Although a Josh Koscheck-Nick Diaz bout seems to be where both parties are heading, Diaz has a number of top contenders available if/when he decides to return to the UFC.
Names like Koscheck, Jon Fitch and Demian Maia are all possibilities that would be a big-time fight for Diaz's return. The Stockton-based fighter is well-versed in all areas of MMA, but how would he stack up against Maia?
The Brazilian is the definition of a jiu-jitsu wizard in MMA and has the grappling equivalent to a knockout punch with his BJJ. Could Diaz hang with Maia on the ground, or would he look to keep it on the feet? You look at the tape and decide for yourself.
