You're wrong then, because neither man has the single-shot power to knock the other out. Diaz is an accumulation puncher and smaller/lighter man, and Leben isn't as strong a puncher as Paul Daley who couldn't KO Diaz depite landing flush and big on Nick.
Diaz would dominate Leben because he is simply a better, more technical, more skilled, more versatile fighter. On the feet, he puts his punches together far better and (imo) has a better chin. On the ground, Diaz owns Leben with ease.
Two different levels/classes of fighter here.
