Dana White: We’ve Offered Nick Diaz Fight With Lyoto Machida

Dana White: We’ve Offered Nick Diaz Fight With Lyoto Machida

UFC president Dana White is ready to see Nick Diaz compete inside the Octagon again.

Many Diaz fans are ready to see the former Strikeforce champion return to action.

Heck, many anti-Diaz fans want to see what he can do, as well.

So, if Diaz does want to fight for the UFC, White has a perfect return bout up.

“I talked to Diaz today, and I made him an offer, so we’ll see what happens,” White said. “He had been talking about going to 185 pounds. Lyoto Machida has been talking about going to 185 pounds. So we wanted to see if he wanted to fight Machida at 185.”

White was on hand in Boston for a special Q&A (thanks to MMAjunkie.com for the quotes) and offered the update on Diaz.

For now, Diaz remains retired. It has been previously reported that he has met with White to discuss a potential return, but nothing else has been made public.
