Great sub by Nate, he looks to be a contender in the coming years.

He is one now IMO, he had some good fights outside the UFC as well. I think he's going to be hard to beat.

Nate showed good standup, excellent BJJ, hes a tough guy, only being 22 I believe as well. His only real weakness is his strength but he makes up for that with technique.

Although Nate showed he is good, I don't think he is a top contender quite yet. He will in a couple of years, but right now there are a lot of top tier guys out there in the LW division. I wanna see him go against a striker, and see how he does

Impressive sub though, was really well fought on both sides

I never really liked Nate before but have a lot more respect for his ground game now, some great jiu jitsu there and some grit standing, must admit the guy's for real

This was definitely my pick for fight of the night. I was jumping out of my seat when Leben won (Yeah, I'm a Leben fan, what of it?), but honestly this was a better fight. Nate showed such a cool range of MMA, and he really surprised me. I've always thought he was good, and was pulling for him to win the TUF, but I was blown away that he was muscling Junior up into the fence. That definitely impressed me.

My buddy was sitting beside me watching it, and he goes, "Man, this guy's (Nate) standup sucks!" Then, *WHAM* he drops Junior, "Umm, just kidding."

Seriously, the Diaz boys have some awkward looking standup but they can tack hard. Great fight by a great fighter, and I hope he continues to have cool showings like that.

Id like to see him fight joe next. As far as him being years away from a top contender, there is no reason he should not start fighting the top guys in the UFC IMO he would hold his own with any of them.
