“This is a fight that I’ve wanted for a long time. [Nate] got out of his UFC contract and this is probably the biggest fight of the year, only topping me versus Tommy” the fighter claimed.

“I want to make big events, big fights happen and strike while the iron’s hot. He was a free agent. Let’s run it. Make it happen. Settle the sh*t talk. I’m ready for war. I’m excited to be here.”

The brother of WWE Superstar Logan Paul would finish by slating another UFC legend, Conor McGregor, when saying how he plans to knock out Diaz.

“Thank you for having me out, Dallas. I love y’all and I’m going to do what Conor McGregor couldn’t do, and I’m gonna knock this man out” he concluded.
