    Makes sense. Nothing says "legend" like challenging a guy outside the top 3 of the weight class beneath yours. ''

    Every interview Tyron does makes me dislike him more.

    What about Joffrey? He was by far the most likeable Lannister!

    Man I'd love to see Nate vs TFerg. Is Nick still suspended? A 209 card would be bitchin.

    Nate Diaz vs Tyron Woodley title fight being discussed for UFC 219

    Man, I'm all for watching exciting fighters fight. But to have a guy who isn't ranked in a division, and who lost his last fight in that division, move up and fight for the title. I understand that Woodley is stuck for the moment while things clear out but this doesn't seem to me the best course of action.

    If Nate found a way to beat Woodley, the inevitable Diaz/McGregor III bout would be the biggest MMA fight ever and would be pretty hard to beat.

    I would absolutely hate it if that happened, but there's no denying it would be really easy to sell. Could end up turning into the biggest MMA PPV of all time.

    Why hate it. It's one of the biggest rivalries in the past 10 years and would have the potential to see a 3 weight champ crowned. That's history.

    The UFC would love this fight, and they will sacrifice as many virgin goats as needed to have Nate win. Then you'd get several combinations of GSP/Nate/Conor. MW, WW, and LW champs all fighting each other. That's that Anderson Silva money right there, playboy

    Well he ain't moved anything yet haha. But I'm very curious what a Woodley/Diaz ppv would draw

    Could? The #1 and #3 top selling PPV's of all time are Conor vs Nate II and Conor vs Nate I. Conor holds 4 of the top 5 spots of highest selling PPV's of all time. Conor vs Nate III will no doubt be the #1 PPV of all time. If you sprinkle in a title or two, it will do 2 million buys easy.
    --- Post Added -- Nov 15, 2017, ---
    To be fair and objective, the only needle he's ever moved as had Conor attached to the other end of it. Matching him up with Woodley, who isn't the biggest draw himself, will definitely tell the popularity Nate now has and how that translates to PPV buys. I think honestly that Nate can pull 500k himself. So a Woodley/Nate title fight WHICH IS COMPLETELY UNDESERVED, would do roughly 700k. But we'll see.

    You answered your own statement. Its a joke. Titles aren't earned anymore by being a contender. Its earned by being someone people want to watch fight. Look at all of Bispings title fights. Look at even the notion that a not even top 20 ranked fighter can get a title shot because he may sell ppvs and may set up a fight down the road.

    With Conor being pulled and not fighting, it protects him and his value by having him fight possibly Nate if Nate wins. Its all bullshit.

    Is that a typo...do they mean Nick? Nate will get destroyed. What is Nate's top 170 ranking ever? Has he ever been in the top 15? What is he, 2-2 at WW (3-3 if you count the Connor fights)?

    Tyron Woodley: 'If Nate [Diaz] wants to go UFC 219, I'm ready'

    If Woodley is talking about money fights? Okay I get that. If he's talking a legacy fight, get all the way out of here, go around the corner, and jump off a cliff with that nonsense. Beating Nate does zero for his legacy.
