Please see above for my opinion
This actually should be a better fight. Honestly the Diaz vs GSP fight had the potential to be a yawner considering Nick's performance against top wrestlers. Penn should make this a real standup war. Prior to Edgar boxing Penn's ears off I would have put BJ as a solid favorite to win it but now I think this is a much more closely matched fight and I wouldn't be suprised if Nick's awkward punching style and chin couldn't pull out a win. Dana might figure BJ will win and it gets Nick out of his hair for a while but if Diaz wins and particularly if he finishes BJ you have to figure he is right back in the title picture.

You just don't understand the definition of a crazy matchup do you?
It could have only meant one of two things, either Benn was fighting Diaz, or else an opponent you would never expect. And that would obviously mean a fighter outside of his weightclass.
Seeing as Hendo moved up to heavyweight to knock out Fedor and BJ Penn has also fought in multiple weight classes, including even fighting Lyoto Machida, a fighter outside his weight class was the only other option to a shock fight with Diaz.
So I listed all the possible options and was right, he is fighting Diaz.
As Hendo moved up to knock out Fedor and Kenny Florian moved down to dominate Diego Nunes, Guida or Ben Henderson fighting BJ is not ridiculous at all. Would be great matchups and you may very well see those fights in the future.
People are not a fixed weight, they go up and down all the time.
I was expecting Marquardt or a catchweight vs a top lightweight (Pettis, Jim Miller, Cerrone, Guillard, etc.), but Diaz is a great match for Penn.
Me and Dana laugh at your foolish picks!
Oh yeah BJ is will beat Diaz.
Carnt believe Dana has pitched these two against each other
Two of my favourite fighters in MMA against each other, this will be one brutal stand up show of boxing, and if it does go to the ground ya got two of the best BJJ practitioners in the game. Can not wait for this, Diaz gets the slight edge due to size for me, but ya can never right off BJ, especially after his showing against Matt Hughes who of course is a fully fledged welterweight.
50/50 fight, cannot pick a winner, and really not sure who I want to win
I can't fucking believe NO ONE HAS COMMENTED ON MY GENIUS YOUTUBE LINK TO THE HUNTER FROM JURASSIC PARK GETTING EATEN AND SAYING "CLEVER GIRL".
I SWEAR I WASTE MY GENIUS ON THE LOT OF YOU !
