    Poll was on mmafighting.

    Why do people want to see this fight? Nate isn't even ranked in the top 5, too lazy to diet and misses weight by 4 pounds then gets beat up by RDA for 3 rounds.

    He won't even have any time to have a trash talking war with Conor since the fight is in less than 2 weeks...



    Who would you most like to see fight Conor McGregor at UFC 196?

    RDA beat down Pettis for five and finished Cerrone in a minute, if not any of them three then who? I wouldn't mind Khabib or Ferguson, but Nate definitely makes sense.

    I don't get the love for Diaz. Maybe it's because I'm older than some here. I'm not a fan of the wannabe thug image. I could never see him or his brother fight or "speak" again and I'd be happy.
    That said, I'd like to see Cerrone get his chance.

    Nate gets my vote. The only problem is whether or not he can pass the pot test.

    Id hate to see Nate get suspended

    How does Nate getting the fight make sense when Pettis, Alvarez, Ferguson, and Khabib are all stepping up to fight and are all ranked ahead of him?

    I believe it came out afterward that Diaz was actually hurt before his fight with RDA, and in true Diaz fashion he didn't pull out of the fight (I never remember either Diaz pulling out of a fight due to injury)

    I want a Siver rematch. The first one could have gone either way.

    I want to see him fight Khabib true champ. That's the one fight where an interim belt would make sense even if you're a purist (kind of).

    Cerrone shouldn't even be an option

    Got smoked by RDA in a minute, smoked by Pettis in a minute, and Diaz beat him up for 3 rounds

    Ferguson, Pettis, or Diaz

    I don't want to see anybody else really

    True champ? The guy would of been stripped by now cuz of the inactivity

    UFC cant risk such and injury prone fighter becoming champion. He needs to come back and prove he can stay healthy enough to fight a couple ties a year. I cant even remember the last time he fought

    "wannabe" because the diaz brothers are known for being fake. after all, stockton is a very well off area

    Khabib is true champion bro. Conor is ducking him.

    Had they put Khabib on that list instead of " other " then I'm sure the results would differ. Regardless, this is supposed to be a sport, not a popularity contest

    Two weeks is plenty enough to get hyped. It will be non stop. The weigh ins would be insane. And they'd be talking shit in the cage still.

    Also, both are pretty much boxers with great chins. Conor has better kicks Nate has better BJJ. It'd make for a fantastic war.

    Nate isn't ranked in the top 5 but he's still better than Cerrone.

    Honestly I just think it'd be the most exciting fight, with the best hype due to trash talk.

    It sure would be nice to Benson Henderson around right about now.
