    Idk to me it just feels like he's here for the money this time and to just fuck around ala Nick vs Anderson... Especially with him weighing around 190-200 right now according to the conference call yesterday? What do you guys think? I just really don't feel like he's all there for this one

    I haven't spent much time with Nate recently, to be honest.

    He's making money, being respected, and getting more comfortable with media. It's still awkward, but he's happier than he's ever been.

    I think the chip that resided on his shoulder for so long has been pocketed, for the time being.

    He might weigh 190-200 but if you've seen his recent pics, he is in great shape

    Have the Diaz bros ever taken anything seriously? (In MMA)

    Money and playing around with opponents is what they love.

    He is a possible rubber match from retirement.

    When I asked him how seriously he was taking the rematch, he said, "Fuck it, yo. Why should I? I'm making bank and it ain't for his shitty belt, so..."

    It's in the book
    The only time I haven't seen Nate focused was when he had camp problems or showed up injured. Right now he seems to be doing his best ever and after making a million+ he's not going to have camp problems. He looks to be in great shape as well and he knows Conor is still a legit threat. I see nothing to indicate he's not taking things seriously this time.

    He's gonna cruise through the fight, probably lose to a decision. He wants that third fight so he can retire. 209 - represent.

    People said the same for the first fight. People even said he had mentally given up before the fight. You dont know shit.

    I think the Diaz brothers are the type of people who hate losing so I am pretty sure he will be fine and win easily.
