With all that said, obviously, Dana will offer Nick the fight, its not a matter of IF, but its a matter of WHEN.
Nick brought it up originally

Nick has been asking for it much, much more than Anderson and his team

Nick has said that he wants $2 million for the fight to pay back taxes

Now kindly go read about what's actually happened and come back when you're done.

It's okay, I know you won't.

What a bunch of BS.... typical of Sherdog.

Anderson is the one who has started this whole story of fighting Nick, prior to Anderson calling Nick out, it wasn't a story at all.

Nick does not owe back taxes and is not in trouble with the IRS. Just idiot people who don't understand context when listening to Nick talk.

Now kindly go hate somewhere else.

Its ok, I know you won't.

If Dana really wanted to show "UFC superiority" and make an example of Nick, then the UFC would just stop offering Nick fights. Nick has already said he's officially retired, so its not as though Dana would have to do anything to get rid of Nick, and yet the UFC keeps on offering Nick fights and the fight they're offering is always better than the last one. Why is that?

Clearly, you don't know what you're talking about.
Why would he dump Nick now when he can still use him to sell a couple fights?

Once the truly slow figure out exactly who Nick is, then he will no longer have enough value for Dana to put up with him.

You're basing your conclusion on the assumption that Dana is "putting up" with Nick, and that they don't want Nick, but the truth is, the UFC brass loves Nick. This is why they've been putting together strings of offers where one is better than the next.

The only "truly slow" around here are those who believe that no one wants to watch Nick fight, or that he's irrelevant.

Nick is the bigger draw but Nate never got to go on a world championship run against the guys that Nick did.

In before some a-hole says:

"Nick the needle mover?!?! More like Nick the Needle Dick".

Although they'd have to know what a needle mover is first. LOL at this board.

Unless Diaz is actually going to fight I think the UFC/media should stop talking about him.

I'm really getting disinterested in hearing about him.................

I think it was Pettis who dropped a pretty good clue on this weeks The MMA Hour with Helwani when he got asked if he has seen either Diaz brothers on the Ultimate Fighter set and he said he had only seen Nate once and that Nick was training for an upcoming fight or something so he hasn't been around. Would have to re-watch to get the exact quote though.
