Controversial MMA Fighter Nick Diaz set is compete again, but this time it will be in a Jiu-Jitsu Super Fight at the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo on May 12th in Long Beach, California. According to Diaz’s Trainer Cesar Gracie,No Opponent has been signed yet but Diaz is confirmed to compete. Diaz, a black belt under Gracie, hasn’t competed in a BJJ match in over two years. Gracie said the UFC, “usually doesn’t want (Nick) competing (in BJJ) if it’s near a fight, (but) he has no fight lined up.”
Gracie added that he expects to find out this week when Diaz’s hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his positive drug test following his UFC 143 loss to Carlos Condit will take place. He teased last week via Twitter that Diaz’s MMA days aren’t over, despite retiring following the loss to Condit.
The first-ever World Jiu-Jitsu Expo will take place at the Long Beach Convention Center. In addition to the Diaz super-fight, fans attending the Expo can take part in free seminars with BJJ stars Renzo Gracie, Braulio Estima, Roger Gracie, Robert Drysdale, Rodrigo Comprido and Andre Galvao.
