Michael Johnson asking Dana White for a fight with Nate Diaz

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Nate Diaz is in Michael Johnson's sights according to his most recent Twitter post.

Michael Johnson has been one of the nicer revelations in the past several months. Always touted as one of the most talented guys in the gym, Johnson's UFC performances were often lacking, including back to back losses to Myles Jury and Reza Madadi.

Many felt that the UFC was feeding Johnson to the wolves when he was set to face Joe Lauzon at the first UFC card on Fox Sports 1. Instead, Johnson put a beating on Lauzon, dominating him for a unanimous decision win. He similarly surprised and dominated Gleison Tibau at UFC 168, knocking him out in the second round.

Johsnon is now tweeting at his boss asking for a big fight:

Diaz recently snapped his own two fight losing streak by knocking out Gray Maynard at the most recent Ultimate Fighter Finale.
