Nate Diaz has not competed inside the octagon since his decision loss to Leon Edwards at UFC 263 in June of 2021. Although the result did not fall his way, Diaz still had moments to give the fans exactly what they wanted when they came to see him when he caught Edwards late on in the fight to stun the next title contender.
Fans have been awaiting the return of Diaz with many speculating his next matchup will be the trilogy against McGregor. However, that idea was shut down following Diaz’s post on social media.
“@ufc I been trying to fight everybody and no go what’s the hold up? I’m not fighting Conor he sucks. I’ll fight some one quit slow rolling me please. Thanks.”
Diaz spent a good portion of his time in the UFC in a feud with Conor McGregor but has found it extremely hard to secure a fight in recent times. Speculation surrounded a potential matchup with Dustin Poirier after both fighters expressed their interest in the matchup however nothing came from it.
