Nick Diaz Officially Calls Out Jorge Masvidal, And Masvidal Accepts
Jorge Masvidal says it would be an "honour" to fight Nick Diaz in response to his latest call out for a blockbuster UFC clash.
Diaz, 36, has doubled down on his desire to face Masvidal. He called for a fight with the BMF champion after taking offence to his "baptising" comments towards Nate Diaz.
A few days later and it seems like he really wants that match-up. The ex-Strikeforce welterweight champion took to social media to continue his call out of Masvidal.
"Thank you @arielhelwani for letting me come on had a long week I was a little worked up," Diaz wrote on Instagram. "@gamebredfighter @ufc give the fans that Real shit what they wanna see."
Masvidal wasted little time in responding to Diaz's latest call out.
"Would be a honour. I'm 100 in for this #theresurrection," he wrote on social media.
Diaz hasn't fought since January 2015 where he lost a decision to Anderson Silva, which was overturned to a no-contest after both fighters failed drug tests.

But Diaz is eyeing a sensational return to MMA and he wants it to be against the 'baddest motherf**ker of the Octagon'.
"I'll fight anybody. This guy [Masvidal] can do anything he wants to do right now to make the most money possible," he told Ariel Helwani.
"I'm like, you know, do the damn thing. ... I'm doing my part, you do yours. They can do their part and then the show could go on.
"You know, it's on you Dana. It's on you, UFC... that's on them. It's in your hands now. Cowboy Stadium."
Masvidal's win over Diaz at UFC 244 improved his winning streak to three, which also includes knockout victories over Darren Till and Ben Askren.
