Michael Chandler is the perfect matchup for Nate Diaz says Daniel Cormier

Daniel Cormier floated the idea of a matchup between Nate Diaz and Michael Chandler, suggesting that the younger Diaz brother can actually win this bout

Seems like everyone has turned into a matchmaker for Nate Diaz’s last fight in his UFC contract. Almost everyone except the UFC top brass dismissed the idea of a fight between him and Khamzat Chimaev calling it unavailing and fatuous. But the idea of Michael Chandler vs Nate Diaz excites everyone, including former UFC double champion Daniel Cormier.

During a recent episode of his podcast on his Youtube channel, Cormier discussed the idea of a potential fight between Michael Chandler and Nate Diaz, and how intrigued he is my it.

He even suggested that while Diaz might have a difficult time with any other matchup, he might actually benefit from a fight against Chandler, and wants the UFC to setup the fight as soon as possible. He said,

‘I know my boy

‘Go and sit back for a little’ – Daniel Cormier pleads Tony Ferguson to reflect on his loss rather than poke digs at others

Ferguson’s devastating loss had everyone worried for his health. Especially given the fact that he hasn’t won a single fight or round in his previous four outings. However ‘El Cucuy’ has been at his usual conceited best on Twitter.

Former double champion Daniel Cormier was announced to be inducted into the modern wing of Hall of Fame 2024. And while everyone started congratulating the American on his illustrious career, Ferguson poked fun at his ‘towel-gate’ incident, in the aftermath of Charles Oiveira missing weight at UFC 274.

Tony posted a tweet saying, ‘ How Not to Make Weight Ladies & Gentlemen. Shoulda Stripped Em’ Like They Did @CharlesDoBronxs Shout Out To All Those Doin’ It Right & Keepin’ The Sport Clean  – Champ  -CSO-  # CuttingWeight Feeling Great  @espnmma’

A visibly perturbed and distressed Daniel Cormier urged that Tony should use this time to reflect on his humbling loss, and said, ‘ Tony please stop. Go and sit back for a little, tuck your head in a hole somewhere. Regroup man , recover spend some time with your family. Like just please stop! I plead with you. It is not a good look. Like you’re making me sad.’
