Nick Diaz has not won a mixed martial arts (MMA) match since Oct. 2011, when he beat B.J. Penn from pillar to post en route to a unanimous decision win at UFC 137. Back-to-back losses since then, as well as a self-imposed two-year retirement, and Diaz could be back in Dana White's proverbial "title mix" if he is successful against former 185-pound champion, Anderson Silva, in the main event of UFC 183 on Jan. 31, 2015. That's according to White, who earlier this evening appeared on ESPN to discuss the Super Bowl weekend "super fight" that was announced earlier this evening. Sound about right or is White getting ahead of himself?
