I'd much rather it be nick. Sure it would be a fun fight but I don't get as excited when Nate is giving up 15 pounds. He has plenty of great options at his actual weight class.
Still I like his enthusiasm.

I just want Brown to fight a top 5 opponent so all his naysayers can get silenced. Its like as long as he doesn't beat someone in the arbitrary UFC top 5 everything he does is enormously discounted.

Also, Nate is the wrong weight class.

I agree with this but the bigger issue is Nick is retired. So for Brown to call for Nick it's only right for Nate to step up and try and get this fight. I do think this would be a pretty sick fight but Brown has done enough to get either Hendricks/ Lombard/or even Condit.

With all the injuries and all the fighters busy in the division their aren't too many other options. Lombard is probably the best for now, however taking the loser of Rory/Woodley or the winner of Ellenberger/Lawler would be a fair back up plan. Nate won't do anything for him, but I got to say it would be a fun fight while it lasted.

Both Diaz bro's would beat that ass....Matt Brown has way too many holes in his game for them to exploit.

Beating Nate won't put him any closer to a title fight at WW.

With his win streak, his next opponent has to be someone who would give him a title shot with a win. Nate isn't one of them.

Nick is retired and will only fight for the title. Nate is a LW and beating him won't get Matt Brown any closer to a title shot.

Brown will be fighting Lombard, he's the only one available at the moment.

Nice gesture I guess but Nate doesn't deserve Brown and Brown deserves better. Nick would suffice in a match for Brown if he were willing, but he isn't. Lombard vs Brown is the fight to make.

I think Nick Diaz would eat Matt Brown with the Body Shot attack. Though, it should be clear only one of the two is a better wrestler than GSP.

I don't like the fight for Nate. Should be fun if it happens though.

I was kind of hoping for a DHK rematch. But I think the UFC knows that is too dangerous. They are putting a lot behind Brown even though he hasn't beaten anyone in the top ten yet. Diaz doesn't make sense to me. Lombard does, but Lombard might eat him whole.
