It's apparently not Tony, but Dana said whoever wins will be in a very good position. I'm thinking Justin maybe?

How can he still make 55, he's bigger than Nick?

Nate does his best work at 55, with a few exceptions against smaller 170lbers.

I cant see Nate taking a fight at 155. He absolutely hates cutting weight and would only do it for the right opponent and pay. Dana trying to negotiate in the public. Thats why he said he is "working on it" and IF Nate takes it...

I think it will be Gaethje, has war written all over it.

I'm guessing Oliveira.   Nates gives him a good chance at winning and setting up a title fight but it also gives charles a chance at beating a big named fighter that puts him in the spotlight and a chance to fight for the title.

That would be a great fight

This would be awesome. Both have very solid grappling, and I'd love to see a standard war with these too as well.

Oliveira may not have the star power of Gaethje which makes me wonder if Nate would accept.

Yawn

Despite being a punching bag in the BMF fight, he is not relevant.

He will get beaten to a pulp again because he hasn't improved in 10 years.

Nate vs. Tony in a 5 round fight would have been awesome.

I doubt it, but if so Nate would get ragdolled for 25 minutes.

Yeah, Diaz bros don't handle guys with good leg kicks very well.
