    I think he's a great fighter and worthy of his praise but as far as the casuals go what is it about Nick that makes them buy? He doesn't come too heavy with the trash talk anymore, and when I speak to people about mma hardly anyone knows who he is.

    Cause he is. He's one of the few who people want to see with or w/o the belt.

    Well, you're British, and British people don't pay for the PPVs, so it really doesn't matter what they think...

    He's a legend who has been around forever, has a huge fanbase..

    He's half white, so it's white privilege.

    Because he's super entertaining and does unpredictably crazy shit like laying down in the Octagon, and predictable shit like talking smack to his opponent and always moving forward.

    Because it's Nick Diaz. He's already a money fight as is, and in this case it would be his return fight after being out for around 2 years. People are going to watch that shit

    Hes never been a draw, only his fans think so... The real reason why Woodley wants Nick because he think he can beat him and ufc 202 is going to do well because of Conor and champion gets ppv points.

    If Diaz gets the Woodley fight, I'm protesting and blocking the roads.

    UFC 183 did 600,000+ buys. That's about as many as 198 and 199 combined. He's a draw.

    Woodley calling out Diaz is the easiest fight for the most amount of money. Last win was BJ Penn lol.
