Nick Diaz: Tell Roy Jones Jr. To Buy Out My UFC Contract So We Can Fight
"If I get somebody to buy my contract out from the UFC, I'd be out here fighting too. Tell his (Jones Jr.’s) guys, buy my contract so we can fight. Get a real fight. I'd like to fight 167 (pounds) if I was fighting boxing but it's whatever. That's the weight I fought at originally, I fought like one pro fight. I have a lot of boxing experience, of course, work with a lot of different fighters, but sparring is different than fighting. Hey, I'd love to see what I can do. It's always up to Dana White, it's always up to who's got the real money."

Video: Dan Henderson on TRT after MMA, more drug testing, Cormier matchup
MMAjunkie recently sat down with UFC Fight Night 38 winner and MMA veteran Dan Henderson to discuss a variety of topics, including testosterone-replacement therapy, his desire for more drug testing, and a potential UFC 173 bout with Daniel Cormier. “A lot of people think that because I was on TRT that it’s cheating in some way,” said Henderson, who received the UFC’s final TRT exemption ahead of his recent win over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. “I’m sure if you’re naive about it and ignorant about what it is, it seems that way because it’s testosterone. But I’m not abusing it. I’m just getting it in normal range of everyone else.” Henderson, in fact, said he’s so committed to a level playing field that he wants to see more drug testing, including random year-round checks among UFC fighters.
