Nate Diaz wants Dustin Poirier, Charles Oliveira next at 170 pounds | Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show

Nate Diaz returns to Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show for the first time since November 2019 to discuss what he’s been up to since his fight vs. Jorge Masvidal for the BMF title at UFC 244. Diaz (3:54) gives his thoughts on Conor McGregor getting knocked out by Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, then expresses interest (9:30) in fighting Poirier next at 170 pounds. Diaz also (16:15) speaks about getting called out by other big names like Tony Ferguson before saying he’d want to fight Charles Oliveira. He also (26:51) reacts to Jake Paul calling him out, then tells Ariel when he’d want to (29:40) make his UFC return and how many times he’s like to fight in 2021.

    • I remember one old video where Nick said that for them it is not sport its fighting. And thats the point-how can you be koed or choked out and come home alive. In this perspective it makes perfect sense. And this sht about records-Diaz at his prime fought the best fighters for years and got finished once. That is so rare but still people would mumble about records. Sometimes I wish MMA wasnt so popular as it is now. Coz many people know sht but still write it everywhere without knowing the core of this sport.

  • Nate should stay and wait for 170, cause 155lb division they are gonna do everything to get Chandler vs Khabib it is just history repeats itself UFC gets a Champ from another organization give them a fight they hope they will dominate in to build up hype and get the Champ interested in fighting and UFC hopes of course their champ will dominate this guy who they build up it has been the same ole business plan for years now. Who else would Khabib want to fight at the moment really he already beat everyone else so Chandler vs Khabib makes most sense in 155 if they can get Khabib to take it. The older guys should move up in weight and stop killing themselves to cut so much weight where they can keep up the pace better for 5 rounds instead of starving themselves and having to rehydrate with iv fluids after the weigh-ins which has led to numerous hospitalizations the night before multiple events. I hope they do get one of the two fights Nate wants setup.

  • Did anyone ever ask Nate why he is southpaw although he is right handed? Or some other really interesting questions about HIS rare fighting style instead of his opinions on other fighters and sht like that? Man, you have nearly an hour to interview one of the most entertaining fighters with history longer than dinosaurus and you ask him about Jake Paul. Fck this really.

  • I think the reason Nate is so tough is that he's in a permanent state of stroke. Any hit or disturbance just temporarily reverts him back to normal, that's why he sounds so off outside of the octagon.

Don't get me wrong Nick and Nate Diaz got me into watching MMA. They both my favorites. But nothing is going on... Cause as you put it your just hanging out.
