    No, what I'm saying is that if, say, Takanori Gomi or Josh Thomson called out Diaz, it would be seized upon by those types of outlets because a certain caliber of grudge match does intrigue people. But Yunker is not going to make a splash by criticizing a Nick Diaz TKO win from a couple months ago. All he has accomplished is letting the media literate fans and industry people reading the forums know that he wants a big fight and sees Diaz as an opportune target. But it doesn't help raise his stature or convince the people in charge that he is a compelling opponent for Nick. What he really needs an impressive, visible win or two to shake off his losing streak. Beating Clay Guida a couple of years ago is nice, but ask Yosuke Endo if thats done anything big for his career lately

    Relax, I didn't mean on a personal level. What I'm saying is, Yunker kicking the door with these comments isn't going to impress anyone who needs impressing. Sure, it'll be discussed here and on the UG, if ever so briefly, but its unlikely any popular bloggers, let alone anything resembling a mainstream media outlet, is going to pick up on this and spend any time examining it. The only people Yunker is going to stir up are the people who already had his back in the first place.

    If I'm Yunker, I'm wondering what the hell I'm paying my manager for if I have to go and plant these kind of comments with whatever little mma blog will take them. Instead of throwing Diaz under the bus in hopes of being granted a pseudo-grudge match, he should be in a position where he only needs to continue beating quality opposition to get his opportunity at a big fight

    I'd like to see this fight go down. I might be in the minority, but I enjoyed the Diaz v Denny. It may be due to the fact I've always had a soft spot for Denny.

    At any rate, Yunker is just tryin to get his name out there and callin out one of the Diaz boys will help do that. Especially when both of them, especially Nick, are more than willing to talk shit with pretty much anyone around.

    I prefer Nate to Nick, but I always enjoy watching either brother throw down.
