Nate Diaz, known for his UFC career, discusses his future plans of returning to MMA and shares his thoughts on the UFC. Find out more about his upcoming fight against Jake Paul and his appreciation for the organization.
Nate Diaz, known for his career as a UFC fighter, is set to take on YouTuber Jake Paul in a boxing match in Dallas, Texas. However, despite his venture into boxing, Diaz has expressed his intention to return to mixed martial arts (MMA) in the future. The 38-year-old fighter acknowledges the advantages of being under the UFC umbrella and appreciates the way the organization conducts its business.
In a recent interview with the Full Send Podcast, Diaz shared his post-fight career plans, stating, ‘Yeah, I’m going to do MMA. 100%, I’ll box and do MMA, again a bunch of times. I think afterward, after every fight, it’s like, after my last fight with Ferguson, I got out. It was like a breath of fresh air. I appreciate the UFC more now than when I was in it, you know what I’m saying? I can see different things that I wouldn’t even look at when I was in there. Like ‘Oh, that’s why they do that, cool actually’. So, I’m going to get done with this fight, then I’m sure another breath of fresh air.’
While Diaz has a controversial reputation and has been outspoken throughout his MMA career, he now recognizes the value of the UFC’s approach. He commends the organization for its success and acknowledges that it is the best promotion in the world. Diaz does have one critique, however, as he expresses his dislike for the uniform rules imposed by the UFC. He states, ‘There’s things I would change but that’s personal, like that uniform rule where everybody looks the same and s*** like that. It’s not football, I like to wear whatever I want to wear.’ Despite this, Diaz believes that the UFC is doing a great job and predicts that it will remain the leading promotion for a long time.
In conclusion, Nate Diaz’s upcoming boxing match against Jake Paul is just a detour in his fighting career. Diaz plans to return to MMA after the fight, appreciating the UFC more than ever before. While he has some personal critiques, Diaz acknowledges the UFC’s success and believes it will continue to dominate the world of mixed martial arts.
