Nate Diaz to face Thomson at 'UFC on Fox 7'

Former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson will return to the octagon on April 20 against Stockton’s Nate Diaz at "UFC on Fox 7."

Fighting out of the American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, Thomson (19-5) is coming off a controversial split decision loss to Gilbert Melendez last May.

Diaz (16-8) will be looking to bounce back from his unanimous decision loss to current UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson back in December.

Tickets to “UFC on Fox 7” at HP Pavilion in San Jose go on sale Feb. 15.

UFC on FOX 7: Henderson vs. Melendez
Date: April 20, 2013
Location: San Jose, California

-Benson Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez - for UFC Lightweight title
-Daniel Cormier vs. Frank Mir
-Nate Diaz vs. Josh Thomson
-Matt Brown vs. Dan Hardy

 

Vitor Belfort vs. Luke Rockhold was also rumored for this event but nothing has been confirmed. Those four fights look like a lock for the 4 FOX fights to me.

Damn, that's dirty of them to make Nate fight on 4/20. Well, maybe he can still get blitzed after the fight. After a win that would be awesome.

Will be Diaz's third fox fight. I just hop they don't show the far away cage view when he flips the bird next time.

Nice fight on paper, but with Thomson's injury history, I wouldn't get too excited until they're in the cage.

Stylistically it favours Nate. Josh isn't a great wrestler and I think he's had trouble with his knees. He probably loses on the feet.

Anyone remember their grappling match years ago? I believe Nate was a purple or brown belt at the time. It was a good match, fight should be awesome.
