    I think Jake is jealous.

    So McGriddly did punch Nate's fist. I thought he slapped it. I would give someone a fine for that. Anything that could have possibly caused an injury that'd prevent the fight from happening deserves a fine. ...Man, maybe I should be president too, you guys.

    How can you not be a fan of Nate Diaz.
    I am glad he's getting paid.
    Hope Nate out works Conor and finishes him late.

    I am also a big Conor fan, just have been a bigger Diaz fan alot longer.

    Just reread several pages of this and a few other threads and I am getting a real sense of how people love to rewrite history to suit arguments why they like or dislike a guy.

    I actually like McGregor. Think he's a beast of a fighter. But for these folks to act like, and then state that what he's doing is unheard of or trailblazing or defying odds is just plain horseshit.

    He's moving up two weight classes to fight a guy that walks around at generally the same weight as he does.

    He's not even moving up to face a champion (not now), or a former champion, or even a guy that was literally on the doorstep of a title shot. So let's stop acting like he he moved up and decided to pick a fight with the biggest baddest dude in the yard.

    I love what he's doing. I love the swagger. I love that he's doing it all in the face and actually somewhat disrespectfully toward Dana White. I think its fantastic. But its not new. It's just being brought to you buy FS1 and Youtube.

    I'm fine with all the huggers enjoying the ride. Hell its a fun ride. But you don't have to rewrite the past to make this guy's present seem like greatness. That will come in time. The greats built it over time. You're all trying to thrust a decade of greatness and hardwork on to a guy that's truly only been on the scene for about 20 months now.

    There are reports now, unofficial though, that Conor injured Nate's hand when he punched it.

    You're entitled to your opinion. It can be a shitty one, but you're still entitled.

    The reason they cut is so they don't have to fight other people who cut. So again, if not cutting weight as advantage, they would stop cutting and fight those guys that are.

    Sooo its better for him to cut weight....

    It already did happen..soooo yes?

    That's fine, maybe as a fighter he feels better at 170. But its still a disadvantage fighting up or he wouldn't be cutting

    Read again. He comes in to the weight cut 10lbs over. He gradually loses weight during camp. That makes your argument void.

    I'm not arguing if a fighter looks/feels better not cutting weight. I'd say that's pretty obvious. What I'm arguing is not cutting weight is an advantage. Again, if it was so much of an advantage, more people would be doing it.


    So for argument, lets say 4 people? Out of those 4, how many aren't cutting weight? And to be clear, not getting weight and fighting at your walk around weight is a lot different than getting on steroids and moving up (Overeem)[/QUOTE][/QUOTE]

    Nate took the fight on short notice. He normally cuts. So which one is moving up to 170 for an advantage?
    --- Post Added -- Mar 4, 2016, ---
    Sure he moved up and had some success. But apparently, just moving up didn't have the advantages he thought because he moved back down as well.

    UFC brass picked Nate as a likely win for McPaddy. I hope 209 spoils the party.

    I'm asking if you are willing to do a name bet for 2 years.

    To be fair, there's at least a 30% chance Micky ends up in the clink at some point in the next two years.

    Biggest LOLZ ever if the prefight doctor calls the fight due to swelling on Nate's hand while being taped.

    Nate gets his "show" money and doesn't have to fight. Diaz Bros win again!

    If the same Nate shows up like he did against Johnson, I could see him winning. My only problem is how many leg kicks is he gonna eat before he starts checking them.
