    Diaz needs to get some wins under his belt in a lesser organization(s), if he does that then fine bring him back. But I think Robbie Lawler needs to be brought back, he's entertaining as hell, and since he lost to Diaz and then Tanner, he has won 3 straight away from the UFC, I hope they give him another chance.

    I was actually suprised UFC brought Diaz back so quickly after the Riggs fight considering, from various reports, Diaz sucker punched Riggs because he felt that he should have won the fight. Grow up, be professional, and don't let it go to the judges. Here's hoping that Diaz gets he=is head screwed on straight, and has a long successful carreer, but not as successful as Lawler.

    Actually I nick named him the prick.Nick"The Dick'Diaz is kind of mean.I thought it would've been kind of messed up Nick talking all that shit about TUF guys(when he had his fight with Diego)and than being on the show.

    It would be the same as getting fired from any other job and having to re-interview with that firm (except the interview would last a month or however long the actual filming of the show lasts) and prove you are worthy of the position that the firm felt you were not worthy of the first time around othat would be disscouraging and really suck IMO.

    Plus the whole mentality he carries and him calling out Diego and claiming the TUF winners are not worthy of the big payday and feel hatred towards those fighters, not the best mindset to have.

    it does not bother me that he is gone but I did enjoy some of his fights and was pulling for him to rape Diego but quite the opposite happened.

    I would like to see Lawler return, he is a great undercard worthy of PPV's.

    I don't know if Dana will give him what he wants right away because of the Big Pride/UFC superbrawl next year. If it is really going to happen. I think Dana will do what he can to load his belt holders.

As for Diaz, I agree with what most people are saying, he has some really great skill that he needs to figure out how to utilize best. Keeping his pride in check would definately be a good start. I'd like to see him fight Karo again, I thought the first fight between them could have gone either way.

    Sherk will have that belt as long as Ricco had his because Penn is cutting weight and coming for it. So he better get ready to give it up as soon as he puts it on.

    155? So we can watch more awkard fights from Diaz much akin to the Sherk fight? Diaz is in the only weight class that he can compete in. His problem, which I dont know if he'll solve, is his personality. He's a punk. He's too arrogant to use his strengths and he thinks he has a standup game because of a lucky punch on Lawler. I hope the UFC doesnt bother with him until he secures at least 3 more wins elsewhere. Maybe after fighting in some smaller shows, he'll adjust his attitude and appreciate his time in the UFC and actually show up to fight instead of grabbing legs for three rounds.
