Elite XC Signs Nick Diaz

Elite XC Live Events President Gary Shaw announced yesterday at a news conference that the promotion has signed former UFC welterweight contender Nick Diaz.

Diaz’s manager and BJJ coach Cesar Gracie confirmed the signing yesterday and said that Diaz should be making his Elite XC debut sometime in May.

As with all of the other small MMA promotions, Gracie also added that Diaz would be able to fight in other promotions while under contract. That was a stipulation probably put in because of the postponed Gracie Fighting Championships event that Diaz was supposed to compete in this weekend and may be called on to in the future if the event is rescheduled.
