  • Conor McGregor is interested in a trilogy fight with Diaz and a fourth fight with Poirier, with Poirier open to the idea.


Nate Diaz may be on the card for UFC 300 after Dustin Poirier called him out in what would be a mega fight for the landmark event next year. Poirier and Diaz were set to face each other at UFC 230 in November 2018. The fight was unfortunately canceled as ‘The Diamond’ had to pull out due to an injury.

Diaz left the UFC last year after securing a win over Tony Ferguson at UFC 279. However, after losing his boxing debut to Jake Paul, the 38-year-old has reaffirmed his intentions to return to the MMA organization and publicly turned down a $10 million offer to rematch Paul in an MMA fight in the PFL.

The UFC Veterans Have Unfinished Business

Poirier has hinted at a potential matchup for UFC 300 and has stated his desire to appear in the event. The highly-anticipated pay-per-view event is slated for April 2024, and Poirier is in talks to be a featured fighter in this historic spectacle. Confirming discussions with UFC CEO Dana White regarding his participation in UFC 300, ‘The Diamond’ has also publicly named Diaz as a potential opponent for the event.

In a series of tweets, the lightweight contender utilized social media to call out former UFC star and previous adversary, Nate Diaz. Poirier’s succinct posts read:

300

Nathaniel?

While the UFC veteran did not respond to Poirier’s call out, he sent out a tweet of his own hinting at his return after praising Leon Edwards’ performance against Colby Covington over the weekend.

Diaz sent an “I’ll be back” meme featuring Arnold Schwarnegger’s iconic line from The Terminator.

Diaz fought Edwards at UFC 263 and lost the fight by unanimous decision. However, he landed a viral straight left hand that left the welterweight champion badly hurt in the last minute of the fifth round. In true Diaz fashion, he declared himself the winner of the fight despite losing the other four rounds.
