Paying Diaz ridiculous amounts of money to come back and fight makes no sense because it sets a new precedence for wages that over a short period of time will quickly cost the UFC more then what they would make off of the 1 or maybe 2 fights they might get out of him before he whines and retires again...

I have said it many times before, bringing back Diaz would be a huge mistake and big waste of time and make the organization look bad. I hope to hell they don't do it unless he comes crawling back and fights at his current contract against a middle of the pack opponent like he should be doing...
Sonnen and Kenny both said Nick is worth every penny of what he is asking. So there are at least 2 fairly qualified people who agree with me. In today's MMA getting 300k out of a WW who doesn't even hold a title is gold. No other man could do that or even come close. Rory? Wood? Lombard? Not a chance.
