Nate Diaz is going to be moving up to the UFC’s welterweight division, but only temporarily according to Diaz who has called out Diego Sanchez as the guy he wants to fight at 170lbs.
After coming up short against BJ Penn in his lightweight title bout at UFC 107, Sanchez confirmed a return to the welterweight division on his official Twitter account.
“YES IM GOING BACK TO WELTERWEIGHT IM LOVING MY NEW DIET,” Sanchez confirmed.
Sanchez then wrote directly to Diaz after finding out that Diaz was considering a move to welterweight as well.
“I hear your going up too 170 too i would love to welcome you to welterweight lets make it happen,” Sanchez Tweeted to Diaz.
Never one to back down from a fight, Diaz responded on his Twitter account saying, “I’m just stopping by welterweight I’ll be back at lightweight after this fight but I ll stick around to beat diegos ass…”
It looks like these two fighters have taken it upon themselves to play matchmaker.
