Video: Nick Diaz Wants Someone to Buy Out His UFC Contract So He Can Pursue Boxing Career


(Courtesy of The Boxing Channel and Fight Hub TV)

The sort-of-retired UFC welterweight Nick Diaz was in attendance at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday to witness Manny Pacquiao reclaim his WBO welterweight title by defeating Timothy Bradley by unanimous decision.  Diaz spoke with The Boxing Channel about Pacquiao’s performance, his fighting plans, and his opinion of the UFC 171 main event between Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler.

Following Diaz’s recent commentary on his UFC contract, it may come as no surprise that he’d like for someone to buy out his UFC contract so he can shift his focus to the sweet science.
