Penn/Diaz for me. I've been talking about wanting to see these 2 fight for years.

Everything about this fight will be awesome.

Penn/Diaz, only b/c GSP isn't that exciting anymore to me.

Make it a threesome


GSP would have just taken Diaz down and more than likely rode out a decision. Penn/Diaz has the better chance of a stand up war.

I'd have to say Penn-Diaz because they match up better. Both are Legit Black-belts, both have solid Boxing skills with Diaz having the reach and B.J. having the speed. This is gonna be FOTN

Same here. BJ also has the wrestling while Diaz has the cardio. The fact that this will likely be exclusively stand-up, BJ's cardio shouldn't be tested. And in the event that Diaz gets the better of the standup, BJ has an out. Even if it ends up on the ground it should be exciting. It will probably go the distance since both guys have great chins. Given the circumstances, this was the best fight to be made, IMO.

Me too, but I really like both BJ and Carlos, so I don't mind as much that they don't have to fight each other. I'm rooting for BJ and Carlos all the way, which, ironically, could cause them to be matched up in their next fight.

Add both of these fights to a growing list of UFC fights I have a woody for.

In the coming months, I'm looking forward to:

Nate Diaz vs. Takanori Gomi
Joe Lauzon vs. Melvin Guillard
Rampage vs. Jon Jones
Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos
Chael Sonnen vs. Brian Stann
Anthony Pettis vs. Jeremy Stephens
Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem
Nick Diaz vs. BJ Penn
Carlos Condit vs. Georges St. Pierre
Ben Henderson vs. Clay Guida
Jose Aldo vs. Kenny Florian

And that's just off the top of my head. Now is a reaaaaally great time to be a UFC fan.

Im more excited to see the trash talk between Diaz and Penn, you knwo that is gonna get pretty interesting.

I also voted Penn/Diaz, IMO this fight is going to sell to more fans then the title.
