    Fought almost exclusively not to get KO'd, barely threw much of anything, and still almost got put away.

    It's been a great career, but he's obviously way past it now.

    Thanks for the great career, Nate. Always be a fan...

    Sadly,yes, 3 losses in a row and is a shadow of his former performances.

    Seems like it was just yesterday Nate was regarded as a really large MW. Now he looks tiny out there. The cut to WW and his on again/off again TRT hasn't done him any good.

    I don't think so. Brad is the ultimate upsetter.. in line with the best. He takes absolutely zero risk and is all technique working patiently off the small openings of his opponent.

    Brad uses the same gameplan that guys like Aldo and GSP do. The safest possible way to win and it makes their opponents look exactly the way Nate did tonight.

    This, might be time to retire. Too many miles on him. He had a great career

    Might have just been the perfect storm. A combination of no more testosterone, all those training camps, age, and fight damage. It's like he lost it between the Woodley and Saffedine fights.

    He didn't do THAT badly, and I though he hurt him a few times. But yeah, he is clearly nearing the end of his career.

    The exact same words came out of my mouth after the fight ended. No disrespect to Tavares but the Nare from a few years ago beats the braked off of him.

    Great career and hats off to him but I agree he just doesn't have it anymore.
