    Both coming off suspension, both showing interest in a big fight. Why not? Let's do it at MW. The build-up would be epic. The fight is interesting.

    Im a fan of both, I don't know who I like more.
    Style wise though Sonnen is huge and probably best wrestler Nick has fought(bigger/stronger than GSP) If he can avoid the sub he would lay on Diaz with ease.

    If the UFC allows non-USADA bouts I could see this happen.

    Nick vs a much bigger wrestler is not a stylistically great fight. Pre fight build up would be great though.

    yes for the press conference.

    the fight, meh.


    Sonnen is a bad matchup for Nick
    + I doubt he would comeback to face a wrestler.

    Sonnen Vs Lig Nog in brazil plz

    Sonnen is a big wrestler with cardio. I like Diaz chances against Woodley better.

    I think Chael and the Diaz bros are actually good friends, so don't know if Nick would fight him.

    The pre fight talk would be epic, maybe more exciting than the fight itself. I would tune in though for sure

    I like this idea but the fight itself may be really uninteresting

    But it's a fight that allows both to come back without taking a fight/spot from any top 10 of any division which I like

    I like it...sell those wolf tickets!

    I'm a big fan of both but I think the man with biggest arms and the greatest charm would dominate Nick
