Nick Diaz Announcement!!

http://graciefighter.com/

^^ Read it guys. Wow, crazy stuff.

Apparently he wants A. Silva! That'd be such a crazy, and hyped up fight, I don't even know if I'd be able to control myself! D:
I know plenty of people who have been wanting this super fight, but have definitely doubted the possibility, well... They might get that super fight. I personally don't know what's going to happen, but I'm sure Anderson would love to fight Diaz, he doesn't like any of the other options that are coming up for him at the moment.

What do you guys think about this announcement?

Quote:
It’s been a trying time these last 4 months as I have been faced with the prospect that one of our team’s most talented fighters had decided to leave the sport. As a fan I’ve always admired what both of the Diaz’s brought to the cage; a combination of technical brilliance and raw violence.

Nate Diaz has finally put his game together and found the formula to propel him to the top of the 155lbs division. To see Nick leave at the top of his game was difficult.

For the last couple of months I’ve watched Nick begin to frequent the gym more and more. He’s training harder now than he has for many of his fights. It was obvious that training and fighting is in his DNA. It is who he is.
This week we had a great talk and he made it clear to me that he is ready to get back to the cage. Nick Diaz will return.

To address the NSAC suspension, I will say that we have appealed to the courts and if things go our way, it will be plausible that Nick could return as early as sometime at the end of this year.
For too long NSAC bureaucrats have acted with malicious incompetence towards the fighters. We will challenge them in court.

As far as future opponents, Nick has stated that he would like to take fights “that matter”. Since GSP will be fighting Condit, he has to look elsewhere. He will respectfully ask for a fight with Anderson Silva, a fighter he respects and would like to challenge.

Silva’s camp has been speaking of a fight with GSP, possibly even at a catch weight. Nick will take that fight in a minute but has told me that should Silva decide not to drop at all, he will move up to 185lbs to face the Champ.

I will be meeting with Dana next Monday August 6th to discuss this and other issues. If you appreciate Nick’s fighting style, please let Dana know that you want Nick back ASAP.

Thank you and best regards,
Cesar Gracie

Anderson would kill him.

I'm just looking forward to his next fight so I can see one of those wrestlers take him down and hold him down and then watch him throw another temper tantrum and complain about the rules.

Anderson will sweep the octagon with him in a single round!

Lame match if its done, because it would be a one sided match!

Agreed. Anderson is way too accurate and powerful to come at him like Diaz would.

So a WW coming off a loss and an epic bitchfest wants the greatest MW ever? and this makes sense somehow?

Never mind what I think about the fight itself, this utter bullshit as far as matchmaking goes. This sort of thing happens on reality shows, not legitimate sporting competitions.

ETA: OMG. "Malicious incompetence." That's... I can't even begin to describe the glory with which this term fails to make any sense. It's the double rainbow of idiocy.

to those whining, you would have a point if there were 3 or 4 guys that were legitimate challenges to Silva but there are none. Atleast Diaz would bring the fight and not stand there like Okami and Belfort, whose Anderson gonna fight instead? Bisping? If Anderson isn't fighting Jon Jones atleast make it against someone who shows up to fight.

Considering Diaz has struggled mightily with extremely poor man's versions of Anderson in Condit and Cyborg, pretty safe to say this would be a massacre.
