    Gangster vs gangster. Great boxing, more power, better speed, better defense. Do you think Nate would win if they ever fight?

    It's weird with the Diaz brothers. So often have I thought to myself "Diaz is a far inferior striker here" but they so often manage to outbox supposedly superior strikers.

    As ever, I expect Masvidal to have more success in the striking, but if Nate takes control of the striking exchanges it wouldn't be the first time he's proven me wrong.

    I'd favor Nate, and the sportsbooks likely would too.

    This because nobody understand the pressure they put on and how hard it is to sustain that pace throughout entire fights. This combined with their superior experience, excellent boxing, stamina, jujitsu and iron chins...makes the Diaz brothers two of the best in the business.

    Also shertarders often overlook them because of their very misleading records. Nate Diaz moved up one full weight class and took on some of the best in the world at an early age. Fighers today dont take these kind of risks until very late un their careers.

    Nate has better activity, better cardio, and better on the ground. Jorge is a better technical striker and has more power. I'd slightly favor Nate.

    I think the poll thread speaks volumes. I just checked again and it's 109 Masvidal 108 Nate. I voted Nate, but my mind set was if someone pointed a gun to my head and forced me to bet. It's a matchup I haven't been more excited for in awhile. Cowboy vs Gaethje level as far as recent fights go.

    I think Masvidal would be too much for Nate.

    Great chin, great cardio, great focus- wont get punked.

    Also more power and speed in his strikes, better wrestling and very good def BJJ.

    I think Nate wouldnt be able to do much tbh

    Nate is much bigger than Masvidal I just took a pic with mas at 241 and he’s not a very big guy. Nate will have 3-4 inches and a huge reAch on him

    I don't know... Nate is a wildcard. Hard to predict his fight.

    Don't think so. Masvidal might win but hardly anyone destroys Diaz. If you're fighting that motherfucker you'll know that you've been in a fight goddammit. That's why I love those dudes. Never an easy fight.

    I'd take Nate. Masvidal is a very inconsistent fighter, so is Nate don't get me wrong but I think Nate's pressure could get to Masvidal. Masvidal won't get dragged into a brawl though, interesting one.

    I would think according to sherdog experts Jorge destroys conor and conor can hang with nate and dropped him 3 times and actually won whether fans agree or not.. so going by their expert analysis then yes Jorge destroys nate too.. right ?

    Masvidal finishes him. Masvidal has head movement . When you throw that much volume u are prone to a counter ( aka the Amir khan syndrome ).Conor didn’t have the power and wrestling to finish him. Mas will Rock him and ground and pound him out . Not only that he will Hand fight . Not to knock Pettis but his performance was terrible .
