Nate Diaz to face Thomson at 'UFC on Fox 7' | CSN Bay Area



Former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson will return to the octagon on April 20 against Stockton’s Nate Diaz at "UFC on Fox 7."

Fighting out of the American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, Thomson (19-5) is coming off a controversial split decision loss to Gilbert Melendez last May.

Diaz (16-8) will be looking to bounce back from his unanimous decision loss to current UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson back in December.

Tickets to “UFC on Fox 7” at HP Pavilion in San Jose go on sale Feb. 15.
Should be fireworks, but I think Nate takes this one. I doubt he'll finish Thomson though.

And the fight takes place on 4/20 so Nate should be in full effect.
