I'm usually all for catchweight fights like this but Diaz needs to win one more fight before this could happen. You can;t give him a fight with the best fighter in the world coming off of a loss.

Would be a great five round fight, but Diaz should be a huge dog. He has the better BJJ, but I don't see him boxing Anderson up like he has done to so many. I said the same of BJ too though. Great fight, exciting.

Diaz is a fool....he just wants the payday that would go along with a title fight against the p4p best fighter on the planet...and he knows that he is in line for an undercard fight against a gatekeeper for $40k instead of a 6 figure payout that would come with a Silva fight...Dana should call a press conference, and if Diaz shows up, Dana should step up to the mic, look at Diaz and just laugh before turning his back and walking away, leaving Diaz sitting there like a fool with no fight....public embarassment...

5 rounds? Silva would kill him in the first

I would tune in. Most guys who fought Silva where scared. Diaz is not scared.

Don't be scared homie.

Silva is wayyy bigger than Diaz, right? Should be uncompetitive with Jim-logic.

I see this fight as another one where Anderson dances around and lands enough to win without either taking much damage.. but it'll never happen because Diaz refuses to show up to events.

Diaz is an excellent fighter... at WW.

I don't see him having any realistic chance against an elite Middleweight with a huge reach advantage. That's Silva.

Silva either destroys Diaz in the 1st Round, or toys with him like he did Maia.

Either way, it's a lopsided victory for Silva.
