Why Nick Diaz is overrated

I'm concerned with the growing hype behind Nick Diaz. Some people are even going as far as to say that he is in the top 10 p4p in the welterweight division. This simply isn't true. Nick Diaz is overrated, because he hasn't fought anyone respectable. Look at his last opponent, Cyborg Stantos, his record was 18-13 going into the Nick Diaz fight. Sure Nick Diaz is on a 9 fight win streak, but look at who he's beaten. K.J. Noons is probably the most formidable of his opponents, and even he hasn't beaten anyone. Until Nick Diaz either moves to the UFC or someone in the top 10 p4p in the ww division moves to strikeforce, Nick will be destined to only be in the top 20.

  5. I agree with some of the stuff you say. Nick diaz has had an easy group of fights recently, but he is not without talent. he's a fairly solid all around fighter getting a little bit too much attention, i think.
