    If Nate Diaz can't sell a fight outside McGregor...than why have all of these other LWs constantly been trying to get a fight with him?

    Nate Diaz isn't that hard to beat if you follow a gameplan that almost any legit high level MMA fighter with some decent grappling should be able to do. If you beat Nate, you beat the guy who beat Conor McGregor, and that gives you status and can possibly set you up against Conor McGregor thus making big bucks.

    ****EDIT***

    And by beat, I don't mean KO/TKO/SUBMIT Diaz, highly unlikely, by beat I mean get a boring decision win.

    Not a hater buy chiming in..

    Nate built a huge buzz off conor. I don't think he's worth quite what he's asking but he'd still sell moderately. That alone for another contender would be huge.

    If Nate can sell a fight on his own merit why is he holding out for Conor?

    He could probably headline a card and that card would do very well but not well enough to justify what Nate's reported asking price is.

    Why do people call Nate out? He has name value, but he's very beatable. It's a good risk to reward ratio. Pretty simple equation, actually.

    And what does "selling a fight" have to do with it? Are you suggesting that the guys calling Nate out get ppv points? If not, then it seems irrelevant whether or not Nate can sell a fight.

    Not a Nate hater but the answer is simple: It's their easiest path to a fight with Conor.

    Secondary motivation is he's the second biggest name at LW, even though it's a huge drop off from Conor.

    People who hate Conor, mistake anyone who roots for Conor as a "insert fighting he's going up against" Hater.

    What makes you think he won the second? It was a close fight for sure. And out of the 2 fights, Diaz looks better because he actually has a finish over Conor in the first. But how do you feel Diaz won the second fight?

    The first round was a straight ass whooping, Conor was in the matrix, dodging every shot and countering like a high level striker. That's a 10-8 round for sure, in boxing, that would have been a 10-7. We have a very similar second round, obviously a 10-9 for Conor at the very least. Diaz gets the 3rd. The fourth is pretty even. And the 5th is pretty even as well. Worst case scenario for Conor, a draw. Diaz pushed the pace, but he didn't really land much on Conor, and when he did, they weren't big shots. Speaking about the second fight of course.
