    6 weeks to get ready for Tony Ferguson? Now question, will fight fans be upset at Nate skipping the line if this is in fact true?

    Why is George Takei taking Diaz's picture?

    Word is he's getting ready to fight a sexual harassment claim.

    Perhaps it's Tony vs Nate because Conor obviously isn't likely to be fighting again this year.

    Could it be against Woodley?

    I don't think so. What's Tyron going to do other than wrestle him? Tyron isn't going to land like Conor did.

    He doesn't need to, I don't think Diaz can have Woodleys power.

    On the plus side for Nate, Tyron's power shots will be hitting the opposite side of his head compared to Conor. This matchup seems bad bad bad for Nate. Tyron can ragdoll him like Rory did and his quick, explosive power punches are fight changing/ending. Respect Nate for stepping up but it is just not someone he stylistically will have success against.

    I don't think Tyron can hit him if Diaz actually boxes. I think Diaz would tune him up on their feet.

    I like watching Nate fight and he looked really good against Michael Johnson. But that was two years ago and I still can't get that RDA whooping out of my head from three years ago, even if he's got the win over Conor in their first bout.

    If they're giving TFerg a fight for late December, Eddie/Gaethje and Barboza/Khabib are both booked and Poirier just fought and I don't see them giving Iaquinta anything of this level, so I guess a Nate matchup with the hopes from UFC that he beats Tony and they can book Conor III for money and maybe less risk than a TFerg showdown, it'd make sense I suppose.

    At Tyron's size for a WW, given Nate's not-that-great TDD and history, I think that's quite a lot he'd be giving up in the GNP phase and would probably put Woodley in a position where he won't even look to strike on the feet and just bully Nate on the ground.

    I really wish it was Nick vs Tyron. That way the size isn’t an issue.

    Tyron is a lot bigger than Nate muscle wise.

    He certainly has the speed advantage. But like fed said, I think Woodley takes him down and pounds him into the canvas
