    I can't believe he got in the cage with a broken knee and no workouts. The man is pure heart and doesn't back down ever. My man

    Nate does actually have a valid point...If you have been in the top 1-5 for 10 years then go ahead and talk...But the guy wins 2-3 of his fights and he has been fighting only top ten ranked opponents for years and years. Hee always sat around 5th cause he couldn't get past the very elite but he would put the breaks on anyone trying to crack in.
    His strength is that no matter win or lose...HE WILL BE THERE IN THE LAST ROUND WHETHER 3 or 5. Guys higher rank who cant claim that.
    Nate and Nick are both slow twitch fiber fighters...They don't have explosion...which makes me admire them even more....They can be slower comparatively to most top ufc fighters...while they have the benefit of endurance it isn't easy to push that strength in TIMED FIGHTS.
    But they do and they give great fighters a run regardless of outcome.
    Masvidal looked fantastic as expected...I don't think two more rounds would of turned the outcome but perhaps a bit closer, who knows...But he wasn't going to finish Nate as much as he was trying.
    Great fight.

    Beat Conor twice ?? Be honest Nate. Your face was tagged more times than a $5.00 hooker in both fights. Conor's bad cardio is what beat Conor.

    is it mandatory for the fighters to do press? or this amount? Is it part of their financial contract to do this? Cause it seems excessive.

    I love Nate, but it's ridiculous that he keeps saying he beat Conor twice. Conor had 3-4 knockdowns in the fight, was never really hurt, and did way more damage. I know Nate cuts easily, but CM landed the bigger shots and put him down with them. I had 3 rounds for CM, 1 for Nate and then 1 was dead even imo. He's lucky the scorecard was as even as it was though because CM didn't get a 10-8 round with those knockdowns and Nate was awarded one in the 3rd by one of the judges. Masvidal vs. Nate should be a goody, can't wait.

    Can any Masvidal fans understand and recognize the fact that the diaz brothers have never changed their fight style and continue to give problems to the top elite fighters......
    Masvidal is a great fucking fighter and dangerous but when are people gonna recognize that the fighters adjust to the diaz brothers.....the diaz brothers dont adjust to the enemies....
    I see nate winning by tko/ submission by the late rounds or a decision due to masvidal gassing out by the 3rd round
