Nate Diaz says he is ‘training to whoop Dustin Poirier’s ass next’

Dustin Poirier has been called out by Nate Diaz after his UFC 257 victory over Conor McGregor.

Poirier stunned McGregor to take the biggest win of his career, after unleashing a flurry of punches to seal a technical knockout victory two minutes and 32 seconds into round two of their rematch.

Diaz has previously said he wanted to fight the winner of the clash, and has hit out at both men after their fight in Abu Dhabi.

He confirmed his intentions to fight Poirier posting a mocked up image of the two staring off against each other with the caption: ‘I’m training to whoop ur ass next. Be about it don’t talk about it.’ 

Diaz also had time to rip into his former rival McGregor for his first ever KO loss at the hands of Poirier.

The 35-year-old tweeted: ‘These guys all get finished all the time.’

Diaz has a history with McGregor, and stunned the world himself to seal a submission victory over ‘The Notorious’ at UFC 196 in 2016.

McGregor however would get his revenge later that year, beating Diaz by majority decision at UFC 202. 

After a two-year long layoff, it was expected that Diaz would face Poirier in November 2018, before the latter was forced to pull out due to injury and the bout was cancelled.

Before Saturday’s fight, McGregor had been out of action since a convincing victory against Donald Cerrone one year ago.

Diaz himself has also been out of action for a considerable amount of time.

The last time he fought was in a November 2019 loss to Jorge Masvidal, when the doctor was forced to stop the match due to a cut over Diaz’s eye.

Poirier, who enacted revenge on McGregor for a 2014 defeat, talked about his future options after the fight against the Irishman.

‘A rematch with Conor interests me,’ Poirier said. ‘Always wanted to hip Nate Diaz’s a**. That interests me. I’m sure something will make sense. But just now, I don’t know. 

‘Me and Conor are 1-1. Nate Diaz got away and likes to talk a lot of s*** online.’  

‘I can guarantee I’m not fighting Michael Chandler. They can do whatever they want with the division.’

Chandler knocked-out Dan Hooker in the first round of their fight in UFC 257 – the bout which took place before the main event between Poirier and McGregor.
