because even though he won yesterday he looked vulnerable as hell and had more holes in his defense than swiss cheese.

Top ten? I'd say most definitely. Not sure how high I'd rank him as yet.

Yes. Like it or not, Diaz has not been tested by the type of talent the UFC WW division has. Until he is, I am not going to forgive the guy for his past losses. Because I'm not convinced he can cope with the elite MMA wrestlers in the WW division.

I'd like to point out that a wrestler has never dominated Diaz. He has only lost close decisions to them.

Nobody said dominated , he just cannot wrestle , therefore good wrestlers stand a very good chance of beating Diaz

If he fought GSP of Fitch, they would dominate him.

Kos tends to fight stupid sometimes. But yes, if he chose to ground him out, he'd do it.

I really don't concern myself with P4P. One thing is for sure... He keeps getting better and better and I love watching his fights.
