Nate Diaz Likely For Return Back To Lightweight Division

It appears Nate Diaz stint in the UFC's Welterweight division has come to an end after his loss to Rory MacDonald at UFC 129.

Post fight, Cesar Gracie, Diaz trainer spoke with MMAMania.com and explained why Diaz moved in weight in the first place and the plan to bring him back to 155lbs.

“Nate Diaz didn't look too good. I'm gonna be the first one to say it. He looked lethargic out there and he's been asking me to go back to 155 for some time now. Frankie Edgar is the champion over there and he's the student of a good friend of mine. Nathan was one of the contenders at 155 so we brought him up to 170 but it looks like we'll probably bring him back down to 155 where he belongs. “
