Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion and top box office draw, Brock Lesnar, is coming back to mixed martial arts (MMA) in 2019. So too, is ex-welterweight No. 1 contender, Nick Diaz.
So why not give Daniel Cormier’s heavyweight title shot to Diaz instead of Lesnar?
That’s not a real question, mind you, but that’s because you, dear reader, are of sound mind. But the Stockton slugger seemed to be up way past his bedtime last night and had nothing better to do than rail against UFC and its WWE bullshit on social media.
“Sick of this all this ‘baddest man on the planet’ b.s. I’ll fight for any title at any weight,” Diaz wrote on Instagram. “UFC wants to make b.s. WWF fights with guys that fight like shit and put on an act. Daniel Cormier would look way worse than I do in this pic if he fought Anderson the way I did but instead he decided to wrestle fuck him for five rounds in front of his whole life and still almost got finished off in the last round with Silva only having two or three weeks notice.”
Diaz fought Silva in the now-infamous UFC 183 main event where both fighters flunked their pre-fight drug tests, so Diaz saw his loss get overturned to a no contest. Unfortunately, Diaz couldn’t keep his act together and has not competed since.
But at least he’s not embarrassing himself like Cormier, who took a decision win over “The Spider” at UFC 200.
“Dana White should give me this fight instead of dick chest Brock Lesnar’s cheating ass. Nothing personal I love DC but I don’t like what he does, constantly embarrassed for him and the sport. I started doing MMA because it’s not WWF and I’ve never put on a b.s. act in my life. I’m sure fans would like to see a real fight.”
They probably would, but Diaz is out of action until further notice after racking up a pair of felony charges in his time off. He maintains his innocence in the domestic violence case but will likely have a long and messy legal battle ahead before getting cleared to compete.
Until then, it looks like Lesnar will get the first crack at Cormier’s heavyweight belt, captured from Stipe Miocic at UFC 226 last weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada.
