Nate Diaz


#1

Whens the UFC gonna give this guy someone to fuckin wreck him already?

I cant stand watching that scrawny, goofy talking/looking bastard getting these submissions given to him by guys like peligrino or guillard. I cant wait to see someone put him out cold for the first time, in fact i hope he keeps winning so they give him BJ and i get to see the first death in the cage.

Other than that, super exciting card tonight, i loved the quarry fight, the guys not that quick or technically superior but he leaves it all in the cage.


#2

I wanted to see him get KO'd too. Guillard was doing well and even dropped him but then got careless. He's got a good chin just like his brother though.


#3

I love Diaz bros.


#4

WAR 209


#5

"fuck gasper gomez and fuck the fucking diaz brothers!"


#6

what a pathetic thread


#7

i really like watching Nate fight....he can take some amazing hits, and his BJJ is damn good.

but, he is a cocky bastard.


#8

i won't claim to know shit about technical aspects of mma but WTF is he trying to flex?????????????!!!!!!!!


#9

aint no one gonna knock out nate or nick..


#10

the arms, that are attached to the fists, that would beat your face in.


#11

No kidding. A guy with sick bjj that can also take a punch. I guess he sucks.

Personally, I think he's the lightweight version of Big Nog. He can take a few shots while waiting for you to make a mistake. He is going to have better competition in the lightweight div, but will still beat a lot of people. He is a solid mid-tier guy that will always have a shot at submission of the night.

I can't stand his attitude but I do like watching him fight.


#12

he's a good fighter, unlike his brother with that sissy pawing jab, but a higher ranking LW would hand him his ass. Thats why they wont put him in the cage with one.


#13

I would like to see him get a rematch with Pellegrino. Kurt clearly won the first round, and got a horrible position when he tried to slam him. Nate capitalized but I am pretty sure Kurt has what it takes to win. If Kurt gets another Win here, they may meet again in the near future.


#14

This.

Its not that i dont think hes a good fighter (i dont even know if id like to call him good) i just think his success has been due to fighting poor competition, or fighters that have underperformed against him and made stupid mistakes (guillard, and especially pelligrino)

I dont like him as a person though i do enjoy watching him fight, i cant wait to see him get absolutely smashed by high level competition if the UFC ever puts him in there with them.


#15

I think he should get re-match fight against Hermes Franca(whether he wins or loses tomorrow)next. Franca submitted him back in '06.


#16

I like watching this guy fight. He's weird but he pulls it off. but agreed I'd like to see him fight some high level competition.


#17

Maynard, Griffin, Sherk, Edgar, Florian and of course BJ

All guys i think would absolutely smash him (BJs kind of a no brainer) but i dont think the UFC will put him against anytime soon.


#18

hahahahah he already subbed Maynard.

Nate Diaz Vs Gray Maynard (From TUF 5)

But can Nate do it again is the question. Maynard is on a roll right now and is improving in huge amounts. A rematch would be awesome at this point.
