Controversial UFC welterweight Colby Covington has finally got the attention of a Diaz brother.
After insulting both Nick and Nate Diaz in various interviews over the months, older brother Nick responded to ‘Chaos’ with the following statement.
“I’m not gonna sit here and call the man a liar. I never heard about it, I just found out,” Diaz told TMZ Sports in a recent interview. “If you wanna fight, you know where to find me. I’m not a hard guy to find. Step in my motherf**king range right here. Come at me, bro.”
As for younger brother Nate, the UFC fan favorite claims he doesn’t even know who Covington is.
“I don’t know who that is,” Diaz told reporters during a UFC 241 post-fight media scrum. “If we got somebody good to fight, that’s who I want to fight. That’s what I’m saying. You’ve got to do something.
“If you’ve been here for two weeks and get a little hype show, I don’t give a shit.”
Nate Diaz returned to the Octagon after a three-year hiatus at UFC 241, beating former WEC and UFC lightweight champ Anthony Pettis via unanimous decision in the co-main event at Anaheim’s Honda Center.
As for Nick Diaz, the former Strikeforce welterweight king hasn’t fought since his 2015 NC against Anderson Silva and has shown no interest in any kind of comeback fight. Despite his inactivity, however, Diaz is still one of the most talked about fighters in the sport.
