Nick Diaz ready to return - 'but only for the big fights' 

Following his ‘retirement’ from fighting after losing a decision to welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 158 , Nick Diaz has been enjoying his time away from the cage and away from the demands of being a full-time fighter.

However, Diaz has plenty of fight left in him and he is keen to make some money. While he has been enjoying some downtime he has been doing some thinking. He has concluded that what he would like his immediate future to hold is some big money, big reward fights.

The fight with St. Pierre was really the first time that Diaz got to take a bite of the big-money cake that the UFC’s top-tier fighters feast on. And if he had won, the coming paydays would have been enormous. He didn’t get the win, but he’s been thinking about it ever since.

Pretty sure this isn't news. He said he only wants big fights, a while ago. Phone Post

Can't hate a guy for trying, right? I think Nick will get beat by most guys in the WW top 5, although he's my favourite WW out there. I'd like to see him fight Kampmann or Maia, and then fight Condit/Ellenberger or the loser (or winner?) of GSP/Hendrix. Another interesting but potentially dangerous fight would he Lombard. I honestly think Nick could hold out and let him tire before earning a late finish or decision. Hector throws bombs though! Phone Post 3.0

They have to match him up with Condit again, or Lawler after he beats Rory. Those would be amazing fights.

put Diaz on a card and it will be entertaining, either the lead up to the fight or during the fight. the winner or loser of MacDonald vs. lawler would be awesome

If GSP doesn't want to fight Rory he should pay Diaz to come back and derail him. Phone Post

I would want big fights, too. He's always exciting, did very well against Carlos Condit, and lit up BJ Penn and fans want to see him fight.
