Nate Diaz is claiming he’s only open to fighting The Rock.
It was at UFC 279 on September 10th, 2022 that Nate Diaz (22-13 MMA) defeated Tony Ferguson (26-8 MMA) by submission in the welterweight main event, ending his UFC contract.
Diaz was supposed to fight welterweight star Khamzat Chimaev (12-0 MMA). However, Chimaev missed weight by a large margin leaving the UFC scrambling to save the main event, hence Diaz fought veteran Tony Ferguson.
The fan favorite ended on a high note.
Of course since riding out his contract, speculation has surrounded the Stockton slugger – what will he do next? Fans and MMA experts alike are making predictions citing a possible trilogy match with former UFC champion Conor McGregor or perhaps a boxing match with Jake Paul.
Seeing irrelevant guys like Diaz and McGregor keep their names trending by calling out folks that are still getting their hustle on is just sad lol
He means Nate Quarry.
That’d be pretty funny to see. Dwayne would totally dwarf Nate. I mean we saw Mayweather “fight” Big Show, so anything can happen. They could build the story how Rock screwed Nate out of the BMF title by tainting his water, since he wanted his fellow guy from Miami to win.
