Nate Diaz received a shout-out from legendary rapper, Eminem on one of his latest tracks, referencing the UFC star's skills as a fighter.
Essentiallysports reports that Diaz is a big fan of the Missouri-born hip-hop star, and previously walked out to his track, 'The Way I Am.'
Eminem is also a big fan of UFC too, with his track 'Higher' featuring Dana White and ESPN presenter, Michael Eaves in the video.
Diaz is now eager for a quick return to the Octagon and has already called out Dustin Poirier. The 32-year-old was beaten in two attempts to win the UFC lightweight title, after losing to both Charles Oliveira and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
But despite that most recent defeat to Oliveira, Diaz is still eager to make the fight happen. After Poirier's defeat, he said: I'll fight Dp in January don't be a scared lil b**ch this time now or never."
Poirier was also eager to contes the fight and replied: "I'll fight you this month," so it now appears that a tantalising battle between the pair is imminent.
The pair were due to fight way back at UFC 230 in 2018, but Poirier's hip injury meant that the bout never went ahead.
Poirier currently has a 30-day medical suspension imposed on him by the Nevada Commission following his loss to Oliveira, but this would not apply if he chose to fight in a different state.
It will be fascinating to see if a date and venue can be agreed in the coming weeks.
