“[Michael Bisping and Demian Maia] are good fighters. Bisping can go and go, and Maia is good on the ground. But neither one of them has fought anyone who is as good as me or at the same level of fighter that I am. It would be a huge jump in class for them to fight me, and I think I could finish either one of them off in round one or two….

im just glad guys still want to get in there with silva, even after taking beatings from him. and nate was right, he was winning the fight until the finish, but that doesnt mean a whole lot because its not like he was dominating silva, and silva is a slow starter.

I actually thought he won the fight with Leites, and is legit top contendar after Okami. I think after Okami gets his title fight, Bisping and Nate should fight to see who gets the next shot.

I thought he won that fight for sure, but dropping the points cost him. He looked awesome against Kampmann to. I actually think a fight between him and Bisping would be awesome.

Except the only difference this time is that there's some bonafide legitimacy to his claims

i'll agree with him -- i think he can make pretty easy work out of both maia and bisping

he should walk through maia, i think bisping will be tougher, but id get the edge to him.


but ive picked against maia twice and hes proven me wrong both times.

Nate is a champ I think if he gets to fight Silva again he'd win. I respect his fight game a great deal and he is one of my favorites

I think Maia would sub him just like Almeida did.

Nate is a bad ass, and I think he takes Bisping out ground and pound style after dominating in the clinch. Maia is a bad matchup for him though. I think Maia would win sometime in the second after taking his back. I like Nate though. I'd love to see him fight Bisping. It'd be fireworks.

I think the Nate would handle Maia and Bisbing. I think that he is the best fighter at 185 not named Anderson Silva.

I think he beats Anderson if they fight again as well.

I agree with his statements regarding his upcoming matches. But I don't see what he's done in the UFC to be a coach. Have any of the coaches not had a belt in the UFC?

I believe what he says about Bisping. he would destroy him. Maia on the other hand woud sub him late in the 2nd IMO. Maia is going to be A Silva's next big fight @ 185. They both will have a fight before it goes down. Anderson will fight at 205 and Maia will fight hopfully Nate M(as long as he isnt a TUF coach), or the winner of Lister/Okami for #1 contender
