    Nick Diaz is not done with fighting after all.

    A tumultuous year that saw Diaz lose an interim UFC welterweight title fight followed by a year long suspension from the sport after a positive drug test for marijuana made the Stockton, Calif. native opt for retirement instead of continuing on with the fight game.

    A few months later however according to his manager and trainer Cesar Gracie, Diaz is back in the gym, working hard and will return to fighting when his suspension is up.

    “For the last couple of months I’ve watched Nick begin to frequent the gym more and more. He’s training harder now than he has for many of his fights. It was obvious that training and fighting is in his DNA. It is who he is,” Gracie wrote today on his website GracieFighter.com.

    “This week we had a great talk and he made it clear to me that he is ready to get back to the cage. Nick Diaz will return.”
