No, Diaz will go up to 185 to fight Silva and Mayhem Miller will come out and not shut up about it ever.
Mayhem would be more than justified in complaining if Nick agrees to move up in weight.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.

There are plenty of lighter fighters who would have no interest fighting Mayhem at 185 but would give up a significant size disadvantage just for the opportunity to share the octagon with arguably the greatest ever. To some that may sound hypocritical but the difference in the risk/reward ratio of both scenarios could not be further apart.
Doctor clears Anderson Silva to begin sparring, cautions 'Spider' to 'start slowly'
Dr. Marcio Tannure talks to MMA Fighting:
"He was already cleared by his doctors in the United States, but he likes to hear my opinion because I was with him in every step of his recovery, including the surgery. There's no exact recovery timetable for this type of injury. It could take three months or one year, but he had a good recovery and we're happy. It's going as we expected. It would be really premature to say something now, he hasn't even sparred yet."
I guess Dr. Tannure missed this video.
Silva (33-6) has been releasing a steady stream of recovery videos on social media, which in turn has led mixed martial arts (MMA) fans to speculate as to when "The Spider" might return. While preliminary estimates put him back inside the cage in early 2015, his physician cautions him to start slowly.
"His recovery was great, but now we have to work on his mind and get rid of the mental block. It could take a while, maybe not. It would be really hard to say right now he can or can't fight this year. It's not the moment, and he's the one that is going to feel it. He has to start slowly. It still is really hard for him to work on that. He feels unsafe now, maybe sees some images on his head, so we can't demand too much from him right now. That's the toughest barrier to overcome. He will only lose this fear with training, and then he will know if he's ready to fight or not."
And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus
