Nate Diaz Teases Transition to Boxing

Nate Diaz has not fought since his second bout with rival Conor McGregor at UFC 202 in August 2016, and yet he constantly finds ways to make headlines.

In recent times, he was called out by UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley, and rumors swirled the two might collide at UFC 219. But that fight never came to fruition, with UFC President Dana White stating that the fight was never officially offered.

Now, the younger Diaz brother has taken to Twitter to make a claim about recent UFC fight offers. In the tweet, he suggests he may have his eyes on a different sport — one that his rival went off to last year.

This isn’t the first time Diaz has talked about a possible move to boxing, as Diaz received a boxing license in the state of California (with an application also submitted in Nevada).

It looked like Diaz and McGregor would one day have the trilogy bout, since both of their encounters ended up as a couple of the highest-grossing pay-per-view events in the UFC’s history. But McGregor has disappeared from the Octagon, inactive since defeating Eddie Alvarez for the UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 205 before going on to compete in the Money Fight.
