Nick Diaz VS Anderson Silva

nick diaz vs anderson silva would be epic but...

nick has not won a fight since 2011 and has not fought since march of 2013

anderson silva still out for atleast 8 months from now also coming off a loss.

anderson silva fights at 185,walks around at 220-230 and come fight night is probably 195-205

nick diaz fights at 170 and would probably weigh 170-175 on fight night.

im a huge fan of diaz brothers and really can't express how much it sucks that he is not fighting but if these 2 fight 1 of these guys retires following the loss.

silva is not going to make a run for the title at 185 as lyoto machida is there.He won't make 170 so he will have to go upto 205 and a win over diaz ain't gonna do shit for him there.

diaz if he were to win could use the hype to maybe get a titleshot at 170.

either way if this fight happens one of these will retire after it and it will probably be nick as anderson silva has the height,weight advantage and has alot of experience fighting much larger guys then nick.

anderson silva will not take any bait from diaz meaning it will be quite a boring leadup to the fight.

in my opinion that counts for nothing :) i think anderson silva should fight someone like rashad evans at 205 and look to get that titleshot or retire.

nick diaz should be gratefull he is offered top 5 guys given how the last 3 years have gone,he should jump at the chance and take whatever he can get because before you know it time passes and nick will be 35 and its all over,his value will drop.
