Nick would get beaten up by GSP, Fitch, Shields, Koscheck, Penn, Alves, Hughes, Kampmann, Condit, Stun Gun, Story, Hardy and he's already lost to Sanchez. He would not be in the top tier of the UFC's WW division, and he knows it, which is precisely why he signed a new 4 fight deal with Strikeforce.
This plus Lytle, Ellenberger, and a healthy Swick. I wouldn't say it is out of the question that several guys below them like Volkmann and MacDonald could beat him also.
