Dan still cheats. Nate is just a moron. Simple as that.
I can see Nate winning this fight though, if he survives the first
At the very least there are varying levels of cheating and Nate coming in with super hulk levels is far worse then Hendo coming in with young man levels. Atleast his levels were fitting for his species. Nate came in like he was part of the Super Soldiers program at S.H.I.E.L.D.
