Bisping Lays Down Terms For Potential Nick Diaz Retirement Fight

With Nick Diaz officially off suspension, and Michael Bisping looking for a suitable opponent for his retirement bout, rumors started circulating this week that the two are in negotiations for a throwdown.

However, Bisping killed those rumors while speaking to his podcast Audience on Wednesday, but he did lay down terms for fighting the Stockton mega-star, stating that if Nick wants to fight, do it at 195 pounds.

Here’s the snip:

“No, I’m not fighting Nick Diaz at all. It’s total bulls**t. I haven’t spoken to the UFC about anything. They haven’t come to me. I’m probably retired, I just haven’t made it official.

“It’s bulls**t. I haven’t heard a single thing. The UFC haven’t reached out, management haven’t reached out, no one has said anything. As I said, I haven’t made my mind up completely but I’m very, very close to retirement.”

“I’m probably retired. I know I’m driving everyone crazy with this. Certainly reporters ask me all the time but I don’t know. If something comes along, great but I need to make my mind up and make that official and move on with the rest of my life or get a fight. I was supposed to fight in London, it never happened. Book me a fight and let’s go. If not, f**k it, let’s move on.“
