Nick Diaz says he will fight Woodley if they make him an offer he cannot refuse
New welterweight champion Tyron Woodley said he would like to defend his belt in three weeks at UFC 202 against Nick Diaz whose suspension expired yesterday. Diaz gave his answer to TMZ.
“If they make me an offer I can’t refuse,” Diaz said. “But I doubt that’s going to happen. I’m over here, look at me right now — I don’t need nothing. I don’t owe nobody nothing. I don’t owe anybody sh*t. I haven’t been fanatical about fighting since I was 15 or 14, since I was eight years ago.
“Once I turned pro, I was like okay, this is not fun and games now. This is me. I’m going to come and I work on karma. I’m not going to go after somebody if I don’t have a reason behind it, so as soon as there is some sort of a reason for me to do something that I need to do, then I’ll do it. Nobody’s done what I’ve done in this sh*t. It just hasn’t happened yet.”
“I want to fight the best guy,” Diaz said. “You know what, I always want to fight the best guy, but the thing is I’m on top. I’m the one on top. They’re dropping my name. I don’t need no fake-ass piece of plastic. F*ck that. I could fight and we could do a catchweight too. Everybody wants to do a fight with me, champions at 170, champions at 185. I said we can meet halfway. I don’t owe nobody nothing. I’m a pay-per-view without a title. I don’t need that fake-ass plastic to beat somebody.”
