I guess I just don't agree that you earn a title shot in a division that you don't hold a win in by being a company man. Diaz is at least arguably in the top 10 at WW and is a pretty decent draw.

So how about we both agree that you shouldnt get a title fight coming off a loss, unless there was some controversy or you were the champ. :-)
Obviously it's not a big enough fight for Nick. I love watching him fight but he's delusional to a comedic level. Is it ego or dollars that is driving his demands? If it's money, I'd think he's smart enough to know that fighting anybody will pay him more than not fighting at all.
I'm kind of glad he declined the Condit fight. I think it'd be in Carlos' best interests to hold out for a 5 round main event. Few guys can hang with him in terms of durability and endurance. Even if that means headlining a smaller UFN for the time being. He just seems to get better as the fight goes on.
Nick....stay retired. Thanks for the memories. Moving on....

"I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
Man, if that fight didn't interest Nick, then I don't know what will bring him out of retirement. I can't believe he just expects to be handed a title shot. If he beats Condit in the rematch his stock would rise tremendously.
