Nick Diaz Confirms Retirement Unless He Gets GSP Rematch or Anderson Silva

Former Strikeforce welterweight champion, Nick Diaz has confirmed that he will be hanging up his gloves for good after briefly coming out of retirement if he’s not granted a rematch with Georges St-Pierre or a super fight with Anderson Silva.

On Tuesday, MMA journalist Ariel Helwani appeared on UFC Tonight with an update from the Diaz camp:

“As of right now, they have yet to file that complaint. I spoke to Jonathan Tweedale, who is a legal representative for Nick Diaz, and he told me they are ready and willing to do so, but first they want to hear back from the Quebec commission. He has requested all the information surrounding how they came to this decision.

Why did they decide to waive any decimal points if they were already in place on the day of the weigh-ins and not cut them? He wants to know everything about it. Once they get that information and deem that something fishy went on, then they’ll file the complaint.”

Diaz has now lost back-to-back fights inside the octagon dropping five-round unanimous decisions to both Carlos Condit and Georges St-Pierre.
