Except Nate has the far bigger reach. I think Nate would batter Frankie personally. Good fight though.

Nate Vs Bendo should be next up, **** the Frankie rematch.

Pettis Vs Barboza please

Frankie mixes his kicks well with his boxing. I think he would mix it up well enough to outwork Nate over the fight. BUT - it's premature to even talk about it at this point because we still have to wait for Bendo/Edgar before we even know who Nate will fight. Honestly I say let Nate and Pettis fight while we wait. Then we'll have a real number one contender.

Nah, Barboza-Pettis. If anything, Nate should fight the winner of Guida-Maynard IMO. No reason Pettis should be ranked over them off the back of Stephens and Lauzon.

Pettis v Barboza would be guaranteed fireworks!

Nate would **** Frankie up, something shocking.

Frankie could make featherweight easily and Nate could be competitive at Welterweight, against all but the top 5 Welterweights.

Shit - he has to do it first for it to be shocking. Nate lost to Gray Maynard something shocking. Frankie knocked him out. How you like that?

Im not the biggest fan of either of the Diaz bros but is pretty hard to argue that Nate doesnt deserves a shot at the belt

He dominated Cowboy and Miller and pulled a great sub on an admittedly past it Gomi

Id like to see him in with Pettis, to see if he can handle a kicking heavy stand up style ala Nick v Condit though in the meantime. He did have a lot of trouble with R-Mac in their WW fight, seems to be the Diaz' stylistic Achilles heal

Frankie "The Ant" Edgar going up against Nate Diaz will turn out like Duran against Hearns.

It is best you prepare yourself emotionally for this.

Look to Submissions, dumbarse.

This is MMA, not Boxing, so whilst the physical dimensions of the comparison are valid, obviously the means of destruction will be different.

Who did Hearns ever submit dumb ass?

The Hitmans one punch kod of Duran is surely a good comparison to Diaz taking someone down, getting the hooks in, and applying a sub...

Except that Hearns and Duran could neither kick nor take each other down so that analogy makes no sense whatsoever.

Hell, Frankie could just outwrestle Nate all night if he just wanted to go for the win.
