yeah a fight with him and huerta would be great..

maybe huerta would be too much for him though..

OR

Guida, but Guida's pace will be too fast and would eventually break him..

who knows, either fight sounds good to me.

Shogun is my homeboy.

Nate really needs to work his striking. His Jitz is on point, if he improved his boxing or MT, he'd be alot more dangerous.

If your talking about Nick then your crazy, but if your talking about Nate I agree. Would be a good fight, close.

I really like Nate. What you see is what you get.

In terms of his fighting, its just a matter of if he can keep submitting guys as he moves up the chain.

Right now he probably would lose out to the top5 - but ppl improve at different rates and he has age on his side. So only time will tell how far he can get.

Dude's only 22 or something and he's already pretty damn good. He's only gonna keep getting better. I think in the next few years he's not only gonna fill out more and probably jump to 170 but also get a lot better with his striking. He's already tough as hell and has great jitz, and that's only gotta get better, which is kinda scary. He's got potential to be #1 in the world one day. I don't like his personality at all most of the time (seems to flip flop between a hardass with a lisp and a mature intelligent guy with a lisp).

Hopefully hith lithp improoth ath much ath I think hith thkills are gonna improve in the nektht few yearth.

#1 at LW WL2FU? I mean there are so many great young LW's both in the UFC and in the world you really think Nate will be the number 1 LW with his lack of wrestling.

No just saying he's got all the potential. You don't really NEED wrestling to be the best in your wieght class, especially when you are badass off your back. Look at Anderson Silva. And Nate still got like 6-8 years before he hits his prime.

I think Diaz has a good chance at becoming a top 5 LW but he has to work on throwing harder punches. His stand up isn't even bad, it just looks like they are more of a distraction for the opponent rather than doing any damage.
