“One name we haven’t talked about which I have to ask you about obviously is Nathan Diaz cuz he isn’t always usually very clear about what he wants and I think he’s pretty clear that he wants you. He posted a picture. I’m sure you saw his tweet and all that.

What do you make of that one, that option?”, asked Helwani.
