    Nate looked great but that midget maynard looked terrible.

    • Big Tuna

      I agree Maynard is by no means a measuring stick but Diaz took him out quickly and should be moved into the top 4 and fight bendo

      • shakejunt

        do we really need to see that again? plenty of other match-ups available.

  • knockout67

    Do not get to carried away Diaz…You got blitzed by Josh Thompson last time out..Manhandled by R. MacDonald at welterweight..Benson Henderson one sided you,you did not win a single minute of that scrap..You are ok against the contenders,but come up short against the elite..

    • Triggerman99

      I always laugh when people bring up the McDonald fight, as if that has any bearing whatsoever on where Diaz currently stands at LW. Congratulations on proving what an uninformed hater you are.

      • earlsimmons

        It doesnt have a bearing on where he stands at LW but where he stands as a fighter. The guy is bad. Get over it broseph.

        • Triggerman99

          Yeah, totally. Getting badly outwrestled by a top-5-ranked fighter in a higher weight class than you proves that you’re a bad fighter. Nice logic there.

  • Derek Lemaster

    Nate looked good, but he just cant compete with the top dogs. Im more concerned with how thick tongued he is now. He’s always had that lisp, but now he’s showing some bad speech signs like Meldrick Taylor after the Chavez fight. And how the hell can he be broke? He’s made good money over the last few years!

  • XIRand0mHeroIX

    He sounds like Walt Jr. from Breaking Bad

    • Booker T

      Ii is pretty comical. Kind of hard to understand at times. Probably all the pot him and his brother smoke.

    • Gary Fredericks

      That’s pretty darn funny right there!

  • james j

    Dana cringes when Nate talks

  • Nate improved alot since the thompson fight, dont think it would be the same this time round, well done Nate, and Rory is more interested in being on covers of magazines now dont think that fight would be the same also. But he shouldnt move to ww…

  • David Huenecke

    Did anyone decipher what he said in the cage past “these guys are funny”? Sounded like a bunch of drunken gibberish. Not saying he was drunk, but, its like he said a whole buncha stuff in one big sentence. I couldnt put it back together.

    • dgs

      I sadly think, he’s showing early signs of brain damage.

      • George Burkhardt

        yeah i think the same, hes in another world when he talks, kinda sad

  • Kenny Powers

    I think Nate would beat Thomson if they fought again. He was eating Josh up with his boxing, then he got cut and couldn’t see with all that blood. That head kick was solid but Nate was defending himself enough to not get stopped. I doubt he could take Pettis, but I’d like to see him fight maybe Dos Anjos, Khabib or even TJ Grant once he gets healthy.
