I can agree with all these. The only one I am the fairly certain of is Kosheck, but who knows. Koschek will be fired up after being disrespected at the weigh-ins. He is bigger and he will crush Pierce.
Nelson looks fitter, but his endurance has been suspect.
Condit is by far the best opponent Diaz has seen in a long time. Last fight, he faced a different, less hungry, and smaller B.J. Penn. He was able to wear him down with his size advantage. Daley, Noons and Santos are all good but are not elite welterweights. I think Diaz will take it, but Condit has a good chance.
