Although I agree with everyone that Maynard can't beat bj, but I would think that Maynard is the favourite over nate.

Maynard might not be that exciting but he is def a good fighter. If Guida can take nate down and keep him there I have to believe Maynard can do the same. And I don't think he'll get caught in a submission like he did in tuf.

My point is, yes, Aoki is a solid fighter and yes, it would be interesting, but at the same time there are guys in the UFC right now who pose more of a threat to BJ than Aoki does, so why go all the way to Japan to pick up Aoki when he poses a smaller threat than many guys in the UFC LW division?


I may be wrong here but I think its clear that I made the point that NO ONE is a threat to BJ at this time. it should go something like Edgar, Maynard and than Florian II. I also stated that I have a hard time making a case for any fighter to remotely challenge at 155. After he clears out the UFC LW's I think it would be nice to have the #2 and 3 fighters added to the list of fighters BJ cleared out.

***EDIT*** Sorry for the repetitive slur above, I have been up for far too long and see no sleep insight. I do think you can get my point though.

I would have to agree with you on these statements.

I don't see how Maynard should get a shot at the title if he beats Nate Diaz. I think he should face KenFlo or Diego Sanchez prior to getting a title shot. Although they both lost to BJ, they are still top fighters at 155.

Just my opinion.
