Diaz is coming off a loss, then a suspension. I don't see how he is anywhere near #1 contendership.
He lost a close fight to Condit... many thought he actually won...
Dont see why he "isnt anywhere near #1 contendership"
More deserving than Hendricks? no, but Diaz's saleability will only help him get a shot somewhere down the line.
And Nick is right on cue........
Put Nick Diaz vs Johnny Hendricks and Weidman vs Bisping on the GSP vs Silva card. Winners get next title shots.
I want to see GSP fight Hendricks and Diaz. Hendricks deserves a shot and I am sure Diaz will get his sometime after.
Weidman shouldn't have to fight anyone else either.

If anyone believes Nick Diaz should be in a #1 contenders match, that is degrading the sport yall claim to love and want to protect.
Don't think anyone is arguing that he deserves it more then Hendricks, but if GSP fights Silva and the UFC wants Hendricks to stay busy, a fight with Diaz makes the most sense.
