I mean it's obvious that the UFC has not been giving Nate the chances that he should be getting. How many times has Gamburyan(sp?) fought on a PPV compared to Nate and Nate won the show. This is a pretty good test for Nate and will show us how he handles a war because Guida is known for fighting in some battles. I think its a good fight.
Agreed, on all accounts. Diaz is my favorite fighter in the LW class - I'm glad he is getting this tough fight. That being said, he wins this for the reasons you stated - no need to re-state all your points. Thanks.
