As all of you regular fans (Phil) out there know, the staff here at It's MMAzing love themselves the Diaz brothers. With that in mind tonight marks the beginning of a new era in the professional career of Nick Diaz. After his loss to Georges St. Pierre for the UFC welterweight title in March, Nick retired and we were all left with questions; Would it stick this time? Will he never fight again? What's he going to do now?
He answered those questions for us in spades with the launch of his new promotion WAR MMA, which airs it's inaugural card tonight. It's taking place in Stockton, California (hometown of Nick Diaz) and features UFC vet and Cesar Gracie Fight Team member Daniel Roberts versus Justin Baseman in the main event. This card is also a first for this website as it will be an Official Official (yes it's that official) It's MMAzing event, with press passes and everything.
For those who can't be there in person you can stream it live for free or enter a donation, with the largest donation winning a pair of signed gloves from Nick and Nate Diaz.
