Sure Diaz had fought at MW before, but he's a small one. Silva is a guy who cuts from HW numbers to get to 185. Sure, GSP has good stand up, but how would he do against a Jon Jones or a JDS? Diaz has good boxing, but Silva is on another level.
My thought is once Silva gets your rhythm down no body is any better than avoiding strikes. Diaz is a great striker, Once Silva Decides he's studied Nick enough and starts his ducking and weaving than throws his jabs Nicks in trouble. If he can't avoid that it's all over except for the post fight crying
wouldnt even be a close/fair fight. Diaz would get stopped either late in the first or early in the second round. I cant believe this is even a discussion.
For example, I would say Diaz's boxing is a little better than BJ Penn's, but certainly not by enough to say that Diaz is at a different level. I would say that JDS' boxing is on a different level than all other HWs.
There is no exact definition as to what would put someone on another level versus someone else
Diaz just got outstruck by Condit and yet he is suppose to hold his won with a guy who is a far better striker then Silva. Really guys, really? I am not even a Silva fan and I am can say without a doubt he is the best striker in MMA and second place is a distant second place.
Dude, Iím a wrestler. Iím the best wrestler in MMA. Wrestling IS, was and always has been the most dominate form of mix martial art on the planet. Thatís all there is to it. We all know it, some people want to fight it, some people want doubt it but wresters rule the MMA world. -
