    I'd watch Cung Le vs. Machida at 185 gladly.
    And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
    And the microphone smells like a beer

    That would be a really fun fight.

    Kicks galore.

    I'd much rather prefer any combination of Vitor/Machida/Mousasi at MW or a CW, but I see Nick getting frustrated, talking shit to Machida and getting ghosted while trying to bait him into an exchange.

    There are some really great fights for Diaz at WW, the Rory one RD brought up is an excellent example and I'd throw in Robbie Lawler II, Kampmann and maybe even Alves(cuz he'll stand with Nick) as really exciting fights, that just feel more entertaining than Nick at MW, especially since his TDD is so poor and he'll be that much more undersized.

    Watch his Fight with Rashad again he deals with the taunts just fine. Love to see him repeat that against Diaz

    Tito taunted the hell out of him and he simply stuck to his gameplan.

    I would rather see:
    - Mousasi fight Shogun.
    - DC Vs Phil Davis
    - Machida vs Glover
    - Lil Nog vs Goose
    - Vera get his rematch with Thiago Silva

    If Nick Diaz uninterested, UFC's Tim Kennedy says he'll fight Lyoto Machida

    Of course Tim Kennedy isn't scared.
