Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Last 7 days, it became recognised that UFC is seeking to ebook a BMF title rematch between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz, and the group went … gentle. The two are stars, and it is probable to be an entertaining battle, but offered how just one-sided the 1st match was, there’s not just a big desire for a next bout.
Top-ranked Welterweight contender was a lot more than bored by the plan, he was outright mad. “Rocky” has been chasing a showdown with Masvidal at any time since he and “Gamebred” squared off back phase, and he immediately took to contacting out “pussy” Masvidal for taking the Diaz rematch, which Edwards views as the a lot easier struggle.
Now, Nathan Diaz is not a man to typically stand up for his former/upcoming opponents, but nor is Diaz going to get a slight devoid of answering back again. The Stockton-native went on Twitter to fire again at Edwards, mocking the Englishman’s backstage loss to Masvidal … and throwing some further shade at Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“You bought fucked up in the again for acting like you ended up restricted,” Diaz tweeted. “This combat shit is the identical almost everywhere, in or out of the cage… do not get punked ever. That goes for kabob also, you men are in very last location now lol.”
At the time of composing, Edwards has still to respond to Diaz’s trash chat, probably simply because it is the middle of the night time in London. When he was tweeting, nevertheless, Edwards did express fascination in the a bout with Nick Diaz, the elder of the two brothers who is supposedly generating a return.
All in all, it looks like 2021 could be the 12 months of the Diaz … or the yr both brothers get overwhelmed up in bad blood matches. Time will explain to!
Alistair Overeem is an absolute legend.
Holy sh*t, “GSP” has hair!
Tony vs. Khabib appears to be destined to be this generation’s Randy Couture vs. Fedor Emelianenko … other than a greater match up that would make me even far more sad.
In 47 times, Khabib vs Gaethje will consider place just times just after Tony Ferguson leaves the octagon just after battling Porier
This will be the 2nd time that Khabib & Ferguson will be on the very same major card and not combat eachother
