I absolutely loathe N. Diaz, and I don't have him ranked anywhere near the top 10 in the UFC LW division. I think his next fight should be against Guida. If he can beat Guida then by all means start lining him up with top 10 LW's. The only thing he's shown is that his chin is decent and he has an excellent submission game. I can think of a dozen UFC LW's that I think would take him apart. I'd actually like to see him rematch with Emerson, Maynard and Gamburyan as I think those three fighters have all advanced quite a bit and would probably beat him at this point. He doesn't suck by any stretch, I just don't think he is a top flight LW or even close to it.

Mac can strike. If anything his striking is vastly underrated. Alot of fighters take him down because of his quick hands.
He was beating Guida in the standup. But a given is that Guida's specialty isn't standup. Here's Mac a while back against Nakayama. About a minute into the video, they'll stand.........

Agreed just because a guy doesn't always use his standup doesn't mean he doesn't have it. Mac can strike. I can't stand him, but he's a well rounded fighter.

I'm not saying he is a bad striker just not anything special at all.

That's where our opinions differ bbjd7. I think his striking is getting even better and I can see him outworking alot of LWs in the striking game.

He has solid wins and has stepped up his competition in his last couple of fights.

Looking back before he got in TUF he had his fight against Franca in the WEC and he was winning that fight up until getting caught in the armbar.

Then he goes through TUF and subs Emerson, Hill, and Maynard. Then at the TUF finale he fights Gamburyan and loses the first round but then Manny gets hurt so Nate wins.

Then he goes on to sub Assuncao and Robinson.

Next up was Pellegrino, Nate gets beat up in the first and then catches the triangle in the second.

Fights Neer and does pretty good getting a split decision though I thought he won it 29-28.

He has good subs, great cardio, can take a beating, improving standup (though not powerful), subpar wrestling, and good throws.

Where do you see Nate, how does he stack up against other LW's and who should be next for Nate?
I say he get's ktfo'd really badly and pretty easily by any top 5 lw you put him against, maybe any top 10.

I really like Nate Diaz, but I see him getting by quite a few fighters in the division. He's a very entertaining fighter to watch though, and I love his smooth jits.




What a stud

Both brothers come across as uneducated, ghetto a**holes. Some like that, I personally don't.

However, they both put on a hell of a show and that makes them ok in my book.

Every village has its idiot. The US had Dubya, MMA has the Diaz bros
