Nate Diaz (11-5 MMA, 6-3 UFC) moves up a weight class to fight Rory Markhman (16-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC) next month on the preliminary card of UFC 111.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) first reported the likelihood of the bout last month, and UFC executives recently made it official.

UFC 111 takes place at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. The fight card, which includes two title fights, will be complete once a previously reported welterweight bout of Thiago Alves vs. Jon Fitch is officially announced for the main card.

This should be kept standing. I think Diaz has better technical boxing but not as much power like Markham, especially with kicks. Diaz is a brown belt and should try and use more of his jiu-jitsu like we saw against Pellgrino and Robinson when he was finishing fights. Now he stands and trades but he's gone to decision a lot more recently.
