It looks like mixed martial arts fans just might see Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal throw down soon.

Diaz returned to action for the first time in three years this past weekend at UFC 241 when he defeated Anthony Pettis via unanimous decision. After the win, he proceeded to call out Masvidal for a fight that has got fans and the combat sports world excited.

Masvidal was excited himself as the camera panned to him in the crowd and a couple of days since the event, he finally responded to the callout:

“Nate was right about one thing — I ain’t no West Coast gangster,” Masvidal said in a recently uploaded video. “Shoutout to the West Coast, I get a lot of support from over there, great vibes over there. I’m from Miami Dade county. I’m a dirty South goon. Damn right, I ain’t no West Coast gangster. I’m from the MIA, baby. I’m ready. I’m ready to put it on the line.

I’m so gangster, we can do it – besides the 7 percent tax in Cali, I would love to do it in Cali. People were asking me ‘hey, why don’t you do it back home?’ Home for me is the road. I don’t have like a home. My home is the road. I don’t care if it’s in Miami or where it’s at, I just like to fight. I’m used to fighting outside my home city so the road is my home, it’s where I feel most safest at. So my Miami peeps, don’t get mad at me if the fight is not here. I’m just going to do what works.”

Diaz Fight Being Negotiated Right Now

Masvidal even claimed a bout with Diaz is currently being negotiated right now which only serves as good news for fight fans:

“We ready for this fight man,” he added. “We’re just negotiating. Let’s give the fans a fight they want to see. Two dogs locked in a cage, going for the jugular. You know that I can get hit with a baseball bat, it don’t mean nothing. Same thing with my rival — you can hit that dude with a fucking baseball bat to the kneecaps, he’s going to keep coming.

It’s a fight that the fans want and they’re going to get man. I’m going to give it my all, Nate’s going to give his all, let’s do it.”

Masvidal later stated that the fight could happen in December and that he’s not too fond of competing at UFC 244 which takes place in New York’s Madison Square Garden.

What do you think of Masvidal’s response? Do you think we’ll see the fight before the end of the year?

Conor McGregor has finally reacted to Nate Diaz’s winning return at UFC 241 this past weekend by posting a lengthy statement on Instagram.

Diaz returned to the Octagon with a dominant decision victory over Anthony Pettis. It was notably his first fight in nearly three years when he was last outpointed by McGregor at UFC 202.

Speaking after the win, Diaz surprised many by calling out Jorge Masvidal rather than McGregor for a trilogy fight. And on the three-year anniversary of their rematch, the Irishman paid tribute to the Stockton native.

“3 years to the day myself and this Mexican animal went to war,” McGregor wrote on Instagram. “Congrats on the win this weekend Nate, it was motivating to see it for my own comeback. I don’t blame you not mentioning me for the trilogy bout post fight, you know what I’m like when I get going. Vicious.

“I loved the round 3 style from round 1 that you implemented. It’s what I was hoping you would implement for this bout and was glad to see you do it. I’ll be prepared for it when we go again. If we go again. If not, respect always. A war for the ages. No bitch talk. Just real shit.”

It will certainly be interesting to see what’s next for McGregor. The former lightweight champion was last submitted by Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 last year. However, the option of a trilogy fight with Diaz is always there should he not get his rematch with Nurmagomedov.

Do you think we’ll ever see McGregor vs. Diaz III?

Former UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has released an emotional statement following his loss to Stipe Miocic.

Cormier was in control of his UFC 241 headliner against Miocic for majority of the fight this past weekend. However, Miocic made an adjustment and started attacking the body which led to Cormier’s downfall. Miocic would eventually win via fourth-round TKO and become a two-time heavyweight champion.

After the fight, “DC” spoke of how he abandoned his gameplan and let his coaches down. And with a few days passing since, the former champion apologized for letting everyone down while giving an update on his future:

It’s been a couple of days and I can’t stress the disappointment, I am so sorry to all I have let down,” Cormier wrote on Instagram. “To my wife and kids I am so sorry you guys had to experience that, I never wanted y’all to see that and the hurt you guys showed breaks my heart everytime I think about it. My coaches I am sorry, i appreciate the work and time you’ve spent with me. My fans, thank you guys for all the love and support you have guided me to all these amazing accomplishments.

Stipe Miocic and his team, congratulations on a tremendous victory, you showed so much heart and grit, you are the definition of Cleveland tough. @danawhite And all at the @ufc thank you all for everything you have done for me and my family. This has been the most amazing journey, I will decide what I am gonna do now, and as soon as I decide you will all know right away. I love you all. DC.”
