    Who would love to see this fight? Who do you think would win? And is there any chance Nate could be convinced to accept this bout? I mean, he was close to fighting Poirier last year before Poirier's phantom injury...

    This is one that every Just Bleed fanatic should be hoping for. I know it's hard to get excited for a possible Diaz bout when he clearly isn't interested in fighting anymore unless it's McGregor, but still. It's fun to speculate...

    Nate's legs would be ruined inside of a round.

    Why do you hate Nate's legs so much?

    Nate vs a guy with multiple TKOs via leg kicks? Yeah nah. Nathan would not be able to stand after the first round

    Not sure why people continue to keep the Diaz brothers relevant. 2011 was a long time ago

    Gaethje lost to Poirier, Alvarez, and was on the brink of losing to Micheal Johnson. Nate would have a field dat with him.

    These Diaz haters are hilarious. Nate looked better than he ever has his last 3 fights. But he hasn't fought in a goood while. I bet he would look better in a return fight than Mctapper did vs Khabib, though. Especially considering how jacked he was while training for Poirier before Poirier backed out.

    No,

    That is a terrible fight. Gaethje would wreck the Diaz with his leg kicks, it's their kryptonite.

    Literally one of the worst stylistics fights for either Diaz bro.

    Basically.....this.

    Gaethje is a leg-wrecker.

    He has previous TKO victories due to destroying opponents legs. That's rare in MMA, and Nate Diaz has I believe shown susceptibility to this form of attack in previous fights. Plus Uncle Dana seems to really not want to pay Nate the sort of coin that Nate wants.

    So my thoughts are .... this particular fight has little chance of materializing.

    I want to see it just to watch Gaethje wreck his legs.

    Then he came back and KO'd James Vick and Edson Barboza within the first round...
