    Says this was after the scrum, Dana sort Luke out to further debate how big Nate Diaz is.

    Nick Diaz is fucking delusional. He only wants "big fights", while 1) we don't even know what's his concept of a "big fight" to begin with and 2) he thinks he deserves a lot more than he actually does, since his last win was over a fat lightweight when Steve Jobs and Joe Frazier were still alive.

    you would have a point, but the fact that the ufc is trying everything to give him a fight just shows that he is a draw

    Well, he sure does attract attention and it's obviously interesting to have him on the roster. It's just natural for the UFC to offer him fights.

    The fact that he's declining the offers just shows that he thinks he deserves more than he's being offered - while he hardly does, given his last victory in 2011.

    If Nate's asking for 20 then Nick's probably asking for 50.

    Nick just needs to take a few not so big fights and get some wins to build his name back up.

    Nick thinks he is worth more than he actually is. Don't get me wrong, he is still a draw, but not fighting hasn't helped him.

    Even worse. BJ Penn is a fat featherweight.

    Just remember, before he was a fringe top 5 lightweight, Nate Diaz was a welterweight who was beaten by both Dong Hyun Kim and Rory MacDonald, so, yes, while he could fight at welterweight, he would probably be a fringe top 15 guy there, if that.

    Should have paid more attention. I kept seeing people post about Nate being a big WW threads and thought this was more about him declining fights. My bad.
     
  19. Tough spot here.

    I don't doubt that Nick has turned down some fights, but I also believe the opposite of anything Dana says on principle.

    Funny he said he didn't want to fight Lawler because Robbie was coming off a loss, but he hasn't had a fucking win in like 5 year's. How does the UFC let Rory slip through there fingers but there hanging on to Nick with a death grip?
