Cesar Gracie: UFC has offered Nick Diaz a new contract and a fight

USA TODAY Sports

The manager of controversial UFC Welterweight Nick Diaz says the organization has offered Nick Diaz a "neat" opportunity.

Former Strikeforce champ Nick Diaz putatively retired following his back-to-back UFC losses to Carlos Condit and Georges St. Pierre. Diaz's next move was mounting his own regional MMA promotion, WAR MMA. However the 29-year-old might not be quite as done with being inside the Octagon as all that.

Cesar Gracie, Diaz's long-time coach and sometimes manager appared on BJPenn.com radio and here's what he had to say:

"As far as his fighting and everything. He's been in Vegas, he just got back a couple of days ago. There is an offer on the table, that's all I can say. It's something everyone is looking at right now and discussing with him. Dana has offered him a fight. There is an offer on the table, I can't say who it is, but it's kind of neat I think. But no decision's have been made for sure."

Since his loss to GSP, Diaz has expressed interest in a Middleweight fight against Anderson Silva or the man who beat Silva, Chris Weidman.
