    Via MMAfighting.com. I find this hilarious, I wish it would've happened.

    Your guys' thoughts?

    I think it's nuts that Nate is getting any top 10 fights at the current juncture in his career. He's has not earned those in his current run. Let the Diaz fanboys reign down terror for me saying this...

    Henderson is the better fight for him, for us Diaz would have been more fun to watch

    I would've loved to see all the leg kicks in that fight.

    Nate would be unable to walk after the 2nd.

    The Diaz fight would have been pretty cool, but that would have been at 155 and I guess Alves doesn't want to go down there just yet and fight a fighter like that who has good cardio.

    Diaz vs Alves would've been cool .....Diaz isn't competitive with any top fighter at this point IMO
