Nate Diaz remains one of the most legitimate fighters to have ever stepped foot inside the Octagon. Diaz last competed against Jorge Masvidal for the “BMF” title at UFC 244 back in November 2019. He lost the match via doctor’s stoppage, but he is far from finished in the fight game. Diaz also has lofty ambitions after retiring from MMA.
At UFC 263, Nate Diaz finally made his return to the Octagon as he squared off against Leon Edwards. Unfortunately for Diaz, his return didn’t quite go the way that he wanted to as Diaz lost the fight. Nate Diaz had also made it clear that he wants to compete in the Octagon again within the next few months.
Many fans also wonder what will become of Nate Diaz in the UFC as he only has one more match left in his contract. It was then said that he is likely to sign a new contract with the UFC.
While speaking with TMZ Sports, Nate Diaz revealed that he wants to retire from MMA after duking it out with Dustin Poirier in his next fight.
“I would like to fight Dustin Poirier. Like now. Like I’ve been trying to. If there’s any mix-up it’s him, and them, and the game. I want the fight now. What’s up Dana White? Let’s get this retirement fight cracking so I can get out of this fight game. I’m done with it.”
Nate Diaz also recently revealed a fight with Dustin Poirier won’t happen. It remains to be seen whether Nate Diaz truly will end his MMA career or not in the end.
