Nick Diaz recently revealed on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show that he is eyeing UFC return next year against BMF champion Jorge Masvidal. Earlier this month at UFC 244 at the Madison Square Garden in New York, Masvidal defeated Nate Diaz via TKO.
The TKO [doctor’s stoppage] was a highly controversial one. But Nick is ready to avenge his brother’s loss and was also unhappy about the comments Masvidal made regarding his brother about baptizing him.
“All I see is f*cking dollar signs right now,” Diaz said (via MMA News). “It’s not on me. You wanna talk about baptizing my younger brother, that’s on you. I never had nothing disrespectful to say, but you don’t talk about baptizing my younger brother. So you’re already in a f*cked up position if you fight with me. You don’t f*cking talk about baptizing someone’s younger brother. That’s my baby brother, you don’t talk like that to nobody. So who rides on who’s side?

“You wanna say that? You wanna do that? You wanna walk? That’s on you,” Diaz added. “I can relate to you, that’s why I ain’t mad at you. But if you wanna walk, that’s on you.” (H/T – BJPenn.com)
Nick Diaz also has a preferred venue in mind for his return. He said that he wants to fight Masvidal at the AT&T stadium which is one of the biggest stadiums in the United States and has hosted numerous boxing events feature stars like Canelo Alvarez, Manny Pacquiao, Mike Garcia etc.
