Oh man, it’s going down now. Nick Diaz, one of the most popular fighters in the UFC, will return from his “retirement” in 2015, the UFC has reported today. According to the UFC, Nick Diaz has signed a three-fight extension with the UFC and will be back in the cage in 2015. The UFC also laid it on pretty thick that Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva could very easily go down in early 2015, which is really a fight that we’d all like to see.

“I’d like to fight for the title,” Diaz said. “I think that would be a big deal and worth fighting for. I want fights that will lead to a title fight. Whoever is in line and whoever has the title, that’s who I’m going to be fighting.

“I’d be interested in fighting [Anderson Silva] and anything that’s going to do well,” he continued. “As far as Anderson Silva, I think that would be a great fight for people to see because he has my type of style.”

So what do you think? Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva in 2015, cool, right? Let’s see if it actually happens. No matter what we’ll get Nick Diaz back in action and this probably means that he’ll be getting paid. That’s all that he wants. [source]
