Nick Diaz said he was retired if he didn’t get a welterweight title rematch with Georges St-Pierre or middleweight champion Anderson Silva. UFC president Dana White didn’t budge and Diaz’s legal representative Jonathan Tweedale believes it’s permanent unless titles change hands over the next few years.
“[If] Anderson is long retired, GSP is retired, there’s a new welterweight champ that’s held the belt for a couple years, who knows,” said Tweedale on The MMA Hour. “You can never predict the future. But as of now, he’s retired, and I don’t see that changing anytime in the imminent future.”
Diaz has recently ventured into starting his own promotion called WAR MMA. The first show is set for June 22 from the Stockton Arena in California.
The former Strikeforce welterweight champion is 26-9. He’s 2-1 in his second UFC run.
