Nate Diaz is never far from giving his opinion, and it’s often public.
The Stockton native has made a career from speaking his mind and taking aim at anyone or anything that he doesn’t appreciate.
Diaz was set to make his octagon return against Dustin Poirier on November 3, at Madison Square Garden on the undercard of UFC 230.
The fight was always in doubt, however, as Diaz took to Twitter to announce he would be fighting Poirier for a brand new 165 lbs ‘super-fight division’, and claimed he only wanted to fight at that weight.
In spite of this news, the UFC refuted the claim and the new weight division title was shot down, much to the displeasure of the Diaz.
As the fight looked set, both Diaz and Poirier took to Twitter to announce that they wouldn’t be fighting each other in the main event of UFC 230.
However, all the pre-fight shenanigans counted for nothing after Poirier pulled out due to injury, which left to be Diaz officially pulled from the card.
Diaz's strange tweet to Dana White
In Diaz’s latest viral Tweet, the lightweight contender weighed in on the news Khabib Nurmagomedov’s training partner Zubaira Tukhugov would be cut from the UFC.
This was after Tukhugov attacked former two-weight UFC world champion Conor McGregor after the Irishman was defeated by Nurmagomedov in the main-event of UFC 229.
Nurmagomedov had defeated ‘The Notorious’ via fourth round submission and then attempted to attack McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis.
As all hell broke loose, UFC president Dana White acted, and stated Tukhugov would no longer compete in company.
After the brawl, the MMA world cringed at the chaotic scenes, and few were left in favour of Nurmagomedov team’s actions post-fight, however, an unlikely name backed the UFC to allow Tukhugov to remain in the company.
In a bizarre tweet, Diaz urged promoter White to not cut Nurmagomedov's teammate, and instead offered to be fired himself.
Diaz hasn't fought since losing to McGregor at UFC 202 in their August 2016 rematch, in what was a fight of the year contender.
Will we see Diaz return to the octagon any time soon?
