    I think Khabib would grapple rape Nick, and there's no way on Earth Nick's pulling off a sub on Khabib.

    P.S. You knew this thread was coming.

    In a five round fight? probably Nick Diaz but a three round fight would favor Khabib.

    Has Nick ever beat an accomplished mma wrestler?

    Khabib would just try to lay on him

    Nick via KO

    I agree. Make it a Fight Night main event and I'd pick Diaz. Can't see Khabib finishing him.

    At 170... Nick

    Nate at 155 though would get smashed by Khabib

    Adlan Amagov vs Nick at 170 would have been fun though

    He absolutely destroyed Drew Fickett, who later went on to choke out Josh Koscheck. Probably the best wrestler Nick ever beat.

    Nick does have one feather in his cap. Nobody else has KO'd Robbie Lawler clean.

    5 round fight would be fun for sure.. 5 round, I think Nick might be too big, it's tough to say. Kabib is amazing at what he does against guys his size. Jumping up with guys who wlak around 185-200 just from a straight leverage perspective he's at a significant disadvantage. Nates smaller than Nick, 5 rounds with Nick I think he'd get tired and Nicks wrestling defense is actually quite good. GSP held him down, but literally no1 since Karo back in 2004 has been able to keep Diaz on his back for very long at all. I think he grapples Nate, but I'd put my money on Nick in a 5 round
