Nick Diaz Enters Contract Negotiations, Eyes Return This Year
One of MMA’s biggest personalities, Nick Diaz, who hasn’t fought since dropping a decision loss to Georges St. Pierre at UFC 158 in March of 2013, now wants to make a return to MMA.
Sports Illustrated’s Loretta Hunt ran into Diaz at Glory Kickboxing this past weekend and got the story.
Ran into Nick Diaz last nite at Glory. Good mood. Said he hoped to be fighting again by new year; trying to work out contracts now

There have been talks of Diaz potentially being the man to welcome former middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva back to the Octagon when he is ready to make his return in early 2015.
