Video: Ronda Rousey predicts Nick Diaz will return to UFC in 2014

Matchmaking is the easy part. It's getting him to actually say "yes" to a fight that seems to be the problem.

"Nick's been fighting for a really really long time. I've only been fighting for three years, I mean, he's been fighting I think for over a decade now. This sport puts a lot of miles on you very quickly. If he feels like he needs a rest and to take a break, you can't fight for anyone other than yourself. You can't fight sooner than you feel like you should. It really is a life and death situation out there and you have to do it when you feel it's right. Yeah, I think he will [return to fighting]."

UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey dishes some dirt on her West Coast homie Nick Diaz, who recently turned down a Carlos Condit fight -- among others -- to kick it retirement style from his luxury pad in the 209. Diaz was a major player in the 170-pound division and may be able to get back into the "mix" now that Georges St. Pierre has (temporarily) called it a career. That, of course, is predicated on him actually accepting a fight, something "Rowdy" believes will happen as we head into 2014. How about you?
