A Diaz attended a BJJ Superfight + Signs new deal

Quote:
Nate Diaz, unlike his brother, actually showed up to his superfight this past weekend at the Gracie Open 2012. Diaz's opponent was Osvaldo Augusto Queixinho, a two-time Brazilian national champion who owns a BJJ school in San Jose, CA. Diaz was recently awarded his black belt under Cesar Gracie, but it didn't help him here as he was finished via toe-hold, which looked pretty damn painful.

Nate Diaz isn’t going anywhere new in regards to his fighting future. Diaz, who was called the #1 contender in the UFC‘s lightweight division after besting Jim Miller earlier this year, signed a new contract with the promotion earlier this week.
Diaz is expected to receive a shot at the winner of champion Benson Henderson‘s bout with Frankie Edgar this weekend at UFC 150.
“Just wrapped up another deal with (Diaz) and (Cesar Gracie, the manager/trainer for Diaz),” UFC President Dana White posted on Twitter. “Deal done.”
Diaz, Gracie, White and UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta all posed for a picture following the signing.
As a side note, though a few weeks back Gracie mentioned he would ask White about allowing Nick Diaz to compete overseas while serving out his suspension in Nevada for a failed drug test, no mention of those talks were made by White in his Tweet.

Also Nate doesn't seem too happy for a guy who just signed a deal for loads of money.

superfight just means a fight of interest outside of the regular competition. UFC used to have "super fights" back when it was a tournament.

Ken Shamrock "superfight Champion"
