At UFC 279 this past weekend, Nate Diaz defeated Tony Ferguson by submission in the fourth round. This was Diaz’s final outing in the Octagon. The 37-year-old has stated that he will be quitting the company temporarily in order to concentrate on leading “another sport.”
During a recent appearance on the Bare Knuckle Show, BKFC president David Feldman discussed the team’s hopes of signing Nate Diaz.
“I can’t tell you whether he’s coming or not, but I can tell you that we want him here at Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. And we’re gonna do everything that we can do to get him here at Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship,” David said.
“Nate Diaz is absolutely on the radar. He’s not just on the radar, we’re aggressively gonna make a move for him right now. I know he has something else that he’s working on right now, but I have a feeling after having a talk with the partners and the guys at Triller that we’re gonna be able to make a really viable attempt. We’re going for this, absolutely.
“We have to respect the UFC’s window that they have to re-sign him and everything. But we’re going for him. A hundred percent, we’re going for Nate Diaz.”
“I think that the fans would absolutely love to see both of the same personalities, just guys that keep fighting… Nate Diaz vs. Mike Perry would be a fan’s dream fight. I think the fans would love to see that.
“I would pay to see that fight, easily. That would be an amazing fight. If we could do something like that, that would be great.”
