    If Nate would have went for Knockout instead of taunting Leon, he would have probably had the KO. He proved though that no one would beat him in a 6 rounder fight. Its a shame that the UFC doesnt make fights 6 round fights. I find it bullshit.

    He will also be the undisputed CTE pound for pound champ in a few years. His main strategy lately seems to take insane amounts of punishment and somehow squeeze a lucky punch or submission in.

    Nate's timing on that 1-2 is one of the most pleasing things to watch. This time it was actually a slap and a sneaky right hand, but my god

    Getting stopped due to cut isn't the same as getting stopped via TKO/KO.

    If you take off those rose-colored glasses, he looked pretty terrible.

    It is during a sanctioned fight. How is he going to be the champ inna 6 round fight if he gets stopped at the end of the 3rd?

    They made the UFC have rounds / time limit when the Diaz brothers were born...

    I think you should card yourself for double posting.

    I wasn't responding about the 6 round fight scenario, just pointing out losing via cut isn't the same as being stopped by TKO/KO. Yes you technically loss via stoppage, but it isn't the same when it's a doctor stoppage compared to stoppage from TKO/KO.

    That wouldn't be fair for their opponents, Diaz brothers would be undefeated with a combined record of 200-0

    That makes sense. I think as others were saying that if a fight was no time limit and only a real ko or sub finished the fight the Nate would be dangerous versus just about anyone in the lw or ww division.

    Diaz does not care about titles, he just wants to fight other so called bad asses and show how bad ass he is.

    He just showed everyone that Leon ain't no GSP, and gets no love for a reason
