The UFC has offered fights to Nate Diaz, but he either wants his release or a title fight. Well, now he has changed his mind and has his sights on Matt Brown. Diaz wants to fight Brown at next at 170 pounds.
“I want the Matt Brown fight,” Diaz said. “That’s what I’m looking for. I’m trying to fight the baddest motherf**kers out there. I’m not trying to fight some lame ass fighter that they’re trying to build off of me.
“My brother is retired. So if this guy wants to fight a Diaz, he’s got to fight me.”
Diaz has a 17-9 MMA record and is 2-2 out of his last four. He beat Jim Miller, he then lost to Benson Henderson and then Josh Thomson back to back. In his last fight he beat Gray Maynard last November.
Matt Brown responded with this: “I respect what he said about wanting to fight the baddest motherf*ckers, but I have to talk to my manager.”
