    I think so...

    Also lets remember

    Pourier was the one who pulled out against Diaz, not the other way around...then Pourier got the interim titel shot

    So Diaz was looking to come back sooner...and if he beat Dustin, could then have fought Holloway and became the intern champ and be fighting Khabib at UFC 242

    I see Pourer lighting Nate up in round one with tight boxing. Nate looked rusty striking in round one.

    Dustin by TKO or UD. Nate might win RD 4 or 5, but he'd get fucked up in the early rounds.

    The Diaz that showed up vs MJ would put up a fight.

    The Nate that fought Pettis would get busted up hard by Dustin. Nate’s boxing looking sloppy and slow, Pettis just doesn’t do well to pressure and doesn’t know how to fight in the clinch.

    Dustin gassed vs Max because he threw fucking non-stop bombs for 2 rounds straight and still had the gas to last 3 more rounds and win. His output was insane. In other fights he’s more conservative and still had enough gas in the 4th round to finish Gathje with a long ass combo.

    His gas tanks is fine. Nate admitted to gassing against fucking Pettis in a 3 round fight that Nate was dominating. Nate looks old and slow, the 3 years off and pile of cash took a toll on him.

    The Nate from the MJ fight is long gone.

    The current version of Poirier is better than any version of Nate. If it were 3 rounds, I think Poirier wins relatively easily. Nate would have a better shot if it were 5 rounds, but I'd still favor Poirier.

    I think he would. If that fight hits the ground Diaz has a huge advantage, and we saw against Pettis hes working on his tools to get it there.

    Dustin also made 145 and Diaz has shown he can hang at 170. Plus I think Diaz probably beats him standing too

    If Poirier can box up Max, then he can box up Nate too. Nate's not going to take him down.

    Nate fucks him up. Dustin would get some decent shots in here and there but Nate would wear him down and probably get him to shoot, which would be the end.

    The reach would be a real problem and Nate has the power to hurt him. Against Pettis he showed more skills and that he can be patient and fight smart.
