Nate is one of my favorites! I was surprised by how strong he looked at 170, and his striking was awesome.. Landed some heavy shots and he ground and pounded the **** outta Markham, was a good fight for Nate. I think he can make some noise in the welterweight division!

He will never be a world champion but he can be a good gate keeper no doubt. He's not a great but he's good.

Gate keeper? He's only 24.

I never said he would be a world champion, but I think he can make some noise in the division. He had struggled to make lightweight, and I think welterweight suits his six foot frame more.

He can beat most guys but as soon as he's put in there with a top guy he gets broken. He is alright tho..

Most of his loses were close decisions though, he hasn't really been broken so to speak, at least not yet.

Not yet indeed. The champions right now are in a league of their own. Diego Sanchez looked great, look what happened to him when he took on Penn. Fitch seemed unstoppable, look what happened to him when he fought GSP. Alves looked unstoppable himself... ect

That's why he won't be a champion but he's a GOOD fighter.

Penn destroyed Sanchez, that pissed me off because I really like Diego. But I get what you're saying, all these amazing fighters has looked almost invincible until they fought the likes of BJ Penn, Anderson Silva and GSP.

Nate Diaz can be champion. I been skeptical about him fighting at lightweight, finding out how much weight he has to cut. His recent loss at lightweight was to Gray Maynard but that fight could have went either way, in my opinion. All his losses have been close decisions, though. He's only 24 and I think Welterweight is better for Nate Diaz.

2 more fights for Nate Diaz in Welterweight and after he keeps running through his opponents, then you'll see what the real deal is.

I felt the same way about his brother Nick Diaz years ago about him not being able to be champ, but now I think Nick Diaz is top of the list. I think he can beat the top welterweights in the UFC and he is a totally different fighter than he used to be in 2005-2006. And Nick Diaz was around 24 at the time (same age Nate is now). Nate will only become better and he will be champ. I guarantee it.

I think Nick poses the greatest threat to GSP right now. Nate is still catching up but I think in a few years he'll get to that level...
