Nick & Nate Diaz

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was kicking it with Nick and Nate Diaz earlier this week.

Israel Martinez posted the following photo on Twitter Friday evening showcasing the three UFC superstars. Check it out:

Jon Jones headlined yesterday’s UFC 197 event in Las Vegas opposite Ovince Saint Preux. “Bones” won the fight via unanimous decision and earned the promotions interim light heavyweight title in the process.

Jon Jones has offered the UFC his services for July’s UFC 200 event in hopes that he can have a light heavyweight championship rematch with Daniel Cormier in the card’s currently vacant main event slot.

Meanwhile, Nate Diaz, who was supposed to headline UFC 200 opposite Conor McGregor, has stated that he will only fight at July’s blockbuster event if it is against “The Notorious”.

The other man in the photo, former Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz, is eligible to return to the cage this August after he completes the suspension handed to him by the NSAC for failing his post-fight drug test at UFC 183.
