Nate Diaz labels Dustin Poirier a ‘purple belt’ in response to birthday wish as war of words rages on

UFC lightweights Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier have made it clear they want to fight each other next. Since their last fights, ‘The Diamond’ and the Stockton native have continued to insult each other while waiting for an official matchup to materialize.

Poirier lost to Charles Oliveira in a lightweight title fight in his last outing. After coming up short against the champion, ‘The Diamond’ announced his desire for big payday fights. Meanwhile, Nate Diaz has one fight left on his contract and wants to leave with a bang.

Both fighters went on social media and began firing insults at each over the past few months. The latest edition came on Friday, with Poirier tweeting Diaz on his birthday. ‘The Diamond’ said:

“Get a deal done and get that a** whipped for your birthday.”

Diaz was not a fan of Poirier’s words and responded by saying:

“Bruh no one likes you and u suck someone need a to put a purple belt on you thanks for da bday wishes tho.”

Diaz and Poirier were scheduled to fight in 2018 before ‘The Diamond’ pulled out with a hip injury. The matchup makes sense at this stage in their careers unless the UFC is preserving the Stockton fighter for the trilogy with Conor McGregor.

As previously stated, Nate Diaz has one fight left on his contract and seems eager to finish it. Unfortunately, the UFC has shown signs of stalling while figuring out the best course forward for the Stockton native’s final fight.

Luckily for Diaz, he has more options than one. With the rise of MMA fighters transitioning to boxing, the Stockton product has flirted with the idea of boxing Jake Paul. Here is one of his exchanges with the former YouTuber:

Diaz could be bluffing with the hopes of getting a better offer from the UFC, but a change in scenery would not be bizarre. The Stockton legend has built a reputation that will sell tickets anywhere he goes.
