    Barboza has looked vulnerable when boxers can get in his face, could see this going either way.

    Barboza gets floored by a stiff jab.

    Barboza has shown poor boxing defense time and time again. Of course Nate cant defend low kicks. Interesting match up. I think Nate wears him down and breaks him like Tony did

    Besides the obvious Diaz kryptonite, which is let kicks, I can see Barboza timing a devastating HK on slow prodding Nate.

    I felt bad for my boy Nate when RDA was putting leg wood on him. Thought he'd be on disability after that fight - Barboza would put him on it.

    Y'all saw how melenez barboza looked? Imagine a slower longer target

    Only Connie fans trying to hype nate as a top 5 winner to buff the jarbonies resume could think he has a chance.

    You're right Nate would probably fuck Barboza up pretty good, while showing him proper respect in between rounds [​IMG]

    Nate won't be able to walk for weeks after the fight. That lead leg will be ripe for the picking.

    When McGregor lost to Nate, I knew McGregor wasn't the real deal. If he was, he would have watched Henderson vs Diaz, and executed a similar game plan.

    I think Barbosa is smart enough to wreck that heavy lead leg, and if Nate tries to adjust, it is going to mess up his entire way of fighting.

    People picking Nate is just hilarious. I see Barboza doesn´t get enough credit here. He improved a lot and his last loss was against Ferguson when he took the fight on short notice. And this "Barboza´s boxing is terrible" doesn´t make any sense at all, I´d like to see some videos or gifs of this so called "terrible boxing". Just because he´s a specialist in kicks doesn´t mean he can´t boxe. He´s a MT champ that does it all on the feet. And please, spare of the MMAth saying that Diaz beat Johnson that beat Barboza. Johnson was winning and decided to get into a sloppy exchange with Nate. Barboza doesn´t do that and Nate can´t do the Johnson / Ferguson type of pressure, he just walks forward like a zombie, he´d be a target practice for Barboza's kicks.

    Nate cant beat a top 5 except Geathje. Geathje can beat everyone except Tony and Barboza. Barboza can beat everyone buy Tony and Khabib. Khabib can beat everyone but Geathje. Styes make fghts and Barboza is a horrible style match-up for Nate second only to Khabib.

    Problem is we can speculate on threads about Nate Diaz vs. x. The sad part is he ain't fighting anyone unless it's Conor Mcgregor on the contract. So what's the point of it all really.

    Youre fucking delusional. At no point was Johnson beating Nate.

    Also lol at Johnson putting more pressure on fighters than Nate does.

    All 3 delusional judges scored 29-28.
    14 delusional media members scored 29-28. Only 4 "experts" like you scored it 30-27

    I'm not endorsing MMAth, but Johnson handled Barboza and Nate handled Johnson. Aside from spamming leg kicks, Barboza might have trouble with Nate.
