    Nate talks about it on this. Can you fucking imagine? Nick would have won that shit easily and we would have got Nick vs GSP in 2006. Entire MMA history could have changed if Nick didn't have such an ego lmao

    That would have been insane. Nick would have been going straight up cuh-razay in the TUF house.

    People would have gotten the taste Stockton Slapped clean out their mouths.

    Yah, but he didn't. Also, who knows if he wins it all?? Matt Serra and Chris Lytle aren't superstars, but neither of those two are gonna be an easy fight.

    Nick winning wouldn't of been a lock. Serra or Lytle could both possible beat him. Back then Nick was on a 3 fight losing streak to Riggs, Diego, and Sherk. Honestly Serra should have been a favorite.

    He would've lost to Chris Lytle and gone around the house having childish fits about how he didn't lose.

    You said "would've"...indicating
    an implied probability.

    Well, if there is any probability to
    be considered... it'd be that Diaz
    had already beaten Lytle. Not the
    other way around. Your assertion
    is trash, is what I'm saying.

    Their fight was in 2002 and was a split decision.
    Believing the fight could've gone the other way around 4 years later is not a stretch by any means.

    I agree. It's why I "liked"
    the third response to this thread.
    There's just a way to word it.
    The poster I replied to was being
    a baby.

    Anyway I think Serra was a worse match-up for that version of Nick.

    Some tough matchups for Nick with Lytle, Thomas and Serra all in the house as well.

    Would surely have made for some awesome TV without a doubt

    Serra might get goaded into
    a boxing match. I don't think it'd
    end well for him. But Diaz gives
    up a lot of takedowns, so who
    knows. I think Lytle would've
    been trouble. Jackson would've
    been the clear threat to Diaz in
    that season. Clementi would'nt
    have been a pushover either,
    but I think Diaz would've fucked
    him up....

    Yeah, Serra was emotional at times, but if he went for takedowns he would win it, specially in a 2 rounds fight, Serra is very hard to sweep and the chance of Nick subbing him is very low.
    I didn't remember Jackson being on that season at all.

    He was sent home early.
    I forgot he was on too until
    I looked it up to make sure I
    remembered correctly that
    Clementi was on there.

    No way, Serra doesn't have the TD's to where you'd think he'd be able to take Nick down over and over...and Nick had the advantage on the feet...even then. Serra rarely kicked. Nick was longer & bigger too.

    That's a cool quote. Makes sense you should have to earn it to prove your merit. Also Diaz wins that shit because that's what the UFC would have wanted
