Who's Next For Nate Diaz?

New, 8 comments

Nate Diaz has blazed a trail through his UFC opponents and has constantly asked to face quality competition. After beating a very game Josh Neer at last night's Ultimate Fight Night 15, who should be next in line to face the charismatic LW?

I think the perfect opponent for Nate Diaz at this very moment is Hermes Franca. Franca is the former #1 LW contender and holds a submission victory over Diaz. The two combatants fought back in 2006 at WEC 24 "Full Force" in a spirited bout. Franca is coming off a decision loss to New Jersey's Frankie Edgar and would continue that step up in competition that Diaz seeks each and every fight. Franca is scheduled to fight Gleison Tibau at UFC 90, but this is a match that could and should be made at some point.

Who would you like to see Diaz face next?
