The future of the lightweight division depends on ‘The Eagle’s‘ decision that he will shortly take. If Khabib Nurmagomedov fights once again to make it 30-0, it would arguably be the biggest fight in the promotion’s history. That decision will depend on the performances by the likes of Dan Hooker, Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier, and Michael Chandler .
If either of the aforementioned fighters is able to put on a stellar show, The Dagestani fighter would come back to the sport for one last fight. However, not everyone is onboard with Khabib taking his time to make a decision.
UFC fan favorite, Nate Diaz took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the situation with Khabib Nurmagomedov. He said, “Kabib is a a pu**y for real”
Nate Diaz infamously got into a brawl with Khabib and his team when the two teams crossed paths at an event in 2015. Since then Nate has maintained a strong disdain for the Dagestani fighter.
His sentiments are shared with rival Conor McGregor, who has also bashed Khabib for wanting to walk away from the sport. He added that ‘The Eagle’ was afraid to fight him, which is a reason in him wanting to walk away from the sport.
Nate Diaz has been away from the sport for a while. His last fight was in November 2019 against Jorge Masvidal for the ‘BMF’ belt. At the time, he stated that he would only accept a rematch against Jorge Masvidal as he felt the stoppage was unnecessary.
However, recent developments suggest that Nate will be dropping back down to 155-pounds. Dana White, in a recent interview, confirmed that the UFC is working on getting him a fight at lightweight. Though it is not known at this stage as to who he is fighting, it will be interesting to see who the UFC matches him up against in one of the most talent stacked divisions in the UFC.
Who do you think Nate Diaz is going to fight at lightweight? Let us know in the comments below!
