He was the SF champion, coming off a huge win streak...
He lost a close fight to Condit... many thought he actually won...

More deserving than Hendricks? no, but Diaz's saleability will only help him get a shot somewhere down the line.

If the Anderson fight is made... No WW deserves a shot more than Hendricks, but Anderson does...
