Nick Diaz vs. Michael Bisping? 'I love that fight,' UFC boss says
Bisping would be happy to welcome Nick Diaz to 185
Steph Daniels caught with UFC middleweight Michael Bisping to talk about the tweet he made after learning that Diaz would "end his retirement for the right opportunity," and about his potential return to MMA next year following rehab for eye surgery.
"I didn't really mean any disrespect to him," said Bisping. "But I heard a rumor off a couple people that he said that he was interested in fighting me, and I know he was talking about maybe coming up to middleweight. He was also talking about retirement; the guy is pretty crazy so you never know what's true and what's not.
"A reporter... said that a fight with Michael Bisping might interest him, so I just tweeted that if he wanted to come up to 185, I'd quite happily welcome him to the division."
"It's still going to be a little time before I'm sparring or anything like that, and that's just because I want to take it really easy. Last week the doctors cleared me to get back in the gym, so I can keep myself in shape."
"I won't be able to get back to active MMA training until after Christmas. I'm working on trying to pack on some extra muscle right now. I'm just following the doctor's orders because I don't want to be in the same position again. I'm just taking it nice and easy, but hopefully at the beginning of the new year, I can book a fight.
Bisping is hated but his all around skill is underrated by everyone but him. I think his work rate would give Diaz a ton of trouble.

And the microphone smells like a beer
I think a fight with Bisping would be great. I would actually be rooting for Diaz in that one, but I think Bisping would get the win. Bisping has good takedowns and I really think his GnP is one of his best attributes.
Belcher / Diaz would be beyond fun and due to Rory and GSP not fighting it only makes sense that Nick be another notch on his belt.
I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.
I'd say the fight would be a great draw. Origenally I would think Mike would ekk out a dec, but with a long layoff and Diaz always in great shape I'd lean towards daiz. Hopefully it happens two fighters who think there title contender should fight each other and leave real contenders alone.lol.
