Poirier Revealed He Agreed to a Bout with Nate Diaz

This announcement caught many fans off-guard especially given that earlier during the week Poirier spoke on an episode of ‘The Fight WTA’ to reveal that he had in fact accepted a short-notice matchup against Diaz.  

“Hey, look! I don’t owe these guys (the UFC) nothing, man, I’m not biting my tongue,” Dustin Poirier said. “It is Nate Diaz. And just like he got on Twitter – I’m not gonna say what card, I’m not gonna say a date or whatever, but he got on Twitter talking, everybody’s a tough guy. This guy really fights – and I’m a fan of him. But everybody’s a tough guy on the internet.”

Poirier previously revealed after his loss to Charles Oliveira that the only fight that really interested him was a matchup against Nate Diaz, the pair were supposed to face off in 2018 but due to multiple issues that fight never went ahead.

“When I’ve been laying down thinking about fights, nothing gets me excited — unless Nate Diaz wants to fight, if he wants to fight, that gets me excited. But all these other guys like even the new guys, and whoever it is, maybe a name will (get me excited) whenever I hear it, but nothing [right now].”
