Former UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington recently called Diaz a “jobber,” which has prompted Diaz to says that Covington knows where to fight him if Covington wants a fight.
“I’ve got (expletive) to do,” Diaz said to TMZ Sports (via Nolan King of MMA Junkie). “This whole ‘I’m supposed to be fighting so-and-so or something-something’ … if you want to fight, you know where to find me. I’m not a hard guy to find. Step in my (expletive) ring right here. Step in my (expletive) ring, bro. Come at me, bro. Come at me, bro.”
Covington is expected to fight UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 244, so a potential bout with Diaz could be delayed for quite some time.
Georges St. Pierre expressed little to no interest in fighting Diaz for a second time, but Diaz has some advice for the former two division UFC champion.
“Georges, homeboy, go get yourself a job,” Diaz said. “Hell, they’ll hire you. They won’t hire me nowhere. Go get yourself a job, Georges. Have a (expletive) nice life. I just want to be positive. I like the guy. Everybody is trying to make me the bad guy.”
GSP and Diaz met back at UFC 158, with GSP scoring a decision win over the Stockton native on that night.
