Nate Diaz is eager to get back into the octagon and has issued a challenge to any UFC fighter willing to accept it, anyone except Conor McGregor at least. The younger Diaz brother has been fighting since he was just a teenager and has now had a professional MMA career that has spanned over fifteen years and saw him compete in almost all of the top MMA promotions available at the time. Diaz has been known for his elite level of Jiu-Jitsu for MMA and his fantastic boxing skills inside the octagon, but also for his amazing trash talk and hilarious moments whenever he’s given a microphone.
As he reaches his late thirties, Nate Diaz has been open about the fact that retirement is on his mind and has even gone so far as to request a final fight against Dustin Poirier just recently. He has not yet had his next fight announced and it seems as though Diaz is now getting frustrated with the UFC failing to get him an opponent over the last few months. Nate Diaz made the callout of anyone in the UFC except Conor McGregor in a recent post to his official Twitter account:
@ufc I been trying to fight everybody and no go what’s the hold up 😡👊🏼 ?
I’m not fighting Conor he sucks.
I’ll fight some one quit slow rolling me please

This isn’t the first time that Nate Diaz has been open about the fact that he isn’t interested in completing a trilogy with Conor McGregor, despite what many of the fans may want. He previously tweeted to request a spot in an event back in January this year but wasn’t actually matched up with anyone in the end, and he was very clear even back then that the injury that McGregor suffered in his last fight against Dustin Poirier and his lack of recent victories was what was turning Diaz off the idea of fighting him for a third time:
I’m not fighting Conor until his leg grows back and he beats some people so we know he can even fight still till then
Can I get on January card @ufc
