Six Best Trades MMA Fans Deserve

The Diaz Brothers For Gegard Mousasi & Douglas Lima

If the Diaz brothers don’t want to fight for the UFC then why not trade both of them to Bellator for a couple of elite fighters?

This is another one of those instances where all parties involved would end up in a better place than where they started. For both Nick and Nate, they would be signed to a promotion that reportedly treats their fighters differently than the rigid UFC. I honestly can’t think of a better scenario for them.

In return, the UFC would get back Mousasi, who left the promotion to pursue greener pastures. Since leaving the UFC he has continued his run, rattling off three straight wins and capturing the middleweight title in the process.

The UFC would also get Douglas Lima, not to be confused with his brother Dhiego, who is already on the UFC roster. Lima is a legit top 10 welterweight in the world and would be a welcome addition to a stacked 170-pound class.
