Nate vs Kampmann, Alves, Swick, Matt Brown, Jordan Mein,Saffiedine. I'd watch all of those.

If Gil loses on Saturday that means their entire crew will have fought for the UFC belt and lost. Nick, Nate, Jake and now Gil.

Also, Nate is WAY too small to go up to 170. Bendo looked huge against him. He should bulk for a year and then go up.

Nate can hang with any striker at LW or WW, but a good wrestler at either class can handle him. So it really doesn't matter which class he's at, he can't avoid wrestlers at either.

Nate will get outmuscled by better wrestlers. This is NOT gonna go well for Nate.

Very bad move for Nate, he's not big enough for 170 & will get outmuscled by most fighters there. Some 170 guys are huge. I think 145 would suit him better, less stacked division and more suitable for his size. He needs to do some serious strength-training if he's going to succeed at 170.

Tough spot for Nate... 155 is his natural weight and he should really wait to see the outcome of Bendo/Meledez (Bendo is taking that more than likely).

170 is too much for Nate, he's going to get ragdolled by the top 10 guys, he may pick up a few hard fought wins over fringe top 10-15... he just doesn't have the size or strength to compete with guys cutting from 190-200 in that division.

Can Nate make 145 and fight well? He already seems pretty skinny at 155.

This.

He would be invisible when standing sideways at 145.
