Nick Diaz is moving forward with plans to promote his own MMA organization, as WAR MMA has secured June 22 and the Stockton Arena in Stockton, California for the first event.
The card will feature Daniel Roberts (13-4) taking on Justin Baesman (12-4) in the main event, with other bouts include Antonio Banuelos vs. Benny Vinson, Caleb Mitchell vs. Evan Esguerra, Roy Boughton vs. Liron Wilson, Mike Persons vs. Clayton McKinney, and Darrin Cooley vs. Cody Gibson.
Diaz announced plans to start his own promotion earlier this year following a loss to Georges St-Pierre for the UFC welterweight title. He stated after the bout that he would retire, the second such “retirement” announcement he has made since joining the UFC.
So, any plans to attend WAR MMA’s debut in June? If so, feel free to shoot us a recap of the event, as Diaz will probably avoid the media as much as possible.
