Someone from Nate Diaz’s past is convinced that the Stockton legend will leave the UFC after his next fight.
Tomorrow night, PFL star and Olympic gold medalist Kayla Harrison will terminate her current contract and go into free agent mode. She is expected to become the most popular free agent in MMA by the time tomorrow’s PFL season finals wrap up. However, there is another person with a much more established name in the sport who is also in the same battle to become a free agent: Nate Diaz.
Nate Diaz is currently not swearing and has been busy trying to play himself a matchmaker on social media, or so it seems. Vicente Luque and Tony Ferguson are two potential contenders that Diaz has paid particular attention to, with Luque being a direct combatant and a reference to Ferguson a photographic taunt. However, his future adversary and his future promotion remain a mystery as the lone fight remaining in his contract continues to hover over his future.
UFC President Dana White was directly asked about Diaz’s contract status and his future in the promotion, and he is as unaware as the rest of us about what the enigmatic Nate Diaz will decide to do.
“This is his business. This is a decision he must make, ”White said in an interview with TSN on Monday about Diaz.
“If you believe that you are one of the best in the world, and if you believe that you can win the world title here or stay in the top five, then this is where you should be. The minute you start to doubt it, you should look for other options. “
“As for Nate Diaz, I don’t know where he thinks he is now, and what he thinks his future might be if he signed another contract here for a four-five fight.”
Josh Thomson is confident that Nate Diaz is leaving the UFC
There is someone who does seem convinced of what Nate Diaz will do next, that Josh Thomson is the only person to beat him by TKO but didn’t stop him with a doctor. This is what Thomson said when the topic of Diaz’s future UFC (h / t LowKickMMA) came up.
“I want you all to know this. [Nate Diaz] leaving the UFC. ” Thomson said on his Weighing In podcast: “He is fighting Jake Paul. They will fight. This fight will happen. “
It is unclear if Thomson is conveying inside information or if he is simply making a confident prediction. In any case, in his opinion, in the past, Paul has shown a great interest in Diaz. In fact, Paul once put Diaz at the top of the wish list of potential adversaries. If this battle had really taken place, it would undoubtedly be expected to be big business for all parties involved.
