So many good matches for him even if he doesn't care about the title anymore.

Lawler rematch
Brown
Silva
Rory Mac.

Glad he is back

Maybe he will knock some sense into his bro to sign


problem is Nate is already under contract. Has 3 fights left. I don't see Dana renegotiating his contract doesn't think Nate moves "the pen". Hopefully he just comes to his senses.

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

For some reason I don't expect a big fight first. At least contender wise. I don't think their is any doubt he'll fight Silva early next year but I don't think the UFC will keep their new toy on the shelf that long.

I have a feeling hell fight the loser of Brown/Lawler or even take a step a middleweight right away against Bisping, I just think they would give him a winnable fight before throwing him in with Silva.

Watching Nick Diaz try and stand with Anderson Silva is only like a comic book fight I have created in my head. He will be a human bongo set. I will eat popcorn.

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



Nate is still under contract, he's trying to re-negotiate and the UFC doesn't want to, I think that's the issue with him. Hopefully he just signs a fight soon and wins, then he can re-negotiate all he wants.

PS - I'm very happy to see Nick back as well.

Agreed, do you think Andy could finish him on the feet? Nick has one helluva chin

They made him sign a 8 fight deal to be able to fight for the title so should be 5 left?
