Nate Diaz lost none of his ambition despite leaving the UFC and named the only opponent who could bring him back.
Diaz signed from the promotion with a submission win over Tony Fergusonafter his opponent Khamzat Chimaev missed weight.
Diaz has since launched his own promotion, “Real Fight Inc”, but the Californian has identified an opponent he would start fighting for again.
“I’m only going to fight The rock otherwise I’m fine” Diaz tweeted.
Diaz to fight Jake Paul?
Diaz had been linked to the fight Jacques-Paul after the YouTuber switched to MMA following his boxing career.
“Those fucking shoes suck!” Diaz rages in an ESPN interview shoes approved by Johnson.
“Look at those shoes. They made me put that shit on. F*** those shoes!”
‘Come out for a minute’
September ain’t even over yet but Johnson is not the only veteran who Diaz called.
“I want out of the UFC for a minute,” he said after beating Ferguson. “And show all those UFC fighters how to take over another sport and how you’re supposed to. Conor McGregor didn’t know how to do it.
“None of these other fighters know how to do it. So I’m going to go out there and I’m going to take up another profession and become the best at it.
“Show everybody I’m the best at it and then I’ll be back here to get a fucking UFC title. Best title in the world.”
