    Think about it from Nick and UFC's standpoint.

    People suggesting Nick won't be competitive with the elite, hasn't won in forever, blah, blah, blah...that is completely irrelevant....and it seems crazy to think either the UFC or Nick will seek a matchup with some up-and-comer or scrub.

    The ideal situation for both Nick and the UFC is to be flexible and account for either a one-and-done or a multiple fight situation, so a return fight would ideally be both high-profile and winnable fight for Nick that could lead to something even bigger and more lucrative for all involved.

    Lawler should therefore be the top choice, IMHO...assuming guys like Jorge or Thompson are not in the mix (and both are far less winnable). It is easy to market with footage from their first fight, the style matchup makes sense for both of them , and this could *easily* still be no worse than a PPV co-main or headline an ESPN card. A win (or even a competitive loss) would lead to another high-profile fight and could benefit Lawler too.

    I don't mind Pettis as an option...but his fight with Nate is too recent and I'm not sure it makes as much sense overall as Lawler.

    Lawlers the easy choice and the easy choice is often the best.

    The Ufc gets a big fight and even if Diaz loses they get a guy they love a win.

    If Diaz wins then you give him a bigger challenge like Masvidal.

    Thompson is too good for Nick he should not be an option.

    Dan Hardy. Both have been out forever. Robbie, Pettis or Condit would be fun aswell. Also Ferguson if he loses his next fight.....

    Mike Perry would be a nice comeback fight to see where he was.

    Yes but the first fight wasn't competitive. Nick getting revenge for his little brother would be a good story

    Nate is the only fight that would get me excited.

    I think a Thompson fight is far less winnable for him than a Jorge fight.


    But win or lose, I think Jorge or Lawler are the fights to make for him.

    Why would we need to see Jorge/Nate II?? That is probably the dumbest fight to make. Their first fight wasn't even close. They should make the Nick/Jorge fight instead to see if Nate can get revenge for his brothers loss, or Jorge can be known as "The Diaz Killer".

    I just can’t see Nick returning to steal a multi-million payday from a rematch his brother wants...

    Nick did talk about wanting the fight before. But if Nick takes the fight I'd assume that means Nate really doesn't want it.
