Nate Diaz Interview Post-fight

http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/dia...5-fights-19745

Excellent interview, he is very classy and it seems like his public speaking is getting better- discusses the fight with guillard, his opinion of his last few fights, and hit future plans in the UFC.

I think that his stand up was very sloppy in the first round against Guillard and if he fought guys like Maynard, Penn, and Sanchez he would just get rapped..

But his Jiu-Jitsu is top notch and he is very dangerous on the ground..

I agree. Guillard looked like Mayweather out there compared to Nate. He needs to be a little more orthodox early on I think. Nick has made that same crazy baiting style work for him but he usually breaks the guy down first with more standard striking.

No, he is coming off of loses to Stevenson and Guida and was losing the fight to Guillard till Guillard messed up. Top level fighters would make easy work of him imo.

Ok guys, just so you know, I didn't want to turn this into a debate about whether Nate is ready for top fivers. I titled it this because that's the title of the interview and one of the questions the interviewer asked Nate. I was trying to bring the interview to people. So if you're going to debate the topic, please at least watch the video also so I don't feel like this is failthread

Agreed, I don't think he would be able to stand there and thrown down with top contenders..

Meh a win over Guillard doesnt do anything imo. And not to mention he's got 2 losses previous to this. I still consider stevenson somewhere in the top 10, so untill he's able to beat joe then perhaps a top 3-5 would be deserving. As far as Bjj and other skills , i'd like for the ufc to pair him against Cole miller. Another lanky skinny fighter with good Bjj. Basically fighting a white non ghetto version of himself.

I wouldn't call Diaz "Ghetto" and his Jiu-Jitsu skill is as good as anyones in the lightweight division other than BJ..
