    He has the same weaknesses all throughout his career, boxing stance, heavy on lead leg which gets kicked to oblivion by his opponent. Lack of kicks and wrestling…

    In contrast you get fighters whose weakness is exposed and they work to rectify it. Not sure how much is Nate or how much is his team but you know what’s going to happen every-time he fights.

    Too much weed. Also the lack of meat in his diet makes him weak and uncoordinated. Hence the sloppy kicks and bad tdd.

    because the diaz bros are objectively the best fighters with the best style but UFC rules favor wrestlers who point fight and lay and pray

    You know how much adapting a simple leg kick check wouldve done for him? He prob been a champ already.

    “Evolve”? Lol dude about beat the 3rd best WW on the planet at age 37, what you’re asking for out of him is hard to get for any MMA fighter at this stage of their career let alone one who still finds plenty of success by staying within himself.

    For all of the flack Nate gets for things he says, one thing is accurate. He’s outlasted plenty of champions and new fighters, and has only been finished twice in over 30 fights. Idk what more you want from him? Point fighters like Leon come and go because they don’t know how to deal with adversity (which is why he was dancing in the 5th) Nate’s triathlon training, diet, and lifestyle have allowed him to be durable and lean on boxing and BJJ and he’s still competitive. Let the old dog be.

    that also accounts for why he was too dopey to KO Leon when he was standing there wobbling. By the time it occured to him it was too late lol

    Oh look it’s the dummy that thinks he needs a better striking coach. Yeah I’m sure dude has gone on this long not knowing what a leg check is, go watch the Pettis fight.

    Lol we all know if Israel could retire from MMA and just have fighters put their asses in his face instead he'd love it.

    the diaz bro's mindset is it is never their fault they lost and therefore never need to improve
