Pettis wins this fight eight times out of ten in my opinion but he's getting in a war and by no means is it an easy payday, underestimate a Diaz at your peril.

    I've always said that Nate Diaz was susceptible to headkicks. Thomson exposed that, so thats why I was so butthurt that he lost because I wanted Pettis to expose him instead. But now the cat is out of the bag. Pettis would kill him. Anthony Pettis by Headkick KO in the first round.
    Been on the Anthony "Showtime" Pettis train since day one. No questions asked. Showtime Attack Force Too Strong.

    Pettis would seriously knock either Diaz bros block off.

    They are tailor made for him to kick over and over again.. in the face.

    uhm, fighters evolve, I imagine Nate would consider the possibility of it happening again, especially against someone like Pettis and put some hours in training to defend it. First round KO might be a little optimistic.

    I like Nate, but I don't think he's going to evolve in correcting the holes in his game while training out of the Gracie gym, which is primarily just boxing and jiu jitsu. It's most likely the reason Shields circuit trains at other gyms...and Nate switching back and forth between weight classes is not going to fix the problems. If he loses his next fight, he most likely will be cut. Considering that, he's not very smart calling out someone like Pettis.

    If Nate could get him to the ground he would have success. As much as I like Nate he should avoid standing with Pettis. He should hit the weights and stop killing himself trying to make 155. He's just as big as his brother these days. He needs to get physically stronger and go up. He's one of the most drained lightweights on the scale.

    Nate showed he's human and can be stopped w/ strikes. With that in mind, and how predictable the bros. are I'd have to go w/ Pettis. Whether it would be easy or not I would doubt. Nate's a challenge

    I am an idiot for thinking GSP could finish the P4P GOAT Nick Diaz within 5 rounds

    Pettis either beats the living **** out of Nate for 3 rounds. Circle, counter, rinse and repeat for 15 minutes. Which would lead to another Diaz whine about how he's too dumb to use lateral movement, or whatever him and his sister cry about. Or, more likely, Pettis literally kicks Diaz's head off his shoulders late in the first round. I'd pray for the 2nd option, because I would lose my **** if I had to hear him cry, "Wah, wah, it's a **** move to step to the side to avoid my punches."
