    Ferguson is very good fighter that never had a great PPV pay day, he would accept Nate Diaz immediately, the UFC would probably not need to use any of their sticks to make him sign that bout agreement. Nate can sell PPV's and Tony would assist him with that task during the promotions weeks, maybe they both bash Conor at the same time?

    It's ok, most casuals and those who don't train or compete in mma, are on the outside looking in. It happens.. especially with social media, etc.. keeping things under wraps is more important today, then ever.

    Oh yeah? Well I grew up in Frisco since 1978, so the Golden gate does nothing for me unless I'm getting filmed doing wheelies on the Harley across it. Thanks though kiddo.

    Why would they reward Woodley with Nate Diaz, can't believe it.
    I would go for Nate vs Conor 3, or Nate vs Ferg than Woodley because he is pegged as boring by now, U are as enterianing as your last fights and Woodley two last has been sleeping pills.

    On the other hand, why tf would they reward Nate Diaz a title shot at 170? That's equally absurd.

    Respectfully, I disagree. Neither Diaz brother is a proven draw or big seller. They've had some good events (Diaz/Conor/Conor, Diaz/GSP/Silva), but the majority of that credit goes to their opponent. A Diaz/Ferguson fight is a die-hard fans dream, and would be fireworks for as long as it lasted, but I don't think that necessarily translates into big PPV numbers.

    That being said, a PPV against Diaz would never bring Ferguson the sales, exposure, or money that the Conor fight does. I think Diaz has enough skills to make it dirty and bring a battle of attrition to Tony and not worth the risk. I would have Ferguson as the favourite to win, but not by a wide enough margin to think it's worth risking the future title shot against Conor if he's patient.

    But both of them would most definitely have some choice words for Conor.

    Mcgregor vs. Ferguson should be the fight . If they can't make it and could make Diaz vs. Ferguson then that would be a great fight but somehow i just get this feeling that Diaz will do what he always does and continue to chase down Mcgregor.

    Fight against Ferguson would suck. Tony would take him down and lay and pray to victory.

    the UFC is making the right decision to get conor and nate back into the cage. conor thinks he's an MMA god and he needs a few Stockton slaps across his mug to bring him back to reality.

    I follow Nate on Strava and he's really starting to increase his activity. Dude just ran 15 miles, 4000ft elevation gain at 9:40 average mile. Those numbers are impressive so I'd say he's training for something.

    I have little interest in this. We know Nate is better and can choke him out at any time of his choosing.

    Plus defend the belt ALREADY.

    It's time to circle back to meaningful fights.

    He looks big. Getting down to 55 may be difficult, esp considering he missed weight badly vs RDA. I do not think he will miss weight tho, as a percentage of his purse will go to Conor and that will be like a million dollars.

    I hope it's Nate vs. Tony. No, it doesn't make sense but I want to watch it.
