Nate Diaz ‘over’ Khabib Nurmagomedov fight: ‘I already beat him’

Despite their intense rivalry, Nate Diaz is not at all interested in facing MMA superstar and UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov

It seems we wont be seeing Nurmagomedov vs Diaz, if the latter gets his say. 

UFC 244 is approaching, with the much-anticipated Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz bout headlining for the BMF title. It’s an enormous, fan-friendly fight, but it’s no the only high-profile fight that Diaz has been linked to. Diaz has had a contentious and at times violent rivalry with Khabib Nurmagomedov, which has bled into both camps. The two sides have had a series of altercations and intense confrontations, sometimes breaking out into full fist fights.


Diaz spoke with the MMA media ahead of UFC 244, and when asked by MMAnytt about Nurmagomedov, the Stockton native wasn’t interested in facing current UFC lightweight champion. He also spoke of his distrust of USADA, the bout with Masvidal and much more, see the video above.
