Former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez recently locked in a rematch against tough division contender Dustin Poirier. That being said, the former title holder is still trash-talking UFC superstar Nate Diaz.
Alvarez is now locked in to face off against Poirier in a highly anticipated rematch at UFC on FOX 30. The event will take place July 28 in Calgary, Canada.
Speaking on the latest edition of The MMA Hour, Alvarez has decided to spend his time discussing Nate Diaz rather than his upcoming opponent.
“From what I was told Nate Diaz was not available. The GSP thing was going to happen. I have asked for Nate Diaz again and again. I just don’t think they want the fight. If I want to fight someone, I have to talk about that guy. I have to speak up and can’t just secretly want to fight a guy. If you don’t speak up, especially in the UFC, you don’t get shit.”
“Nate didn’t speak up. If it was me who he wanted, he blew it. He’s got to talk, he’s not talking. Nate wants to be the victim. He wants people to bully him so he can feel like the victim. That’s Nate’s deal. So he can’t go calling people out and be the victim at the same time.
“That’s the kind of dude he is. If he keeps playing it the way it is, he is never going to get a fight. He’s a non factor right now in the world of MMA, and that’s all I got to say about him.”
