Ronda Rousey: Nick Diaz Will Fight Again

UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has gone rounds with Nick Diaz during practice sessions in California.

So when Rousey was asked about the status of the one-time UFC contender during a recent interview on FOX Sports Live, it came with more importance than just a casual observer.

“I think he will (return to fight in 2014),” Rousey stated. “Nick’s been fighting for a really long time. This sport puts a lot of miles on you quickly.

“If he feels he needs a rest…you can’t fight for anyone other than yourself. You can’t fight sooner than you feel like you should.”

Diaz retired after a loss to Georges St-Pierre, much like he did following a defeat at the hands of Carlos Condit. UFC president Dana White recently stated he asked Diaz to return and face Condit again, but the ex-Strikeforce champion turned the bout down.

Rousey is slated to defend her title this Saturday at UFC 168 against Miesha Tate.
