20-12 gatekeeper Diaz felt the need to admire the skills of not only Khabib but of Gaethje....

We have seen time and time again Nate get trashed at WW, perhaps he is looking at a return to LW for his final UFC fight(s).

Gaethje vs Nate would be a fun fight. Nates reach vs Justin’s coming forward I think Nate would like this fight. If he is getting beat in the stand up he can submit Justin rather easily if he gets it to the ground

This Nate Diaz guy needs to be put down for good. I’d say give him Colby next. He will retire Nate

Khabib would probably rag doll him, but who knows...

Nate is at least a 10-1 dog vs Khabib. He would get destroyed. Maybe a 20-1 dog.

Tbf is jiu jitsu is miles ahead of the guys he named and he gave Khabib the Stockton slap so technically he already beat Khabib

Never bet against the Diaz brothers. The only people who can beat them are themselves.

Nate is not a gatekeeper

Khabib is the worst match up for Nate. Nate struggles against wrestlers who can smoother.

Gaethje has low leg kicks. Nate has struggled against this in the past. His wrestling should be able to defend nate's takedowns. If Nate gets top position, fight is over. Gaethje's endurance is subject too. He looked exhausted due to pressure from khabib. Nate could apply similar pressure

Nates pressure would mean little to Gaethje. There is zero chance of Diaz being able to take Gaethje down.

Nate's pressure would also be met with Gaethje's brutal kicks. Its a more winnable fight for Nate than the Khabib fight but I think Gaethje is still the favorite there.

I think Nate beats JG but loses to KN but, unlike the last 3 guys, he’s lose by decision

Nate probably has a better chance against khabib than he does against Justin

I like Nate. But Khabib would do same thing to him that Rory did.

Why did he tweet 29-1?

Because he smacked up Khabib in the crowd a few years ago.
