Nick Diaz awaits word on his next fight. His win over Thomas Denny was a crucial test for him. He needed to prove he could make weight and pass California’s stringent anti-marijuana drug policy. Diaz easily made weight and passed the drug test. His recent wins have convinced EliteXC that his next fight should be a rematch with KJ Noons at the October 4th CBS show. However it is still unclear if KJ’s camp will take the fight.
Should they refuse then Diaz could be cleared to fight Mach Sakurai in Dream at the end of September. Diaz has wanted to fight Sakurai for the Dream Championship Belt, but a stumbling block to this fight has been that as of now Dream has still not paid him a cent for the last fight he participated in for their organization almost 3 months ago.
