Nate Diaz was in attendance at the recently concluded trilogy fight between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The MMA Superstar caught up with some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment at the event.
The Stockton native will test the free agency waters after successfully fighting out his UFC contract. Combat sports fans let their imaginations run wild when a picture of Diaz alongside Triple H and Stephanie McMahon surfaced on the internet.
Netizens put on their thinking hats and speculated on a potential move to WWE for Nate Diaz. The younger Diaz brother perfectly fits the bill for an anti-hero owing to his recalcitrant character.
One fan suggested that Diaz could perhaps settle his disagreement with WWE superstar Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a 'The Rock', inside the squared circle. The Stockton slugger has openly expressed his disapproval of Project Rock as the official footwear of the promotion:
"He can settle his beef with @TheRock over those shoes"
Another fan floated the idea of a potential fight between Diaz and Logan Paul, who signed a multi-fight deal with WWE:
"That would be wild, logan paul vs Nate diaz"
Others laid out fantasy plots involving Ariel Helwani as Diaz's manager:
"Have Ariel play his manager, this would be great. Go after Logan Paul and that eventually leads to Jake vs Nate."
