    Right now obviously Nate since Nick hasn't fought in ages, but prime for prime who's better? To me it might be about equal, they both fight pretty much the same style, boxing and BJJ, both have the same body build too

    Both are about the same.
    Both failed to beat elite fighters at every single opportunity.

    Nate beat Conor. Conor was certainly elite at that point in time.

    Nick beat Gomi, you know, one of the best LWs ever and Nate chokes out a former double champ.

    To answer your question TS, I think Nick is the more complete fighter of the 2, he seems to have the better boxing and the better TDD. BJJ offense might be the only place where Nate is better than Nick imo.

    Nick has better wins imo, even if Nate beat Conor, at the same time Conor isnt exactly an all time great despite the 2 belt thing, Nick beat Lawler, BJ Penn, Shamrock, Gomi.

    Nicks wins are misleading. Nate beat conor at his absolute best. That matters.

    Nate is the only blemish on Conor prime run. That a big win despite size advantage

    Nick is better. Technique and skillwise, Nick is only a little better but Nick is more athletic. He also has noticeably more power and strength.

    Nick Diaz is the better fighter, he’s better than everywhere other than the clinch.
    Nate has had a better career
    • McGregor(ATG wheather Sherdog likes it or not )
    • Pettis(ATG lightweight fresh off WB ko)
    • Miller
    • Maynard
    • gomi
    • MJ
    • Gamburyan
    • Cowboy
    It’s a better resume than Nick who fell short on a couple of occasions. Plus he’s made way more money which also helps.

    Penn and Shamrock were past their primes at that point, I like Nate's resume better, Prime Cowboy, Prime Conor, Pettis, etc

    Conor fought like an idiot in that fight and beat him the next time, definitely not Conor at his absolute best

    If we go by size advantage, then most of Conor’s FW run are blemishes..

    How? Conor made FW too. He’s not a giant

    I'm starting to lean towards Nate on this one. He's racked up some nice wins: Cerrone, Miller, Johnson, Conor, Pettis...

    He barley beat Nate the second time. He was gassing bad in 5th. Nate was taking over that round too
