Nate Diaz may not want to take down with Khamzat Chimaev, but local Stockton reckons it would be a ‘great idea’ for Conor McGregor to lock horns with ‘Borz’ in his comeback bout.
Let him fight the kamrat it’s a great fight to make
Anyway he needs a new guy that’s easy to fight, he can shrink and see if he can still fight
Great idea Nate

“Let him fight Kamrat. That would be a great fight to make. (Conor) needed a new guy to fight easily anyway. He can shrink back and see if he can still fight. Great idea Nate. Thanks!” Diaz, who was insulted by UFC even offered to fight ‘rookie’ Chimaev, posted on Twitter yesterday.
“It’s okay, b-tch,” McGregor shot back in a since-deleted Tweet, hinting that he might not want to fight Chimaev in the end (And who can really blame him?)
McGregor, 33, is currently sidelined with an injury. ‘The Notorious’ broke his leg during his three-part fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 and is expected to be out of action mid to late next year at the earliest.
Diaz, on the other hand, has only one fight left on his UFC contract but there’s no word on who his next opponent might be. The Ultimate Fighter 5 winner last fought at UFC 263, where he dropped a unanimous decision to Leon Edwards, who placed 3rd in the welterweight division.
