So, ITS OFFICIAL!!!
Diaz posted the above photo this morning. It really comes as no surprise after Dana White stated he wasn’t interested in a rematch between Diaz and Masvidal.
Masvidal is on a winning streak and deserves a top-notch opponent in his run for a belt.
Diaz has had his main interests in things other than fighting in the UFC for a long time, and after his last performance, despite your feelings about the stoppage, his scars from cuts open easily. Choosing retirement is probably a good choice.
Question is, will it stick this time? As I’ve discussed before, there is a distinct trend in MMA for fighters to retire, then come back. I’m not a fan of this practice. If you need a break, take a break, but only announce your retirement when you are sure you’re done.
What do you guys think? We all know how this usually plays out but if you have been a fan of the DIAz brothers for awhile now you will know that they don’t really enjoy fighting as much as you would think! Could this be a way for him to take on a one off in a boxing fight like he wanted a few years back or is this legit the last goodbye for Nate Diaz? Either way it’s been one hell of a career for Diaz stretching back all the way to season 5 of the Ultimate Fighter alongside Robert Emerson with Coaches BJ Penn and Jens Pulver!
