    So all 3 fighters are coming off losses and I think Diaz vs Brown would make more sense and be the more exciting action filled fight but Diaz vs Lawler has history and is a very intriguing match up.

    Which fight would you guys rather see?

    If someone could make this a poll I'd appreciate that.

    I think that Nick and Brown would be an exciting fight. Nick says that he wants to be in the cage with people who come to fight. Brown fits that description.

    But Nick also wants money fights and Brown doesn't qualify.

    He just wants the biggest payday he can get. Can't blame him I guess. But he hasn't been exciting in a long time.

    I think you're right in 5 rounds Diaz out paces both guys and his body shots might hurt Brown and Diaz could then sub him. I do worry about Brown's elbows against Diaz. Lawler is very scant in his offense in his 5 round fights.

    Love to see him rematch Lawler, but both fights are fun.

    He won't take a fight with brown, but it would be great to see exactly where Nick is motivation wise, and skill wise, before I shell out $60 to watch him fight.
    I don't want to pay another 60 bucks to watch the Nick that fought Anderson.

    That said, I'd love to see him fight lawler. Mostly cause I think lawler knocks him cold.

    I don't think Brown can get a W over Diaz.
    But I do think Nick can use a win right now to get back on track, so I wouldn't like it against Lawler, he has evolved a lot since they first met.

    The Lawler fight obviously. The Brown fight would be "what bitch-one-two-Stockton slap-body punch-he's hurt, Mike, Brown is hurt-fight back- that's it.-it is aaaaaa..."

    If Woodley fights GSP next, Wonderboy should fight Nick.

    I'd like to see Diaz vs. Brown. It would be a guaranteed exciting fight, and would show us where Nick stands in the division. At this point, especially after Nick's inactivity, I'm not convinced that Lawler wouldn't just steamroll him in the first round.

    That being said, Nick doesn't seem interested in fighting lesser known guys like Brown, and I'm certainly not opposed to the Lawler rematch happening now. So either is awesome.

    Agreed, I think Diaz vs Brown is possibly the most exciting fight you can make between any two fighters on the roster.

    Both fights are cool but I would rather see Lawler.
    I think Brown as much as I respect him is outgunned by Diaz , but again it would be a cool fight

    Give me a break! Diaz doesn't have any recent achievements that would put him on a par with Wonderboy.

    If they are going to give Woodley a money fight while Wonderboy sits around and waits, why not give Wonderboy a nice payday?
    It would also give Wonderboy a lot of name power for his eventual title shot against the winner of Woodley/GSP.

    Brown I could see being a boring opponent to be honest. Just a stalemate. If that fight went to decision Diaz would lose fans no matter what. Diaz' strength is in being able to stall the best offensive fighters out there. I could see Brown's reach being an issue for Diaz and if Brown didn't go in guns blazing it'd be a snooze fest.
