Conor McGregor mocks Nate Diaz for wanting to fight Vicente Luque

Nate Diaz is eyeing a return to the Octagon against welterweight contender Vicente Luque. The welterweight contender has been calling out the Stockton Slugger for quite some time now, and it looks like finally it’s time.

Nate Diaz has earlier taken to Twitter to express his desire to fight Vicente Luque. He once again took to the social media platform to call-out Vicente Luque, and expressed an interest in fighting the top-ranked contender.

 

Needless to say, Vicente Luque vs Nate Diaz is an exciting fight and one that is bound to get the attention of fight fans around the world. Both Luque and Diaz are extremely tough opponents, and rely most on their striking prowess to dominate their opponents. Today, let’s take a look at who get their hands raised when both these fighters share the UFC Octagon. 

Can Nate Diaz beat Vicente Luque? 

Vicente Luque is riding on a four-fight winning streak. He is coming off back to back stoppage wins over Tyron Woodley and Michael Chiesa and will look to maintain his winning streak as he takes on the Stockton Slugger Nate Diaz. Luque is currently ranked #4 in the UFC’s welterweight division and is just one big win away from getting his hands at the title shot. 

Luque is an extremely tough opponent, who likes to engage in a dogfight whenever he steps inside the Octagon. Luque has a reputation of giving great fights just like Nate Diaz. It’s a stylistic match-up, and one that is bound to test the chin of both the fighters.

While both Luque and Diaz come in the back of incredible submission skills, it’s highly unlikely that both the fighters will go to the ground when they square up inside the Octagon. 

Vicente Luque has a great cardio, and can go five rounds with Nate Diaz. He is an extremely dangerous striker, with credible knockout power in his hands. Meanwhile, Diaz relies on volume and constant pressure to dominate his opponents. Luque can finish Nate Diaz, but that’s what we thought with Jorge Masvidal and Leon Edwards. So it will be interesting to see whether Vicente Luque is able to get the job done.
