiest and least complicated for his way of life.
Kinda feel like they're gonna let Diaz crush cans and whatnot for a couple of years and then make it a really huge deal the next time he becomes a free agent, given that he'll probably have gone undefeated in that timeframe and then herald him as the next big challenger for GSP, akin to what Shields is right now.
Diaz should be fighting top flight challengers and he's simply not. Shame.
