There seems to a be a line forming of fighters that want to welcome Nick Diaz back to the Octagon when he's eligible to return in 2013.

If he beats Penn that would be a good match up to make.

Rory could add "Double Diaz Demolition" to his resume.



And yes, I have no doubt the Av bet proposals will come pouring in for this one.

Nick Diaz isn't a blown up 155er.

i agree with this. rory earned himself the Penn fight and if he mauls Penn, he really does deserve tougher competition.

After Penn I wouldn't mind this but I'd rather see him fight Condit again. I think he'd win all of those fights honestly.

MacDonald's in a good place if he wins (which I think he will), because there's several fights that make sense for him.

Maia/Fitch winner
Ellenberger
Pierce
Swick
Brown
Noke
Baczynski (a bit of a stretch, but he's huge and young and coming off a W)

I'm taking Diaz off the list because, while I think it'd be a good fight, a MacDonald win would knock Diaz off the contender's list for a long time, for a guy who reportedly won't fight the current champion. It's not the best move for the division. There's also the fact that Diaz is coming off a loss. They don't usually get matched up with a recent winner unless there's a compelling reason - Jones vs Sonnen in TUF, for instance (and that whole situation is controversial).

Similar reasons for Condit. Eventually I'd like to see them rematch, and I think it'll happen since they're both young and good enough to win at around the same time. Give them a full 5, put it on the main event of an FX/Fuel card in Canada. It'll get people in the seats.
