PostSubject: Report: Diaz to fight at 155 lbs. in EliteXC   Fri 20 Jul 2007, 7:26 pm



The web site GracieFighter.com is reporting that both Nick Diaz and Jake Shields will be fighting for EliteXC in September.

The site reports that Shields will continue to fight at welterweight but that Diaz will be fighting at lightweight. Diaz competed in the UFC as a welterweight and at 161 lbs. when he took on Takanori Gomi in Pride this past February.

The cut to 155 lbs. will no doubt be a steep one for Diaz but the move appears to be necessary since both he and Shields are teammates at Cesar Gracie’s Academy.

In regard to Shields, apparently EliteXC is moving towards the introduction of a welterweight title. The site goes on to say that he could be one fight away from a title fight.
