With the exception of GSP nobody had beaten Fitch in forever. Jon Fitch was arguably #2 in the division for like 3 years and Hendrix KOOTN him in 12 seconds. Hendrix has 3 KOOTN in his last 5 fights. Both Kamppman and Koscheck are top-tier fighters and he beat those three back to back to back.
Diaz has done a lot too, for sure. His most recent fights haven't been as good though. He has a close loss and then wins over Penn and the best strikers in StrikeForce. With the exception of Penn, I wouldn't favor anyone Nick Diaz ever faced over Fitch and Kos.
