I disappoint.  I was looking forward this fight, but I like Story and I'd like him to win.  I like Nate, but if he does well at welterweight, does he take a title shot with GSP?  They're both Jackson guys.....

MMA Under 10 -  What is the height difference here? Phone Post

 Story's 5'10", Nate's an even 6'

Wow story is a fucking warrior. I was warming up to him after the alves fight. Now i am a fucking fan. I love guys that step up on short notice after JUST fighting a top guy! Fitch imo is really underestimating story IMO. I dont necessarily think rick will beat nate, but i guarantee you he will give nate a hell of a fight! If he somehow beats nate i honestly would have no problem putting story in line for a title shot after diaz! Phone Post

one thing people arent taking into consideration is how Nate adjusts to the weight cut Often the first time is tough and effects performance.Id have to give Story the slight edge But a great matchup over all

Nate will have a tough time. He might squeak out a decision as long as the weight cut doesn't bother him. Looking forward to see.

And when has Nate ever won a close fight?

Story should be able to edge it out, though Nates size could be too much

tbh a win over Nate at 170 doesn't do much for story. We have never seen Nate at this weight in the UFC and thus should be unranked in the division Phone Post

 Kind of feel like Story will win this fight to be honest.

So Fitch refuses a fight with Story because he wants to fight MAIN EVENT fights. Then Story gets the main event fight? I would much prefer Fitch vs Marquardt Phone Post

People aren't sleeping on Rick, they're sleeping watching him. I think this is a tougher fight for Nate than people think... He might be a big WW but he has always struggled when he's put on his ass. I say Bedtime Story by 15 mins of strong humping. Phone Post

 I just love the fact that Story, who just fought a top welterweight like Alves, stepped up to fight a perennial top 10 middleweight like Nate.  If Story wins, the UFC is gonna hook this dude up with something big.

Nate is a pretty well known fighter, a win over him on free TV would do a lot to boost Rick Storys name with casual fans

Story is a tough dude.He trains harder than a lot of guys in MMA.Brave Legion is a great place for him.Patrick Briceno (Boxing) and Pat White really take care of him.
Story is strong ,he has a great wrestling and is not affraid to stay on his feet .For the first fight at 170 for Marquardt ,that's a very bad matchup.Story just beat Alves and won his last 6 fight.This guy just lost 1 fight by dec in the UFC (His first fight in the UFC against John Hathaway in 2009 ).A Win would probably give him a title shot...Then maybe Fitch will accept to fight him ;0)

I am not sleeping on Story, but Nate is world class.
The only thing hindering Nate would be the weight cut, the first to WW in a long time.
He trained a lot of TDD before/after the Chael fight, and I doubt Story could take him down easily.
Nate will have a better game plan than Alves.
Story could take it, but i expect Nate to come strong.

LOL too bad Thiago couldn't bring enough to the table for that. He's incapable of having a back-and-forth fight, he either smashes people or folds
