Nick Diaz may still be on the ropes as far as a return to the Octagon is concerned, but the Stockton fighter will return to action later this year. Diaz has been announced as a competitor at the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo, set for May 12 from Long Beach, California.
Diaz will face Braulio Estima according to a report by MMAFighting.com. Diaz is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt under Cesar Gracie, but has not competed in a BJJ event in a few years.
Estima has won several Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournaments over the years, most recently topping Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza at the 2011 Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling Championship. He is expected to make his MMA debut later this year.
