    Honestly I think it's Nate. He's consistently fought better competition.

    I was posting to disagree, but, hard to. However, having GSP/Anderson/BJ/Condit/Gomi on your resume is hard to ignore.

    He beat a washed up Penn. Gomi was a great win. Lost to the other 3. Naming these 5 wasn't the best idea.

    Like I said, consistently. Nate has had

    Conor
    Michael Johnson
    RDA
    Gray Maynard
    Josh Thomson
    Benson Henderson
    Jim Miller
    Cowboy
    Gomi
    Rory
    DHK

    and that's only from 2011-2016. Nick was pissing and moaning for most of that time, sitting on the sidelines.

    I think they're about even, it's hard to say at this point.

    Nate had by far the stronger schedule and picked up more top wins. I also think he's shown more on the ground than Nick. Obviously this a matter of perception, realistically I would imagine their skill level is probably very close

    Nick. He and Nate are pretty much the same fighter except Nick is a bit better everywhere.

    put them both in their prime in a fight at 170lbs and Nick would win.

    with that said, Nate was just as good of a LW as nick was a WW, so I would say they're about the same at MMA as far as skill goes. Nick is just a bit stronger, and he has a bit more power in his hands.

    Both have the special skill that cannot be taught in a gym.

    To never quit in a fight…….Probably learned in their youth
