Nate Diaz is definitely one of the most legitimate fighters to have ever stepped foot inside the Octagon. Diaz also has lofty ambitions after retiring from MMA. He also reacted went after Khamzat Chimaev after the latter was pulled out of their UFC 279 fight.
UFC 279 was going to see Nate Diaz face Khamzat Chimaev in Diaz’s final match for the company. However, Chimaev was pulled from the match after failing to make weight.
Diaz will now be fighting Tony Ferguson instead, a move that nobody expected. While speaking with ESPN MMA, Diaz shared his thoughts on getting a new opponent and stated that “Borz” was no longer undefeated.
“I don’t like that no more, getting into fights with people that I don’t appreciate, that don’t deserve, who haven’t put in the time.
So at least I’m dealing with somebody right now who’s been through it. And if it is my last fight here, which I don’t really plan on it being, at least it’s with a veteran and somebody who’s respectable.
So whatever happens, happens. But I’m glad I just beat that little bitch.
And this guy is a little-leaguer, bro. Straight up, a little-leaguer playing in the major leagues. And he felt I didn’t belong? I’ll never fight him in here, but I’ll fight him right now if I could f****** find his bitch ass here anyway.”
We will have to wait and see whether Nate Diaz will be able to defeat Tony Ferguson in his final fight. Fans will certainly be excited to watch what Diaz will do in the end.
