Zach Rosenfield, the representative of former UFC welterweight and lightweight challenger, Nate Diaz has expectations for his client to compete multiple times throughout next year, as well as pursue a much-awaited transition to boxing.

Diaz, a one-time lightweight championship challenger and victor of The Ultmate Fighter – officially ended his lengthy tenure under the Zuffa LLC banner earlier this week, with his UFC contract coming to an end.

Headlining UFC 279 back in September of this year, Diaz managed to successfully bow out of the promotion with a victory, stopping former interim lightweight titleholder, Tony Ferguson with a fourth round guillotine submission win.

In the time since, Nate Diaz, who had completed his contractual obligations with the promotion, was the subject of a period of exclusivity with the promotion, which allowed the UFC to exclusively negotiate with the Stockton native. On Monday night last, that period of exclusivity officially expired, allowing Diaz to officially test free agency.

Nate Diaz expected to make boxing move next year

And according to Rosenfield, Nate Diaz is expected to enjoy more activity in combat sports next year, including the expected debut of the Californian in the squared circle.

“You will see Nate (Diaz) competing multiple times in 2023, and that will include boxing,” Zach Rosenfield told MMA Junkie during a recent interview.

Rosenfield also stressed Diaz’s interest in likely ending his trilogy against former two-weight UFC champion, Conor McGregor, in the form of a future rubber match.

“Nate is going to be looking at the biggest fights possible,” Zach Rosenfield said. “He has stated that completing the trilogy with Conor McGregor is something that interests him, and that has not changed.” 

Diaz has been linked continually with a transition to professional boxing next year amid his UFC exit, namely in the form of a clash against the polarizing puncher and YouTuber, Jake Paul.

Canelo Alvarez

Professional boxing ace, Canelo Alvarez has issued an apology to Argentine forward, Lionel Messi – admitting he got “carried away” after he threatened the Paris Saint Germain striker, believing he had disrespected the Mexico national flag at the FIFA World Cup.

Canelo, the current undisputed super middleweight champion, last headlined a T-Mobile Arena card against three time opponent, Gennady Golovkin – securing a dominant unanimous decision victory to retain his championships back in September of this year. 

Issuing a threat to former Barcelona forward, Messi, Canelo claimed the Argentina national team captain disrespected his country’s national flag – appearing to kick it off his football boot during celebrations in the team’s Qatar dressing room.

Canelo Alvarez walks back threats aimed at Lionel Messi

Walking back those comments and threats this week following Argentina’s pivotal 0-2 victory against Poland as both teams progressed to the last 16 at the expense of Mexico and Saudi Arabia, Canelo admitted he got “carried away” in his tirade aimed at Messi.

“These last few days I got carried away by the passion and love I feel for my country and made comments that were out of place, for which I want to apologize to (Lionel) Messi and the people of Argentina,” Guadalajara native, Canelo Alvarez tweeted.

“Every day we learn something new, and this time it was my turn,” Canelo Alvarez tweeted. “I wish both teams much success in their matches today, and here we will continue supporting Mexico until the end.” 

Following Canelo’s outlandish comments and threats, Messi was defended by his Argentine compatriot and former Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, as well as UFC welterweight contender, Santiago Ponzinibbio – who is scheduled to fight former champion, Robbie Lawler at UFC 282 later this month. 

Expected to make a light heavyweight division return next year, Canelo is rumored to pursue a title rematch with Dmitry Bivol, with the Russian defeating the middleweight kingpin in an upset unanimous decision victory in May of this year.

Paddy Pimblett and Jake Paul may be on a collision course. Earlier this week, the English-born Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett accused professional boxer and YouTuber Jake Paul of having fixed matches.

In professional boxing, Paul has earned a perfect 6-0 record with four of these wins coming by way of KO/TKO. He has earned notable wins over Anderson Silva, Ben Askren, and Tyron Woodley, among others. On the legitimacy of these matches, Pimblett said:

“Jake Paul is actually not that bad now, even though I think his fights are fixed … I don’t think the Tyron Woodley knockout was fixed because when you get knocked out like that and you land face first, if you’re not unconscious you’re going [puts arms out]. You can’t help it. That’s a human reaction. But I seen an angle of a punch he hit Anderson Silva with the other day when he sat down, and he didn’t even hit him.”

Paddy Pimblett and Jake Paul agree on a showdown

Upon hearing this, ‘The Problem Child’ Paul called out ‘The Baddy.’ Jake Paul challenged Pimblett to a sparring match and added that if the English fighter wins he’ll be paid $1,000,000 from Paul. However, if Jake Paul wins, Pimblett has to start working for Paul’s fighters union United Fighters Association.

Paddy wasted little time responding:

“Challenge accepted … If you want to come and spar get to the PI next week. I fight next Saturday, I’ll chill Sunday, and I’ll beat you up Monday.”

‘The Baddy’ Paddy Pimblett has an upcoming fight at UFC 282. The lightweight fighter will be facing Jared Gordon On December 10 in Las Vegas. After he is done with that Saturday night fight, he will be ready for Jake Paul on Monday.

Jake Paul

Undefeated professional boxer, Jake Paul, has once again called for a bout with Nate Diaz upon the Stockon native’s official exit from the UFC this week, urging the former welterweight and lightweight contender to meet him in the ring rather than a hallway this time.

Paul, who boasts an undefeated 6-0 professional record, headlined an October event this year against former UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, securing a unanimous decision victory over the Brazilian – which included a final round knockdown in favor of Paul.

However, in the run-up to the fight, Jake Paul and his entourage were involved in a backstage physical altercation with The Ultimate Fighter victor, Diaz – with security personnel corralling members from both sides and preventing a full-blown quarrel.

Following his impressive victory over the veteran Curitiba native, Paul called for both fights against either Diaz, or super middleweight boxing champion, Canelo Alvarez.

Earlier this Tuesday night, reports confirmed how Diaz, a one-time lightweight title challenger under the banner of the UFC, was now free to test free agency after his period of exclusivity with the promotion had expired.

Jake Paul makes a play to land a fight with Nate Diaz next

Chomping at the bit for his next outing within the squared circle, Paul once more echoed shouts for a matchup against fan-favorite veteran, Diaz.

“Hi Nate [Diaz],” Jake Paul tweeted. “Finally out of your UFC contract? Let’s see how tough you are in the boxing ring instead of hallway slaps contests. @NateDiaz209. I have a venue booked. Offer is ready when you are. Just need you to sign.”

Exiting the UFC on cordial terms as per his manager, Zach Rosenfield, Diaz still remains open to the possibility of securing a trilogy rubber match against former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion, Conor McGregor in the future, in fact.

“This does not shut the door on Diaz continuing to stay in the UFC,” Rosenfield said. “With the pending return of Conor McGregor, that fight still remains extremely appealing to both fans, the promotion, as well as Diaz and McGregor. But what is clear is that the long-awaited Nathan Diaz free agent sweepstakes have officially begun.” 

Paul’s victory over Silva earlier this year added to a resume in professional boxing which includes knockout wins over former UFC welterweight features, Tyron Woodley, as well as Ben Askren.
