Diaz Granted Another Title Shot, But You’ll Never Guess With Who!


In a surprising turn of events the Diaz legal team has quickly reached an agreement with Zuffa, LLC. to provide Nick with another Title shot.  However since Johnny Hendricks has already been promised a shot at the Welterweight title that Georges St. Pierre currently holds the Diaz team has received special accommodations to fight Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos for the Featherweight title in what will be the first Co-ed UFC bout in history.

To ensure there aren’t any hangups at the weigh-in the fight will be held in Toronto, Canada where the Ontario Athletic Commission has also agreed to enact “Article 9″ of their  weight-class rules and regulations.  Both fighters will be allotted a series of Anabolic steroids and Diuretics to ensure each can meet weight in time for the fight.  Due to the miscommunication at UFC 158 the Ontario commission has also agreed not to count the the last two digits before the decimal point during weigh-in.  Thus allowing the combatants the flexibility to weigh-in at anywhere between 145 to 199 lbs.  So long as they do not exceed 199 lbs the Title fight for the Featherweight belt will still be valid under Ontario rules.

The Diaz camp was elated at the prospect of the opportunity and training has already begun in preparation for the fight.  Unfortunately this will not be on the main card but you will likely be able to catch the fight on the FX prelims during UFC 169.

We wish both fighters the best of luck!

Luca's core philosophy is that to win a battle every fighter must balance their mental and physical health.
