Put him with Matt Brown, it will be a war.

Diaz wouldn't take the Condit rematch before so I doubt he came back for that. And I don't think anybody really wants to see it as it would probably be the exact same fight.

And I can't see Diaz taking on anybody who is a high caliber wrestler. He pretty much avoided wrestlers his whole career because they are bad match-ups for him. Can't see him coming out of "retirement" for that either

It has to be a standup fighter. Silva won't be ready until 2015 last I heard. I would think the promised him either the winner or the loser of the Lawler/Brown fight. Robbie has fought 3 times in 2 months so he can go pretty much any time. If Hendrix is going to be out a while from injury, it's possible it could be Robbie. Although that seems pretty unlikely that Robbie would do anything other than wait for Hendrix. So Brown would make the most sense. I honestly am having a hard time thinking of other fighters that could still make for a good payday for Diaz that he would have agreed to fight while probably waiting on Anderson for his second fight.

Diaz is done. Even if he does come back, i don't see him getting a title fight anytime soon.

I'm a Diaz fan, but Ellenburger and Woodley have a chance to wrestlef$%k him. Diaz has good boxing, but his TD defense is awful and he really doesn't use knees in his arsenal. Condit would avoid a brawl and win a dec again.

Since he is coming off a loss, Matt Brown would be an interesting fight.
