I see things very differently, but I may be wrong. It's frustrating to have to wait, but time will tell. I've been through the action of Diaz frame by frame of his last few fights. And I'm seeing some very nice flicking the elbow up to block punches, and rolling of his head when he gets hit. And being very good at not telegraphing his punches. can't wait to see him boxing
