Chimaev vows to finish nate diaz

"I am going to handle Nate Diaz’s funeral with the UFC,” Chimaev said via Brett Okamoto of ESPN. This will be the last fight on Nate Diaz's current UFC contract.

UFC has been planning for Chimaev vs Diaz for quite some time now. Earlier, Dana White's boardroom got leaked during a podcast, confirming UFC was looking to book Diaz and Chimaev all along.

Needless to say, it's a tough match-up for Diaz, who has only slowed down in recent years and going against someone as young as Chiimaev, it's certainly going to be a huge problem for the Stockton Slugger.
