I should care but I don't and just adds to my distaste towards the UFC.

Yay!
Day just got 100X better.
Also, I'm pretty certain if they can sign Nick, they'll sign Nate too

I'd set up the fight with Anderson first before he throws another tantrum and retires. The guy doesn't deserve a #1 contender fight IMO.

Be expecting Diaz to get another title shot after this next win.

No secret at all that if both are healthy Nick & Andy will be fighting on the super bowl card next year

Glad he is back

Maybe he will knock some sense into his bro to sign

Silva is probably the worst match up I can think of for Nick! Stick to welterweight

I would actually look forward to Silva whooping that ass

Anderson is the route I hope they take.

Would you elaborate?
Personally, I don't see how the Nick Diaz coming back to the UFC is a distasteful scenario, but I'm interested to know why you think that.

Like others have said, I'd love to see Silva and Diaz throw down.
