02:08 PM ET 10.15 | Former Strikeforce champion and UFC welterweight title challenger Nick Diaz is currently enjoying the cozy life of retirement, but his teammate Gilbert Melendez has confirmed what we all had believed - Diaz will return to the octagon with the right opportunity. As it currently stands, Diaz has no interest in fighting lower level competition, but he still has the itch to fight and would welcome a bout against a top contender. One interesting bout would be Diaz vs. Michael Bisping once he is healthy enough to return. This is an idea that UFC President Dana White has thrown around in the past, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the former welterweight return to the octagon a weight class higher to take on the British superstar. However, until a big fight is offered, Diaz will remain retired.
