Well it looks like we have some good ole’ fashion drama on our hands. When Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Gilbert Melendez was announced I was salivating and foaming at the lips, much like I do when I’m presented with unexplained bacon.
Unfortunately what happened with this fight was it got scrapped and that was unexplained. Which is the complete and utter opposite reaction I have to unexplained bacon. I just felt an emptiness and sadness inside of me. We may never truly know what happened with Gil vs. Khabib, but we have a much more interesting development.
As Dana White took to Twitter to say that Nate Diaz turned down a fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Diaz responded with a tweet of his own in the most Nate Diaz way possible.

This all just makes me miss Nick Diaz so much more. One Diaz isn’t enough to fill my thrust for Stockton attitude.
Whether you like the Diaz brothers or not, deep down in your subconscious you want to be them. You may ask why, well it’s simple. Each and everyone one of us at one point in time wanted to tell our boss they were full of sh*t, never mind on a public forum where thousands of people will see it. Don’t ever change, Nate.
