Nick Diaz to fight Mike Aina on Sept. 15 Nickdiazufc_jan1907 is reporting that Nick Diazís first opponent since being suspended for six months by the Nevada State Athletic Commission following a positive drug test for marijuana will be ďIronĒ Mike Aina.
The two will square off against each other on September 15 in Honolulu on an EliteXC card televised by Showtime.

Diaz trains with Cesar Gracieís camp in California while Aina is a member of B.J. Pennís camp in Hawaii. The match will be the second of two Gracie vs. Penn matchup on the card with Jake Shields (Gracie) and Renato ďCharutoĒ Verrisimo (Penn) being the other.

Aina does not have a lot of name recognition and his record on paper isnít the best (8-5-1 or 9-6-1 depending on where you go) so I am expecting that the announcement will be met with disappointment by some.

However, I think the matchup could surprise a lot of people. Aina is a tough dude with good Jiu-Jitsu. But in the limited footage Iíve seen of him, he also likes to brawl in a style similar to the way Diaz does.

The fight will be contested at 160 pounds and Aina will enter as a heavy underdog. In spite of that fact, if the two decide to stand and trade then I think we could see a very exciting fight.
