It was just recently announced that UFC welterweight legend Nick Diaz would be making his much-anticipated return to competition at UFC 209. Diaz last fought in January of 2015 at UFC 183 against Anderson Silva, in which after the bout he tested positive for marijuana metabolites.
In an unprecedented move by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) Diaz was handed a five-year suspension. Diaz’s team worked very hard to overturn that ruling, and eventually his suspension was reduced to a shorter term.
Now, he is expected to be back at UFC 209 and looking for someone to dance with.
Nick Diaz Is Close To Making His Return To The UFC
While fighters like Donald Cerrone, Tyron Woodley, Robbie Lawler and even Conor McGregor are on Diaz’s radar, there’s one fighter Diaz would love to get back at — Rampage Jackson.
Diaz was on The Jasta Show recently, and told an interesting story about how Jackson tried to steal his “girl” when he was 16. Listen to the story, it’s pretty epic stuff.
Jackson is of course notorious when it comes to his antics with women. He’s been known to author various awkward situations with girls in public and on camera.
Rampage Jackson Is Notorious For His Antics With Women
Jackson even once dry-humped a reporter while she was trying to interview him. He also once tried to motorboat Karyn Bryant. If that isn’t crazy then I don’t know what is.
It’s not surprising at all that when you hear Diaz talk about how Jackson tried to steal his girl, that it might actually be true. Nevertheless, it’s a great story and probably one that Diaz will never forget.
Diaz and the girl in question aren’t together (maybe she’s with Rampage, LOL). And in fact, Diaz doesn’t even think that she would remember him. But it’s still a great story regardless and a great tidbit for Nick Diaz fans out there.
Diaz has been gone a long time and now that he’s coming back to the UFC, it’s a great thing. It’s been a long wait but it’s time to see the Stockton Bad Boy back in action.
