How do you guys see this one playing out? Do u think that Marcus will get the TKO/KO? Nate getting the sub? Nate's boxing is pretty solid and he looked real good in his fight with Rory...how do you all see it going down?

I dont see Nate KOing Davis that is for sure, I'm thinking of Diaz by decision but he has only 1 decision win, it would help to see them square off.

But who knows I've been thinking davis could possibly pull off a decision, as he is a good boxer with power.

This has FOTN written all over it. I think Nate will stand and box with Davis. I think their skills are very close in that area. And Nate will have a good reach advantage. I can see Diaz pitter patting his way into the third then finishing with a sub.

I think it's gonna look a lot like Nick Diaz vs Frank Shamrock.

9" reach advantage i believe.

Nate will stand with him the entire fight, or jump into a guillotine when davis goes for a takedown.

Diaz, easy money.

Marcus is going to do to Nate what Jeremy Jackson did to Nick and stop the fight in the second with punches. Diaz has the reach, but once Marcus gets comfortable with it it is game over unless Diaz tries (and fails) to take it to the ground. someone needs to humble Nate and i think Marcus is capable of doing just that.

words right outta my mouth. This is what I wish to see and it'll make it a excellent fight for this reason if it happens this way.

I think it's plausible to think it. I mean, look how Guillard embarrassed Diaz on the feet. I think Davis is better than Melvin in standup.

Gonna look like Lawler/Nick DIaz. Reach really is a big part of a striking battle in MMA.

I feel like I'm the only person here that saw Nate go limp when Pellegrino had him in a crucifix.

That being said, Nate looks good at 170, and should be able to beat Davis up.
