This match between Nate Diaz and Khabib Nurmagomedov wasn’t something that people were talking about – but recent events have led us to believe that this might actually happen. Let us take a closer look.

Nate Diaz vs Khabib Nurmagomedov: Is It Happening?

Up until now it just seemed like a fantasy booking. Diaz vs Khabib started to actualize when the two had a verbal altercation at UFC 239 where they had to be separated by security. However, things didn’t end there. Diaz went ahead to state that he is ‘too cool’ to face guys like Khabib Nurmagomedov, this is bound to have pissed off the Russian even more.

Could this be a part of Khabib’s mind games?

The Diaz vs Khabib match, if it ever happens, is likely to take place at UFC 250 as it feels like a big enough PPV for this.

A win for Khabib puts him at an even higher pedestal than ever before!
