At UFC 148: Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen II, Jim Norton and Robert Kelly of Opie and Anthony fame caught up with rising star of the Lightweight division Nate Diaz. Coming off a failed experiment at 170 lbs, Diaz returned to form with three dominating victories over Takanori Gomi, Donald Cerrone, and Jim Miller. When asked whether or not he would consider going back to his The Ultimate Fighter roots as a coach, Diaz responded:
I'm down for whatever's going on. I just want to fight the best guys in the world. I want whatever is the best opportunity, the best fight. Coaching would be cool, maybe.
While not an emphatic, "Yes" Nate is obviously looking out for the best options to make the most of his time with the UFC. Diaz is expected to challenge the winner of Benson Henderson vs. Frankie Edgar who will rematch at UFC 150 on August 11 at the Pepsi Center in Denver, CO.
