    What is Dustin’s path to victory against Nate ? Lol please enlighten me on what area he is significantly better than Nate Diaz in other than maybe punching power? (Which may not be worth much against Diaz’s chin)

    I'm concerned Nates chin is jacked from the Conor fights. He might get ko'd by Dustin for all we know.

    Diaz guna bring it though

    I'm still not sold the fights happening but Diaz is probably still the most under rated fighter out there owing to his record and him spending his whole career in the UFC. When Diaz is motivated, he is elite AF. If Dustin boxes with him, he loses, and Diaz already out boxed two guys that KO'd/outboxed Dustin in Conor and MJ

    Casuals keep daydreaming about Nate. Watch how Benson and Dos Anjos did it, this is how to do it. Take away that lead leg, counter punch, take him down. Even MJ outboxed him before he started getting lured in.

    Rasslin, Nate is the ultimate gatekeeper.

    So people are saying Dustins wrestling will be the deciding factor? I feel like his wrestling, while good, is not enough to control Diaz on the ground. People bring up Pettis, who's notoriously weak against wrestling, is a bad comparison to a strong grappler like Diaz.
    Dustins ego will force him into a standup fight with Diaz. Dustin's standup is ever improving and if a cool head is kept can defintely beat Diaz.

    I feel like this will all come down to which Version of Diaz shows up...the "fuck you, kill or be killed" Diaz...or "Here to cash a check" Diaz

    I see a decision.

    Dustin's striking has gotten more crisp and he has a soild wrestling game. He needs to be mentally focus and not let Diaz get in his head to bait him. Diaz is very durable and has a lot of heart but he is beatable.

    Poirier is the better boxer, better wrestler, better cardio, better kicks, better power, better speed. Is it enough?

    What is Nate better at? Better chin and better gatekeeper.

    1. They are both notoriously bad against pressure/grinding fighters(not just Pettis).
    2. Pettis has submitted grapplers that are better than Diaz.

    You sound like a guy who started believing in Diaz skillset during the lead up to Conor fights, as all the people who overrate Nate Diaz do.

    I already mentioned Diaz has the better chin. As for Dustin getting beat up every fight, not sure how this contributes anything to discussion when comparing Diaz and Poirier (Especially considering its pretty much the same for Diaz)

    Actually, Diaz gets beat up even more
