    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.

    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
