    Nick all the way. I think Nick would beat Conor. I think Conor will knock out Nate.

    Nick is better standing, Nate is better on the ground.

    Nick is mentally stronger I feel. But Andre Ward said that Nate's boxing was sharper though, and who am I to doubt to that guy when it comes to boxing.

    I would pick Nick to win a fight between the two today with 100% certainty

    Lol. I didn't even read the OP. Just responded to the thread title like a legit Sherdogger should.

    I think Nate had more potential and was heading towards the best fighter at lw status but then he once again failed his weight cutting thing vs Bendo and seemed to lose interest. He looked as good as he used to vs MJ but Johnson still pretty much gave that fight away by using the stand and bang tactic instead of leg kick and run that he did in the first round.

    Nick even if he's one of my all time favourite fighters, is still a quite overrated grappler but his unique stand up is one of the best in mma.
