UFC: 5 Fights to Welcome Back Nick Diaz

Fight fans can rejoice because Nick Diaz has decided to return from his brief retirement. UFC President Dana White used his official Twitter account to reveal the return of the popular fighter. Diaz has signed a new deal that will allow him to appear in the Octagon at least three more times. The UFC has struggled to create stars with its current roster, so Diaz’s return comes at a great time for the promotion.

As always, Nick is interested in fighting for a UFC title; however, it will be hard to book him in such a manner coming off of two straight losses.

"I'd like to fight for the title," Diaz said in a UFC.com report. "I think that would be a big deal and worth fighting for. I want fights that will lead to a title fight. Whoever is in line and whoever has the title, that's who I'm going to be fighting.

With that in mind, these are five fight suggestions that would work to keep the Stockton, California, native busy while creating interesting contests for the fans to enjoy.
