Nate Diaz, Vicente Luque To The Octagon? Diaz Responds To Luque’s Call Out
Nate Diaz accepted the challenge from Vicente Luque with simple words: “So let’s fight.”
In a post-fight interview, Luque gave a persuasive pitch to make a fight with Diaz happen. He said that he is not trash talker, and he cannot sell the fight by words, but his fighting style, and fighting attitude to never back down, against identical attitude’s fighter, is going to be “must watch” fight.
After several weeks, Diaz responded through social media and accepted the challenge. Nothing is official, yet, but the hype is high.
