The Diaz brothers are two of the most favourite fighters of the MMA community. The Stockton products seem to have a new outlook with a UFC return square in their side.

Nick Diaz is one of the biggest stars in the UFC. He has been ruling the UFC welterweight division not only with his performances inside the octagon but which his promoting skills outside the octagon as well. However due to three whereabout failures, he was suspended by USADA for 12 months thus making him ineligible to compete. With Diaz’s suspension ending on April 19 and him remaining in the testing pool, Diaz is now looking to secure a fight.

Rumours broke out earlier this week that younger brother Nate Diaz’s comeback is also slated for UFC 227 in August. Sources say that Nate wants to fight at the lightweight division. And according to their teammate UFC veteran Jake Shields, Nick Diaz wants to return at welterweight to fight current champion Tyron ‘the Chosen one’ Woodley.

Shields in a recent interview with Ariel Helwani on the MMA hour said, “I think (Nick) will fight again soon. He’s been training a little bit. I haven’t been out there (in California), but I’m pretty sure he’s been training a decent amount. I would love to see him fight again. He hasn’t been training as much, but he’s still in good shape and can comeback fast.”

“Nick is a hard person to predict. Only Nick knows what he will do. But if I had to guess, I’ll say that he fights again.”

“I think (Alvarez) is a good fight as well, but it’s hard to think it sells as well though. Nate’s certainly not afraid of anyone, and I personally would love to see that fight, but I’m not sure if that’s going to sell great, so that’s something Nate would have to think about.”

“Tyron Woodley and him, they were talking about putting something together at one point. It’s interesting, I think they were close to coming to terms but it didn’t quite work out. I would actually rather see Nick get that Woodley fight, that’s what I would really like to see.”
