    Just a curious question from a hardcore casual.

    Nick Diaz has destroyed Nick Diaz in the last 5 years. I don’t think Nate could have done it.

    I think Nate could probably beat Cyborg and Noons.

    Impossible question to answer. Nate in 2015 could probably best most fighters Bick beat. But in 2009, in Japan, that Nate didn’t exist

    Nick isn't a current fighter. Nick hasn't beaten anybody since BJ Penn 8 years ago. He is not really a part of the sport anymore. Nate got run out of the sport losing to Benson, Josh thomson and RDA. He couldn't compete with the best back then. Conor punched his meal ticket. Good for him, he deserved a big payday.

    No. You said “any point in his career”. I’m pretty sure he was motivated a few minutes here and there during this time frame.

    Well, for one, I don't think Conor would ever in his wildest dreams see the end of a five round fight with Nick like he did with Nate.

    Nick's bigger, has a better chin, better body work, and more pressure. I just can't see Conor getting out of that, knowing all the problems Nate gave him.

    Are we counting Karo?

    Probably Shamrock. Lawler.
    Nick wouldn't lose to McGregor unless something unusual happened. Don't think the Dong would beat him either. Didn't Nate lose to Guida? That's basically the Shrek fight minus the unexpected Ultra combo - so Nick would beat him as long as he worked on his TDD like he did for Shrek. Nick probably would've gotten Hermes.

    Thomson would be a tough one for anybody - although I don't think he could severely hurt Nick like he did Nate.

    Nick was a better fighter, but Nate closed the gap. I would like to see them fight each other.
