    The practical move. There's no reason for a rematch as Masvidal totally outclassed Diaz - Covington/Masvidal is a far more competitive fight that makes sense ranking wise and will definitely be able to catch the attention of casual fans with the built up. Diaz 2021 :lol: Diva 2021 is more like it as they will cry from the sidelines not getting the fights they want.

    Thank god Nate Diva Diaz isn't getting another unwarranted payday. Another Masvidal-Diva Diaz fight would be a joke to make. No fans want to watch that rubbish again. Fans want fresh matchups with relevant fighters. Diva Diaz isn't relevant at all. He's not an elite fighter and never has been.
    I'm picking Colby to beat Masvidal if Masvidal actually signs for the fight and stops ducking.
