Soon after Diaz teased the special weight class, former interim champion Dustin Poirier claimed that he would “whip” Diaz there as well. However, the comment did not go too well with Diaz who shot back at the former interim champion.

Diaz responded by taking a subtle dig at both Dustin Poirier and Jorge Masvidal. Diaz called both the fighters “fake” as he stated that they are both fighting their friends. Dustin Poirier is set to take on Conor McGregor, who has shared a healthy relationship on social media off late. Moreover, Diaz was expected to take on Jorge Mavidal, however, with UFC President Dana White showing more interest for a potential Colby Covington vs Jorge Masvidal ahead of the symbolic “BMF” rematch.

Additionally, Diaz reminded Poirier about their previous scheduld bout which fell off after Poirier pulled out of the fight due to an injury. However, Poirier’s decision to take on Eddie Alvarez just two months later raised a lot of eyebrows. Diaz was set to make his lightweight return against Dustin Poirier back in 2018, and with Poirier pulling out then, Diaz believes he already has a win over the former champion.
