Ideal situation: Jacare beats Whittaker, Weidman beats Mousasi and they fight in the main event.

Paddy Pimblett lost via UD over the weekend and with it his Cage Warriors FW belt and this is after he was basically given a gift of a decision in his first defense of it. He's only 22 but I think the prospect label needs to be removed for the time being, there was a lot of hype surrounding him because of his grappling chops but he's 13-2 now and is still showing the same holes in his game now as he did when he started his career. I hope he can shore up some of his liabilities because when he's on he's a super fun fighter to watch but he's been a pro for over four years now and unless he switches camps I doubt he will.

It's just WSOF under a different name and without all the talent the UFC took away.

Kayla Harrison is 165 pounds, I don't think they're going to be able to find legitimate competition to fight her and that's the only name they have. It kinda pisses me off  that these promotions only stay relevant long enough for the UFC to poach their good fighters.

Cody Garbrandt is threatening to sell the video of Dillashaw getting KO'd in training. TJ has responded by telling him to pick a charity and that it should be one for kids who grow up without fathers so they don't end up like Cody.

Dillashaw def. Garbrandt via vicious ethering.

Top 10, sure. I have my doubts about Top 5. I'd need to see him fight with a gameplan that doesn't exclusively consist of "Try crazy shit and rely solely on my chin".

this guy should quit fighting and become an actor for real. He knows how to play up his own image/character really well, he could probably get type cast in a few zac efron roles and make way more than whatever Dana pays him to put over workhorse grapplers.

Nate's full of shit just as much as Conor is. Those guys clearly respect each other as fighters but play up the hate angle to get paid.

That wasn't the point of the interview, he's right calling out all the media heads and public figures that have been milking this angle to build their own name without actually ever being close to the fight despite what programs Chael Sonnen said some guy who works for the MGM Grand had printed on them.

It's not not the point either though. He talks mad smack about Conor in the interview and tries to play up the feud when I'll bet they're cool with each other on the low.

I'm sure there's a respect as a fighter, but I doubt they're bros. The speech about taking everything he worked for is true because Conor was the golden boy from the jump, while Dana has actively tried to diminish Nate's drawing power almost every chance he's ever had.

I think you might be getting worked man. The point is to make money. If you gotta turn on the hate machine and hug the guy after the fight cause you guys just worked people into putting a shitload of money in your bank account, that's what you gotta do.

They hugged each other because of respect due to the fight for sure. All fighters do that.

I never said he hated him. But I think Nate looks at Conor as being fake, which is a negative quality.

http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/3/24/11296582/nate-diaz-conor-mcgregors-trash-talk-seemed-like-a-lot-of-scripted

He's always been consistent in saying this, whether a fight was being hyped or not. And there is for sure resentment over the difference in how the UFC promoted the two, but that has obviously subsided now.

Nate is cool with everyone anyway. The idea that he's antisocial is the greatest work he performed. All the fighters like Nate.

Bro. WTF is Dana's game saying Nate isn't a star and shitting on him publicly AGAIN? Do you think this kind of plot to rule him up will work? I think it's counter productive.

Among active current fighters, Nate is probably second to only McGregor as a draw.  A distant second, but second nontheless.

It's hard to tell how big of a draw Nate is without McGreggor. He's won 3 out of his last 7, and one of those wins was against a punchy Gray Maynard. If he's second to Conor it's only because of Conor. 155 could really use some stars.

Not many fighters could draw two and a half million viewers on Spike TV with Josh Neer. I understand the UFC business was different back then but the fact that Nate main evented so many TV events and was always getting cable TV ratings on the level of guys like prime Anderson and Conor shows that he's a draw.

There is no way Nate can actually be denied or not coveted at this point. It's all smoke and mirrors, has to be. Look what they do when they want Nick! They'll give him anything he wants! I think it's  a last ditch effort to tug at Nate's heart strings following his money demands during Ferguson negotiations. There is really no other logic.
