“Oooh, that, I like it. I think that’s a good fight. Oh yeah, man. I’ve got a big smile here right now. Right now, I need to fight. It doesn’t matter who my opponent is, or their rank. I need to fight, because I lost my last fight. My focus is to come back stronger and win – that’s it. Just for the fight. I never think about money; I just think about the fight. He’s really good. I think that’s a good fight.”
Edson Barboza is looking for an opponent and if Nate Diaz doesn’t take his offer to fight, he may move down to featherweight.
In a recent interview with MMAJunkie, Barboza was asked if he would like a fight with Nate Diaz. Barboza responded excitedly and explained why the fight would have made perfect sense.
Nate Diaz was originally scheduled to face “The Immortal” Matt Brown, but the fight was scrapped because it was announced before Diaz decided not to sign the contract. Styles make match-ups and a bout between Nate Diaz and Edson Barboza would be a thing to behold.
