Nate Diaz seems inclined to enter an MMA showdown with a prominent boxing sensation.

The Stockton native has a massive fanbase in combat sports worldwide and is currently making waves in the boxing realm, all thanks to his last fight with Jake Paul.

The former UFC star later received an offer from the PFL to square off against 'The Problem Child' in an MMA fight. However, Diaz unequivocally declined the offer and asserted that he would prefer to clash with a "real fighter".

It appears that Nate Diaz has chosen his next opponent, the former heavyweight boxing champion, Deontay Wilder. Diaz recently turned to X and agreed to face 'The Bronze Bomber' in an MMA cage. He reacted to a video of Wilder and wrote:

"Let’s get these contract written up asap.. Real fight sh*t respect to a real fighter down to fight for real. All love to boxing But this is different REAL 👊🏼 sh*t LFG 1993 🥋"

During an interview with InsideFighting, Wilder was queried about his willingness to engage in a bout with Nate Diaz, to which he readily consented. He also expressed his openness, as a boxer, to the idea of a crossover fight with a former MMA fighter like Diaz:

"Nate I’ll be down to get in there with Nate for sure. Man we going to see there only one way to find."
