Brazil Octagon Girls On Beach (Video), Dana White On Diaz Return, Will Matt Brown Get Title Shot?

- UFC Brazil Octagon girls Camila Oliveira and Jhenny Andrade took a break from a recent photo shoot to enjoy a walk along the beach. Check out the two in the video above, discussing their respective careers.

Both Oliveira and Andrade can be seen each week on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3, and will likely be Octagon-side for The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale later this month.

- Those fans holding out hope to see Nick Diaz return to the Octagon likely didn't enjoy what UFC president Dana White had to say over the weekend. Diaz announced his retirement after a loss to Georges St-Pierre, and has reportedly turned down several offers by the promotion to return.

When White was asked about the prospects of a Diaz-Matt Brown fight on the FOX Sports 1 post-fight show, he stated, "There's no sign of Diaz. Until they call me, both are not fighting. Nate will come back before Nick. Nick is still saying he's retired."

Nate Diaz has been out of action since a 2013 victory over Gray Maynard, as he has been asking for a new contract after the win. He signed a new deal prior to challenging then-UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson for the belt.

- Matt Brown's next fight following a TKO victory over Erick Silva at UFC Fight Night 40 will not be for the title. Johny Hendricks, the current champion, remains sidelined recovering from bicep surgery.

Brown asked to be the next contender, and while that could come to fruition for the winner of his last seven, UFC president Dana White has another opponent in mind.

"I was just talking to him about that," said White, during an interview on FOX Sports 1. "I told him, 'Let me get home and figure it out.' He's not there yet because he was injured. We're going to give him something big, maybe Hector Lombard is next."

Brown was scheduled to face former interim UFC champion Carlos Condit last December before a back injury knocked him out. Lombard, an ex-Bellator champion, is coming off a victory over Jake Shields.
