The longtime fighter isn’t very impressed by two division UFC champion Daniel Cormier and he challenged the dual title holder to a fight through Instagram:
Sick of this all this “baddest man on the planet” bs. I’ll fight for any title at Any weight. @Ufc wants to make bs wwf fights with guys that fight like shit and put on an act. @dc_mma would look way worse than I do in this pic if he fought Anderson the way I did but instead he decided to wrestle fuck him for five rounds in front of his whole life And still almost got finished off in the last round with Silva only having two or three weeks notice @danawhite should give me this fight instead of dick chest Brock Lesnars cheating ass #dontbescaredhomie nothing personal I love Dc but I don’t like what he does-constantly embarrassed for him and the sport I started doing MMA because it’s not WWF and I’ve never put on A bs act in my life I’m sure fans would like to see a real fight @nick_diaz_academy
While DC has yet to respond to Diaz’s challenge, a response was issued from teammate Colby Covington, who blasted the Stockton native through Twitter:
.@nickdiaz209 Holy shit I didn’t know you could tweet from prison? Watch your mouth when youre speaking about the #NattyGOAT. Youre only beating women these days, you ain’t beating anybody relevant you fucking loser. Shut your fucking mouth before I shut it for you... homie! https://t.co/Dc5LJ07h9P— Colby Covington (@ColbyCovMMA) July 15, 2018
Covington has referred to Diaz “beating women” in his Twitter, post, which stems from the fact that Diaz was recently arrested for an alleged domestic violence incident with an on again/off again girlfriend.
Diaz has never competed at heavyweight before in his professional MMA career, having previously fought at welterweight and middleweight.
