After A Backlash From Fans, Dana White Says He’ll Try To Make Nate Diaz vs. Dustin Poirier A Five Round Fight
A couple of days back it was announced that UFC 230, will be headlined by a women’s flyweight title bout between former bantamweight title contender Valentina Shevchenko and Sijara Eubanks. Previously UFC slated Shevchenko to fight for the vacant title at UFC 231 against former dominant women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk in Toronto.
Many in the MMA community were surprised and expressed their anger on booking of lackluster title fight many suggested that card should have headlined by the Dustin Poirier vs. Nate Diaz showdown which is currently serving as the co-main event. Even the UFC commentator and analysis Joe Rogan also gave a live reaction to the announcement, admitting that he doesn’t even know Sijara Eubanks is.
UFC head honcho Dana White seems to have heard the complaints about UFC 230 main event fiasco. He replied to the fans on Instagram, who were requesting that the Poirier vs. Diaz fight be promoted to the main event spot, to that White said “DEAL.”

”Dawggg, just make Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier the main event for more PPV buys, happy fans, and do it for the children,” user ApolloTheOne wrote. “People just want good fights and who the f**k doesn’t want to see a 5 round war between Diaz and Poirier? Even you, don’t lie!”
”I do,” White responded. “I said DEAL. I will try to make it.”
Don’t make your hopes high as Dana White said he’ll try, anyway he’s in charge of everything, so if he really wants if he’ll make it happen.
Do you think Poirier and Diaz’s lightweight bout should serve as the UFC 230 main event?
