Diaz challenges Cormier, Lesnar in IG post.
Moments after Daniel Cormier defeated Stipe Miocic at UFC 226 to become the UFC Heavyweight champion, current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar hopped in the octagon to confront the two-division champ. Lesnar, who remains suspended for a failed drug test, still has some hurdles to leap before he can challenge Cormier, and he's not the only one looking for a shot at one of DC's belts.
In addition to Miocic and veteran middleweight Yoel Romero, Nick Diaz is also looking to get his hands on the belt, and he took some jabs at Brock Lesnar while stating his case. In a recent instagram post, Diaz explained why Dana White should give him a title fight against Cormier instead of "dick chest Brock Lesnar's cheating ass."
The full post reads:
"Sick of this all this “baddest man on the planet” bs. I’ll fight for any title at Any weight. @Ufcwants to make bs wwf fights with guys that fight like shit and put on an act.@dc_mma 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@danawhite should give me this fight instead of dick chest Brock Lesnars cheating ass #dontbescaredhomienothing 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 bs act in my life I’m sure fans would like to see a real fight @nick_diaz_academy"
Diaz just recently became eligible to fight in the UFC again after serving a one-year ban from the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for missing three out-of-competition drug tests within a 12-month span. He has not fought in the UFC since losing to Anderson Silva at UFC 183 on January 31, 2015. That result was later ruled a no-contest because Silva tested positive for PEDs and Diaz tested positive for marijuana.
