    Khabib just said in an interview on FuelTV that he wants Nate next. What do you guys think of that fight?

    I think it should be a good one.

    That's what I pictured when he asked for this fight. Nate has the tendency to get rag-dolled.

    And if Nate had a fight tonight that he won, you'd be saying Nate would "destroy" Khabib.

    Welcome to Sherdog, gents. I say "gents" and not "ladies and gents," because, well, because Sherdog.

    Nate Diaz usually loses by bigger/stronger wrestlers. It'd be an interesting fight, if Khabib won, I'd call for a title shot because stylistically its a BAD fight for Khabib. It'd show hes the real deal at 19-0

    well, no. I would say someone with great takedowns would toss Nate anyway. He has proven to be not so great with his takedown defense so I think he would get ragdolled against Khabib.

    i'd like to see it. give diaz a chance to redeem himself and khabib a chance to crack the upper echelon of the division.

    That would only be right if he completely dominated and finished Nate. Not sure if he could do both but Khabib looks legit.

    thats a huge step up in skill level for khabib.

    nate is argueably the 3rd best fighter in that division behind Gil and bendo.

    Give him a top 20 guy first before giving him a top 10.

    i think Varner or Wiman/Grant winner are better next steps but i give props to anyone who wants to fight Nate.

    Varner sounds about right. This kid is trying to run before he can walk. I thought Mohamed taught them to be patient.
