And I personally thing anyone on the planet holding at UFC title at that moment in time is a household name in MMA. Matt Serra was everywhere in the MMA world for KOing GSP. He might not be a household name now but by the same logic, neither is Royce Gracie. Demetrious Johnson would probably be the least popular current UFC Champion, but if he hadn't lost to Dominic Cruz, and wanted to move up and fight himm I'd consider that to be a big champion Vs champion super fight.
Maybe my understanding of householding is different, then. I believe, although Nick is an average good fighter, his attitude is so unique (in a really bad way, unfortunately) he can only be the household of himself, really. I can't see him as a household name for UFC or even in MMA in general for the same uniqueness. It could be my own perception of the term, I give you that.

Nick would have to put on one amazing MMA clinic in order to be considered a legitimate opponent for Silva (he still hasn't proven he's a legitimate opponent for GSP yet.)

That said, it would be cool to watch Anderson give Nick a proctology exam with Nick's own middle finger.

You should try reading the OP instead of just the title before posting, would make your posts a lot more relevant

It's some what a fantasy of mine to see Nick Diaz boxing Anderson silly up against the cage. Nick Diaz beating up GSP and then beating up Anderson Silva back to back would for me, be the most amazing feat in MMA history. It would flip the MMA scene upside down, GSP and Andy fans would be jumping off buildings all over the world, this forum and many other online MMA communities would shut down due to members simply losing their minds:

Grapple: That was pretty funny, got a laugh out of that. I think almost any MMA fan would feel the same, it would be a complete upset of massive proportions.

That being said, Diaz will not be getting past GSP. Recently, someone posted the MMA weekly video with Bas and Diaz. Nick said himself if anyone was deserving or had a beating coming his way it was him.

Deep down inside Nick knows GSP is that good, but I still think he's going to taunt and fluster Georges to get him off his game.

Even if Nick has the fight of his life, equally GSP would have to have one of the worst of his career to lose the title.

Nick will never, ever, beat GSP. Not even in chess.

and if he did win, no... he does not deserve to fight Anderson. Maybe after he clears out his division as GSP has done.

I think you just answered why Nick has won fights as of late.

But isn't being a world champion in the UFC enough to warrent a fight against one other person?

It all depends on the method of victory. If Diaz manages to beat GSP up for five rounds or even get a stoppage, there is no doubt he deserves to challenge himself against Anderson Silva. If Nick squeaks out a controversial decision (highly, highly unlikely given his track record) then he probably doesn't and a rematch with GSP will take place.

But again, this is the UFC, and as I've said many times in the past, in this organisation deserves' simply got nothing to do with it.

Why are people asking me if I think Diaz could win? I'm only asking if you think Diaz would be worthy of a title shot if he was the Welterweight Champion after beating one of the greatest of all time in GSP.

Also, I'd say Welterweight Championship Vs Middleweight Championship is a super fight.
You still haven't answered why you think that would be a good fight instead of a legalized homicide. At least with GSP even with the size difference he'd threaten Silva with his wrestling which apparently is the only small chink in his armor.

WTF will Nick do to Silva? Take him down? Please... Outstrike Silva? LOL. He doesn't even have the 1 punch knock out to even win it by a fluke. His boxing is also EXTREMELY OVERRATED, it's effective because of his range and cardio.

He will not have the range advantage, his defensive boxing is TERRIBLE so Silva will pepper him with strikes while clowning around, in fact he'll get embarrassed even more than Forrest did because at least Forrest had size and random strike could have put Silva in trouble.

So why should there be a super fight where Nick will get absolutely destroyed? Seriously, instead of dodging the question answer why you feel that would be a good fight. Your logic regarding champ vs champ makes no sense. So what? All champs should fight each other in a catch weight? UFC makes fight based on what they feel will be exciting, Nick vs Silva will be anything but that.
