10. Nick Diaz: Diaz’s reign as the Strikeforce welterweight champion is over, with Diaz having relinquished the belt in order to face Georges St. Pierre in the UFC. It was the best and most logical career choice for Diaz, who had no true opponents remaining in Strikeforce. No disrespect is intended towards Tyron Woodley, who will be a perfectly serviceable welterweight some day. But nobody – Diaz included – wants to see the Stockton fireball’s talents and determination wasted on fighting guys like Woodley.
