Agreed. Nate Diaz could still win a decision over Frankie even if he was getting taken down repeatedly and having to fight off his back. Nate would get the better of the standup, and then on the ground would force Frankie to defend subs, and as I said earlier, I believe Nate Diaz striking off his back does more damage to Frankie Edgar than Frankie does GnPing Nate from top.
I still think Nate will be able to fight off the TD or bounce back up and beat Frankie up though.
