Popular American fighter Nate Diaz turned to the current UFC lightweight champion, Islam Makhachev, and his failed opponent Khamzat Chimaev, who is striving for the UFC welterweight title.
“This is what happens when you guys fight me,” the American wrote on a social network, posting the end of the duel between Oleg Taktarov and Henzo Gracie, in which the Russian was defeated by knockout. “Charles is easy, Holland is easy, but let’s see if you can last three more years in the big leagues, rookies.”
Last weekend at UFC 280 in Las Vegas, Islam Makhachev won the vacant UFC lightweight championship belt with a second-round choke finish against Charles Oliveira, while Khamzat Chimaev is scheduled to face Colby Covington in March next year.
As for Nate Diaz, he fought the last fight under his current contract with the UFC in September, defeating Tony Ferguson by guillotine choke in the fourth round.
