    i know he has been very open about not wanting to fight unless its Conor but (despite the UFC trying to hide it) the Diaz brothers are 2 of the biggest draws in the conpany. Add the fact that he has just come off of a victory and a FOY candidate with Conor McGregor, he is now a mainstream guy and any fight of his is a big money fight. Its no secret that Conor wont be defending his belts any time soon so why arent any Lightweights or Welterweights calling Nate out? At the end of the day hes a fighter, create enough buzz and piss him off enough and he'll sign that contract

    Khabib got into an actual fight with Nate outside of the cage and Nate still won't sign to fight him in it.

    The first fight, undoubtedly.

    The second however was at worst 3-2 to Conor.

    I was actually there that night.

    Khabib is a pretty small guy.
    Top of his head was at my mouth/chin. Nate is taller than me and at that time, was much larger than Khabib. Khabib would have been hurt that night if they went all out. In the cage though, it would likely go much different at weight.

    All that being said, Khabib hasn't asked to fight Nate since the 2nd Conor fight, because it honestly makes no sense for him.

    Lando vs Nate would be fun.

    As much as I like Nate, most people don't call him out because there is no upside.

    Nate can beat you and will beat you...... for a paycheck, not for rankings positioning.
    But if you beat Nate...it won't put you any closer to a title shot......unless the UFC wants to and already wanted to in which case why bother.

    Same goes for a few other fighters including Cowboy and Ben Henderson just prior to him leaving the UFC. There's no upside to calling them out. Far more risk than reward.

    Nate doesn't want to fight anyone except Conor. Nobody wants to fight Nate because he isn't a PPV draw. Diaz bro's are making it harder and harder to be their fans, because they don't want to fight anyone that they actually should be fighting.

    No it wouldn't. Diaz brothers don't check kicks. Lando fucks him up at distance.

    that one guy called Nick out on here. Maybe he's stabilized on meds now, and ready to take a shot at the younger Diaz.
