Nate by armbar from the bottom. But people thinking Nate would win a ONLY stand-up war would be in for a rude awakening.
I think Nate would close the distance, try to go for a takedown but end up on his back but from there submit chris with an armbar or a triangle.

Nate is a much more complete fighter and would dominate hordecki on tha ground

horedecki is years ahead of emerson plus nate cant take anyone down for his life

Horodecki doesn't display a ton of power. He had one great soccer kick win last season, but this season, he has had to win by decision twice in order to solidify a victory. Yes, he dominated the standup in both bouts, but didn't show any power with the punches. He needs to get stronger, but at 19, he's pretty damn quick boxer and definitely will improve.

Nate can dominate in the ground,but Chris is better in the stand up game.So,I think it would be Horodecki by UD or even a (T)KO

Nate, I feel he has better standup as well. Chris is really overrated. Bart beat him pretty badly (can't believe he didnt get that dec) also Nate's standup is pretty impressive. His BJJ is insane though for so young.

That is pretty ignorant...Chris is not years ahead of Emerson. Emerson gets a bad rep from the show but he is a great fighter. He has fought Mishima, Javier Vasquez, Melvin Guillard and Jens Pulver. Also I have seen all of his fights..and I can honestly say he has got ****** outa the Mishima...Guillard decisions horribely. Also I think he won the fight against Hill. I guess Jen's back in his prime couldn't finish Robert so that made him a bad fighter? (Jen's was in his prime back when they fought..and it was Roberts first Pro MMA fight)

Diaz. But I seriously can't wait for Chris to get a couple more years of experience under his belt. When he's around 24-25 he's going to be a force in the division.

he may be non stop but he doesnt have stoping power. hes very technical and i say he would pull a ud. becouse he has shown good take down defence and diaz has shown he lacks takedowns so thats the key. and about emerson i agree ive seen im fight i think he just choked on tv cuse the show
