    I am a bit conflicted about the Lawler vs Diaz fight, on one hand I do like the rematch as it is a fight I want to see but when I think about how it will go I don't.

    I want to see Lawler get back into title contention again, if/when he wins over Nick Diaz he will just have won against a guy who have lost his last 3 and haven't
    been fighting for a long time.

    If Nick loses against Lawler we will probably just see him retire again and whine (big Diaz fan, but that has been the case as of late)

    That makes me rather want to see Lawler against Maia/Condit depending on how that fight goes and Nick against someone in the top ten to build him up a bit
    and make the comeback "stick" so he doesn't quit again if he loses the next after that.

    Also, besides from money there's not much to gain from fighting Nick if you are in the run for a title shot IMO because it shouldn't be a fight that makes you a contender
    considering his record as of late.

    With that said, the rematch I do want to see the most is Diaz vs Condit even though it makes even less sense.

    Great list.
    I don't know about Rose vs Valerie though. Didn't Val say that she won't do 115 anymore? Rose could avenge her L to Esparza because for some reason she is still ahead of her in the rankings.

    Masvidal, Ngannou, Benoit, Graves deserves a bigger step up in competition. Other than those good match ups

    The top 3 on that list are right on the money. Sadly I see t wood sitting out for a while hoping GSP and nick come back to fight him.

    Giving nick a title shot is a slap in the face to others even though he is a draw plus nick v robbie would be a better fight.

    Reis should be fighting for the title, he dispatches his opponent very well
    I like the other ideas, specially Brown vs Tumenov

    Krylov deserves better. Give him Bader IMO.

    Woodley vs Wonderboy
    Lawler vs Magny/Larkin winner (I have no faith in Diaz taking a Lawler fight now, hes obviously choice #1)

    Karolina vs JJ
    Namajunas vs Moroz/Taylor winner

    Ellenberger vs Story/Cerrone winner
    Brown vs Cote

    Perez vs Scoggins
    Rivera vs Gagnon

    Benoit vs Martinez
    Serrano vs Kelades

    Krylov vs Shogun (best chance to make Krylov a "contender")
    Herman vs Cutelaba

    Masvidal vs Barberena
    Pearson vs Sanchez 2

    Hamilton vs Cannonier
    Grabowski vs Ledet/Sherman loser

    Reis vs DJ
    Sandoval vs Zhikui

    Graves vs Ayari/Wallhead winner
    Velickovic vs Vettori/Uda winner

    Brown vs Northcutt
    Arzamendia-TUF vets who lose on the show and then get KO'd in the 1st in back to back fights usually don't get a 3rd crack

    They are hurting for contenders pretty badly in that division. Bader is already about to knock off Latifi in September, no need to do the same with Krylov.

    Glad to see so many people are calling for Nick Lawler 2. That fight HAS TO HAPPEN. I'll go fuckin crazy if anything else gets booked for them.

    I always look forward to your fights to make threads ,
    good work as always
    But as much as it could be a great fight i don't think Diaz deserves a top fighter at this point until he actually wins a fight
