Former Strikeforce and WEC welterweight champion Nick Diaz has been around the block. Having won belts in multiple promotions, Diaz has also faced some of the toughest fighters on the planet.
In Georges St-Pierre, Diaz faced arguably the greatest fighter of all-time. It was no whitewash either, Diaz had GSP in trouble a few times. Now though, as time has moved on, both St-Pierre and Diaz have been very inactive.
Nick Diaz Hasn’t Fought Since January 2015
Although not through his own choice, Nick Diaz has not fought since early 2015. After a controversial five year ban was reduced to 18 months by the NSAC, Diaz was cleared to fight again last month.
Rumours are spreading that Diaz and the UFC are close to coming to a bout agreement. Nothing has been officially announced yet. On to today’s story-earlier this week we showed you Nate Diaz gatecrashing Conor McGregor’s UFC 205 party, turns out Nick was there too.
Watch the video of Nick Diaz calling Conor McGregor a bitch, and claiming he was the first two-weight world champion:
“Fuck you!”, Diaz said “I was already the two-weight world champion, bitch!”
This was at Conor McGregor’s UFC 205 after party in New York. The outspoken Irishman overtook the Diaz brothers as the biggest trash talkers in the UFC. Not only this, McGregor can also back it up.
Facing Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, McGregor broke a Holy record, winning a title in two divisions at once.
