Don’t expect Nate Diaz to retire from MMA Ever
The Stockton Slugger last fought and lost to Jorge Masvidal for the BMF belt in November 2019. A medical stoppage forced him to add another loss to his resume as two bad cuts around his eye had turned his whole face red.
Diaz, 36, will fight Leon Edwards next at UFC 263. The non-title welterweight fight will take place on June 12 with UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori fight scheduled for the main-event.
In a recent interview to ESPN sports analyst Stephen A. Smith, Diaz has revealed that he doesn’t intend on hanging his gloves from the MMA possible ever.
“I’m not like these other fighters. I don’t plan on retiring ever in life. Ever. So I’ll be here till the end of time,” the MMA star told Smith.
The Stockton-born claimed that the reason he hasn’t fought in the UFC regularly is because the fighters that he shares beef with are avoiding fighting him.
“I never planned on staying out. It just kind of happened that way. And especially how the last couple years have been real slow, so I don’t feel like I was missing much. I was in the gym the whole time,” Diaz added.
