    He seems to expect to get things his way. But all he would need to do is beat Matt Brown on a FOX card, get fans clamoring for him, and he would be getting his money and title shot. He really doesn't have to worry about Matt Brown not coming to fight, so what's the holdup?

    Yeah, Diaz is realistically one convincing win away from a title shot. I don't understand why he doesn't just take a fight and earn it.

    He's not far off a title shot still.. I love the guy.. But he needs to win a fight or two or three to earn it.

    Matt Brown is actually the perfect fight for Nick Diaz. Brown won't try any gameplan bullshit and he has a glass body so Nick could easily finish him with body shits.

    What the fuck is with you people and Nick getting title shots?

    How about Nick EARNS a title by stringing some wins together first?

    He'd probably be stripped of his belt anyway due to inactivity because he'd never be interested in defending it.

    Most of them are not familiar with logic.

    I don't know why but "glass body" gets me every time. Just such a funny phrase. Aside from Tito, who had an iron jaw to compensate, I can't really think of anybody who fits the bill.


    Brown is definitely the best fight in the top 10 for Diaz but I don't think it's a sure thing. Nicks been gone a while, Brown is on a tear and both won't take their foot off the gas. I think it's more likely nick hurts brown than vice versa but I think it would be back and forth fight of the night type material.

    Nick is stubborn. And he's rubbed off in a bad way for Nate who doesn't have the million dollar payday to fall back on but is still content to sit on sidelines and lose his prime.

    Because being Matt Brown shouldn't warrant you a title shot.

    It's the UFC though, and he already got one coming off a loss. I wonder when Nick Diaz will have to face a wrestler before getting a title shot

    Hahaha. For anyone who hasn't seen that episode, Randy's pronunciation of vagina is worth the price of admission on its own...as is this song.

    If Brown isnt too afraid of looking uncool to lets bleed morons like you I definitely think he could beat Diaz with some "gameplan bullshit". Diaz is talented but massively overrated. Especially with his long lay-loff.

    If you get hit hard in the body, you drop. No matter who you are. A shot to the liver actually paralyzes your body and a shot to the diaphragm is also crippling.

    You shouldn't get a title shot off Matt Brown.


    Especially when your last fight was an unwarrented title shot.

    Got Damn, Diaz fans need to let him go. He doesn't want to fight but you keep throwing him into fantasy matches.

    Because he can't beat matt brown, Diaz can only beat bums and inflated lightweights

    Even if Diaz beat brown, he still wouldn't deserve a title shot. He's lost back to back fights.

    According to some peoples' logic.

    Matt Brown is untested in the top 10, doesn't deserve a title shot.

    Nick Diaz beating Matt Brown EARNS him a title shot?

    As a converted Diaz Fan, I too am annoyed by this. The man has stated he doesn't like fighting. He asked for $500,000 per fight because it's literally he's ceiling for being able to say no to something he doesn't like to do.

    I would LOVE to see Nick fight again, but only if he wanted to.
