Riv is so old, Father Time loses the fight to him.

All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.

Hopefully Nick can come out of retirement and fight in the UFC. In the octagon, he's thrilling to watch and puts on great fights win or lose. His antics while fighting (taunting, etc) I could do without, and his attitude portrayed to the MMA universe isn't my favorite, but with GSP out, the Welterweight division could use him.

And you broke the first rule of Fight Club.
While I really despise how the Diaz brothers carry themselves, there's big money fights with Nick in the UFC regardless of his record, kinda like a shoot-version of Sonnen's gimmick.
IMO, Lawler/Diaz II just has money written all over it, book that for a five rounder on FOX main event card and you'll probably get a FOTY. I also think they could build one helluva fight between Diaz and Rory with pre-fight smack talk to really build Rory up, but again, if Nick's only after titles, then they're quite limited.
I also think that while Nick has pretty shoddy TDD, his cardio could very well drain Hendricks, were they ever to be matched up.
I wouldn't want to do business with him, but there given the loss of GSP(and Condit at WW) and Anderson for the foreseeable future, as a business, Diaz "moves the needle". Matches against Lawler II, Lombard and Rory all seem like good main or co-mains and his style is exciting. I'd just avoid booking him and Woodley AT ALL COSTS.
