Diaz and Jake have gone at it on social media many times before, and he was also the target of Jake’s post-fight ring interview just minutes after knocking out Woodley. Diaz has made it clear that he doesn’t plan on moving to box anytime soon, but he’s certainly not ruling out a fight with either one of the Paul brothers.
According to Diaz, security personnel was charged with protecting the Paul brothers from Diaz during the event. He blasted the Paul brothers during a recent Instagram post.
“The Paul sisters hired this security team to make sure I wouldn’t get to them like I was actually trying to,” Diaz said. “But it’s all good with u guys I don’t take this fight thang with you two serious. You guys playing boxing with wrestlers who can’t box or lil a** Floyd and that’s not cool bruh but it’s good. I’m a real fighter from the real fight game so don’t trip so hard when you see me fellas let’s just be friends it’s good.”
Nate Diaz Is Planning His UFC Return In 2022
Diaz last fought earlier this year at UFC 263 against Leon Edwards, losing via unanimous decision. He’s called for the UFC to put him on one of the upcoming pay-per-views to fight Dustin Poirier and other opponents.
Despite his long hiatus from the fight game, he’s remained active on social media and has gotten into spats with both Logan and Jake in the past. He could be on the way to fighting one of them in the boxing ring sooner rather than later.
