    Who would you match him up with?

    What’s the overall plan for his return? Is it a one and done? Superfights only? Title shot eventually?

    I think Anderson’s last fight being nick diaz instead of hall could have been fun. Missed opportunity imo. Well see. I don’t expect him to be competitive for a title. But of course, he is very talented and it’s certainly possible.

    Probably an up and coming striker

    Aren’t they already working on Nate vs Masvidal for next year? Thought Dana confirmed it

    Agree there’s a great story there if Nate loses again though

    Masvidal because the name is still a bit revelant, he has a story with the Diaz bros and is a bit past his prime so its marketable as the casuals may think it will be competitive.

    Can’t see them throwing away the chance for a monster PPV for Nick’s return in favour of pairing him up with an up and comer. Unless that is Diaz is back to try and take a path to a belt and legit wants to see if he’s still got it.

    Wasn’t Masvidal just responsible for one of the largest PPVs of all time? He’s more than a bit relevant

    Who cares??? The dude hasn't won a fight since 2011 and looked embarrassing against Silva in his last fight in 2015. Anybody who thinks Nick will be competitive against the elite at 170 are smoking some damn good shit.

    In my mind they try to rub some of his star power off on someone else. Look at what happened to holly Holm, khabib, Nate.. they know he’s old, he has a name though and they can make a name off it

    Josh Growsenthal. Any fight will be ruled a no contest after testing anyways.

    Dude hasn't won a fight in 9 years. Give him an entertaining big name on a skid. Lawler, RDA, or Cowboy make sense.

    IMO Lawler makes the most sense because there's history there.

    Nick’s return will probably do a level of PPV buys only a few fighters can top, safe to say a lot of people care.
