Nate Diaz hasn't won a single welterweight fight against a guy currently in the UFC, and his best win at that weight was against Marcus Davis. He's a great lightweight, not a good welterweight. Sorry, but you seem to be caught up in names rather than what these fighters actually do in these weight classes. Nate Diaz as a welterweight is not the same fighter who fought his way to the top of the lightweight division.

After BJ was announced as rorys' opponent:

Joe public: "this is a big step up for rory, the opponent he's been looking for. "

After he demolishes bj & makes him look like an amateur:

"he still needs to get a legit win over a name fighter."
Not me. I said right when this fight was announced that BJ was shot and this was a waste of time.

Sorry that I don't think beating BJ is a big deal, but I don't...at all.
