This Is How The MMA World Reacted To The Big Nate Diaz Story
If you’re an MMA fan in Asia, you’ve probably just woken up to the news that Nate Diaz will no longer be fighting Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244, which goes down next weekend.
In the last couple of hours, Nate took to social media to post the following statement:
“Im not gonna make it out to NYC for fight week next week because they say I tested with elevated levels that they say might be from some tainted supplements. I call false on that cause I only take Whole Food or natural food supplements. I don’t even eat meat. So until UFC, Usada or whoever is F***ING with me Fixes it, I won’t be competing. Im not gonna play their game and try and hide it or keep quiet, as they suggested. I’m not gonna have my name tainted as a cheater like these other motherf***ers who keep quite until after the fight so they can get paid. f**in cheaters. I dont give a f*** about some money over my dignity and my legacy. I’m not playing along with this bulls***. I’m not staying quiet and figuring it out after the fight. That’s cheating. So fight game, I’ll see you when I see you. Sincerely, The realest baddest mother f**er in the game”
Obviously this has sent shock waves around the MMA world. The news comes just hours after Conor McGregor had stated that he wanted to face the winner of Nate and Jorge.
