Updates on the career of Nate Diaz from himself usually doesn’t come very often. However, his latest message to his fans has raised more questions rather than answers.
On late Friday night, Diaz took to his official Twitter account and claimed that the promotion offered him a title shot in “any weight class.” However, instead of accepting that proposal, he decided to move on “to the next sport for now.”
He then added a pair of boxing glove emojis, which has sparked speculation that he’s headed to boxing. He wrote the following:
“Ufc offered me title fight in any weight class Im kool though I’ll givem a shot when they do something good. On to the next sport for now.”

Diaz has not been seen in the Octagon since his rematch with current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor back at UFC 202 last August when he suffered a majority decision loss which came five months after Diaz submitted McGregor in their first bout at UFC 196.
Diaz’s camp continues to say that he will only fight again for an eight-figure payday.
Diaz has been biding his time since a third bout has been off the table with McGregor.
It should be noted that he has teased interest in boxing as he acquired a license to box in the state of California and was also recently rumored to be in consideration for a fight with UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley for Dec. 30 at UFC 219.
