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.
Dustin Poirier previously claimed that he agreed to a fight with Nate Diaz on short notice. Nate Diaz then stated that the UFC themselves doesn’t want him to square off against Dustin Poirier. Nate Diaz took to Twitter and accused Dana White of slow-rolling his last fight as well.
Ready to fight @ufc is slow rolling me wtf
Poirier also recently refused to believe Nate Diaz will retire after facing him. We will have to wait and see whether Dustin Poirier will end up squaring off against Nate Diaz later this year or not.
