Nate/Manny.....will they honestly be able to hang with the UFC LW's???

The lightweight division... The most stacked division in the UFC by FAR (IMO)

Just take a quick gander at this...

Sherk, Franca, Huerta, Garcia, Griffin, Tavares, Edgar, Guida, Black, Fisher, Florian, Thomas.

Do you honestly ever see either of these two (Manny, Nate) even being middle'of'the'pack contenders? Let alone champs? I really cant see it.

Maybe its just me, i dunno. But i think Nate or Manny will get crushed in the UFC LW divison.

If the UFC ever makes a featherweight division, I think Manny could be successful, but short of that he will never be a contender. Nate has to stop having these fights where he only wins because of a submission after being owned for the first half. It can't always work.

I think Nate can Manny will have to drop to featherweight. Nate says that he wasn't getting good training at TUF and is more comfortable training at home.

Yeah you could tell how much more comfortable he looked during that practice with BJ. I think if BJ had been Nate's coach he would easily destroy Manny, but now I'm not so sure.

Yeah read this. http://www.mmaforum.com/ufc-discussi...interview.html

I don't expect to see Nate get destroyed in the lightweight division.
