Nate Diaz’s next fight seems to be at 170lbs.

Nate Diaz posted a tweet that he might at the welterweight division, after a lot of hints of calling out the lightweight contenders. A showcase of classic Diaz brothers, one cannot predict what Diaz will do next.

During the UFC 257, he had posted a tweet mocking the main event fighters. So many fans assume that he would move back down to his previous weight division which was lightweight. It turns out Diaz is staying in the welterweight division but there is official announcement on who he will fight next.

Nate Diaz has fought for the lightweight title once but fell short against Benson Henderson. He had most of his success in the lightweight division but his biggest win was in the welterweight division against Conor McGregor. His win against McGregor made him popular to the casual fans even more.

But ironically he then posted a tweet of not giving the weight class a care. He throws of a potential call out to the #1 Lightweight, Dustin Poirier but UFC has not yet announced of any deals that they are making with regards to a potential clash.

Nate Diaz’s last fight was against Jorge Masvidal for the BMF belt. Dana White has said that the BMF fight is a one time thing only and Masvidal just lost to the current champion Kamaru Usman. Masvidal has said that he wants to have a rematch with Diaz as well due to a controversial ending and he did not “baptize” Nate.

It seems Diaz does not fight often but his fan base is bigger than most top contenders. He is a household name after all so fans are always excited to see him get back in the ring.

His brother Nick Diaz has also hinted of returning to sport, and he looked in tremendous shape. It would potentially be a huge fight card if it featured two Diaz brothers in a fight night or PPV event. It has also never happened which is shocking considering how high profile the brothers are and how long they have been in the game.
