If someone had said there is a possibility of Nate Diaz going to the WWE five years ago, I would have told them to get a grip on life.
Well, jokes on me because there is a realm of possibility.
On Monday, Diaz shared a picture of himself alongside the CCO of WWE, Triple H, and his wife, co-CEO Stephanie McMahon.
He wrote, “We’ll see what’s bout to happen next.”
After 15 years with the UFC, Diaz is a free agent after completing his contract at UFC 279, where he defeated Tony Ferguson in the main event via submission.
The 37-year-old had a love-hate relationship with the UFC for the last ten years over pay and his place within the organization, but now he doesn’t have to worry about that, even though he hinted about a return after handling some outside business.
There have been whispers about a Diaz vs. Jake Paul match-up in the near future, and with Diaz being at the boxing match later this month, it wouldn’t be surprising if that was announced.
While WWE is a wild card, boxing is most likely the route Diaz will take. Just yesterday, RIZIN President Nobuyuki Sakakibara revealed to MMA Mania that he is interested in Diaz vs. Floyd Mayweather.
“So, with that said, Floyd’s opponent doesn’t have to be a Japanese fighter anymore,” Sakakibara said. “It’s just one possibility thinking about the future. Not only Floyd’s opponent, but Nate Diaz as an individual has a great amount of character, fight style, and a great following internationally. So, as an individual, he would definitely be somebody we’d be interested to be talking to.”
There are endless possibilities for Diaz, and the best is yet to come.
