11:07 AM ET 02.24 | Former Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz has been "retired" from mixed martial arts after suffering back-to-back losses to Carlos Condit and Georges St-Pierre, but he appeared open to a return over the weekend while talking to reporters backstage at UFC 170. Diaz would be willing to return to the UFC to compete inside of the octagon, but only if he is able to get a crack at the title. Unfortunately for Diaz, UFC president Dana White said that the Stockton native is not even in the title picture. Without Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre for the foreseeable future, the UFC is in desperate need of a star. We will need to see the numbers from UFC 170 to see how Ronda Rousey can carry the torch, but there is no denying a Diaz return would be among the biggest fights of the year.
