Nick Diaz vs. Jason “Mayhem” Miller Off for Strikeforce in January

Welterweight champ Nick Diaz won’t face rival Jason “Mayhem” Miller at Strikeforce’s January event, as Diaz’s Cesar Gracie camp announced overnight that Miller is “unwilling to meet at 178 and instead wants [Diaz] to move up to middleweight to fight him.”

The potential matchup has been talked about since Diaz and Miller brawled in the cage at April’s “Strikeforce: Nashville” on CBS, but has failed to come together as Diaz won’t move up past 178-pounds and Miller refuses to drop down from 185.

Strikeforce must now find a new opponent to meet Diaz (23-7) on Jan. 29 in San Jose, while Miller (24-7) could also remain on the likely Showtime-televised card against a new opponent.
