    This is actually the most important thing what Nate said.
    They called him all the time to make this fight.

    Conor at the other side said something like Jose ,Edgar and RDA ran away.he said all but he didnt mention why they refused to fight Ferguson or Khabib or Pettis.

    Interesting that none of the reporter asked this question

    Wasn't Nate asking after the MJ fight during his little post fight tirade?

    ferguson and khabib are already fighting on fox, and ufc can't change that because they have to give fox something

    pettis has lost his last 2, the cage kick hype has expired

    Ferguson and Khabib true champ are non-issues. They're both tied to a big Fox card, the UFC cannot pull them due to contractual obligations.

    I think after his callout after the MJ fight Diaz has gotta be the biggest fight they can make right now.

    CAsuals don't care about Khabib or Ferguson. Pettis could've been in with a shout though.

    I am sure they would solve all issues with Fox if they wanted.

    By the way, Nate did ask to fight Conor after his last fight,important is after RDA pulled out he said he didnt ask they called him

    Of course, but then UFC would have to give them something in return, like a fight on an existing PPV. In the end it's much easier taking fighters not currently signed on to anything.

    Nate said they been calling him about this fight for months (impossible) and he was willing to fight at 155.

    Why do you think Diaz makes any sense?

    They called him before that to fill in for Aldo the first time, but then went with Mendes instead.

    I would liked to have seen him against Pettis since they both like to kick the shit out of their opponents

    The most important thing he said was, basically that he has already started to lay the ground work on excuses. " I didn't have a full camp", and " how many guys did you spar this month? " Pathetic really. If he wanted the fight so bad, and they have been calling for months, why isn't he ready?

    Wonder why he didn't take it back then? I don't remember where Nate was at as far as time out from his last fight etc but he couldn't have been worse off then now.
    I do wonder what kind of conspiracy shit goes on behind the scenes.

    U r acting like it is Nate's foult.why should he work his ass off if he is not scheduled for a fight.no one would do according the to some calls with a maybe.
    Just deal with it,they chosed the most out of shape fighter who can not reject the pay check.
     
  17. They didn't ask him because it was nonsensical everyone saw his post fight speech in the last fight. When he starts with 'I didn't ask' you dismiss the statement and move on to something more relevant like 'I didn't have a full camp :('

    Nate asked for the fight after the Johnson match, he may as well have been on his knees begging
