UFC President Dana White recently appeared on UFC Unfiltered to say the promotion is working on a bout between Nate Diaz and former two division champion Georges St. Pierre.
Nate is shooting those fight rumors down, saying the UFC is selling wolf tickets for a potential bout with GSP.
The Stockton native would make his feelings known via Twitter:
Nick Diaz is Nate’s older brother and he suffered a decision loss to GSP in the main event of UFC 158 in March of 2013.
TMZ Sports recently caught up with Nick, who believes that he was poisoned through the IV that was used the day before the encounter with GSP.
“I think whoever tries to make that fight, I’m gonna have to give him a backhand slap,” Diaz said. “I fought the dude (St-Pierre), they poisoned my IV with some weird ass drug. I have 37 fights, been fighting for 17 years, I never slept more than five or six hours a night. (For that fight), I slept 14 hours, I’m like ‘what did you put in my IV, dude? I never had nothing but clear IV. And there was something wrong with his wraps. I was flat on the way out (and) I’m in the best shape of my life. Everything was strange.”
It has been quite a while since either Diaz brother has competed in the UFC, with Nick last competing at UFC 183 and Nate last competing at UFC 202.
