Michael Chandler proposes Nate Diaz showdown at Noche UFC

If Conor McGregor isn’t ready to fight, then Michael Chandler is willing to look at Nate Diaz as an alternate solution.

With McGregor’s status for a long-awaited octagon return in limbo following his UFC 303 withdrawal due to a toe injury, Chandler (23-8 MMA, 2-3 UFC) has been the target of criticism for not moving on to an alternate matchup.

It appears Chandler is now willing to look in other directions, and has put a target on Diaz (21-13 MMA, 16-11 UFC) after the ex-UFC star indicated he wants to return to the octagon following this past Saturday’s boxing win over Jorge Masvidal (via X):

Sit down, Ron… better idea – me and @NateDiaz209 fight like real men, while Conor sits on a yacht and watches on PPV in his slippers. #ufcnoche #riyadhseason

The new “Where’s Waldo” – the Mac Daddy had a great run though….

Instill fear…let him pull out of the fight and embarrass himself, be known as the guy who retired McGregor without ever throwing a punch….

Chandler, 38, suggest a fight with Diaz at Riyadh Season Noche UFC, which goes down Sept. 14 at Sphere.

The former three-time Bellator champion was not part of the names Diaz suggested for his next move, as the Stockton slugger name-dropped Jake Paul and Leon Edwards as part of his hit list going forward.
