The question isn’t so much why, Ben Fowlkes says, but how Nick Diaz pulled off lining up the biggest superfight in UFC history.

Diaz is that classic mystery wrapped in an enigma, yet he was able to get a fight with Anderson Silva after a whole bunch of time off.

Fowlkes delves deep into the Diaz psyche in his latest weekly video.

Diaz meets Silva, who returns from a broken leg, in the main event of UFC 183 on Jan. 31 in Las Vegas.

Check out the video above.
