    It would be cool to have another Fight Night or Fight Pass card the day before a big PPV. I liked that with UFC 194 in December.

    In b4 "Nate fails a drug test fighting 2 days after 4/20"

    Pettis looked like shit against Eddie Alvarez, I wouldn't give him this fight so easily.

    That was probably before they lost a PPV and had to add another before 200

    Pettis via either head kick or body kick KO

    If they don't make this a main event they should make it a feature fight on 197.

    Jones/Cormier, MM/Cejudo and Pettis/Diaz is a damn good 3 fight lineup on a PPV.

    You make a solid point about 4/20.

    Pettis vs Diaz is a PPV caliber fight. Kind of strange to book this the day before a big event on the cable show.

    I really hope this happens. Pettis has trouble with pressure, and pressure is how Diaz rolls, albeit not so much in wrestling, but still.

    I doubt it would add any buys to 197 but would do great ratings for FS1. Plus it would be a five rounder.

    A Diaz fight 2 days after 4/20.

    Glorious.

    No way Nate holds him against the cage and takes him down all fight like Eddie/RDA.

    Just watch the replay on fight pass or something.

    You can't really do that for coachella.

    Diaz and Rosenthal in the octagon together right after 4/20...will smell kind of funny!
