“I’m always down to fighting Nate Diaz. I think that’s the kind of fight that will always excite me. Will always make me train harder,” Luque said at the presser. “If that fight happens, I’ve said it before. He likes five rounds. We could go six rounds, seven rounds, how many rounds he wants and that would be a pleasure for me.”
As previously mentioned, Luque did acknowledge that he currently has to allocate the entirety of his attention and focus to his fight with Chiesa Saturday night. But he did acknowledge he would be open to returning later in the year.
“I gotta focus on this fight first, I got Chiesa. I don’t know how I’m gonna get out of that fight, if I’m going to be healthy,” Luque said. “But if I am, yeah, I would fight this year again.”
Despite a rise in the welterweight rankings and another step closer to the UFC welterweight title with a win for Luque Saturday, if Nate Diaz calls, you listen.
