Nate Diaz talked with Jordan Breen Tuesday night in Northern California, where the UFC lightweight No. 1 contender has already returned to work. 

"I’ve been training with Gilbert and Jake (Shields) for years," said Diaz. "They’ve shown me a lot. These are guys I look up to. Me and Gil been battling it out in here for years.

"There’s no one better than him. There’s no doubt in my mind he’s the best 155′er on the planet and I think he deserves to be right there in the UFC holding the UFC belt. He’s the man."

UFC President Dana White has said he’ll get the next shot at the UFC lightweight belt if he’s willing to wait. Melendez, meanwhile, is set for a third fight with Josh Thomson on May 19.

It is sad that reason that Melendez is staying relevant is because Nate hyped him on the UFC telecast.

Gilbert is a good fighter, but not signing with the UFC was a stupid move and now he is stuck in Strikeforce until the end of 2014.

I think Nate knows, if he's saying that it means something. I definitely see Gil only having problems with Edgar or Henderson. Other than that... I think Gil pretty much beats everyone including Nate.

Saying that his contract has him trapped seems like garbage . Could he not come to a reasonable end to his contract with strike force ( owned by zuffa ) if both parties really wanted to . I think bendo slays Diaz and Melendez Phone Post

The question is, will Strikeforce last until the end of 2014?

If Diaz becomes the 155lb champ? and Milendez comes to the UFC what would the 209 have to say about that and would we see a split like what happend with Hashad and JJ if Blaf forces them to fight

I honestly don't get where all the Edgar love is coming from. I mean he's a good fighter but I honestly think he is very much over rated. He should have list the first bj fight, then going 1-0-1 vs gray. And getting smashed by bendo... I don't see Frankie in the top 3 in the UFC. Let alone adding Gil to the roster Phone Post

lol @ him getting "smashed" by Bendo, lots of people, including the president of the ufc think he won. calling that smashed is just hating. the first fight with bj was close - he knocked him around in the second one and he knocked maynard out.

also lol @ him being overrated. he's 14 and 2 with wins over bj, maynard, sherk, franca, and miller among others. he has one of the best records at lw, and against top competition.

Youre a fuckin retard... And I can't wait for Melendez to get to the ufc so all this bullshit can stop of course he's the best because he's hot in the ufc...He would lose to Bendo, Nate, Maynard, and Edgar. Phone Post

It is Showtime that won't allow Strikeforce to transfer fighters to the UFC. Strikeforce's new deal with Showtime only allowed HWs to be transferred over, everyone else had to stay.

This. Frankie is great.

Its amazing how some people rate fighters after 1 loss. From the best of the best to just plain garbage over night.

If Frankie is not that good, and he beat Gray. where does that put Gray, Just outside top 10...? Phone Post

Edgar beat benson how? By catching leg kicks and being punched right after? Phone Post
Where did anyone say Edgar beat Benson?

The point was that it was a close fight. Phone Post
