The UFC’s Lightweight division is heating up, Nate Diaz wrote this which is a slap in the face of the UFC:
His last fight was a win with a ‘Knockout of the Night’ honors over Gray Maynard at the TUF 18 Finale in November. He is still waiting on his next opponent.
Although undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov was reportedly to be an option, UFC president Dana White claimed Diaz wasn’t interested in the fight. Let’s just say they had words on social media.
According to Nate Diaz’ manager, the problem was more of a contractual issue that being afraid to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov. Back in December, Anthony Pettis said that he wanted Diaz this summer in his return bout from a torn PCL. He would be defending his lightweight belt.
Nate Diaz is only on a one fight win streak and that was over Gray Maynard. I just can’t see him getting a title shot over just that win. Time will tell if Nate will fight for the belt, but after his most recent rant it is hard to believe that he will.
