UFC officials today announced a pair of new matchups for March’s UFC Fight Night 62 event, with featherweights Andre Fili (14-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) vs. Godofredo Pepey (11-3 MMA, 3-3 UFC) and women’s bantamweights Shayna Baszler (15-9 MMA, 0-1 UFC) vs. Amanda Nunes (9-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC).
LAS VEGAS -- Nick Diaz went to the airport Tuesday in Sacramento with the intention of getting on a plane for Las Vegas. His bags were checked and Diaz carried on to the gate.
But then he turned around and went back home. Diaz missed his flight and then no-showed UFC 183 open workouts Wednesday, causing a stir. Anderson Silva, his opponent Saturday at the MGM Grand, said it was "unfortunate for fans."
A planned featherweight rematch between Thiago Tavares (19-5-1 MMA, 9-5-1 UFC) and Nik Lentz (25-6-2 MMA, 9-3-1 UFC) has been scrapped, as injury has forced Tavares to withdraw from the planned UFC Fight Night 60 matchup.
While UFC officials confirmed news of Nick Diaz not appearing at the scheduled UFC 183 open workouts earlier today, there are separate reports that suggest that he's been in Las Vegas for several days.
