MMA NEWS | Respecting His Lineage | Nate Diaz Wants No Part Of Edgar Fight
“I’m pretty sure, like, I’m not really big on fighting Frankie (Edgar), you know? Frankie came down to train with me and he represents Renzo Gracie and Ricardo Almeida, I train with Cesar (Gracie) so, I really don’t want no part of that fight. I’m mostly interested in fighting people I don’t know. “
The second half of the Diaz brother, Nate Diaz, tells mmafighting.com that he is not interested in fighting anyone he knows and that includes, Frankie Edgar.
Nate was promised a shot at the UFC’s lightweight title with a win over Jim Miller at UFC on Fox 3. However Edgar recently earned his rematch against Benson Henderson to try and regain the title he just lost.
If the two Gracie products both win, will Nate turn down a shot at UFC gold or will he suck it up and fight for the title?
