Nick Diaz - Possible return?

Ok, a much needed change from Silva/Weidman debate!

Looks like Nick is pondering a return to the UFC

Quote:
Diaz recently took to Instagram—the one social network he seems to love to stay active and posting on—to reveal that he had broken up with his girlfriend and was looking for a fight now.

UFC president Dana White said he's more than happy to get Diaz a bout if he's serious about returning. Diaz is still under a deal with the UFC, and despite his earlier proclamations about retirement, it doesn't seem the promotion went ahead and ripped up his deal.

"He said broke up with his girlfriend, wants to fight, Dana get me a fight," White said about Diaz's message to him on Instagram. "Nick Diaz is under contract with the UFC, whenever Nick Diaz wants a fight, I'd be more than happy to get him a fight."

Diaz vs Andy at a catchweight, I'm pretty sure they would both be happy with this fight.

Well Anderson wants to test his boxing, I'm sure Diaz would be happy to stand and trade. Could be a good fight.

Diaz would either get destroyed against Silva or they would spend 15 minutes taunting and go to a draw based on neither guy throwing a punch

Diaz should fight Robbie Lawler cause that would likely be entertaining as hell again.

Of course... We'll never be rid of him, he'll be a leech on the side of MMA until he's too old to get off the couch.

Not a fan but he is entertaining.

Give him the loser of Jake vs Rory.

Actually this could be an exhibition match...and we all know Diaz is crazy enough to do it.

Anderson probably will disregard his kicks and both would just utilize boxing and go a full five rounds. Only danger is if Anderson decides to play around in the guard and gets submitted...unlikely, but it can happen.

Otherwise if Anderson utilized his muay thai...he would chop his legs worse than Aldo vs Faber. Anderson is far taller than Aldo thus his kicks are that much more powerful if he decided to go with that fully.

Everyone to Twitter now! What a fun matchup!

5 rounds? Bums like Cyborg Santos an Paul Daley have exploited nicks shite defense you think AS couldn't do it?
AS drops his hands and uses movement to avoid punches Nick drops his hands and uses his face to hurt his opponents hands, might not go well against one of the most powerful and precise strikers to ever step in the cage.
