(Video) Nate Diaz Still Non-Committal On Dustin Poirier UFC 230 Fight
Another day passes and we still don’t know whether Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier will fight at UFC 230.
Just last week, the UFC announced that Diaz would be returning to the Octagon for the first time since UFC 202 in Aug. 2016 and that he would be facing Poirier at Madison Square Garden on their Nov. pay-per-view event.
Just 24-hours after the fight was made public, Diaz walked out of a UFC press conference during the announcement for Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov and he has since made it known multiple times on social that he’s not totally committed to taking the fight in November.

Speaking to TMZ earlier today, Diaz said “time would tell” as to whether the fight will take place against Poirier. When asked if there was anyone he would specifically want to fight, Diaz answered “I don’t want to fight anybody.”
