On Saturday night, Nate Diaz has a chance to win. After being beaten and bleeding for four rounds by Leon Edwards, Diaz got a clean right-left combination late in the fifth inning and allowed Edwards to stagger backwards.

Edwards survived this round and walked out of the octagon with a unanimously decided victory in the welterweight competition.

When Joe Rogan interviewed him later, Diaz seemed a little disappointed in winning the L. There is something to deal with.
Diaz seems to lack killer instincts, which led Twitter to take action, but his ability to go further has earned him almost all his blood and respect:

Nate Diaz: Smoking weed on a pre-check press. Was beaten for 24 minutes. Bleeding a lot. Almost won. Invite everyone to his house for a party. #legend
