Nate Diaz (11-5 MMA, 6-3 UFC) is not leaving the lightweight division permanently — he just wants a break.

Diaz, who came up short Monday night in a headlining fight with Gray Maynard (9-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 20, slammed his performance and said he wants to explore his options a weight class up.

"It's just a possibility," Diaz today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I'm not going to permanently go, but I could probably jump around. If I want to make (155 pounds) all year long and be starving and miserable for that long, I'd probably want to get paid more. Until I start getting paid more, maybe I should ease up a weight class."

I guess it makes sense if he doesn't wanna feel drained all the time and starve himself if he doesn't feel he's getting payed enough. It definitely won't have any easier fights but at least there would be a lot of entertaining fights for Diaz at either weight.
