Wow. What a finish! thought that since nate's un-ko'able it would be a decision but i was wrong.





- TJ Dillashaw - Gegard Mousasi - Vitor Belfort - Michael Johnson - Alistair Overeem -

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
Yea he change the position with the face right in Josh's fist ) was a good stoppage ... he wasn't out cuz Diaz bros can't get knockout... but still

I think it was a good stoppage, Nate wasn't defending at all. He would have eventually got KO'ed if it was allowed to continue.

Nate has a hard head. He took that shot full on and it wobbled him. I'm pretty sure most fighters would have gotten cleanly KOed.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

I might have underestimated Josh, the guy is good. Feel kind of bad for Nate. The guy has so much potential but I feel like he's being held back by his camp. He needs to learn how to kick or wrestle & if he's going to 170 he needs some serious musclemass, imagine how small Diaz would look compared to a guy like Marquardt & some off thee other huge WWs.

Regarding Thompson I think he will have trouble with the top wrestlers but he could get some really good wins as well. Don't see him ever becoming champion tho.

Not sure if you're seriously asking but Diaz's corner threw in the white towel in the cage right before it was stopped, meaning they wanted the fight stopped..
