Nate Diaz and Dustin Poyer have never fought in Octagon. But that doesn’t mean they haven’t traded with each other for years.
The two shouted at each other on Twitter on Wednesday, leading some to believe that the fight between the two could finally be won.
Poirier tweeted, “Nathan?” On Wednesday afternoon, Diaz replied a few hours later, “Let’s fight, don’t be scared this time.”
Let’s not be scared this time.

Diaz and Poirier were due to play in UFC 230 in November 2018, but Poorer had to withdraw due to injury.
Poirier has tried to re-book the fight over the years, but to no avail.
Diaz, 36, is 21-13 in the UFC, his last fight being a unanimous decision defeat to Leon Edwards in the UFC 263.
Poirier, 32, is 28-6 (1 NC), the No. 1 contender in the lightweight division and the No. 6 pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC. He has won a series of victories over Connor McGregor.
