Diaz will get TKO'ed. The Diaz brother always talk shit and call out bigger fighters. Nate will pay the price this time

He is moving up in weight class while Te Huna is moving down, meaning that Nate is going to be pretty undersized. Add in the fact that Nate's been on a losing streak while on TRT, and now has to be off TRT, and the man is in serious trouble. Slap on the home field advantage and I think I can kiss my $20 goodbye.
Nate's a better fighter than Te Huna will ever be. Nate's on record saying that the cut to WW made him lethargic & sluggish (He wasn't a small MW). The TRT thing is 50/50 - Chances are the fighters still take it with the inferior MMA testing.

It's a close call because Nate's on the slide but he's a far more talented fighter than Te Huna will ever be.

I don't think nate's chin is that bad. He got layed out by ellenberger and Lombard, 2 guys who could knock out a horse.

Nate was a very big MW. I never understood the drop down. Its not like he was getting worked at 185, and I thought the okami fight could've gone either way.

Lombard ko'd him twice in one fight... Add that
