    If this happens, we get yet another log jam at WW with three high profile matchups
    I really hope Brown doesnt fight Nate Diaz


    Id rank the matches as follows
    Lombard vs Brown--clear cut #1 contender, especially if one wins by finish
    Lawler vs Berger--essentially only if Lawler wins by a finish, people want Lawler vs Hendricks 2
    Rory vs Woodley--still not sold on Woodley, I dont know how the Condit fight would have turned out if he didnt get injured..also Rory seems to be a point fighter which isnt high on Dana's list of things to do to get a title shot...maybe if he finishes Woodley, he can make a claim at a shot, but not with a decision win.

    Nick vs Brown is a perfect fight for Nick

    He gets to stand and bang (Probably win tbh) then he's right in line for a title shot which the UFC wants to give him because of how much media attention he creates

    He's a fool for not jumping all over this fight

    I wish Diaz would fight already. I don't really like his character but it's about time we saw him fight again. On that note, I wish he would fight Lombard, that would be awesome.

    yeah, it's a really good matchup and it would be a ppv main event or co-main. he'd make good money. probably a performance of the night in it for him too.

    If i take what i think Diaz deserves or doesn't deserve out of the equation, these fights would be great to watch:

    Diaz Vs. Lawler
    Diaz Vs. Hendrix
    Diaz Vs. Brown
    Diaz Vs. Anderson Silva @ 185
    Diaz Vs. Vitor Belfort @ 185
    Diaz Vs. Michael Bisping @ 185
    Diaz Vs. Lombard

    1) If RoryMac-Woodley goes to decision, winner then gets winner of Lawler-Jake for next title shot.
    2) If RoryMac-Woodley has a finish, winner gets next title shot.
    3) Brown-Lombard makes sense; loser gets Condit, while winner fights for #1 contender spot.

    Diaz only needs to beat a couple people to be back in title contention... And brown out of everyone would be his "easiest" fight imo. Then if he beats say Lombard or lawler again he's right there.

    Nice list

    1-Anderson @185 or catch is the only one that is a money maker

    And why should Diaz fight Brown after 2 straight losses (vs 7-fight win streak)?

    "cause he's a draw"?

    Fuck that. If any, he should be begging for a spot back in the UFC. Go back to the line and fight Eric Silva or Gunnar-LaFlare loser. THAT's what makes sense.

    Diaz/Lawler 2 for the title shot, the first fight was great. Lotsa good fights for Diaz if he decides to fight again.
