Nate's reach could obviously pose Frankie some major problems, but counting on Nate to fight smart isn't really the safest bet to make. I agree 100% that Frankie isn't gonna be hurting Diaz at all, but he could certainly frustrate him, the way he obviously had Maynard and Penn frustrated, hurt or otherwise.
The more I think about it, the more I'd like to see Diaz/Edgar, regardless of the outcome tomorrow.
We continue to disagree on that point - I do not believe Frankie will be able to hold Nate down at all.
But, we are in agreement on the main point, I'd also love to see this fight. Lightweight is officially 'The Shit'.
