When it comes to Belfort he would be in real trouble. He likes taking too many shots to give shots and allowing Belfort to hit you is in the first chapter of "How to lose a fight in the First Round VIA KO 101." So Belfort puts Diaz away in the first round in rather violent fashion.
Ya, Vitor doesnt just hit hard, he has sick speed. He has good boxing as well.
I wouldnt say Diaz couldnt beat a top10 MW.
In fact Id love to see him fight bisping. He gives up a decent amount of size, but Bisping would most likely try and stand with him and lose. Not to mention if Mayhem was still in the top10 Diaz would beat him. And Maia as well. There is one of the few guys who outclasses nick on the ground, but his takedowns are not that good.
