Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier have reportedly been locked in to face off at UFC 230. The fight goes down Nov. 3 within the Madison Square Garden in New York, as featured live on pay-per-view.
That being said, things did not go so smoothly at the promotion’s 25th anniversary press conference on Friday, Aug. 3. Diaz and Poirier were in attendance for the event in promotion for their fight.
Diaz appeared at the presser late and left in the middle of the UFC’s announcement of Conor McGregor’s fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov for UFC 229. Later taking to Twitter, Dustin Poirier and Nate Diaz each seemingly revealed an interest in cancelling their fight.
