MacDonald interested in Diaz fight next

by Damon Martin | source:

“I would fight him,” MacDonald said about facing Diaz. “(He comes back ) in February, and I might be ready to fight in like March or something like that. He might be my next fight after B.J., you never know how it works.”

Diaz has never been a quiet one when speaking his mind about potential opponents, and that includes UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, who is one of MacDonald’s teammates.

The talk doesn’t motivate MacDonald to face Diaz, however, it’s more about the challenge of the fight. As a matter of fact, MacDonald gets why Diaz says what he says.

“I don’t think there’s a target on people who talk. That’s the fight game, you’ve got to pump up the fights,” MacDonald stated.

We should talk more about how BJ is going to knock Rory out, though.

Nick Diaz needs to fight GSP , Carlos , or Anderson . not the guy who just got knocked out by BJ.

I would think Rory rag dolling Nate all over the octagon would have them more upset. Personally I would love to see this fight. Hope Rory isn't sleeping on BJ though. He's as tough a 1st round fighter as they come.
