On Saturday, Diaz has a chance to make his case as the true No. 1 welterweight contender when he faces BJ Penn. And according to his trainer and manager Cesar Gracie, if Diaz decisively wins the bout that night, they'll ask to bypass Carlos Condit and get bumped back into his original position as GSP's next challenger.

"This is the UFC so there's always that chance," Gracie said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "There's no question about it that I will ask for that if Nick has a tremendous performance and he can finish BJ, I would ask for that. But the biggest thing is if the fans want it. If the fans all ask for that, Dana [White] is a smart guy. He knows the sport is about the fans. So who knows?"

Of course, much is dependent on Diaz winning.

It was a fight that neither side wanted, stemming from Penn's longstanding relationship with the camp. In fact, years ago, he fought for the first time ever while under the Team Cesar Gracie banner.

 i like it..winner fights gsp..loser fights condit...from a business perspective, that is the arrangement that makes the most sense since condit still needs to be built up

How is he true number1? He hasnt beat anyone and bj is a lightweight anyway. Fitch, koscheck, condit, alves, johnson, would all push nicks shit in. It dont really matter tho cuz diaz will get finished by pen anyway Phone Post

I would rather see Diaz vs GSP, but only if Diaz finishes BJ, not win a close decision. Diaz vs GSP seems like a more interesting fight. Though, Dana gave the shot for Condit to fight GSP, so it wouldn't seem right for him to take it away. But the more interesting fight is GSP-Diaz, imo.

Diaz is going to have to dominate BJ to have any kind of a case for jumping over Condit for the title shot. Anything can happen but that is a tough job for anyone.

 Can't do that to Condit.

If Nick wins, put GSP/Condit together ASAP and have Nick at cageside to do the post fight staredown with the winner...he can hang with Rashad and get some pointers about how to ruin special nights.

Condit can go back to fighting n00bs if Diaz wins in dominant fashion. Everybody knows Condit to Diaz is like Kongo to JDS.

LOL at Diaz getting a shot considering most 5 of the current 10 top WW would push his face in.

Who cares about Condit, feed him to Fitch, Koscheck, or Penn. The people want GSP/Diaz, not a snoozefest that would be GSP/Condit.

Well that's the easy part, talking about it.  Now you have to do it, which he can't and won't. 

I'm a Diaz fan, but he has nothing for BJ.

 Yeah he's had a real easy road.  Ellenberger, RoryMac, Stun Gun...total cans.  Nothing next to KJ Noons, Zaromskis, or Evangelista Cyborg.
