| | Nick Diaz VS Thiago Alves
I'm sure a poll of this has been done before but for some reason everytime I try to search for a thread, it brings me to an error page, so I apoligize for not being able to find it if it has been posted.
I was thinking about this match up while making a post earlier and was wondering what anyone's thoughts on it were.
I, personally, would love to see this fight and hope it happens in the future.
Both guys are threatening on the feet and contain KO power. While Alves is the better overall striker, Diaz's boxing and reach has proven to become very effective. Both have solid chins. I would definitely give the edge to Nick on the ground but Alves has some pretty good TDD against guys who aren't top knotch grinders, as does Diaz.
It's a tough fight to call, IMO. Who do you pick and why?
