Dana White Denied Nate Diaz 165-Pound “Superfighter Devision” Title Shot Reports

Nate Diaz Stated He Will Fight At The Main Event Of UFC 230 Versus Dustin Poirier For The First 165-Pound Belt Ever But Dana White Denied The Claim

Nate Diaz has always been known for weird ideas. Last night, he claimed he is headlining UFC 230. But he also stated he will be fighting for a title in a new weight class – 165 lbs. According to Nate Diaz, it is called “superfighter devision”.

I’m Happy to announce that I’m bringing a new weight devision to the Ufc

I’ll be fighting the main event November 3rd in nyc against Dustin Poirier for the first ever 165lb belt superfighter devision

I’m happy to be apart of history @ufc @danawhite

 

Dana White almost instantly denied the reports. Brett Okamoto wrote he talked to Dana White on the phone. The UFC president is not friendly towards that idea.

Just spoke to Dana White on the phone, he denied any plans of a 165-pound title fight at Madison Square Garden. Says he’s still working on a main event for UFC 230.

But as well as you can see, Nate Diaz sticks to his story.

I reached Nate Diaz () via text. His only comment: “I’m fighting for that main event 165lb title.”

Dustin Poirier has already been asking for UFC 165-pound title shot. He supported Nate Diaz.

UFC Welterweight and Lightweight division contain the highest number of fighters. So Nate Diaz’s statement might actually make sense. Generally, 165 lbs are not far from the weight of an average man who is 175-180 cm tall. Many Lightweight and Heavyweight competitors are within that range. Of course, there are few big guys, like Darren Till! Kevin Lee was also calling for this weight class earlier.

Yet, the potential 165-pound winner would probably have right to call the winner of Khabib Nurmagomedov Vs Conor McGregor. If that happens to be The Notorious, he would get a chance to fight for a title shot in the third different weight class.

Now take a good look at Ariel Helwani’s status. UFC thinks about adding one more Interim title to the Madison Square Garden fight card?

With no champions available, UFC is discussing adding an interim title fight to the MSG card, sources tell @espn. It’s not finalized yet, though. Tickets go on sale tomorrow and they’d like to have a main event place by then, if possible.

Many fighters supported Nate’s idea. Take a look at their Twitter comments.

Would you like to see a new weight, division? Fans of Conor McGregor are probably thrilled by the idea. The Notorious might become the only man who won UFC title in three different weight classes if 165-pound weight class is approved! Do you support Nate Diaz? Do you think one more Interim title shot is simply too much?
