Fresh on the heels of Gilbert Melendez’s comments on Diaz, Michael Bisping has added himself to the list of people who will sacrifice their time in training to get the older Diaz brother back inside the Octagon.
@arielhelwani well if Diaz wants a fight at 185 I would happily welcome him to the division.

UFC President Dana White also shared a similar sentiment:
@UFC_AllDay I love that fight

In a recent interview with Fighters Only Diaz didn’t close the door on the opportunity to return to action.
“Its kind of hard to retire from MMA, there’s always something to do. I am always going to be around it, like my brother is in training camp right now because he has a fight coming up so I am training with him,” he told us.
“I don’t mind taking fights if it’s a big fight that people are going to make a big deal out of. If not then it’s not really worth it to me.
