Nate Diaz Tells UFC ‘Stop Playing With Me,’ Pushes For Dustin Poirier Fight

Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier are still pushing to throw punches at one another in the octagon.

But, for now, online chatter will have to do. On Wednesday, Poirier posted a tweet that Diaz didn’t leave unnoticed.

“I’m gonna fight you’re a–,” he wrote.

Diaz responded hours later, but with a message directly towards the UFC.

“@ufc stop playing wit me consider this my signature to fight this f–er I been trying to fight for a minute quit slowing down the real fight game it’s time,” Diaz wrote.

Later in the night, Poirier responded indirectly again, but this time with a mock poster of a welterweight bout with Diaz.

The fighters were previously booked to meet in 2018, but it fell through after Poirier suffered an injury.

Diaz’s reportedly extended his UFC contract in mid-December.

It’s unclear if a matchup with Poirier will ever happen because the booking was abandoned again earlier this month.

It was targeted for either January or February.

Neither Diaz nor Poirier have a next fight set up.
