UFC 230 co-main event fighters, top ranked lightweight contender Dustin Poirier and popular MMA fighter Nate Diaz had been demanding to officially be made the main-event of the evening and be given a shot for a new 165 pounds title. However, UFC President Dana White had outright and adamantly refused the idea and had boldly stated that a new division for their fight will not be created. UFC 230 has since suffered a huge loss because Poirier pulled out of the fight due to an injury and even Diaz was later removed from the card as the UFC was unable to find a timely replacement for Poirier. Thus, there has been plenty of speculation about Diaz’s future and his next opponent and according to the man himself, he is eager to take on the UFC lightweight champion Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov.

The news was first broken and reported by noted combat sports journalist Ariel Helwani of ESPN. Helwani took to his Twitter account and revealed that he asked Diaz what is next for him now that Poirier is out of UFC 230. The younger Diaz replied that he will simply wait for the champion to fight him.
