Scott Coker: Nick Diaz vs. Jason “Mayhem” Miller could happen next year

Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker has revealed we could see the promotions welterweight champion, Nick Diaz take on rival, Jason “Mayhem” Miller at some point next year.

Coker, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“It’s something that we’re definitely looking at. You have to look at it from all different angles. Would it be a fun fight to promote? Sure. I think we should wait until the beginning of the year, and let’s have another conversation on that because with Miller and Diaz I just couldn’t imagine the extra security that I’d probably need to get to make that fight happen.”

“Nick, he could also fight some catchweight fights. I think there’s some fights ahead of him that we would love to promote. He just came off a pretty brutal fight with K.J., so let him rest till the beginning of the year, and we can start having conversations about his next opponent, maybe the turning of 2011.”

“For Mayhem, we’ve got some great fights for him ahead. We’re going to promote all those fights. I saw him fight in Japan against (Kazushi) Sakuraba, I was pretty impressed. I think he’s getting better and better with every fight.”
