- Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has mentioned a possible return fight with Nick Diaz through his manager. Now, Diaz is letting everyone know that he is interested, as well.
During a recent episode of "UFC Tonight," Ariel Helwani reported that Diaz would accept a fight with Silva if the money was right. Diaz retired after a loss to Georges St-Pierre, and has turned down multiple fight requests by the UFC.
Silva, who suffered a broken leg in late 2013 during a loss to Chris Weidman, has targeted early 2015 for his return to the Octagon.
- Johny Hendricks isn't thinking about Georges St-Pierre for one second. Since winning the UFC welterweight title from Robbie Lawler, "Bigg Rigg" has cleared his mind of the 2013 loss to GSP.
St-Pierre vacated the title in December, announcing he was leaving MMA. While he did not state he was retiring, the Canadian has yet to confirm plans to compete again. He suffered a knee injury in training that resulted in surgery.
"I'd love to have a rematch, but if he never came back, it wouldn't bother me," said Hendricks, during a recent interview on UFC Tonight. "I'm trying to make my own legacy."
