One of the biggest MMA stories over the past few days has centered around Nate Diaz – quite the change from years past when his brother, Nick, made the headlines.
To quickly summarize, the UFC seemed set on pairing unbeaten Khabib Nurmagomedov with Gilbert Melendez. When that fight fell by the wayside, Diaz was rumored for Nurmagomedov.
Later reports had Diaz wanting to sit out until a title shot in the stacked UFC lightweight division presented itself.
Well, Diaz is taking matters into his own hands, posting the following on Twitter late Monday night.
Im not waiting for a title shot Ill fight tomorrow….

So, it remains to be seen what happens with Diaz, Melendez and Nurmagomedov going forward.
