I would give him an introductory fight with Pyle, I don't wanna rain on a man's parade but Nate has Kenny Florian syndrome where he just completely shits the bed when the lights are on bright, coming in with these cockamamie game plans that are designed to conserve victory, I normally don't have a problem with it but those two just really mess up when they fight that way. Props to Tarec though, he landed vicious kicks which no doubt hampered Nate but I'd start him off slow.

Pyle, Kampmann, and then a guy like Fitch. His TDD looked really sharp against Nate but a guy like Fitch is a totally different animal.

That would be a terrible "start him off slow fight". Some people aren't as high on Silva as I may be. But he gave Fitch all he could handle at the beginning of that fight. He is a good striker with very good BJJ. His kryptonite will be wrestlers who can out-work him. Saff is a kickboxer with solid TDD and solid BJJ.

Why start him off vs a guy with little name recognition, but very dangerous on the feet...a place Saff likes to keep it?

I think Saff should get a decent guy. Why would Melendez get a auto shot, DC get Mir, Rockhold maybe a title shot but Saff get a non top 10 guy? He just beat a top 5-7 WW.

I would give him Kampmann. It would be an excellent fight as well.
