"We’re trying to put Nick Diaz together,” said Mayhem during a recent Joe Rogan podcast. “We got a little grudge match.”

While nothing is set in stone at this point, Mayhem indicated that the if the fight was to happen, it would likely happen in October.

I don't know anyone who would dislike this fight. This is good matchmaking. Even if there wasn't bad blood this would be a great fight.

Nick Diaz has been fighting decent, but not elite, competition since he left the UFC. Jason Miller may not be elite, but he's no pushover, and this is the best fight Diaz has had since him time in the UFC. I really like this fight.

These two will create some epic verbal warfare. Two of the most unique talkers in MMA and they actually dislike each other. Couldn't get much better than that.

Love the fight but still wanting a Nick Diaz vs. KJ Noons rematch. Can understand why they are putting this together after what happened on national TV though. Bet it's on there next CBS card.

Oct will be cbs fights. I could see the card

Mayhem vs diaz
Cyborg vs toughill for womens title
Melendez vs either fancy pants or eddie alvarez
Henderson vs babulu.

Wild card would be overeem vs werdum if strikeforce can get both guys to
Sign the damm contract

I think he'll walk through Jason Miller in the striking and might be able to choke him on the ground.

You don't tap Miller, but I assume bu the time Diaz hits the ground Miller will be rocked.

I wish they did have someone elite for Diaz... I wish Dream would do another WW tourney and Diaz would be included.

This should be epic. I hope Mayhem gets revenge on Diaz for the mugging . . . .

He has fought the best that could be given to him by everyone not called the UFC, and in multiple weight classes (3 if I am not mistaken). This will be really good!!

Miller has got a really good chin and has the edge in the takedown department, Diaz has the edge in the striking, I give Mayhem a slight edge in the submission department. I think Mayhem would take a decision, this is not what I expected when I first looked at this fight but, Mayhem has all the little tricks to win a decision against Diaz, who is good at surviving off his back, but not so good at getting up. This actually looks like a bad match for Diaz.

I cant see either fighter getting into trouble on the ground.

I think you have to favor Mayhem here because he has the takedowns and sub defense.

I can see Mayhem winning this if he uses his TDs to control Nick. I agree with Pookie, I don't see either being in trouble on the ground. Its a good fight whoever the winner ends up being.
