As for the fight, Diaz looked bad from the start, he dropped his guard completely trying to chase Josh around, and seemed to start to underestimate him because of that. It looked like the Condit gameplan, except Josh landed some huge kicks that actually did damage.

Nate is too skilled a fighter to not have proper defence. It's just stupid to eat head kicks.
Melvin guillard hurt nate bad too and he came back to sub him, and while it was not as bad as thomsons combo it's till a valid point, nates gotta be properly out or no hands defending for him to be counted out.

Doesn't have to be like that, we get plenty of player/coach interviews in other televised sports. Even on FOX.

He'll be back, but he needs to make adjustments. I'd love for him to leave that camp. They're doing him no favours. The things he can learn there, he already knows in spades.

Nate went on a losing streak, and then went on a winning streak that earned him a title shot. And there's little shame in losing to Bendo and Thomson (not sure why so many wrote him off to begin with). We've not see the last of Nate Diaz.

He can break top 5 easily.

I have a feeling Nate's heart and confidence just weren't there tonight. Not saying that's an excuse for his loss because his defense was absolutely horrid and that's essentially what cost him the fight, but after taking such a beating from Bendo I have to wonder where his head is at.

Good win for Thomson. I like him, and he's sexy as hell. I'd like to see him fight Jim Miller next.

Nates hands weren't defending him for the last dozen strikes or so...

He was crawling around waiting for the fight to be stopped...

I like Thompson, one off my favorite fighters from Strikeforce and he is extra good but it looks that Diaz little underestimate him.

I should clarify. I'm not saying Thompson is bad of that he can't break top 5. I just want to see more than this win. Not that people were saying that he is the best or anything. Just an opinion.

I think nate should quit though, I think the bendo fight showed that he doesn't really want it or is lacking motivation these days.
