Nate Diaz plans move back to WW

"I don't think there's anything for me at the lightweight division," he told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I already beat everyone at lightweight or I fought everyone already. The only person who beat me was Ben, and Gil's going to handle him Saturday. I'm going to sit around and fight the guys all over again? Boring. There's no motivation in that. I'd rather fight someone new."

I get the idea of he lost to Benson now he believes Gilbert will beat him so what's left, but I think he can be a more successful MMA fighter at 155 right now. He hasn't beat everybody and he is gonna get rag-dolled again soon enough at 170. I think he should be motivated to earn rematches with Bendo or Maynard. Those are not boring, they are redemption and atonement. A goal for him to set to win those fights.

Don't worry this will go out the window when the Cesar Gracie guys go 0-2.

Yea, I see what he is talking about, but I don't think he is nearly as good at 170.

But if Melendez wins the belt, what motivation is there for him at 155?

I'd like to see him fight Maynard again. Diego Sanchez wouldn't be bad as well since there is a little tension there.

Nate is in a tough spot but I think he should wait to see what happens this weekend for sure. If Gil loses he should stay.

Nate vs Nick would be interesting. That would sell.

Remember when Gil was gonna go down to FW because Nate was gonna beat Bendo?

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.
