Nick Diaz will venture into the world of promoting MMA events next month with WAR MMA. A press release was sent out Wednesday, highlighting an event on June 22 from the Stockton Arena in Stockton, California.
Diaz, a former Strikeforce champion and contender to the UFC welterweight title, announced plans to retire following a recent loss to Georges St-Pierre. Most believe he will fight again, but this could be a step towards securing funds following his career.
The main event will feature Daniel Roberts (13-4) taking on Justin Baesman (12-4), while Antonio Banuelos (20-9-1) faces Benny Vinson (4-1) in the co-main event.
Other scheduled fights include Caleb Mitchell vs. Evan Esguerra, Roy Boughton vs. Liron Wilson, Mike Persons vs. Clayton McKinney, and Darrin Cooley vs. Cody Gibson.
