His standup wasn't that good to be honest. His ground game, however, was good. I like Nate, though, and feel he'll end up in the UFC regardless if he wins or not. He's not as good as big brother, but he'd be another good addition to a great division.

Seconded. His standup wasn't doing any severe damage. It keep Emerson on his toes, that's about it.

His ground game though? WOW....was it slick. I agree with your post 100% brownpimpster.

Neither Nick or Nate have alot of power. They both have always relied on technical skills and like to smother the other man with lots of small shots. He is just like Nick but younger and more skilled than Nick was at that age. So Nate being so good at his age means he may do better than his older bro someday

I agree that his standup needs work but like it's been said, he's 21 and can learn and grow. His ground game looked real good I'll agree. I don't think he'll win the show but he will go far and end up in UFC anyway. Not alot of striking power yet, it's something he can work on too. I know someone said Nick Diaz didn't have much power but I remember him catching Robbie Lawler with a good punch and knockin him out.

To all who said hes standup was bad..

What fight were u watching...he didnt let MR. Kickboxer do a damn thing!!! HE showed to fear or hesitation to engage him, he was as confident as his brother....yeah he looks kind of funny cos hes so tall and skinny but the guy did great...

I dont know why you guys dont like him, hes just a manly man...he doesnt like guys runnign arorund wearing dumb ass gay g strings and hes there to beat some ass, not make friends or suck each other's d*cks....

I like him, hes a stand up guy, speaks his mind and is sure about him self...sounds like a champ mentality to me...

I don't like him but he's good also I can't stand his attitude. Also can't stand his accent talks like Mike Tyson, but props trains at a Gracie academy.
