Nate Diaz requests release from UFC

Maybe Nate Diaz saw Gilbert Melendez’s new UFC contract and is attempting a negotiating strategy Stockton style, because the number five-ranked UFC lightweight just requested to be released from the UFC — via Twitter:

The 28-year-old Cesar Gracie black belt has been fighting inside the Octagon since June 2007 when he defeated Manny Gamburyan to win The Ultimate Fighter season 5. He is currently 12-7 in the UFC and is coming off a first round TKO win over Gray Maynard in November, earning “Knockout of the Night” honors. Prior to that Diaz had lost two straight, including a title fight loss to then champ Benson Henderson, and a TKO loss to Josh Thomson.

What do you think, is Diaz serious about wanting to leave, or is it all part of a Cesar Gracie master plan? And don’t they have managers for this type of thing? Oh the Diaz brothers, they never have been traditional, have they.

Remember liking and sharing is good karma!
