    This isn't boxing. If he wants to fight, he should fight someone meaningful.

    It's good in theory but Nick will never take a tune up fight. He wants a money fight.

    But to answer your question I would love to see him and Matt Brown.

    Anyone that would fight nick would have to be high ranked if he has any intentions of getting that woodley or gsp fight

    I spoke to Nick, said he'd fight your old man anytime. For free.

    Yea because everything he said so far leads right into him wanting a tune up fight , it will be GSP for a lot of money or Woodley for the KO Lawler Belt

    Well that means McGregor is off the list, he could give Nick trouble with that Panick Wrestling.

    Jorge Masvidal.
    He has good boxing (striking in general), tough, and he isnt highly ranked, so i guess he can be considered a tune-up fight, although it is far from a gimme fight. Nick Diaz pressures too much for Masvidal to coast, in my opinion this is an interesting match up between two of the better boxers at welterweight.

    If they fought I would have Conor winning via 360 no-scope Kick KO.

  19. I agree he needs a tuneup or just anything that is not a title fight.

    Matt brown is an exciting fight, he's ranked (?), and he's beatable. If Diaz wins that we will have recent footage of him getting an actual win.
    Lawler vs Diaz II is also a great fight, popular guys, likely all stand-up. It'd be a huge statement if Diaz could pull off the win.
    Diaz Ellenberger could work too, very beatable.
    Diaz fans (myself included) will go bananas if he gets a win. I do not condone a title shot out of nowhere. I can accept a title shot off 1 win thought, as delusional as that may seem to anyone.

    So many poeple go on long streaks, and we're all like; 'I think he needs another W or two', but with Diaz it's like; 'title shot baby' *coming off a loss, LOL
    He needs one win before that though guys. Thats not too much to ask is it?

    (Rational) Diaz nuthugger.
