But assuming Jackson eventually is able to return to the UFC, who cou read news >>

Combined with little care for skill level, you could have a person that has been fighting professionally for years taking on a guy that just stepped out of the gym for the first day, or read news >>

When Nick Diaz retired in March 2013 fresh from dropping a lopsided unanimous decision to then-UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, he told reporters that the only fights to could coax him back into the cage would be a rematch against the Canadian or a superfight against Anderson Silva. At the time, Diaz's requests were largely scoffed at. This was a guy who'd lost two straight outings; he wasn't exactly in the position to barter for another big opportunity. But a funny thing happened in read news >>
