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."
