Dustin Poirier’s loss to Charles Oliveira at UFC 269 has opened the floodgates for prospects in other divisions. Poirier seems uninterested in a rematch or even fighting in the lightweight division altogether. There have been rumors of ‘The Diamond’ moving up to the welterweight division. And a challenger seems to be ready to face him in the form of Nate Diaz.

The 36-year-old has been pouring insults at Poirier’s direction ever since the latter submitted to ‘Do Bronx’ in their thrilling title match. Since then, both of the top prospects have been involved in a Twitter back and forth. Now, the Stockton-native has added the latest page to their conflict book with a bone-chilling message.

“Your not worthy If u wanted to fight we would have already. Bring yourself back from the dead you s*ck Dp,” Diaz said in a now-deleted tweet today as if implying that this is Poirier‘s chance to bring himself back and reclaim himself.

Presently, Diaz is having a rough couple of years. The Stockton native has registered embarrassing back-to-back losses against Jorge Masvidal (at the BMF championship) and Leon Edwards, respectively.

However, Diaz remains a cult favorite and leaves no stones unturned in giving the MMA audience what they really want. If a match between Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier materialises in the near future, it’ll surely be a banger.

Dustin Poirier blames Nate Diaz for delaying their bout

This conducted of the Stockton native forced Dustin Poirier to reply to him in the same manner, and since then the two have been going at each other. However, it was Poirier who blamed Diaz for ducking him, way before Diaz’s accusations.
