It's pretty weird when you think about it. For most purposes, they're extremely similar fighters. Like brothers, or something. :icon_chee - with the catch that plenty of MMA brothers aren't actually all that similar (Fedor and Alex...). Similar style, similar capabilities, similar weaknesses, and wins/losses as result. They talk similar weird stuff, creating same '209 wat" public image. Yet when Nate is trying to get small raise, he's getting removed from rankings, doesn't get fights and is being hardballed in general. Then gets thrown to Dos Anjos for devouring. Meanwhile, Nick does about the same stuff, runs away from fucking main event, tests positive for weed, get's suspended, retires about 3 times.... And now is headlining fucking PPV against Anderson Silva. So, what's the difference? Was being Strikeforce main draw + following media attention after going to UFC really sufficient to give him such strong position?
