Diaz May Walk After UFC 244
Will Nate Diaz’s last fight come this Saturday night against Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244? If you talk to the Stockton product, it may be.
While Diaz will be fighting for the second time in three months after a nearly three year layoff, walking into Madison Square Garden to fight for the BMF belt, and while he loves to fight, he needs the right reasons.
“I’ll never have to fight again (after UFC 244),” Diaz said during the most recent media scrum via MMA Junkie. “I didn’t have to fight a long time ago. But what am I going to do? I’ve got all kinds of other stuff going on, but … I don’t like not fighting.”
“I’ll take forever off, or I’ll get back to it if anybody comes correct. The only reason we’ve had problems in the past is because you better treat me like it’s supposed to be. I’ve been in this game forever doing my thing regardless of outcome. I’m coming back my next fight stronger, better anyways.”
“I think (fighting) is the best thing for me,” Diaz summated. “It’s weird because it’s self-destructive fighting, and it’s self-destructive not fighting. Kill or be killed. Like I said before, it’d kill him with it, it’d kill him without it. I don’t want to do this (expletive) at all, but sitting back watching somebody else do it is not comfortable for me.”
