In a massive shock, Nate Diaz will be returning to the UFC to face Leon Edwards. Diaz announced the news earlier this week, saying that he is coming into the Welterweight division to take on the Englishman.
’Check me out may 15th I’ll be headlining #ufc262 in Houston, Texas’ Nate Diaz wrote on Twitter. ‘It’ll also have the new UFC lightweight title fight on the card. I need people to know these guys are they’ve been working very hard and I can’t wait to see who gets my old crown. I’ll see you guys there!’
Diaz has continued to promote himself online this week, now calling out one of the top Lightweights in the UFC: Dustin Poirier. Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier were supposed to fight at UFC 230 in November 2018 originally; however Poirier was forced to pull out with injury.
Nate Diaz on Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor
Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor were recently going back and forth on Twitter. McGregor would say that Diaz is his ‘next fight’ following the proposed UFC 264 fight to finish the trilogy of Poirier vs McGregor. “Don’t worry you’re my next fight bro” Conor wrote. “You and your face know what I’m like when I go again with it.”
Diaz responded by not only slating McGregor, but also taking a shot at Poirier. “Don’t forget Dustin f*cked u up” Diaz began. “But he’s scared of me. You are both some b*tches.”
“And I slapped kabob [Khabib], he was scared with no counter” Diaz added. “And he owned you. So who’s the real king? Me bitch that’s who, King Nate dog.”
Well the 155 and 170 divisions are getting spicy again aren’t they.
