stole this idea from a friend:

if KJ Noons makes it to the UFC, I'd really like to see him fight Nate Diaz

That's not a bad call at all, although I don't know that the UFC brass would deem Noons ready without a pretty big win in the octagon first.

True.

In a position like Nate's in right now, coming off of a loss, I think it would be cool with joe to set it up.

all they have to do is get Noons to talk shit. something like, "i already beat the tougher Diaz, Nate wouldnt even be much of a fight." BAM! there's your fight.

Nate's subs are better. Nick's stand-up is better.

Nick can't finish people on the ground like Nate can.

i would normally say that nick is the better fighter because he's been there done that, but we havent seen him fight for a year, his title was in SF not ufc, and both brothers have failed pretty much at the same level in the ufc. i know nick hasnt fought GSP, but the loss to condit WAS for a title. i think they are pretty comparable now days, and neither has held a ufc title.

Entertaining fight.

But all I could think while watching was "No way does Diaz beat GSP with his strikes".

which then lead to this...
