Nate Diaz did look good in that fight, but what kind of competition was that guy he was fighting? I don't think I have ever seen him fight before.

I don’t think anyone feels this guy was a top ten fighter for the weight class but he's not a complete To-ma-to can IMO.

Nate's record

Very impressive by Nate, really impressed with how technical and composed he was on the ground.

Huge amounts of potential in Nate...

Actually, I believe the guy had an inch of reach over Diaz even though he was shorter. Either that or the same reach.

They had the same reach 72" and Jr. was only 3 inches shorter so it wasn't that bad a match up. I was glad Nate won and showed off some ground skills while doing it, altho he did rock the guy with a shot.

Who has he beaten that makes you think he can hang with BJ Penn, Sean Sherk, Joe Daddy, and Roger Huerta?

From the looks of it, it seems like nate has the skills to hang with anybody, now what we need to find out about him is 1) whether he has a chin or not because he really never has been rocked. 2) whether he has a mental game or not. Because he is so young i find it hard to believe that he would be able to keep his composure if he was in there with the likes of BJ Penn.
