Nick Diaz to Fight on CBS?

Over at a messageboard I visit a lot, one of the posters just received this via email:

Doing the show in Stockton only makes sense if Nick Diaz will be fighting on the card.  I know that would kill his fight with Sakurai, but I expect that he would definitely drop that booking in order to fight Noons on CBS. 

[UPDATE] by Nick Thomas:

The website GracieFighter.com has revealed that a planned welterweight title bout between Hayato Sakurai and Nick Diaz that had been scheduled for July 21 in Osaka, Japan during DREAM.5, has been canceled by EliteXC.

GracieFighter.com, a site owned and operated by Diaz’s trainer, Cesar Gracie, indicated that EliteXC made the decision to cancel the bout due to "contractual obligations."

While no official announcement has been made, multiple sources have informed Five Ounces of Pain that rematch between Diaz and K.J. Noons for Noons’ EliteXC lightweight title is expected to be added to the promotion’s next primetime broadcast on CBS on July 26.
