Nate Diaz vs. Marcus Davis at UFC 118, pending Diaz’ fine payment

Ultimate Fighter season five winner, Nate Diaz is set to pay the $7,500 fine likely issued by the Tennessee Athletic Commission for his part in the Strikeforce: Nashville brawl in April in order to fight Marcus Davis at UFC 118 in August.

Cesar Gracie, speaking via MMAJunkie.com, said:

“We just want to get this past us, and probably we’ll pay the fine and move on. They could probably not let him fight in Tennessee in the future, but they can’t suspend him from fighting.”
