Diaz will need to earn title shot after return

[mmajunkie.com]
 

Diaz and trainer Cesar Gracie initially teased the idea of the idea of the 29-year-old from retiring from MMA. But in recent weeks, Gracie has made a public pitch for a fight between Diaz and middleweight champion Anderson Silva. There's also a potential matchup with welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre, who meets Condit in a title-unification bout with Condit next month at UFC 154. (Diaz, of course, was previously scheduled to fight Diaz in his UFC return but lost the fight when he flaked out on a pair of press conference.)

"When Diaz gets off suspension, he'll probably fight one of the top guys at 170 pounds," White said Wednesday. "Then we'll see what happens."

Diaz is eligible to return to action in early February 2013.

Not kos, he has shown his willingness to LnP for a win coupled with sub defense, this would clearly be his best game plan against nick. I want to see nick in exciting fights. Phone Post
