Nick Diaz is a case of a fighter that just about everyone wants to see back in action, but there are conflicting reasons as to why. Some fans want to see Nick Diaz, their hero return, while others want to see him get his face pummeled in. Either way, Nick Diaz is in the enviable position right now to be a fighter that fans are willing to pay to see in an increasingly bleak landscape for the UFC that is devoid of stars.
According to Ariel Helwani, Nick Diaz has heard the rumblings from Anderson Silva’s camp that he’d want to return to fight Nick Diaz in a super fight and Daiz seems down for it, but he wants the UFC to back up a dump truck full of money into his estate in the 209 to make this happen. Will it happen? Probably not, knowing how the UFC works right now, but fans can dream. [source]
