Nick Diaz has not won a mixed martial arts (MMA) match since Oct. 2011, when he beat B.J. Penn from pillar to post en route to a unanimous decision win at UFC 137. Back-to-back losses since then, as well as a self-imposed two-year retirement, and Diaz could be back in Dana White's proverbial "title mix" if he is successful against former 185-pound champion, Anderson Silva, in the main event of UFC 183 on Jan. 31, 2015.

I agree with above statement. But, all my friends would be first to tell me that I am a Diaz but hugger and while that's true I'm also a realist. If andy boxes nick he will lose all day. Tun it into a Kickboxing clinic, diaz goes down. Straight clinch game, Diaz loses and bjj match, that is intriguing. Only way diaz wins is a pure boxing match.
War Diaz

I don't think he should get a title shot.

But hey I get it
Only way to have Diaz sign the dotted line
When you mention title shot.

For some reason Silva is still listed as the #1 contender at MW. I don't have a problem with this.

Pretty odd.

Anderson is coming off two losses and a horrific injury. He might never be the same fighter again.

Diaz is coming off two losses and a 2 year retirement.

Nothing in this equation says title shot.
