The contracts have been officially inked as Nick Diaz will look to defend his welterweight title against Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos on Jan. 29 in San Jose, CA.

Diaz (23-7-1)  will likely be the huge favorite as he currently carries eight straight wins in the cage against top opponents, with seven of eight of the wins by finishes.  The challenger Santos (17-3) currently carries a two win-streak, defeating  Daniel Zarate, and Marius Zaromskis via TKO strikes in the first round back in June.

The title fight is expected to serve as the main bout alongside another title fight between middleweight champion Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Robbie Lawler. Also on the card will be former NFL star, Herschel Walker vs Scott Carson, and Roger Gracie vs. Trevor Prangley.
