UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping Wants Nick Diaz Money Fight

UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping Wants Nick Diaz Money Fight

Fresh off defending his middleweight against Dan Henderson at UFC 204 in Manchester, England, redeeming his UFC 100 loss in the process, Michael Bisping is now targeting a fight against cult-hero Nick Diaz.

Bisping was also eyeing-up a lucrative bout with ex-UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre but contractual issues are preventing the Canadians return to the Octagon.

It appears the 37-year-old kingpin now wants to tempt Nick into a fight after his suspension came up earlier this year. Speaking to Sirius XM via MMA Fighting, he said;

"I'll fight anybody as long as it makes sense business-wise. I'm not gonna risk my reputation and my title against some chump, but if there's a lot of money on the line, then I'll do it. If Nick Diaz wants to go at UFC 206, formally, officially, I invite you to sign the bout agreement. Let's do it."

While keeping tabs on the unofficial middleweight tournament involving former UFC champs Chris Weidman, Luke Rockhold as well as Yoel Romero and 'Jacare' Souza.

"And then after that, whoever wins more impressively of the top four middleweights - Rockhold, Weidman, Yoel, and Souza, I'll fight after this. That will happen. 100%."

The elder statesmen of the fighting Diaz clan hasn't registered a UFC win since his unanimous decision victory over BJ Penn at UFC 137 in 2011, following back-to-back defeats to Carlos Condit then GSP before a no-contest against Anderson Silva.

In spite of that, the return of big bro Diaz would garner huge buzz thus generating a shitload of money just exactly what the champ is after. We'd watch that's for sure.
