Something VERY satisfying about pretty boy Thompson beating the hell out of Nate Diaz.


Strikeforce guys, man.

Pettis, Maynard, and Bendo would all squash him. Dos Anjos might as well. I'd like to see him fight Cowboy or J-Lau next.

He doesn't need to fight them to get there though. wins over nate and the Millers and Cerrones would catapult him there.

But yes, Bendo and them would most likely eat him alive.

Nate needs to change camps IMO I think he's gotten all he's could from there.

Gotta say, watching a Diaz get stopped almost makes up for Mein losing.

D. Cerrone | R. Souza | F. Werdum | R. MacDonald | M. McDonald | D. Maia | J. Mein | C. Condit
M. Coenen | S. Kaufman | A. Davis

Agreed. Unfortunately, I think loyalty is holding him and his career back.

It is unlikely that he beats Miller. Haven't you seen the Crusher and Healy fights? I like the guy but his wrestling is not good at all and this division has a pretty good number of guys who are big to enormous for it who are significantly better grapplers than him in the top ten.

That and trying to be like his brother when he has far more potential.

I have to agree with Osmium a little here. You can never really judge someone's UFC potential when their first fight was against a really bad wrestler. People change so much fighting wrestlers and there are SO many of them in the UFC. You just have to acknowledge it was a good performance that means little to his potential of making a title run.

premature stoppage.. what is this towel throwing business?

im not sure what to think, he was intelligently covering up and changing positions to defend himself the entire time... not even close to being out

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.
