    haha, folks are hating on this, but Tyron is VERY smart.

    The Diaz brothers are at this moment two of THE most popular fighters of all time.

    Fans, even CASUALS, know who Diaz is.

    This is the MONEY fight, much like McGregor vs Nate is.

    And the bonus? Nick very well could FINALLY be UFC welterweight champion. :D

    With all these money fights being thrown around nowadays, it really just makes you stop and think about Chad mendes and Alanis morrisette

    If I were Woodley, I'd call out Nick and see if it sticks. Worth a try.

    Well I know that Nick will not accept the fight at UFC 202 so if it does go down itll be on another card, but I do agree with you. Fighters are starting to realize that the Diaz Bros. are legit cash cows, even though the UFC is still trying their hardest to downplay Nate's win.

    Diaz won't take it because he's been smoking, and you think he'll risk getting another longer term suspension?

    P.S. Nobody even knows who Woodley is.

    I wonder if they could do Diaz vs. Lawler 2 and then Wonderboy vs. Woodley. If Diaz and Wonderboy win that sets up a huge fight. I think Wonderboy could be the American GSP. It usually takes these super high level but somewhat clean cut and safe on the mic champs a really intense rival to turn them into stars. Nick could do that in Wonderboy's very first defense. It would be awesome.

    Diaz isn't coming back to fight a wrestler. It's why he's talked about leaving the spot since being in the UFC.

    If anything, the Lawler fight is far more appealing to Nick.

    salt on what? im pointing the obvious. i dont have a dog on this fight

    the only salt is with the UFC matchmaking

    besides that, im discussing undeserved tittle shots. you briging up who is the better fighter has 0 relevance, but nice straw man you tried to create there.

    Bet ya a title fight makes him forgot about that. Cause title fights = Dolla bills. If the UFC offers it too him, i'd wager he takes it.

    Most champs time at the top is so short, I understand the desire to make the good money while they can. I really don't have a problem with him calling out whoever he wants, but I still think match-makers owe it to the fans to have him fight Wonderboy.

    Well if he keeps getting undeserved title shots EVENTUALLY one of his opponents are going to slip on a banana peel on the way to the cage or something. It's called the "infinite monkey Diaz theorem".

    Diaz would come running for a title fight or a high-profile fight with lawler.
