The news everyone has waited to hear…
After his long and drawn out battle with the NSAC last year, it looked for a while like Nick Diaz might retire. Having been handed a five-year ban by the commission, Diaz had to face a harsh reality.
Thankfully, after heaps of public pressure, the decision to ban Diaz was greatly reduced. Instead opting to bench Diaz for 18 months, the NSAC scrambled to win back some respect from the public. They failed miserably nonetheless.
Finally settling his fine with the commission this month, Diaz has a number of interesting fights to consider. UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley recently called him out, and there’s plenty of other top contenders.
At welterweight, a rematch with Robbie Lawler could prove a great return fight, possibly Donald Cerrone is in there too. Whatever the case, fans have been eagerly awaiting news on his comeback. Then, as per MikeSwick.com, this news broke:
“Sources close to the UFC have confirmed to MikeSwick.com that the perennial welterweight title contender is looking to enter the cage once again March 4, 2017, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.”
Diaz has been steadily making more media appearances in the last few weeks, adding further to the speculation about his comeback. Check out how motivated Diaz sounds about smashing the top competition in the UFC right now:
“You want to come into this with a life and a nice wife, motherf***er I don’t have any of that. I don’t get to go home to my nice wife and nice life. You are putting all that effort into your nice wife and I’m putting 100% into what I do.” Diaz stated on the show.
“I’m going to f*** your whole world up in front of your nice wife and nice life”
Nick says Nate would’ve finished Conor had he been allowed to corner his brother
“One inch, you know what I mean, that’s the difference between how that fight could have gone. As far as I’m concerned I definitely would have been that inch.” Nick said on the Opie show.
“Come 3rd or 4th round I think if I had been there we would have put it together and got that guy out of there.”
