I vote DIAZ vs BJ at 137

BJ is now out of a fight due to ufcs rash decision(imo)and so is DIAZ. I say if DIAZ still wants to fight and BJs up for it make this happen! The card will then still have 2 great fights !

hmm great fight but I doubt Dana will want to give Diaz a big name fight for a while.

BJ vs Fitch II. That 3rd round left some questions to be answered about this match up.

How about Nick Diaz vs nobody? After this shit I don't even want to waste any of the UFC top WW's time with him even though they would all beat him. BJ vs Fitch is the logical fight now.

BJ Vs Diaz, whilst imo isn't as good as BJ vs Condit, is the only fight that can 'save' the destruction of the Penn Condit fight.

I agree with Diaz being punished for cutting contact and basically flipping Dana off rather than dealing with the issue at hand and explaining his reasons. I hate the fact that it's basically slapped Penn in the face as well, and he deserves to beat Diaz around the cage for putting him through that

How is this a RASH decision? You defenders can harp about how Diaz is a "fighter-w/e the hell that means" or that he may or may not have a mental disorder etc... Which has nothing to do with the UFC. Seriously, this ain't some bar fight where a dude pays a guy 50$ to put on a show. This is the UFC who is trying their hardest to finally get acknowledge as a real sport and not a circus act.

Real sports have professional athletes, a pro is some who makes a living being exactly that a pro. They don't have to like it but still have to suck up and do their job. This isn't like a movie star who refuses to do the circus tour, the movie business has been around forever and can do without a cry baby.

In light of the recent Fox deal the media will be looking at the UFC for standards and any kind of negative publicity will set this sport back another 10 years. Even now with the hasty PR move (of shifting the blame to Nick) the damage has been done. They cannot afford to look like a bunch of amateurs. No matter how talented Nick is, he's nothing towards the greater goal of growing the MMA sport.

As for those who complain that it was just a "press conf". Let's not even debate how it's unfair for GSP to cut his training to do this PR stuff. It's about the fact that the dude is UNRELIABLE. How can you guarantee with a certainty that he will show up to a fight? What that he's never missed a fight before? That enough of a guarantee given his actions in the last few days? Can you really blame DW from dumping him on the card? Can you even imagine the kind of damage that would result from him NOT showing up at the fight? Lastly, I hate these pricks that feel this sense of entitlement on what they do for a living. Seriously, they make money doing something they love and yet have the temerity to whine about an aspect of their job. Nick is precisely the type of fighter that needs to get kicked the hell out to a min wage job. That's the kind of message that needs to be sent to the next gen of fighters who'll realize how lucky they are to be part of the sport. Lastly, if he's really mentally unstable then he still should be kicked out. Would any other professional be allowed to keep their job with a serious mental condition? A cop? Firefighter? Doctor? Seriously don't even defend that shit.

It would be a good fight, but I have my doubts they will reward Diaz with a fight with BJ for doing what he did.

Nor should he be rewarded. I'd like to see this fight but I think its too soon for Diaz to get a big name WW. Especially when he has no sympathy for destroying his fight with GSP. I would like to see BJ Penn vs. Josh Koscheck!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
