    I want Nick Diaz and Jorge, now that Jorge has enough shine that Nick would consider it. The time is now while Jorge's stock is so high.

    I think people over praise Jorge like he's some unbeatable contender. Sure, he successfully landed a knee (which was very well executed) and total fight was around 5 seconds and it was due to Jorge's mind game. If the fight went on just by skill, Ben might have had a chance to win a decision. Many people have shown that they could make a run, including Conor, RDA at one point, Cowboy, etc.

    Khabib won't fall for Jorge's mind games cuz he's too disciplined.

    The ufc has shown in the past that they book fights based upon appeal and what will sell. After beating cerrone and till, serving up a 3 piece and a soda, then flatlining askren, he may have just created a cult-like following, amd the buys that come along with it. UFC might want to jump on that gravy train amd strike while the iron is hot. On top of that, they have a guy who is not out there trying to protect himself from challenges. one thing is for certain, they are going to have to pay the man no matter which direction they go.

    for sure I agree. I was going off of the notion of someone being an actual challenge for Khabib by skill aside from being the best draw

    As a sports organization/league, their job is to respect rankings and give the most deserving title shots. They however do not operate like this.

    I think that Jorge's ko of Ben would create a little doubt in Khabib's mind and keep it on the feet long enough for Jorge to possibly capitalize.

    Right now Jorge is hot and has some magic going on around him. This is the time to use him in some interesting matches and see if something else spectacular happens.

    Don't sleep on momentum when it comes to sports. IT'S how legendary moments happen...

    And as an example of the above: Randleman's CroCop and Fedor fights. He had something special happening for him and he made some magic happen in two fights where he was supposed to get worked liked a jobber....
