Cesar Gracie Explains Why Nick Diaz Wants To Fight Anderson Silva | UFC NEWS

October 29, 2012 10:00 am by bjpenn.com staff 52 Comments

“Nick really wants this fight because he has great admiration and respect for Anderson as a fighter. Anderson Silva is a true martial artist, he studied martial arts, is a great representative of the sport. Nick loves martial arts and that, for him, is enough to put Anderson Silva as the opponent. … I heard Dana White’s statements saying that Nick will have to fight someone before having another chance at the title shot and there are a lot of fighters out there who would love this fight.”

There is at least one welterweight who is drooling over the possibility of facing Anderson Silva, but it’s not GSP.

Cesar Gracie recently told Tatame.com why his star pupil, Nick Diaz, wants to fight the P4P king.
