Yesterday the UFC tweeted that Lightweights Nate Diaz and Gray Maynard would be rematched at The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale on November 30 in Las Vegas. Now Nate Diaz has responded via Twitter:

The 28-year-old Diaz is 16-9 overall, 11-7 UFC and 0-2 in his last two bouts including a TKO loss to Josh Thomson and a decision loss in a title fight to then-champ Ben Henderson. Anthony Pettis 17-2, 4-1 UFC, took the title from Henderson via submission at UFC 164.

Maynard, 11-2-1 (1 NC) and 9-2-1 (1 NC) UFC, is coming off a TKO loss to T.J. Grant at UFC 160. Grant is set to be the first challenger to Pettis' title.
