Cesar Gracie camp: Nick Diaz won’t be fighting “Mayhem” Miller on Jan 29th

It has been revealed that Strikeforce 170 pound champion, Nick Diaz won’t be facing bitter rival, Jason “Mayhem” Miller on January 29th as many have hoped after it was revealed the loud mouth star of MTV’s “Bully Beatdown” has turned down a chance to fight for the title.

According to their official website:

“Jason “Mayhem” Miller has opted to not take a fight with Nick Diaz in January at a catchweight of 178lbs. Despite having previously fought at the 170lbs weight limit, Miller now says that he is unwilling to meet at 178 and instead wants Strikeforce’s Welterweight Champion to move up to middleweight to fight him. Miller has stated he would be willing to lose 2 pounds and fight at 183lbs. As of yet Miller has defeated none of the top Strikeforce contenders but did win a fight on MTV’s Bully Beatdown show. Strikeforce will now be searching for a new opponent for Diaz for their January card.”
