UFC lightweight contender Nate Diaz was not very happy to see a poster which advertised him as being a welterweight fighter.

Nate posted the following photo on his Instagram stating that he is actually a lightweight.

Welterweight? I been a lightweight the whole time all the sudden? #dontgetittwisted 👊🏽🖕🏼

The “Stockton Slugger”, Nate Diaz (19-10 MMA), has only competed in the welterweight division five times during his nineteen-fight mixed martial arts career.

Prior to his submission victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 196 this past March, Diaz’s last eight fights had taken place at 155-pounds (lightweight).

Who do you think will win the McGregor vs. Diaz rematch at UFC 202 this August? Sound off PENN Nation!
