American MMA star Nate Diaz said that names like Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua don't stand a chance against him. Not only this, but he also said that he would beat both the heavyweight boxing megastars if they lock horns in a ‘real fight’. Diaz bid adieu to UFC in September 2022 and made his boxing debut against YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul in August 2023. In his maiden bout, Diaz ended up on the losing side via unanimous decision. 

Diaz, whose boxing record stands 0-1 currently, spoke to social media sensation Sneako. Former UFC lightweight and welterweight ace addressed the possibility of clashing against Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua and said that if the fight ever happens, they both don’t stand a chance against him and he will take them both down. 

The 38-year-old could be heard saying, "I'll f**k up Tyson Fury. I'll f**k up Anthony Joshua. All these motherf**kers in a real fight, like, they don't stand a chance. We've got, everybody's going on boxing. Mayweather. We're playing a little game. He added, “I don't like being like, labeled as an 'MMA fighter.' I'm a boxer. I'm a Jiu-Jitsu guy. I'm a kickboxer. I don't like any of the one-dimensional things by itself anyway. I like it all."

I wanted to, but I don't think so: Nate Diaz on whether he will appear at UFC 300

The former UFC champion spoke about his possibility of appearing at the UFC 300. Diaz said that while he wanted to appear in the historic UFC event, he couldn’t do so due to contractual interferences. Diaz spoke, “I wanted to, but I don’t think so. I think I wanna do boxing, fight another fighter. I could fight anybody in the world right now but no one can fight me. Everybody’s locked down to organizations… locked down to the UFC, PFL.”

Diaz stepped away from the UFC world after spending over a decade with the organisation. Though the UFC wanted to sign the MMA star, he had some other things on his checklist.
