Nate Diaz gets called out by four-division champion Adrien Broner 

Nate Diaz is no stranger to putting on a show of his strength and madness. The 37-year-old American, who is currently a free agent, spent fifteen memorable years at the Ultimate Fighting Championship, where he made a stellar name for himself. He is venturing into the world of professional boxing soon and already has drawn attention from some big names.

Nate Diaz is no stranger to putting on a show of his strength and madness. The 37-year-old American, who is currently a free agent, spent fifteen memorable years at the Ultimate Fighting Championship, where he made a stellar name for himself. He is venturing into the world of professional boxing soon and already has drawn attention from some big names.

He was called out by four-division boxing champ Adrien Broner for a bout in the ring with gloves. “Nate Diaz you coming over to boxing I will give yo a** everything you looking for #LETSGETIT,” Broner wrote, sharing a mockup of a boxing poster featuring the two fighters.

Broner is not in the best of shape right now but has enjoyed a stellar career himself. In 14 years of professional boxing, he amassed a staggering record of 34-4-1 and was a champion across four different weight classes. However, he has only won a single bout in the last four, which is where Diaz could have a huge advantage.

Another area where Broner will be giving away a massive advantage is the weight class. The 33-year-old weighed 146 pounds during his last bout while Nate’s average weight for a fight in the ring is 170 pounds. However, it will be interesting to see if this social media proposal goes through as recently, Broner pulled out of a fight citing mental health issues. 

He was scheduled to fight Omar Figueroa on August 20 but had pulled out right at the end. Broner also had a major issue with the court lately for not following up with the court-mandated alcohol treatment program. But he repeatedly stated that he is far from being done with the sport. 

Diaz had an interesting few months where his contract with UFC was coming to an end. His last fight for the company against Khamzat Chimaev did not go through as the Swedish MMA professional was 7.5 pounds over the welterweight limit for a non-title fight. 

He eventually came up against Tony Ferguson in the main event which Diaz won by a guillotine choke submission in the fourth round. Despite having an option, the 33-year-old Californian opted to not continue with UFC, bringing an age-old association with the company to an end.
