Well they're deffinitely not meant to come out of TUF as contenders. The best of the show get the privelege of competing in the UFC as possible up-and-comers. Will the winner of TUF 5 ever be the LW champ? I'd be hesistant to guess. Probably not, you never know though. A few years from now can they be high quality competition in the division? I think that's a possibility.

Nate might. I see him as a young Nick who has tons of potential and is very hard to stop on the ground. If he betters his stand up, he should be OK. Manny is just a lay-n-pray specialist. He couldn't finish a fighter, let alone finish a sentence. It was sad to see him just lay on a far better fighter and eek out a very lame win. Maybe if 'Friends' comes back or there'a movie, he could be Joey Tribiani's double (he'd have to do wear 8" lifts though)

=D

Manny trains with a top welterweight, Karo, and Karo says, "Don't F*** with the family." Manny will do fine.

nate diaz will get owned by every single fighter u mentioned at the top of the page. manny with some time and experience could evetually hang with some cause of his wrestling. nate got thrown around by a overhyped cory hill who never had a pro fight and isnt good at all at this time.

I think Diaz will be able to hang with the guys at the B level for now. I can't see him competing with guys like Sherk, Penn, Stevenson, and Franca right now. But I think he'd do good against Stout, Garcia, Black, and Thomas.

Tavares vs Diaz would be epic. 100% ground game baby.

Who would have ever though Stevenson would walk right through the 155s? Now he's top 5 and on pace to get a title shot within the next year (in my opinion).



TEAM LORD:
1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah

man...Black would DOMINATE Nate. Just because he lost to Tavares doesn't make him bad. Black is 22-3, and ive seen some of his fights, he is REALLY good.

Tavares vs Diaz would not be epic, Tavares would submit him in under 2 minutes.

Stevenson didn't walk through anyone good, his biggest win was over a coke-addict.

Wait wait wait..

Did you look into your magic ball and see that Black and Tavares destroyed Diaz?

Oh wait. We aren't entitled to our own OPINION on here anymore I suppose?

My bad man, I forgot that you are the almighty god of MMA and the fighters go into fights knowing whose going to win.

****, you're brilliant bud.
