    What do you think?

    On the one hand he's a pro athlete with a lot of core strength.

    On the other hand he's not exactly the most explosive guy out there.

    Nate is 300+ lbs in the cage, so I doubt he can do a backflip.

    He almost did a backwards rollover on one of those McGregor knockdowns if that counts?

    He can turn a prolific striker into a panic wrestler.

    A backflip isnt shit.. I can do aa backflip and I'm a lazy pothead.. I was into gymnastics when i was younger tho.. still doesn't mean anything, muscle memory

    Too answer your question, if he never practice or learned, no.

    No TS, but I'm sure that Conor can. Just look at how athletic that dude is!

    i would think 155 nate can do it but not the version that was 3x conor's size for the first fight (according to dana and conor)>

    either way doesn't matter, sage can do all sorts of flips but can't defend a submission and nate beat the goat

    He's been known to flip people off from his back.
