Nate said he's on top now. Can only think of a couple options here.

I want no part of RDA Diaz II.

Diaz vs Diaz, but never happening.

Hellooo Robbie.

Don't want to see Diaz vs RDA again either, I think Robbie beats Nate down bad.

I agree with you on this one prozac.

I didn't vote. I like Nate and respect that he beat Conor and I wouldn't be upset if he got Lawlor but there's too many other actual WW contenders ahead of him. Thompson/MacDonald winner, Woodley, Maia. And I don't want an RDA rematch. He lost to him handily and there's people that deserve it more than him.

At WW I like Condit vs Diaz

At LW I like Alvarez or Ferguson (if Ferguson loses to Khabib)

I just can't see any needing Diaz for a title except Diaz, in the WW Div let's not forget he just be a FW...that is not what those previously mentioned have been doing. Diaz is an awesome dude and obviously a great fighter too but that doesn't mean you should skip everyone. I do think these new paychecks should continue though (I know the UFC can afford it).

I voted RDA because Nate technically beat the #1 LW contender and Nate hasn't fought at 170 for a while so fighting Robbie is out of the question and lastly, the Diaz bros would never fight each other, EVER! So that was a waste of a poll option.

I don't think the UFC makes any other fight other than Alvarez.

Definitely not Lawler. Nate did not fair too well during his short stint at Welterweight the first time and beating the Featherweight champ who didn't cut weight and weighed in at 168 pounds shouldn't allow him to cut in front of guys like Thompson/MacDonald/Condit or even Woodley.

I went with RDA (although that probably wouldn't be my first choice). With his new found fame he could bring some much needed attention to the 155 belt. McGregor was about to do that but unfortunately RDA injured himself. Diaz/RDA will bring in more viewers than it would have a month ago so that sounds ok to me.

My first choice would be Anthony Pettis (after the Barboza fight) though. Those two have a history and the matchup is a very compelling one stylistically. That fight could be a headliner for a massive FOX card. Which would be beneficial to everyone involved. I hope that's the direction they choose to go but there are certainly a lot of interesting matchups to consider.

Nate doesn't deserve a title shot at either weight, he hasn't really beat anyone still. Eddie Alvarez is a great suggestion though.

So I vote Nick so that this toon can be made real:
