“[Diaz] will be back. Really like the kid just needs to get it together. I’m a sap for real fighters.”

UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta took to twitter yesterday to field fan questions. During his time in the session he told the people participating that he does intend to let Nick Diaz stay in the UFC following his positive drug test results.

For many fighters, they lose their job at the drop of the hat. Torres lost it for a twitter post, some lose it for three losses, others two, and yet Todd Duffee lost his employment after just one.

In the case of Diaz, after multiple infractions with the company, he still gets to keep his position with the promotion should he so choose to.

Good news for Diaz fans!
