Nate Diaz calls for Dustin Poirier fight in January, Poirier responds, ‘I’ll fight you this month’

Nate Diaz called for a fight with former interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier on Monday with a timeframe in mind, and Poirier responded.

“I’ll fight Dp (Dustin Poirier) in January don’t be a scared lil b*tch this time now or never,” Diaz tweeted.

The two were slated to face either other at UFC 230 in November 2018, but an injury forced Poirier out of the fight. Diaz is coming off back-to-back losses to Leon Edwards and Jorge Masvidal in welterweight matches. Poirier is coming off a loss to lightweight champion Charles Oliveira.

It didn’t take Poirier long to respond to Diaz’ challenged. “I’ll fight you this month,” Poirier wrote.

When Diaz didn’t reply as fast as Poirier wanted, Poirier posted, “Nathaniel?”

Diaz did respond, saying Poirier was full of it. Poirier insisted that he’s being serious.
