UFC Fight Night UFN - 20 weigh-in: Maynard and Diaz ready for rematch?


Nate Diaz won Season 5 of "The Ultimate Fighter" but he's clearly been passed by a guy that he beat earlier on the show. Gray Maynard was no match for Diaz's submission skills in the middle of 2007 and couldn't impede his trip to the TUF 5 Finale. Now the tables are turned. Maynard hasn't lost in UFC tries and now it's Diaz (11-4, 6-2 UFC) trying to stop his opponent's trip to what could amount to a 155-pound division finale. With a win in The Ultimate Fight Night main event, Maynard (8-0, 6-0 UFC) could earn a shot at UFC lightweight champ B.J. Penn.


Today's weigh-in at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va., went off without a hitch. Not a single fighter had an issue making weight. The only drama came when Rick Story got a little froggy in the face of his opponent Jesse Lennox. Dana White, donning a slick bomber jacket, had to play on-stage security guard.
