After proposing a challenge to rematch with Nick Diaz in a rematch, Anderson Silva may never get that opportunity. According to the latest rumors, Diaz has seemingly stepped away from his return to the UFC. This comes after a 2-year suspension that kept him out of the octagon.
Diaz was once known as a possible future UFC champion after his stint in Strikeforce, where he won their Welterweight title until the company was bought out by the UFC.
Diaz has wins over fighters such as Chris Lytle, Robbie Lawler, KJ Noons, Takanori Gomi, Frank Shamrock, Paul Daley and B.J. Penn. Despite never being able to hold any gold in the UFC, Diaz is considered to be one of the best MMA fighters inside of the UFC.
After Silva’s challenge was made. It was Gilbert Melendez who stated that Diaz has officially retired from MMA. Diaz went on Instagram and stated he no longer wants to hurt anyone, but enjoys the party scene more.
