We haven't seen this guy compete in nearly three years. There's a blue print to beat Nate, Henderson showed it and RDS as well.https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4x1l69
Nate vs RDS
If people seriously think that Nate would be able to stop the takedowns or beat Nurmagomedov in general.
Watch Nate vs RDS and afterwards watch RDS vs Nurmagomedov.
Nate fights long and that opens him up for takedowns and legkicks. Nate would be perfect for brassknuckle fights, he doesn't hit full strenght and overwhelms people while not having to deal with kicks. As he doesn't check kicks well.
