    Who knows what to believe but I think as fans we sometimes ignore the business side of the game, which is important. I don't think Nate is scared of anyone but I do believe that he may have asked for a change in contract before signing to fight Khabib. Either way, I think there are better fights out there for him, stylistically speaking.

    Put him on the UFC 170 card with Bobby Green. I'm going to that event.

    If that fight gets added, Rousey/McMann automatically gets booted to the prelims and Diaz/Green is the new headliner.

    I thought Rousey vs McMann was already a prelim?

    why would he wait for a title fight when he is on a 1 fight win streak with a win over a guy that was coming off a loss? That would be a really long wait seeing as he isn't in title contention. I like Nate but he isn't anywhere near a title shot. I'd like to see him rematch Cowboy or Ross

    I doubt he himself thinks he deserve a title shot, his manager seems to be on crack right now. the worst manager since Tito

    Pretty much confirms that they are ducking Khabib. If he will fight tomorrow and he's not waiting around for a title shot, then why not fight Khabib? Makes no sense, but then again when does anything the Diaz bros do make sense

    Twitter sucks!

    As soon as I read that I think 'well then why did you turn down the fight?', but alas. I'm left with another open ended Diaz comment that leaves me more confused than anything.

    The Diaz brothers are way more predictable than people think. Stuff like this makes it seem like they don't want fights, but it is obvious that what's happening currently is that they're both weighing their options. They have no problem throwing down with anybody, but why take a fight against a guy like Khabib, who is legit, but won't draw as much attention as a fight with a guy like T.J. Grant perhaps (for a #1 contender, for example)?

    If the UFC told Nate that the best they can do for him right now is a fight with Khabib, he'd take it and hype that fight to the best of his ability. However, he's going to wait and see what opportunities may present themselves in the near future and choose what is best for him based on that. In his mind, there's no point rushing to take part in the lesser of two fights...if he can wait a bit and find something better for him, he'll take it.

    Besides that, all the while he takes his time, the fans will continue to talk about stuff like this and they'll want to see him fight even more upon his return. This alone could help propel him into a more relevant and profitable fight. If not, it'll still help with ticket sales, if and when he fights Khabib. These guys aren't as stupid as people think.

    Yeah, but the "best" thing Nate can probably do for his career is take this fight with Khabib, school him, then come back around asking for a title shot with another huge notch on his belt; more momentum and confidence behind him. He should not get to just stay on the shelf because the Champ of his division is injured.

    Because the current belt holder called him out and expressed his desire to fight Nate. That is the only reason why as he needs another win to get back into the title picture.

    lol I love Nate too, but Maynard isn't even close to being the #2 guy. I can't even say it sarcastically.

    Who the **** is higher than Maynard then!?

    What's that? Nobody?

    Exactly, shut the **** up
    Maynard is a glass jaw bum who has been ktfo in 3 out of his last4 fights. He shouldn't even be in the the top ten. I'd say he should go back to lay and pray but his grappling isn't even good anymore considering he got ragdolled by nate. The only time Nate trains wrassling is when he is wrassling the bong out of nicks hands.

    Nate is number 5 in the rankings, if he wants a quick title shot he needs to beat either Henderson, gil or grant. Since Henderson already owned him over five rounds i can't see him winning that, he won't fight gil so grant is his best bet. Pretty sure Thompson is getting the next shot and he has already ktfo nate.
