Nick Diaz Fighting In January, Not Against Jason Miller

Fans wondering when and where Nick Diaz will be fighting again won't have to wait very long.

According to a post a the Gracie Fighter website, Diaz will be fighting for Strikeforce in January but it won't be against Jason “Mayhem” Miller as some had been hoping:

“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.”
