Nick Diaz, who is signed with ProElite, has requested to face Frank Shamrock as soon as possible. After a spectacular win against PrideFC champion Takanori Gomi in February, Diaz seems intent on enrolling himself for higher profile fights. With both fighters fighting in the same organization, this fight seems the logical next step in what would be an MMA fan's dream come true!
"I watched his last fight and no disrespect intended, but I think I would whoop his ass.", stated Diaz. A formal offer of intent has been delivered to the promoters to set this fight up and now we await their response.
Nick is set to debut on the next EliteXC event, which is scheduled for September 1st. This was conveniently scheduled just days after when Nick's NSAC suspension ends. The location of the fight has not been determined, but Gina Carano vs. Jan Finney and Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett vs. Victor "Joe Boxer" Valenzuela are both set to take place, after their original June dates at K-1/EliteXC and Strikeforce/EliteXC respectively, were postponed due to health (Carano) and legal (Krazy Horse) problems.
