Nick Diaz showed up in Dallas this weekend to taunt Johny Hendricks as he struggled to make weight (hilarious vine vid below) Friday and then again to hold court Saturday night after UFC 171 with reporters. Much of what Diaz said in an impromtu scrum late Saturday night was characteristically vague and cryptic but he was clear on one point.
"I'm ready to fight," the serially retired Diaz said.
Diaz has not fought since losing a lop-sided decision to Georges St. Pierre in March, 2013. He recently reportedly turned down a rematch with Carlos Condit.
Now, the Stockton trouble maker is ready to step back into the Octagon. And, despite not having fought in so long, Diaz says that the past year has included plenty of quality training.
"I've had pretty good training this year, regardless of no fights, no camps. I've jumped in and out of camps," Diaz said.
