"I have a strong wish to meet Nate Diaz in my next fight" - that's what Khabib said in his cage-side interview. Unfortunately he wasn't able to challenge Diaz in octagon as they didn't have Russian-Portuguese interpreter.

Great match up.

Few people know that Diaz has been training in Sambo for years.

the stand up and grappling would be fun to watch

I would be very hesistant to take this fight if I were Diaz. Great call-out for Nurmagomedov though, if he isn't in the top10 yet he would be for sure after beating Diaz.

Bad fight for Diaz, that guy is a legit badass. Little Fedor, imo.

Chaelismyhero - Won't happen. Nobody knows who Kabib is. I could see him fighting like Yves Edwards.

i'd love to see Diaz v Kabib, but i have to agree...

besides, i think the UFC is going to want to slowly build some Russian fighters to help their global expansion.

To be honest how many people know who Gilbert Melendez outside the hardcore fan base? I wouldn't say much that's why they put them on FOX cards let them build their fans up

But with the way the Russian fighters are making a name for themselves they should really think about a card in Moscow or somewhere in Russia

I dont get this. Everyone was all on Jon Jones case about "accepting" the Sonnen fight. So why would Nate Diaz get the choice to "accept" a fight or not. I thought UFC made the matchups, not fighters. So which way is it?

Diaz wins by being a far better fighter who has fought top ten guys.

I both agree and disagree with this. Fighters have to become top 10 guys somehow and the only real way to do that is to fight guys in the top 10. I do think that Diaz is more than just top 10 (legit top 5) and that Khabib needs to fight the Lauzons, Jim Millers, etc of the division before having a crack at someone like Diaz. Khabib looks great so far but lets not jump the gun. I'm not a big fan of rushing young guys into title contention fights before they've proved they can handle the top end of the division.

Melendez is the number 2 guy in the world and is WAY better know than Khabib. Plus its a title unification bout.

I didn't mean to compare where they are ranked by cmon Melendez doesn't exactly have a huge fanbase either. Bigger than Khabib's probably but still not that big

You are absolutely right. This is exactly like that time a fighter pulled out of the headlining UFC LHW fight, and a replacement from a lower weight class stepped up but was refused by the champion.

Exactly the same.

Hey everyone, this guy nailed it! He fuckin' NAILED IT!!!

I think Khabib would wreck Melendez.

Yes i agree,Melendez is not extremely well known,but he has been in main events before and has fought in Pride.So he is fairly well known.

And to youarewhatiswrong their is no way in hell Khabib wrecks Gil.

Lock me in for a SN bet if the fight ever comes up.
