Well a title shot would at minimum require him winning the fight vs Anderson

Lolz Exactly



I do think Anderson would win. But, I also think Nick would put up a pretty good fight for the first round


ALSO though, if Nick tries to come into a fight with Anderson NOT in the best shape he has ever been in then I do think he will lose in under 3 minutes

Lets see how this goes, Diaz/Silva fight, Diaz loses, Diaz complains about something, says he doesnt need this shit, retires for another few years says its title shot or bust.

We've been here before

Maybe I'm one of the few but I actually think Nick could win that fight. He wouldn't let Anderson get away with the antics he usually does and I think Nick could actually get in Anderson's head. Nick's style of pressure boxing, pace and cardio, I think could wear the older fighter out unless Anderson is able to finish it in the first round, but Nick has only been TKO'd once in his career, really early on..I don't consider the Noons fight because it was a cut that stopped it, Nick was fine and would have fought on.

I hope the fight gets made because it would be an incredible one. And Nick's last four fights would be insane if Anderson is booked next. BJ Penn, Carlos Condit, GSP, Anderson...that's one hell of a resume.

Nick lands a ton of jabs on guys that stand in front of him and let him. Anderson's head movement and footwork is too good. I think Anderson counter punches and TKOs himin the 2nd or 3rd

Anderson should wreck nick if he comes back anywhere near as good as he was before Weidman happened to him.
