Welterweight Nick Diaz (26-9) said he was done with MMA after losing a decision to champion Georges St-Pierre, leaving the door cracked open for his return to the ring if offered a second shot at St-Pierre or opportunity in the Octagon with middleweight king Anderson Silva. Though neither match-up is likely to materialize anytime soon if ever, it appears Diaz has another option at his fingertips and an intriguing one at that.
“I want to be in good fights with a lot of hype and a lot of buzz, and a rematch with Diaz and myself would interest a lot of folks.”
“The fight was a close fight. It was a decision. So I think we could put on a good show. It goes without saying that there was a lot of controversy after the fight. Just putting that to rest would be another reason I would like to fight.”
“I definitely think I have another title run in me. I’m looking at making the next year or two some of my best fights. I’m trying to cement my legacy, and we’ll see where I am after that.”
