Just 24 hours ago, Nate Diaz broke the internet by announcing on Twitter that he and Dustin Poirier are going to fight for the inaugural 165-pound division at the Madison Square Garden in New York on Nov.3 and people got excited real quick and within minutes Nate Diaz’s tweet received thousands of likes and retweets.

The excitement didn’t last long as Brett Okamoto of ESPN almost immediately tweeted out that UFC president Dana White has denied any plans for the 165-pound title. Even though Dana White has denied it, there’s still a possibility of the addition of a new 165-pound division and the way people reacted on Social Media, it shows that there’s a real public interest.

There’s also a huge possibility that if Nate Diaz vs Dustin Poirier turns out to be a new 165-pound championship fight, the winner of the fight might end up fighting Conor McGregor in a money fight.

Tickets for UFC 230 are scheduled to go on sale Wednesday, despite no official main event. Other fights on the undercard include a middleweight rematch bout between former champions Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman.
