An hour ago Diaz posted an image of Ferguson holding the interim title on his Twitter feed. And subsequently, this post caused a huge buzz around fight fans. Owing to the fact, Tony and Nate are two of the biggest superstars in combat sports history. As a result, a contest between these two elite fighters would be a treat to the eyes.
However, last week it looked like we would see Nate Diaz go head to head against welterweight contender Vicente Luque. Considering the agreement of both the fighters on Twitter. However, the talks of this matchup have cooled down over the past few days. Therefore it would be interesting to watch Ferguson’s response to Diaz’s callout.

Tony Ferguson has called out Conor McGregor for a fight in his last few posts on Instagram. The Irishman has finally responded to Tony’s callouts on Twitter today. Soon after Nate Diaz posted a picture of Tony Ferguson on his Twitter page, Conor McGregor went on Twitter and replied to Diaz’s tweet.
He responded with a picture in which Joe Rogan was interviewing him after the end of his trilogy fight against Poirier at UFC 264. This picture seems to indicate that Conor has some unfinished business left with both Diaz and Tony Ferguson.

As of now, nothing is concrete and all the above-mentioned tweets are rumours. However, the UFC would most likely book a fight between Nate Diaz and Tony Ferguson. Because this battle will certainly grab the attention of fight fans around the world. Therefore a scenario where the winner of Ferguson vs Diaz facing McGregor would be extraordinary.
