UFC superstar Nate Diaz blasts the UFC suggesting that the company is slowing his opportunity to fight out his contract
Nate Diaz has made it clear that the only fight he wants at this stage in his career is a fight against Dustin Poirier. The Louisiana based former lightweight contender, Poirier has been vocal about the charm in the idea of this fight for quite some time now.
The younger Diaz brother has emerged to be one of the biggest superstars in the game right now. Even though he has lost two of his previous fights, his stocks remain high to this day, and the UFC is cognizant of that. The UFC has recently offered lucrative contracts to Israel Adesanya and Jorge Masvidal, and are possibly working on something similar for Diaz.
But the Stockton slugger has his sights set on a move away from the sport, with a feasible jump to boxing. MMA pundits have suggested that the UFC is other tiring out Diaz, or waiting for Conor McGregor’s comeback to set up the blockbuster trilogy fight. Diaz has claimed on several occasions that the trilogy fight does not interest him, since Conor injured himself terribly at UFC 264.
He posted a tweet saying, ‘
I been trying to fight everybody and no go what’s the hold up ufc 😡👊🏼 ?
I’m not fighting Conor he sucks.
I’ll fight some one quit slow rolling me please
‘I need to get the fu** out of the sorry a** UFC’ – Nate Diaz blasts the UFC for churning revenue through the Diaz name value over the years
The dissension surrounding Nate Diaz and UFC continues to worsen by the day after the UFC announces the launch of a new NFT package that guarantees a Nick and Nate Diaz token.
The Diaz name has been synonymous with some of the most action-packed fights, flipping off opponents, and as real as they come attitude. The UFC has always had trouble dealing with the Diaz boys, as they continued to develop a cult following as an anti-hero figure during their prime years.
However, both Nick and Nate have had their trouble with the corporation’s overextended suspension and lack of PR push when they were at their best. Nick was infamously banned for 5 years when he tested positive for weed after his fight against Anderson Silva. Nate on the other hand was fined heavily for lighting up a CBD vape after his epic war against Conor Mcgregor at UFC 202.
The Diaz brothers have been the trailblazers in the UFC for the incorporation of weed and CBD as part of a performance recovery mechanism. The UFC has been reaping profits through its various CBD deals and the younger Diaz brother sounds agitated over that.
He posted on Twitter saying, ‘ It’s shit like this why I need to get the fuck out of the sorry ass UFC. Didn’t you guys suspend nick for 5 years and fine me hella money for a vape pen?! Now you’re reaping the benefits. I hope nobody buys this bullshit 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼🖕🏼’
