Nate Diaz considering return to welterweight division

Friday, April 19, 2013

Nate Diaz has fought in both the lightweight and welterweight division with varied success. He earned a lightweight title shot at Benson Henderson and will fight Josh Thomson this weekend at the UFC on FOX 7. However his good friend and teammate will fight Henderson this weekend, and should he win the TUF 5 alum may consider a return to welterweight:

“I’m not huntin’ (the title) right now, honestly. My boy is about to put it down and hold the belt for the next … I don’t even know how long. I’m probably gonna bail up outta this weight division as soon as this fight is done. I fought everybody at lightweight already.”
