What's a bigger fight.... Nate vs the former champ in probably a main event.
Or nate vs Matt brown? And don't get me wrong I love both fights.

But calling him a pussy for going for Pettis over brown? Come on now

Yea, I was just giving you a hard time lol. I don't think the diaz boys would ever really duck anybody out of fear. And yea, the pettis fight is the better fight for him.


Hahah ! Im starting to feel like I'm the Diaz bros defense attorney over here lmao I would love to see the betting line on that fight, Pettis would probably be a massive favorite over nate.

Hopefully training with joe schilling gives him a sense of what a kick is

I just don think Joe schilling makes much of a difference...He has trained with him before(I think)...Nate is still going to do the same ol' same ol. So it doesnt matter if he has schilling or not. Anthony has speed and footwork and doesnt have to worry about someone taking him down. Anthony via tko round 1

I think Nate definitely has the boxing advantage but I feel like pettis' footwork and speed are gonna be too much for him. Maybe if he starts fast he might be able to overwhelm Anthony like he did cowboy, but I wouldn't count in it. Stylistically, I think this is one of the worst matchups for him.

Yeah, no doubt...the only reason why cowboy got fucked by Nate is because Cowboy was so flustered he charged him and put himself exactly where nate needed him to be. Anthony is smart and wont make those careless errors. nate doesnt check kicks and Anthony could just go low, low, low and then follow up to the body or head. Once Anthony leans flush kick to either area, its over! Not many people can take a kick to the body from anthony, other than roided up RDA. :mrgreen:


but i just dont see nate being durable enough to take anthony's best shots, he is just going to be target practice for anthony. Nate lacks true one punch power as well, so its not like anthony has to worry about his mean left or right.

Nate has a long fucking torso and that is a giant target for Pettis to kick and I don't think Nate could out dps Pettis.

IDK Nate has a borderline OP sustain. All Nate needs to do is raise his AS and tank stats and he gots it in the bag
