Same. Matt Brown should be on the poll instead of Diaz.

woodley. it was a shitty way for his fight with condit to end, with the knee blowout and all, but woodley was doing great in the standup and wrestling. I would like to see him throwdown with hendricks. either that or lombard. lombard and lawlor would be a great stand up war too

I voted for Woodly his fight didn't end the anyone wanted but he looked good up till when Condit's knee blew out.

But Hector would be a good choice to his fight with Shields was one sided. Anyone who has watched a Shields fight knows it's very hard to put on an entertaining fight against him. Both these guys should get a shot before Rory who is 1-1 in his last two.

Lombard or Woodley for me. Preferably Woodley. People saying no one deserves a title shot so they should give it to Diaz are crazy and part of the problem imo.

I agree with everyone so far. Woodley or Lombard, but I would prefer Woodley first. A fight between the two for the next shot would be an awesome fight, but I'd hate to see one of them lose so close to a shot.

I would prefer to see Hendricks vs Lombard over Hendricks vs Woodley to be completely honest.

Anyone saying they dont want to see Hendricks vs Diaz are crazy in my eyes. I would be all for watching those two throw down.

Nick is the type of fighter I will always be interested in seeing fight and Diaz vs Hendricks would sell huge and lets face it to the UFC sales matter

It's not that people don't want to see the fight. Everyone wants to see that fight. The point is Nick is on a 2 fight losing streak, hasn't won since 2011, has retired twice now and hasn't beaten anyone even remotely close to the top 10. In fact, his only ufc win since 2005 is against a guy that's about to fight at Featherweight. He needs to earn a shot if he wants it. Using his fists, not his mouth. If there was no title on the line I'd be all for this fight.

Exactly
I like a woodley vs Lombard fight for top contender but since everyone fouht the same night that would take a while. I'm fine with either getting the shot, but between the two woodley has a slightly better resume

I think Rory is at least 1 win away, hopefully 2 away from a shot. The reason I push Woodley over Lombard is because he just beat the guy who everyone picked to get the next shot. Dude was ranked #2 and Woodley dominated him.

Diaz.

Why hold a man back from achieving his goal of being runner-up in the pound for pound rankings? Lol jk. Whether you want to admit it or not, we all love a little Nick Diaz pre-fight smack talk.

Two fight win streak.
Throw that out.
I don't think Woodley gets it yet. One more fight
Either vs Diaz or Lombard for next title shot.


Have Hendricks face McDonald in June Vancouver
Canada may never see another Canadian in a title match
With the name not being st Pierre for a long time.
Unless Alexis Davis gets a shot.

Save the brazilians
Aldo and barao for July Aug ppv
